NIK -- what is that thing? I wonder if it includes the *nub*-remover tool?
Looks like I have a trip to the hardware store in my future.....but first, I think I'll buy some stock in the light bulb company!

It's a kit I use for the flood lights on the peaks of my garage roofline. Long pole that adjusts in length plus a couple of different heads for various light bulb types. I think it cost me $15?

Why? What donor car -- the one that had the working battery? Is this your way of saying that your own battery is dead OR that I might now have *issues* with the previously-working-fine car?


I am totally getting one of those kit-things. I also have a light burnt out over the bathtub that I can't reach......

Also effective for getting kids off ... well, you know

Just the other day I changed my neighbor's headlight out while he babysat my daughter. I'm the manliest man on the block!

Well, that couldn't have been so hard ...

TR - Your such a smartass I love it.

Gonna - The telescoping light bulb changer is a must. We have a Cathedral ceiling in the great room, and it's the only way to change those bulbs. Our kit came with a suction cup thingy for the can lights that you can't fit the springy light bulb hanger around.
I use it to change the can lights in my kitchen, because otherwise I'd have to drag a ladder in from the garage.

Oh an you may want to stock up on bulbs when your at the store getting your kit, because the incandesant bulbs are no longer allowed in the US, now you have to buy save the earth curly fry bulbs that don't get as bright, and cost 4x as much. My H just went and bought up all of them he could find......but he's a borderline prepper/hoarder. LOL

Seriously??? But, I don't like the twisty ones!


I just got back from getting the kit -- it includes the suction cup and also a bulb extractor.

For the extractor thing -- I know the *best* (probably smartest) thing to do is cut power to the light at the circuit box, but is it mandatory to do that, or can I just turn the light off at the switch?

If you're using an all-plastic tool the switch should be fine. If you're using a conductive potato I'd say kill the circuit before it kills you!

Holy crap. That extractor thingy is awesome! I want to go break off more light bulbs (only the reachable ones, though (see below)) so that I can use it again. Took 5 seconds -- and I didn't get zapped.

Sadly, I still have to go into my cold garage and lug my cob-webby ladder inside because the extender pole is still too short for me to reach those high bulbs.


If you're using a conductive potato


Since the extractor thing was plastic/rubber, I lived dangerously and just had the switch off. No problem.

Nothing significant, gonna. The thread kept going, and it's such a great opportunity to hassle you ....

What else do you need to do?
I can talk you through laying ceramic tile, or wood floors or any type of woodwork from baseboards to crown molding.

Or if you want to learn how to crappie fish and clean and cook em I can learn ya that.

Hey Tush. I'm totally a 'catch & release' kinda girl. Don't eat fish and I'm sure as shit not gonna cut one open and empty its insides -- that would make me puke (for realz)

So all my light bulbs are changed out now. Oldest son was home today, so he did the really high ones in the living room with no problem. I did the one in my bathroom. Bulb came out just fine using the suction cup thingy, but I must have yanked the 'suction-cup release' string when I went to put the new one in because it un-suctioned and smashed all over the dang place So, I switched from the suction thingy to the cage-looking thingy and got it handled.

Hmmmmm......what else? My front door handle-latch is broken.

Man, you guys must picture me living in a decrepit looking, unlit house with non-running cars sitting around

Oh. How do you reprogram the garage-door opening number pad (the one on the outside of the garage) if you don't know the previous code?

Awesome! Truly-- I feel the same way when I do something that used to be XWH's domain. You have no idea how proud I was of myself when I changed my car's lightbulb last summer (with DD's "help"). We were very proud of ourselves!

Do you still have the manual for your opener? If not, Google the make and model. You can often find the manual online.

ps - You are kicking ass and taking names, gonna. Go you!

Gonna - Cleaning Crappie is not messy, don't even touch the icky parts, just fillet off the yummy ones. LOL

Oh the Garage key pad. Google your make and model, probably have a user manual on line. OR my favorite, cause I'm a visual learner, do a Utube search for this.

I have reprogrammed my key locks, and car key with this method. I also showed my H how to fix my Power steering pump with one.

YAY Gonna!!!!!!!!!!

I find my how to info from You Tube or DIY sites. It's nice not needing him for things.

Can't wait to hear what else you fix.

My car battery went dead this morning on my way to yoga so I drove the truck and jump started my car when I got home.

I thought of your post and also wondered if I was going to blow anything up! I thought to call over my handy neighbor but no. I know I can do this and thought of you and did it myself. All good.

Now the low tire pressure indicator is on but I can't see that I have a flat tire. I live 20 miles from town and have to decide to risk the ride in...
