    Then, I always thought j-boxes needed to be mounted...but you just "float" these?

    On the new work install with those "pans"...are you pre-installing the j-box and mounting it to the joist near the pan?
    iirc, the way they are listed as something other than a jbox and do not require mounting.

    eta: here's two mfg installation videos that do not show the driver/junction box being hard mounted:

    Not saying that is by code, but there you go.
