Abstract

A system is disclosed for attaching a shade to a recessed spotlight or downlight. The system uses a wire frame comprising spring loaded clips that are slid between a ceiling and the overlapping lip of the recessed light housing. Suitable for attaching over the flange of existing recessed downlighters where fittings for attaching a shade do not already exist.

Description

Description of product,

The spot on lighting system is a way that anyone can transform their existing conventional recessed spot light fitting in the home or at work, The design of the spot on lighting system means that no special skills are needed and anyone can carry out the fitting of the spot on shade, there is no need to turn off the mains power supply, Fitting is a simple case of sliding the securing wires under the overlapping lip of the existing spot light housing.

The spring loaded clips that hold the original spot light in position effectively hold the spot on lighting system securely in place.

The exact positions of the top wire system is the key to this being incredibly easy to install.

From that main structure many different designs of shade can be attached.
