I removed all the cheap LED “recessed” lights from my ceiling and replaced them with Hue recessed lights. These lights are intended to be screwed into a traditional recessed can, but I just cut the wires and directly attached them to the wiring in the ceiling. They work just fine.
The problem is that I cannot find a good way to strongly attach them to the ceiling. Below you’ll see a photo of what I’m talking about. The only thing I could think of was using a strong adhesive tape around the edge of the trim and push it up against the ceiling. This works for a time but it always comes a little loose in the average case or just falls off completely in the worst case.
The trim is slightly curved, so it makes it tricky to be in full contact with the trim and the ceiling.
What is the best option for permanently attaching these lights so they stay nice and flush with the ceiling? I imagine the heat from the light is what is eventually weakening the adhesive. I’ve had better luck with the strong clear adhesive (that smells like super glue…), but eventually those will come a little loose so you can see a little gap between the light and the ceiling.
