Saw this in a NJ Costco last weekend. YMMV since Utility Discount varies. $16.99 - $14 instant utility rebate = $2.99. Sales tax on pre-discount price. so out of door price is about $4 / 2-pack

Costco SKU = 1057864

Amazon review [amazon.com].

I have installed several 1,290 Lumens version of this light at home. little noise. very bright. The only problem is the two "spring ears" cannot keep the lights stay for long time. But I used one screw and adjust its position to make the light just snap into the original housing. Then it stays.

I am renovating my basement now. After looking at the halo hi hats, I found out that I should remove the old white or black trim first. Then there are two brackets on the hihat itself where I can snap the spring ears in. It is very easy and stay there tightly now.

I've seen these, but don't understand why someone would go through the hassle of installation instead of just using an LED bulb in the existing socket and fixture.

These are super easy to install, maybe 1-2 minutes per light and the light that comes out is much better and evenly distributed rather than just putting a new bulb in.

In my case I have the very old style recessed lights with black trim. These make for a good refresh in a re-model.

Because they look great. They have a very finished, modern, clean look vs a open hole with a bulb slapped in there. Plus they are simple to install, maybe 5 mins ea.

Just got the same items at Northern NJ Costco, these are $14-$7 instant rebate. Comes out to be $7 for 2. Not bad price, these are like half off. Also get some LED BR30 flood lights. Those are even cheaper. This seems only NJ only. NY doesn't have the utility rebate.

Thanks for the answers! I replaced my black baffles with chrome ones a decade ago when I bought the house and forgot about them. Based on the love here, I'll have to check these out again, especially if the price is right. If I still have any without LEDs....

so are these replaceable? As in when/if they die, is there something to replace or would you simply have to replace the whole retrofit kit?

Yes you just have to plug in a replacement light. I initially thought what you did but it is a pretty easy swap.

Costco jacked up the price of $2.99 from two weekends ago to $6.99 this past weekend. Remember also that tax is on the original $16.99 per box so you're effectively paying $9.15 per box.

I have the brighter version of these and use with Lutron Maestro dimmers. Only gripe as OP said the springs suck and they really do suck when installing into the aluminum bin. I have CREE retrofit in bedrooms and they use 3 socket mechanism.
