For the master bath project, I mentioned I was using retrofit LED lights. Here’s how.
Out of the box, they look like this.
I clip off the plug and hard wire them into my light circuit.
Those wire “whiskers” are there to hold the device into the cans. I dont have cans. So I bent them to better hold drywall from behind.
I bought a hole driller from China Freight. Then practiced on some scrap drywall. It was difficult and I needed some practice. I recommend a light hand and slow speed drill.
And completed, they will look like this.
