To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
No me sirvió, es mas pequeño de lo que parece y solo sirve para focos de incandescentes, no sirve para los focos ahorradores actuales ya que es muy pequeño, no lo recomiendo. Peor aun, este articulo no se puede devolver asi que dinero tirado a la basura.
The thumbscrew will not tighten enough to keep the unit from unscrewing from the pole, and when I attempted to tighten it, the threads stripped. I finally taped the unit to the pole to keep it secured. It half-worked. I was able to get the old bulb out and the new bulb in, but I couldn't get it to fully get the new bulb tight enough. Fortunately, I'd also purchased an attachment with the suction cup, which had a much better tightening mechanism. That finished the job. I don't feel like taping it back to the pole each time I'd need it.
My family of short people were excited about this tool. We were able to change bulbs in the basement and the garage that we normally couldn't reach without a chair or ladder.
The tool works great while it lasts. Unfortunately it doesn't seem very sturdy. My original one broke right around where the screw tightens down. I blamed it on myself for probably over tightening the screw, so I bought a replacement and made extra sure to be careful. That one failed in the same spot.
As such, I'm not going to buy a third one, and I would have trouble recommending it to anyone else.
I read the reviews prior to buying and I should have paid attention. They claim that this can be attached to a broom handle to reach the lightbulb. The opening to insert a handle is very small and a standard broom handle is way too big to fit. I looked through all my stuff and was able to find something that would fit, but I would guess most people don't have something around the house that will work. I did successfully change 1 light bulb, but it was hard to do. There has to be something better than this. I know! A husband!
I was happy this fit the window cleaning extension stick I have, however my joy was short lived. When I tried to tighten it, I found a tiny crack. Decided to return this one and find one from my local Home Depot so I can check before I buy. Sorry, Amazon.
I got 2 users out of this. The problem is that the screw that secures the bulb holder to the pole is just threaded into soft plastic. The second time I attached it to the pole, the screw stripped the threads. Without the screw, the bulb holder just turns on the threaded pole and can't turn the bulb. Not recommended
