Does the job, but feels a little fragile
on 23 July 2012
I go into the loft maybe 10 times a year ( mainly to retrieve large items in storage such as suitcases ). As such I didn't want to spend a fortune on something that only gets infrequent use. I have an electric socket already in the loft so a plug in Mains inspection lamp seemed the ideal solution rather than a torch.
So that's the background as to why I purchased this product.
My initial thoughts on this product are that it feels a little fragile and that the plastic casing could easily break. Given I expect it to hang in my loft and not be moved about this doesn't bother me as the risk of damage is low.
The bulb is easily inserted as the front metal guard unclips.( remember it's a screw in ; all my other bulbs in the house are bayonet so ordered bulb at same time ).
The lead is also of a good length.
I would recommend this product if you need a cheap lamp that you do not expect to suffer any wear and tear in usage. It is very good value compared to other products on the market. If you want something that feels more robust then you will have to spend a bit more money I think.
