You're reviewing Halo 4 Light DIY Spotlight in Brushed Chrome/Chrome
- Looks great when installed, instructions could be better, use some blue tack
What you need to do is to insert the Gu10 light into the light holder. The instructions tell you to use the suction cup provided to hold onto the GU10 surface and slot it into the light holder and twist to lock. What it doesn't tell you is that the suction holder doesn't suck so the Gu10 becomes really difficult to put in alignment with the light holder even with trial and error.
An easier way to go about this, is not to unscrew the lamp shade thinking you can just put in the Gu10 with your hand and screw the shade back on at the same time because once you do this, it will take a long time before you can put it back together due to the screw mechanism not being separate to the lamp shade... the lamp shade and the screw mechanism is separate so when you try to screw it back holding the shade, nothing happens. The screw part is a hollow plastic ring with screw indents on the outside of the ring similar to a mount franklin water bottle lip.
The simple fix to these problems is a lump of blue tack.
1) Blue tack to hold the screw part and the lamp shade together, creating enough friction to put back together onto the light holder.
2) Use blue tack the size of a thumb to stick onto Gu10 head, slot it into the light holder, remove blue tack cleanly, use the suction cup to twist and lock, bam and done. 5 minute job rather than an hour job using only what they provide in the instructions.
