    Step 1

    1. Please use some cloth around the bulb for safety.

    I used a old sock.

  • Step 2

    2. Go with the Knife under the contact from the Bulb and take it off

  • Step 3

    3. Then destroy carefully the black glass from the Lightbulb with a small hammer.

    If this doesn't work use a Needle Nose Plier and crush the black glass.

i've found if you dont have a clear light bulb u can take an opaque one u can put salt in it and swish it around and it makes it clear!
