Connect & CleanÂ® Light Bulb Changers
I have used this one time to replace an R30 bulb in a very tight fixture. Replacing bulbs by hand has been very difficult. Using this bulb changer (without the pole) worked very well. Wish I had bought one years ago.

Works for me!
I have 10 foot ceilings with recessed lights and hate ladders. I've been looking for a reliable changer and since The Container Store is "my got to" I decided to try this one. As soon as it arrived I tried it out, and yes, I read the instructions and it worked 1st try with no issues. My problem is solved and I'm very pleased.

I have been using a different brand bulb changer which didn't work well (at all!) with CFL bulbs, so I purchased this product hoping it would work any better. It works excellent!! It made my life so much easier. Now I love changing bulbs anywhere in my house.

Great for removing lights not so go for installing
We have 20 foot ceilings so replacing the lights in our recessed lighting is a challenge. We'd used the standard single suction cup devices but found that the suction cup tended to just twist and spin when you tried to remove an old light so it was basically useless. The 6 suction cups on this product eliminate that problem. Taking down lightbulb was a BREEZE. Even the lightbulb that was misthreaded 3 years ago and has sat there stuck all this time.
However, when we went to put in the new bulb you cannot get the suction cups to release because they are so strong. The directions say to tilt from side to side until the plastic collar creates some tension and it releases. However, there is a lot of give in many light fixtures and our ceilings are so high (my husband was on an 8 ft ladder) that we could never get it tilted far enough to one side for it to release. We had to go back to the traditional 1 suction cup pole to put the light bulb back up.
