A light bulb changer for high ceilings is a device that helps you to change a light bulb that is located high up on a ceiling. It typically consists of a long pole with a hook or clamp on the end, which you use to reach up and secure the light bulb.
Once the bulb is secure, you can then unscrew it and replace it with a new one.
I have a ceiling fan in a 2 1/2 story open area. You need at least a 25 foot ladder, a spotter, and no fear of heights to change the bulbs or wash the glass shades. I was down to my last lit bulb (of 5) and was contemplating purchasing a $200 ladder so that once every 5 years I can change these bulbs.
(Yeah. I hear how stupid that sounds. ) I have a bulb changing pole for my outdoor floodlights but it has never worked well so I kind of disregarded something similar for the ceiling fan. Out of desperation, I bought the $17 set and figured I would at least try it.
I was astonished how far the pole could be extended. I could reach the bulbs from the main floor without having to also be on a ladder or the stairway. I easily extracted two lights and replaced them.
The other two separated from their bases. I was able to get one out using the base extractor, but have not been able to get the other one out. I tried using a latex glove over the extractor, but the whole socket started to unscrew so I just left it.
The fixture is over 30 years old and was one of those ‘builder’s specials’ that are more for looks than function. The fan quit a while ago and the whole fixture needs to be replaced. Better yet, the part of the fan with the lights can spin separately from the fan itself, so you have to catch the socket to work on it.
Also, those bulbs were likely very old – 15 years or more – so may not have been sturdy enough to tolerate a very kinetic removal/replacement system like this. I’m thinking that if the fixture and bulbs had been of more recent vintage it is likely I could have managed switching all of the bulbs out without an issue.
The photos that come with the directions are not very helpful – very small and lightly inked so they are hard to see. The explanations are scant. Even the packaging itself isn’t real clear about how you use all the parts together.
The duster that comes with it had fallen out of 2 of the 3 sets they had at the store; obviously their packaging isn’t a strong point. All of that said, I am still very impressed with this set and would recommend it to anyone else with a tough fixture to reach.
I confess, I was leery about this item when I bought it to change a bulb in a can light in the ceiling. However, that silicon disc attachment worked perfectly to remove the burned out bulb and then to replace it with a new one.
It worked so well that I then headed outside with the “spring wire cage” attachment to remove a high-up flood light with a big cactus patch underneath it. It was a trial and error struggle to get the cage over the larger sized PAR38 floodlight, but I managed to do so after a few minutes and then easily removed the burned out bulb.
Probably would be so much easier to do with smaller sized floodlights and/or a fixture that doesn’t allow you to move the position of the lights. Then, putting in the new floodlight went well, but dislodging the wire cage was another struggle.
Eventually, the pole pulled off of the cage, leaving the cage dangling on the bulb. In the end, I duct taped a hook to the pole, tugged at the spring wire cage, got it released from the bulb, and then all was fine, including the pole and attachments.
Overall, I’m delighted I bought this item as it works, sometimes with a little extra effort, for hard to reach bulbs. It saved me oodles of money compared to paying an acrobatic handyman with no fear of heights and cactus.
My ceiling recess bulb was near the middle of a high ceiling room, making it very hard and unsafe to work on a ladder. I searched the internet about other options and found this product “Bayco LBC-602D 7-piece Light Bulb Changing Kit” and purchased.
I used suction cup which come in the package. It worked very well for both taking out the bunt recess light bulb and placing a new bulb. I consider this product one of the best tools I ever purchased.

I bought this for my husband and he loves, we have very high ceilings and he had to climb a tall ladder to change the light globes, now he can do it standing on the floor. A very happy man. Would definitely recommend.
I was a little disappointed that neither bulb gripper worked well on a 175w mercury vapor bulb, as that is what I specially bought it for. Also the thumbscrew did not lock the bulb gripper onto my threaded pole tightly enough to keep it from unscrewing until I drilled a hole in the pole for the thumbscrew to seat into.
Still overall, the quality was good and well worth the $16 I paid for it. Just dont buy it to change very large bulbs.
I don’t know what’s worse a selller that lies to you or a seller that buys on Amazon and sells to you. Well you don’t need to worry about it this seller is both! The product is junk don’t buy it. Go to a big box store and get it for the same price without the hasse.

In some older homes the ceilings are higher and to replace a light bulb means getting out a step stool or ladder. As I get older, I don’t feel as ‘spry’ or comfortable climbing up on something in the middle of a room.
When a light burned out I was going to ask a neighbor to help me but what about the next time, and the next? I had seen items for removing and replacing light bulbs so I went online and found just what I was looking for at Walmart.
I had several poles with screw tips so I thought one would fit the Bulb Changer I ordered and it did. Could anything be simpler or easier? No. Because I was able to stand directly under the light (rather than along side) it was even easier to screw into the light socket.
The construction is practical and durable–the spring with holds the ‘fingers’ around the bulb is strong steel so it will last. This ‘rating’ asks if I would recommend to a friend. After my success with changing the first bulb I wrote several friends to do just that and told my next door neighbor he could borrow mine.
This is worth the price and very easy to use. It’s not a ‘gimmick’ like so many household things sold, this is a real useful tool.

This light bulb changer kit changes almost any type of bulbs, such as recessed and track lighting, standard incandescent, floodlights, fluorescent bulbs, floodlight and more. It comes with an extension pole for high reach.
The lightbulb exchanger works very well in most conditions. I did run into one problem with the suction cup adapter. If the bulb you are removing is on too tight you literally will unwind the suction cup from the end and now your suction cup is high in the ceiling stuck to your lightbulb I have not fixed it yet but I believe some tape on the end between the suction cup and the adapter it screws two should take care of it.
If not for that small design issue I would have given it a five star.
Love this product. So very usefu to me. I have resest ceiling ilghts in my house and since I am short only 5ft tall it makes it hard for me to change the lights. With this product changing lights is a breeze.
Love that is comes with 2 different size bulb gripers one for reg bulbs and one for the bigger reset lights. Also the suction cup is so handy making changing reset lights effortless. Never will I have to worry about climing a step stool or ladder again with a chance of falling.

I thought I was getting a light changer that would remove broken bulbs from socket. We have a heat lamp we use in winter months to help keep outside faucets unfrozen and invariably the bulb gets broken and have to remove the broken glass bulb from socket.
I think it would work well just to change bulb but have not had any to remove. 4 stars since will not work for reason I needed it.

I was hoping I might be able to use this with a standard pole handle with a screw top. However, this is designed to be used only with an unger pole due to the attachment piece. It does mention using an unger pole in the description, but I did the ‘assume’ thing without a picture to clarify.
My attempt at rigging up something failed too. Afterwards, I found that there is an adapter on the site to be used with a standard pole, but I had to search for it – no link from the bulb changer description.
I did not find where you could buy the complete pole except in a kit that cost $189. the shipping was high on this because it shipped from Tool King instead of Wal-mart, so I wasn’t interested in ordering any more products from Tool King.
Instead, I went to my local wal-mart and bought a complete bulb changer kit including the pole for $17. Wish I had done that in the first place and saved the wasted expense of the changer and the shipping! If you don’t have an Unger pole already, or want to buy the adapter, then don’t order this.
