Good idea. I think the identifying info has been removed, but even if I cannot properly ID the fixture a pic should clear the way. I'm surprised more ppl dont require these annoying little bands, but what do I know? Definitely will try the coralline distrib.
mooncon, zip ties are definitely a possibility. In fact, they're the only option I've been able to think of as a possibility. I am a bit concerned about heat still and have held off for that reason (for now). I wish I knew what these bands were made of because they don't burn or melt but when I've tried other rubber and plastic holders it wasn't pretty. The heat of the CFLs dried out or otherwise destroyed my rigged replacements.
I'm surprised no one seems familiar with what I'm talking about. I've seen them on lots of lights (I think all CFLs). Maybe because CFL seems to be moving toward extinction.... I dunno.
As an aside, why is CFL going the way of the dodo?
