I am looking at converting about (400) Atlite A149 cans over to LED's...

Most LED inserts have spring clips that use existing tabs inside the fixture to hold the LED assembly...

Atlite fixtures are a one piece can.. but HALO LED inserts has a fix for this...

I can remove the can and screw (2) clips onto the old housing that would hold the spring clips.....

But the fixture would not have the socket assembly "enclosed" like a Halo fixture would...

Is this code compliant...



The housing would look something like this once the fixture can is removed...

Have you no pride?
I'm asking a simple question and trying to find a simple solution....

Making a stupid remark like that does nothing to solve the problem.. :no::no:

How big is the can? Halo also makes friction fits.

And I would say, definitely, if you brutalize a fixture it isn't code compliant.

Is the new trim listed for the can they'll be installed in?

Someone here posted the relevant 410 change in the '14 , which was addressing the listing(s) of the ever popular retro's of late B4T

I always associated Atlite as the less expensive version of Lightolier Lytecaster recessed lights

In the past I have interchanged trims and housing between the brands. :jester:

Did you look into the lightolier LED kits?
