Light Bulb Changing Tools

High-Access Bulb Changing Made Safer and Easier

To easily change hard to reach light bulbs, use an Unger Professional™ light bulb changer and telescopic pole to eliminate the need for a dangerous ladder. You can stand safely on the ground while changing most types of bulbs, including track lighting, compact fluorescent lamps (CFL), and flood lights. Our telescopic poles range from 4ft to 20ft to reach the highest bulbs both inside and outside.

The Right Tool for the Job

The new Unger Professional Universal Bulb Changing Kit allows you to change almost any bulb in your house without the need for a chair, stool, or ladder.  Just select the attachment that best fits your bulb – the easy-to-change parts snap securely to the handle.  This versatile kit works with all standard 1 in. threaded bulbs. All parts are designed to click together so that you can store the Universal Bulb Changer as a single unit.

This kit also has a broken bulb changer to remove broken bulbs safely and easily from the ground. It’s fully insulated to protect against electrical shock.

Take Proper Safety Precautions

When changing a light bulb, it is recommended to wear gloves and eye protection as a precaution. This will prevent injury if the bulb accidentally breaks in the process of changing it. Always turn off the electrical breaker and allow lamps to cool before attempting to change a bulb. Before using a light bulb changing device, use a dry cloth to remove dust from the bulb and your device. Then, follow the instructions of your device to correctly remove and replace the bulb. Before taking off gloves and safety glasses, check that the bulb turns on when power is restored.
