I found the Elite 5" can to have poor workmanship compared to the original USA light 5" can I have purchased from you over the years. The airtight gasket on the elite can was poorly applied, not uniformed neatly around the can, or it was overlapped causing a high spot which made the can not seat properly on the sheet rock.
