I have a light fixture in an entryway that is about 17 feet high and several of the bulbs in the fixture are burned out. It is a candelabra type fixture with a glass enclosure, so a person has to be able to manipulate the fixture.
The only way I can see to do it is to get a very high step ladder, but the only one I could find that high cost $1000 and has a very wide base that it might be tricky to fit in the foyer. I saw one guy do it with a jack knife ladder and a crossboard, but it seemed incredibly dangerous to me. This is his set up:
What are my options to do this safely without spending $1000?
