Connect & CleanÂ® Light Bulb Changers
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.

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 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.

Doesn't work with LED flood lights
I bought this to change out the recessed light bulbs we have in very high places. The incandescent type with a rounded head went okay. I did have trouble getting the suction cups to release (like the other reviewer) and worried about breaking the entire light bulb or socket. I made it work though.
For the LED bulbs that I bought for other areas (apparently going to be the only allowable option in WA state somewhat soon), the suction cups are too shallow and wouldn't attach the bulb at all. It has a flat surface, not rounded. The plastic surface has a subtle texture on it so that doesn't help with suction at all. In addition, the LED bulb weighs 1 lb 2.7 oz compared to 3.7 oz for the incandescent flood light bulb. The suction cups on this device aren't strong enough. It's a real bummer because I realized all of this after getting our Little Giant ladder extended to the max and removing the existing bulbs to discover that I have to hire a handyman to change these 30 ft high bulbs. At least the bulbs are supposed to last 20+ years!
I know the product description doesn't specifically address LED bulbs, but they are our future. Hopefully a product can be developed to aid in changing these.
