LAP Fixed Round Low Voltage Fire Rated Downlight IP44 Gloss White 12V
Hope not too many bulb changes
Six of these lamps were fitted by my electrician this morning but when we then decided to change the bulbs to a higher wattage we found that as you try to undo the bezel the whole lamp turns on its base coupled with the fact that its difficult to grip the bezel because it is not very thick. We then removed one fitting entirely and close examination of the way in which this bezel cover fits into the lamp base shows how difficult and how tight it is even with your feet on the ground and with two hands! The retaining springs are very strong and these are well under tension with some 20mm of skim and plasterboard so that is not the problem. I must reluctantly conclude that the design is poor and this is the feature which in my view reduces the rating to poor. I am not proposing to change these now since it has already cost three hours labour and the also the time spent doing this review in the absence some other parties' quality control. Very disappointed.

Not what I asked for
I ordered a 240v light from catalogue but was supplied at shop witha 12v that I had to adapt by adding a transformer, slowed the job by having to get more parts. Not helpful. And the bulb supplied by shop was the wrong fitting! So I had to get a new bulb too!

I used these lights to replace others which had been installed in my kitchen. The new lights are much more robust than the ones I had to remove and have given good light and no problems since installation.

Just the Job
I purchased these as replacements for my bathroom's, it was actually quite difficult finding replacements localy and after giving a national supplier 4 days and several opportunities, Screwfix came to my aid. Simple to fix with clear downloadable instructions and all the measurments prior to ordering. This made the job so much easier, couldn't ask for more!
