How to Change a Recessed Light Without a Ladder


Are you tired of lugging around a ladder to change recessed lighting in your home? If you have many recessed lights scattered throughout your house, hauling a ladder around to change them is too monotonous and tiring. There is an easier solution called a light bulb changer kit. This invention allows you to reach recessed lights by taking advantage of the telescoping 11-ft pole and a recessed light accessory.

Things You'll Need

  • Telescoping wand
  • Screw on the recessed light accessory to the front of the telescoping wand.

  • Twist the the telescoping wand to the correct length, and lock it in place with a counterclockwise twist.

  • Raise the wand over your head, and surround the recessed light with the metal cradle accessory. It looks like a metal net that surrounds the bulb tightly.

  • Turn the telescoping wand counterclockwise to remove the recessed light. Carefully bring the telescoping wand down towards you, and take the recessed light out of the metal cradle and dispose of it.

  • Add a new recessed light to the metal cradle and raise the telescoping wand up towards the empty recessed light. Insert the bulb, and turn clockwise until the light turns on. Repeat this process to change all burned out recessed lights.

Tips & Warnings

  • Do not remove recessed lights that are turned on. The heat from the light could burn your skin when you try to dispose of them. Turn the lights off and wait for them to cool.
