DIY. Changing a Light Bulb the Hard Way
This is what I found when I took off the globe. It had popped right out of the metal leaving it hanging from the socket. Nice.
After making sure the switch was OFF, I pulled off the glass that was hanging by a thread, got some PPC Wooden Tongs (no longer available in the style I have sorry no pic) and put on some gloves. I know there are other ways to get the metal out of the socket but it was 11PM and this was my method of choice. I simply used the tongs spread apart to hold onto the metal and turn it out of the socket. It worked quite well. Done.
