Customer Reviews

It works! It works! I had my doubts that it would work when I received it, especially since this was a lighting fixture that was out of reach for me and I am unable to get on a ladder. But I had a pole that I use for something else that was just the right size for the stem of this bulb remover to fit in and all I had to do is make sure that it was tight and started turning it and soon enough the broken piece was released without damaging the fixture. Great product! I am sure it will work well even for high ceilings as long as there is a high enough pole. Apparently this company must make a pole to be used with this bulb remover because the stem has two push knob latches to adhere to the pole. But even with just my pole that did not have holes for these latches, it still worked. Great product to have around the house. 5Actually works! So simple Wow, I'm very impressed with this suction cup! We used it to replace the halogen-type bulb on our front porch that we always keep on. Had to pair with the Unger pole since the light is about 20 feet high.Holding the replacement bulb in my hand, I gently pressed the suction cup on it to test it out. Wow, it really stuck!! We put the device on the pole, went outside, and sure enough, it stuck on the bad light. Easy to unscrew. Brought it down gently. Popped off the old bulb, attached the new one to the suction cup, and was able to screw it back in without any problems. Less than a 5 minute job.I should also add that I have a love/hate relationship with suction cups; every GPS suction cup I have had falls off within minutes, and I refuse to use any GPS suction device to this day. I don't know why it's so difficult to make a suction cup that actually works (especially when it's holding a $300 item) - this suction cup actually does the job and I didn't have any issues with it.I don't think it would work if you were replacing a normal round lightbulb (like a 40 watt bulb from your bathroom vanity) - it needs to be used on the flat halogen-type bulbs. 5Great! Worked like a charm! May need an extension pole for it though. If you're just looking for a short and sweet review: awesome. did it's job. works on recessed lights, but you may need the type of extension pole needed to use this product.long review: we live in a coastal environment and apparently it is a problem with all of the houses that were built by the same people as mine was, that the porch light makes it hard to get the bulbs out. we haven't had an actual porch light for 5+ years. Makes it hard to see when you go out, and if someone comes to your door, and you get spooked easily like me, it makes your heart beat even faster for the fact that you can't see who it is at your door. the way the broken bulb was in the socket, you couldn't just do the old plier trick. so, i considered the rubber knob version on here, and saw too many reviews that said it was crap, and so i looked elsewhere. saw this, and figured from the reviews, i could atleast try it.got my boyfriend on a step stool, because we don't have the type of extension pole that this thing would fit into/onto. He just put it into the broken light bulb screw part and twisted until it came out. Totally relieved.The only con is that if it is a high area you need to get this bulb out of and you don't have the type of extension pole or ladder, then you'd have to buy another product. other than that, i have no qualms about this product. 5Unger #92133 Broken light bulb changer This does not work on chandelier bulbs. I have 2 bulbs that twisted right out of the base, so that left me with 2 stuck bulb bases in my ceiling fan. Saw this product, read the reviews and even though no one mentioned a bulb size, I thought I would give it a try. Wrong. This did nothing to remove a bulb base from the socket. Its too large and wont fit in the socket I'll keep looking for something to get these bases out or try a potato like one reviewer mentioned, (will have to be a tiny tiny tater :o)~) because I'm really not trying to buy another ceiling fan. 2Works great, but REQUIRES a particular Unger extension pole to work! Read before buying -does NOT attach to any other pole! First, let me say that the Unger Bebbe broken bulb changer DOES work, and worked quite well at extracting a broken bulb from a recessed can light 21' high. It's the aggravating, intentionally incompatible design that forces me to give it 2 stars. First, and this is not Unger's fault, the Q&A here on Amazon has completely incorrect answers about the ability to attach it to any pole with a standard screw top - it doesn't. I bought it based on that incorrect information. Worse, Unger's own website claims "This tool works easily with any Unger Pole" - which is also WRONG.Luckily I figured out the incompatibility while at a local hardware store, so I didn't waste another week returning the wrong pole. This product requires one of the Unger poles with the ErgoTec Locking Cone Pole Adaptor on the end - so that the adapter can be removed exposing the clip-lock end of the pole. Compatible poles are the OptiLoc and TelePlus products. But the cheaper Unger Connect-and-Clean and UniTec poles will NOT attach to any of the Unger bulb-changing products. Which is embarrassing, as the product packaging itself advertises the Connect-and-Clean system! Had Unger simply used a female screw connection like so many other accessories, the Bebbe would be perfect for the job.Lastly, the plastic shield used to catch falling debris is poorly designed, and should not be used with recessed can lights if you can't reach the fixture. The shield gets snagged by the trim ring of the fixture, and because it's just loosely slipped onto the pole - it comes off, wedging itself in the fixture. In my case it took me 15 minutes of trying and cursing to remove it from 21' in the air. My advice is to avoid using it - just be careful of falling debris and clean up any mess. 2Works great! First, I must say that the earlier comment of "Works great, but REQUIRES a particular Unger extension pole to work!" is incorrect. I didn't know I was supposed to order an extension pole so I didn't get one. Still, I was able to unscrew a broken light bulb's base in less than a minute by using the broken light bulb changer.The broken light bulb base had earlier defied my efforts to remove it by using pliers. In the process, I managed to mess up the screw-in base much worse than it had been before. It bent badly. I had my doubts that I would ever get the base out but ordered the Unger #92133 Broken Light Bulb Changer hoping it might work. I didn't order any extension pole because I didn't know that was suggested. The instructions that came with the changer say to screw it into the extension pole. Since I didn't have one, I simply decided to try it without a pole. It worked.I shoved the two prongs into the broken light bulb base and twisted real hard. Nothing moved. I then took a screwdriver and inserted it horizontally through the loop in the bottom of the Light Bulb Changer (see the loop in the picture above) in order to gain a bit more leverage. I gave the screwdriver handle a hard shove and the light bulb socket started to unscrew itself. A couple more shoves and everything loosened up. The broken light bulb socket then was easily unscrewed by using my fingers alone.Before ordering the broken light bulb changer, I thought maybe I would have to replace the entire (and expensive) combination ceiling light and fan. Buying the broken light bulb changer saved money and a lot of work as it would have taken much longer to replace the entire ceiling light and fan. 5Works on CFLs with Unger Aluminum Telescopic Pole with Removeable Cone and Universal Thread, 11' I found that this does work with larger CFLs ("curly" compact fluorescent bulbs) by purposely sticking some of the bulb changer fingers through the CENTER of the bulb, rather than try to fit all of the fingers around the perimeter of the bulb. This is especially true if trying to retrieve an already installed bulb. The bigger issue is trying to find a compatible extension pole that accepts a push-style interface. You might be better off buying a combo kit with the pole included. Otherwise, I am successfully using this bulb changer with this pole:Unger Aluminum Telescopic Pole with Removeable Cone and Universal Thread, 11'https://www.amazon.com/Unger-Aluminum-Telescopic-Removeable-Universal/dp/B000P0KQPO/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1494523450&sr=8-1&keywords=Unger+Aluminum+Telescopic+Pole+with+Removeable+Cone+and+Universal+Thread%2C+11%27 3Works great with the right pole and the right bulbs The recessed light bulb changer worked exceedingly well. I was able to change two BR30 bulbs in about a minute each.Most of the negative reviews seem to be centered on the fact that they didn't realize this changer doesn't fit on all Unger poles, or even with all bulbs. It's a pretty specific use case, I don't imagine this would work with anything much smaller than a BR30. Maybe a BR20?The key line with regards to the pole is this: "Attaches to any Unger telescopic pole with removable cone." I went to Home Depot first to get a pole because Amazon was sold out of the pole I needed and found they were all the locking cones, not the removable so I just had to wait until Amazon was back in stock.The light bulb changers only work removable cone tips. The tapered cone has to be removed first, and then bulb changer can be slid in and locked in place. Part numbers include 960370 (4ft pole, they don't seem to sell it on Amazon), 91012 (11ft pole) & 961880 (6'-16' ft pole).Alternatively, you could make your own pole from this with 1" PVC pipe and a 3/8" drill bit. 5Love these Unger Products-Christmas light taker-downer This thing works. I've mentioned before this Unger system is the best. Poles are nice and long lasting, multiple attachments to put on the end for all types of jobs around the house. Save me significant ladder time.Update 12 Jan 2014. I was taking down Christmas lights and thought of this gadget. I bought new LED lights this year along with the plastic slips that fit under the shingles to hold them in place. I thought of this gadget and sure enough, with the 20 foot Unger pole I have, in conjunction with a ladder, I was able to use this device to take down 99% of my roof line lights. Most was done from the ground. Saved some hazardous duty time on the roof and ladder!!I have to add a second note, I have the Unger CK053 window cleaning kit. The pole that comes with this set has a different end that is the cut end of the aluminum tube with 2 side holes to accept the screw end. There is a quick attach tapered end that fits this, but the 20 ft 3 section pole does not accept the Unger products with the spring loaded side button mounts and the end is not removable. I have not seen the longer poles with the removable end. BUT, if you take out the last section from the pole, slide in the last section from the CK053, then that end takes all the other side button end pieces such as this light bulb changer and the 92131 light bulb changer. 5This product does not fit on Unger pole! I bought this product thinking that it will fit my existing Unger telescopic pole, but it does not. The pole I have is Unger Professional Connect & Clean Telescopic Pole, 20'. You see, the pole has a threaded end. But this bulb changer has "recessed & track" end. I can't even find a long telescopic pole that will accommodate this device.I have searched in many B&M stores and on the Internet, but can't find a proper pole. I cannot find Unger bulb retriever for the threaded pole I have either. Very frustrated. If you know the correct bulb retriever for the threaded pole, please let me know in the comments. 1
