Replace fixture into recessed lighting holder

I inadvertently pulled the fixture out of a recessed light in my ceiling. The big round tube is in the ceiling. The fixture is hanging by the wire. There is a bent clip attached to the fixture, but I cannot see any manner to reconnect it back into the "silo".

Welcome to the forums!

Your picture is very small but it appears to be a spring clip. It just holds the trim ring up with spring tension.

I don't recall seeing a can like that. A brand name or bigger picture would sure be helpful.
