Screw-shell lampholders in closets

At least the pull appears non-conductive.

however the biggest issue is heat and breakage.

Carson Dunlop Home Reference Book seems to prefer they be above the door,which does not seem applicable here.

Personally I would take out the bulb and check polarity for safety.Then recommend a more flush out of the way style fixture.LEDs produce no heat whatsoever and have come down to a reasonable price.Dam! I"M STARTING TO GET LONG WINDED AS YOU GUYS.I probably look like my dog to.

Going to bed Chris however I seem to recall they have traces of mercury plus they break easy.So energy efficient or not Paul's idea may be the best choice.[:-bigmouth let that be my yawn.My chapter president recommend Home gauge and I have playing with it all evening.I like way it lets you customize photo downloads.

I agree with Paul. Recommend they swap it out for a fluorescent fixture. A compact fluorescent lamp is only safe till it burns out; then someone might forget why it's there and stick a 100w light bulb back in.

Realtors love to tell people that they just need to screw in a CFL. That's reason enough to avoid the practice.

That's a very good point. Time to change my ways.
