I have some hanging lights that are about 12-15 feet high. I'm planning on using some light-changing pole extensions to do the job, such as these: http://www.amazon.com/Bayco-LBC-600C-Deluxe-Light-Changer/dp/B000256QZQ . However, since these lights are hanging by the cord, I also need something to grab the shade while I'm trying to unscrew the light (otherwise the lamp will just spin). However, the only gripper extensions I can find come with their own pole, and none are long enough (for example: http://www.amazon.com/Improving-Lifestyles-Reacher-grabber-Folding/dp/B002AJ6OFO).
I'm wondering if anyone knows of a gripper that will just attach to a pole instead of coming with it's on pole? Or, alternatively, has a better idea for how to change my bulbs? I'm living in the dark these days! ;-)
