Aren't bayonet fixings being slowly phased out?

Your probably right there Root. I just can't understand the point of the above. I have GU10s in my kitchen and the rest of the house is bayonet. I have just bought 10 GU10s off ebay for the kitchen but it wouldnt even cross my mind to buy an adaptor to put GU10s in a bayonet fitting. If the lamps go in the rest of the house I just buy another 50p bayonet lamp to replace it rather than forking out a lot more for an adaptor to fit another lamp that would cost the same

I don't get it.....GU10 LED always seem to be very directional lights. Bayonet are typically in light shades or such like.

If you put a LED GU10 in, the light would either hang out the bottom, not fit or give rubbish light output???

Perhaps I'm missing the point.

I think the idea is that instead of having to replace a bayonet lamp holder to accommodate a new lamp you buy the adapter instead What lamp you put in the adapter is your choice.

Either that or crissyb has an "interest" in TCD who supply them.

Yeah i work their ?
i am not advertising the fact, we have had inquiry’s about gu10's and i was wondering if anyone has used them before and any one has actually fitted these before ?
it was a subject to see if anyone would or have used them
it would save 50watt to 5watt that’s why i posted in this section

sorry if i cause a pointless post ?
