What LED can lights are you looking at? Usually the springs are to secure the LED into an existing can as a replacement for an incandescent bulb. The springs hold up the LED like the baffle trim is secured in a standard can light. I've not seen ones designed to secure directly to drywall, that doesn't sound UL or IEEE approved at all.

Well, that's a new one to me. But you're right they are made to just clip to the drywall. Buy a couple extras because those aren't replaceable bulbs, if one goes out you'll need to replace the hole unit.
