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.
I was trying to change chandelier lights (60w bulb) that are upward facing. This contraption is way too tight! I was pushing down over the bulb with modest strength, the opening not making any progress at all, and the chandelier was swaying a bit dangerously. I was expecting it to slip over the bulb with a little less effort/downward force.
Maybe it is safe, I don't know, but I'll look for something that's slips over the bulb a bit easier.
I received my item today, 3-31-21. I had 18 CFL bulbs to change out in my workshop. The spring broke on the second bulb. Instead of sending ti back for replacement, I modified it to work for me. Got my 18 bulbs changed, and the next time I need to change them I'll just make a bulb changer. I can't rate this item for incandescent bulbs but would not recommend it for CFLs.
I could not get this product to work to change the light bulbs! The basket would not hold the light and the suction did not hold either. After several tries, I was frustrated and gave up!!! I would not recommend. It's easier to get on a ladder and change the lights if you can reach.
This was to replace a bulb changing head I had which cracked at the site of the little nut that holds the head on. The design on this defies logic; it is threaded exactly the same as my lightbulbs, so unless I want to leave the bulb or the head up in the fixture, I need to tighten that nut pretty darn hard. But too far...and it cracks.
This may work for people who have normal-height ceilings (8-9 ft) and need to change pot lights, but my 14-ft ceilings say no way. I have to get out the big ladder and climb up there... which this is supposed to prevent from happening.
It would be better designed if there were maybe 2 tightening nuts or instead of a threaded attachment, use a locking type.
