Halo New Construction 4"

I am wondering if anyone knows if it is able to open up one of these units once the Sheetrock is up in a basement. It appears that one of the wires wasn't pushed all the way in and now the ceiling is up and I am trying to avoid cutting a hole in a new ceiling. Please let me know how if it is possible.


Thank you,
Mike

Most new construction have the junction box outside the fixture.

No, not possible with an IC rated new construction fixture. If you remember which side the junction box is on, make a nice sized hole on that side of the fixture with a rotozip (between the joists), save the cutout and repair it by inserting a couple pieces of 1x4 into the drywall... screw though the drywall into the 1x4, then reinstall the section you cut out.
