This 11 in. Ceiling Support is for use on low sloping ceilings or any installation where the finished ceiling surface is not yet installed. When the finished ceiling surface (sheetrock, wood or other material) then it should be installed snug up to this box. There is a metal trim kit that is available to cover unsightly cuts in the ceiling but we find that it is often more attractive to make the cuts carefully and finish the sheetrock finish up to the box for a clean installation. If your ceiling surface is already installed then you can use the 6WCS ceiling support with a trim already installed on it to cover your cut of the ceiling.
