These cans are defective--they're springing leaks!

It's worse than I thought.

I got my retrofit kits in the mail today and inspected the situation. I took the old reflector out and there's nothing there but a hole in the ceiling. The kits need a can around the reflector. We've got this and need this. So I'll probably buy them, but now instead of this being a simple screw-in-the-new-light it's a wiring project. Which I don't mind--the gaping hole in the ceiling when I pulled out the reflector only steeled my resolve to seal the holes and stop the heat loss. It's obscene.
