  • This seemed like the perfect answer. Won't have to get the ladder out for our 10' ceilings. First the unit is very light duty. Getting the bulb out was tough enough since turning it counter clockwise wants to untighten the pole extensions. The tightening screw for the head is screwed through very thin and light weight plastic. Finally got the bulb out and started to put the new bulb in. It would not screw all the way in and when I tried to get the unit off the bulb it would not come off. Tried for over five minutes and finally went and got the ladder. Well, now the hard part. The spring loaded unit would not come off the bulb and not come out of the ceiling unit. If I pulled hard the lighting unit would come out of the ceiling. Had to bend the spring loaded arms and fight with the spring to get it off. Saw no redeeming features in the whole thing. Back to the ladder.

  • What a piece of junk and a waste of money. Very cheaply made and did not work as advertised.

  • We used this to replace burned out recessed flood lights in our vaulted ceiling. It was a little scary at first, but the suction cup held the bulb as we removed the bulbs and as we put in new ones. The string attached to the suction cup does twist around the pole but it is easy to "untwist" it to release the suction when the replacement bulb is installed.

  • For a person 5'2" in a home with high ceilings this kit makes changing lights bulbs a piece of cake! No more climbing ladders, standing on tables, etc.!

  • I am not very skilled at household fixes but this is so easy that anyone can use it. I have very high ceilings and it is a snap to change a bulb. Be sure to attach the string…its the only way to get the pole to release from the bulb once in.

  • I have floods I have to change every few months. 8 of them. They are all at an angle and the wide attachment just doesn't work when the socket is at an angle. There is not enough tension or stickiness to the yellow rubber pieces. They should be thicker and more rubbery as opposed to plastic so they grip the bulb better.. The springs around the attachment should also be thicker and stronger so they hold it. The whole thing just stretches out after changing a few bulbs because the materials are so cheap. I have wasted a lot of money in broken bulbs trying to use this thing.

  • Works, but has issues - best not used with LED flood lights

  • I just bought my third changer kit. My main issue is that the poles are not very robust and the plastic locking mechanism inside the poles that expands and locks the extended pole tends to break. After my first pole broke, I was very careful with the next one, but it broke as well in the same manner. I just bought the 3rd unit and for the first time I attempted to install the (very expensive) LED version of the inside flood (BR40) bulbs that are in my high ceiling. The LED bulb is a slightly different geometry and once screwed into the recessed can with this changer, I can't get the changer off the bulb! When I pull down the entire can comes out of my ceiling. Evidently there is not enough room between the inside edge the of the can and the LED bulb for the changer to release. Now I'm left with the changer hanging from my ceiling and I'm going to have to find a way to get up to the 16' can to get the changer off the bulb. This unit worked fine with the incandescent BR40 bulbs, but watch out with the LED version! You may end up with the changer hanging from your ceiling like me.
