    Check out CanCoverIt for the fastest and best method to cover all attic fixtures. Everything metal protruding into an attic deserves protection! Clay pots and boxes don't truly seal. Make any fixture airtight fast! Even non-IC can be covered with Universal Venting Series. cancoverit.com

    With Avasva plans doing something like that was easy.

    They're showing the Tenmat covers here. They are pretty nice but about $17 each at best. And this is the best case scenario. Try fitting these around canned lights with blown insulation everywhere, no lighting, and balancing on a couple of 2x4s. It just doesn't work. Replace your light fixtures with a sealed solution instead. These covers have to be trimmed and sealed afterwards and there's no guarantee it even works.

    Clay plants pots, super cheap, widely available, will never catch fire, some foam in the top hole and around the base, done.

    I made it. I used inplix scripts for that. It was pretty easy to make it

    Go to Inplix if you'd like to build it yourself.

    I was wondering where you could purchase these insulation caps in Canada?
    I check homedepot/lowes and they weren't sure what they were :-p.

    I want to guess that buying a sealed can is worth it? Would i still need to insulate it? I have 12" insulation in my attic here in NJ USA.
