A few questions on hi hat lights.
I have these exterior hi hats all the way up there, over 20 feet tall. I
know there are light bulb grabbers that can change the bulbs, but I have to
pull off these spring loaded covers before I can change them. How do I get
up there? A very tall ladder? I have to sort of search out to change it
even with a tall ladder and I don't feel comfortable doing it, not keeping
good balance and it's not easy to remove the cover which has two clamps on
each side. Any idea?
Since I have a row of these along the eave, on each side and also along the
interior corridor. There are like 48 bulbs I need to change. The cost of
light bulbs add up real quick, I was going to get regular bulbs at $2-$3 a
piece, but then I saw these flourescent bulbs that sells for $7 for a set of
The box says it's 60W...so I am tempted, but there was another guy there
said these bulbs are not bright compared to the incandescent and they
flicker a lot and they take a good few seconds to come on. Is this true?
Any thoughts whether I should use the florescent bulbs? Are the 60w
floscent same brightness as the 60w incandescent?
Finally, one of the hi-hat covers is missing, and since all of them looks
the same I am trying to find a matching one. HD does not carry anything
like it, any idea where I might be able to find one? It is a white circular
rim with a piece of round glass in the middle held in place by two clamps.
Thanks in advance,
