upward facing bulbs on a high chandelier

Is there an attachment for upward facing bulbs on a high chandelier? Cannot reach by ladder as 16 feet up. All 4 r burnt out now :(

SW corner of the cou…
Scaffold? Orchard ladder?

These tall hallways have their disadvantages to say the least.

Two adults to hold vertical straight ladder. One light kid age 12-14 to scramble up like a monkey and change the bulbs. Done it many times

I would rent/buy a long extension ladder and put it against one of the walls and climb up on it. Then the person at the top of the extension ladder hooks the lamp (extendible pole with something fashioned into a hook) and pulls the light fixture towards the wall and attaches it to the ladder with bungie cords, etc. and then can change the bulbs fairly easily. At least it's safer than having some people hold the ladder vertical.

lol - so you send the red-headed step-child up or one of your own that you actually love? Bicycle or hockey helmet for an added measure of safety? Is you spouse aware of your approach or is your spouse out of the house while the operation is carried out covertly?

Love your plan but have so many questions!

Whatever the solution might want to repaint as well seeing that is even a more difficult situation.

Like the entryway, hate the maintenance of it all.

Don't see renting a 16 foot step ladder as you won't get that beast in your car or wrapped to the roof racks. So unless you have a neighbor with one or who owns scafoldind lying around this might call for paying someone else to step in.

I had the same problem. Mine is really high also and there is no way I could get to it to change the bulbs. My brother actually had an articulated ladder that he bought from Costco that worked like a charm. It made changing the bulbs easy.
