          The Commercial Electric ultra slim recessed lighting kits are the recessed lights of the future. Not only is each fixture is designed specifically for small spaces where height clearance is limited such as beams or ductwork, you can change the color temperature with a flick of a button. The integrated color changing switch is located on the cable so you can choose between a 3000, 4000 or 5000K temperature to best suit your needs. 3000K is perfect for relaxing, 4000K is the ideal choice for everyday affairs and 5000K is great for task lighting in a basement, hallway or work area. ENERGY STAR certified and insulation contact rated for direct contact with insulation, these lights won't overheat, do not require a bulky can and will last for years to come - 50 000 hours or approximately 34 years if used for 4 hours per day to be exact. Wet rated and certified airtight, this 6 in. kit is perfect for your bathroom, drop ceilings, outdoor soffits, larger spaces and all general lighting applications. The smooth baffle is designed to absorb excess light and reduce glare significantly - quintessential for the glasses wearers in your home.

          The installation of this light is the easiest light I have ever installed. I also like the idea of being able to switch between Daylight, bright light and soft light.

          GearWrench Open End ratcheting wrenches need as little as 5-Degree to move the fastener as opposed to 30-Degree for standard box end wrenches. Open end ratcheting allows ratcheting of nuts and bolts without removing the wrench from the fastener, making jobs faster and easier. The box end features improved strength from GearWrench Surface Drive technology and at the same time, reduces fastener rounding. These ratcheting wrenches are made from premium alloy steel for a precision, long lasting tool.

          HDX shipping packaging tape is an excellent choice for sealing shipping, moving, and storage cartons. Tape rolls hold well in cold and hot humid temperatures. This 2-pack can be used in tape dispensers. Each roll can tape up to 20 medium boxes. Each tape is 1.88 inches wide x 55 yards long. Besides using this tape for sealing boxes I found it excellent for attaching labels to the packages that I have sealed.
          Pros: Easy to Use, High Quality, Sturdy

          After I install the box, what do I use from the box to the fridge. Copper tubing or can I use something else?

          Is it possible to use copper behind existing drywall?

          Asked by

          Illinois
          July 18, 2016
          I know all Sharkbites work with copper, but I'm asking if I can use copper in a retrofit situation where I will be cutting a hole in drywall to place the box.
          I would llike to use 1/2" copper up to the hole from the crawl space, but since it is stiff, I'm not sure if it is possible to maneuver to get enough leverage to push the fitting on the copper.
          If I use PEX am I right that the way to do it is to pull the PEX out of the hole and push the fitting on, then insert the box in the hole?
          I'm wondering if that means PEX is the only option for a situation like this with existing drywall.
          Am I missing something simple? I'd like to use copper if I can. Thanks.

          Answer: 
          Yes you can use 1/2 inch copper pipe behind the dry wall. Make sure you support the piping from moving.

The hand applied bronze finish features silver highlights to give this fixture a timeless look.

          Can the two bulbs in this fixture be separately wired to two different wall switches?
