The screw down tabs for holding the fixture above the ceiling are 100 times better than the previous model with the bent flat metal clips; that alone makes it worth buying! The plastic openings for the wires to enter the housing are almost unusable and need much fiddling with, and the new push type electrical connections don't hold the ends of the wires well enough, needing the installer to back out the long screws, lower the housing assembly, and reconnect the wires, wedging them against the walls of the electrical connection "box," in order to push against the push-in connectors, in order for the wires to stay in place. The ideal solution would be to keep the new drywall hold-downs, and add pig tails, three twist on connectors, and a 3/8" knockout cable clamp!

First, there are only two little fins to hold this in place. Really? You realize that these are going into ceilings right? And ceilings predominantly consist of sheet rock? While working up in the attic attaching the power to these, one of the little wings went through the sheet rock and damaged the ceiling. Thanks alot guys. Right, I should have been more careful, of course. But I have to say it didn't take that much to have it go through. Three would certainly have spread the pressure much more evenly. Come on guys, pick up the game. Now, for number two. The joke you play with the weather stripping isn't funny. Make up your minds. Are you going to put it on the side of the can or on the lip? Half and half doesn't work. The wiring connections worked great for me although I have read some complaining about them. If you are installing a bunch of these, buy the hole saw that has blades and a plastic surround. Home Depot carries the Milwaukee version - just be aware that the 5.5 inch measure isn't 5.5 inches. You'll have to go to the 5.75 to get a big enough hole as it is off. Measure your distances to be sure. My recommendation to use these is tempered by my comments - beware.
