screw type bulbs.
 
there are two types of bulb holders.. pin type (benet) or screw type.
my question is, it is hard to screw or unscrew bulbs ( specialy recessed downlights). Specially if I want to replace bulbs. Is there any thing like oil or powder to reduce the friction of the screw type holders.


much appreciated your comments.

You could try some Dielectric grease to the bulb. which could be bought at any auto parts store. I would put just a small film over the mogul base of the bulb. BOB

Not unless you are standing on top of a 16' stap ladder leaning out over some furniture.

Thank you "Buletbob" & "Bondo".
I used thin film of silicon greese and used rubber glove to handle the bulbs. It seems to be working work.
But I do not know is there any affect to the contacts in the long run when I apply silicon greese .
