Want to change from Eyeball down-lights - to another type?

Postby Jumos » Fri Feb 25, 2011 11:02 pm


We have some large eyeball down lights X 4, fitted in our kitchen ceiling!

We are so fed up with them; and it is so difficult to change a bulb, the threads wore away on one lot of fittings, so we had them changed; and the new ones are very difficult when trying to remove or fit a bulb!

Is there a light fitting available that would replace the eyeball and threaded bulb fitting - for a fitting that would fit in the place of the eyeball fitting; and would fit in to the hole where the eyeball fitting resides! Preferably a fitting that takes a bayonet or push in bulb. can anyone recommend a solution? to this problem! Here's a photo of the light fitting we'd like to replace.



Need to replace these for something easier to manage when changing bulbs - we have four of these fitted in our kitchen ceiling, would like to replace them without altering the holes in the ceiling.
