Down light fixings

Postby grumpyoldjoe » Thu Dec 22, 2011 9:49 am

I have down lights in the kitchen ceiling and have just dropped one down to touch up some paint work.
On trying to refit one of the springs has flown off into the ceiling space and I cant get it back therefore the light is no longer sitting flush.
Does anyone know if these springs can be bought anywhere on line? I'm dizzy after hours of searching but I cant find anything apart from a new complete fitting which aint cheap.
Thanks in advance

Simply Build It

Get it back with one of them telescopic magnets from the pound shop. maybe you'll see where it went with a small torch and mirror? or stick a camera phone up the hole and take a few photos, see if you can locate it? is it impossable to lift a floorboard and have a look? just a few ideas. might help, might not!
