I was changing my first 50W halogen bulb yesterday in over a decade. I don't
know why but I /thought/
the recessed trim pulled down (like an attic
ladder) to allow easier access to the bulb. In pulling the housing away from
the trim, I inadvertently stretched both tension springs that hold said
housing firmly against the trim. Now the housing is pulled 1/4" to 1/2" away
from being flush with the ceiling. I looks terrible.
Are there springs available for this type of product? I couldn't find a name
anywhere on the housing nor does my local hardware shop (which carried this
product 10 years ago when we remodeled) know of where to purchase something.
The housing and trim I saw yesterday are not only different in color but
also different in style so that's a no-go, too.
Many thanks for any leads or ideas.
