Before you jam a potato into that broken bulb, take a look at the Bulb Base-Out tool — you insert it in the broken bulb base, twist the base of the tool, and then twist the bulb out.  I never had any luck with that old potato anyways.

The Bulb Base-Out’s magic is in the fingers at the end — they expand when you twist the base so they can grab the inside of the broken light bulb. Strategic Insight makes the tool from non-conductive plastic so the danger from shock is minimized.

You can get the Bulb Base-Out directly from Strategic Insight for $5 — any tool at this price is worth giving a shot.

    Site has broken links, impossible to order from.

    Step one is turn the power off.
    Step two is determine if the power is really off because it is on a four-way switch and you never got around to labeling the breakers.
