If you've worked with two-by-six joists before, you understand that not all recessed lighting housings are small enough to fit in these shallow ceilings. The H27T has a low profile that makes it ideal for these situations.
Like most of Halo's recessed lighting fixtures, the H7ICAT is designed for ease of installation and flexibility across a variety of materials and situations. The hanger bars include pre-installed nails (self-tapping screws are also available) in special housings that ensure smooth, straight penetration, whether you're working with laminated composites, engineered I-joists, open-web joist plates, or even frozen lumber. The automatic leveling flanges allow you to hold the housing securely in place with one hand while driving nails with the other. The housing also includes integral T-bar clips for use with suspended ceiling T-grid systems.
Halo also makes it easy to work in confined spaces. To install in joist spans of less than 12 inches, simply collapse the hanger bars then bend and break them along the score lines--no tools needed. The bars can also be removed and repositioned on the opposite side of the frame if you need to mount the unit at 90 degrees to the original configuration. Wiring is a breeze with Halo's patented Slide-N-Side wiring system, which allows wiring outside the junction box.
While this unit is not IC-rated, you can install with insulation as long as you keep it at least three inches from the housing. For safety, the fixture includes a self-resetting thermal protector that deactivates the fixture if it overheats.
Available with a variety of trim options (sold separately). UL damp location and feed-through rated; CSA certified.--Josh Dettweiler

Worked great for fitting in tight spots. But I'm having trouble with LED retrofits. The light does not want to fit flush with the ceiling.
Update: I had to remove the Edison screw base and directly wire the LED retrofits to the can. The retrofits now fit tight and flush.
Great product, but easily damaged during shipping due to its lightweight design... I had to bend several tabs back into place on multiple units. Luckily, they install so easily that it doesn't matter much. I even uninstalled and installed again a few times with the first one and it was still incredibly easy.
Needed these for install in porch ceiling with 6 inch rafters. Check local code for this type of application. For the money these boxes have all the bells and whistles: thermal overload, fully adjustable legs, easy wiring splices, adjustable cans and light mounts. Install very easy. Would recommend these to a friend for sure.
