    Boob lights and globes were really standard by the 90s and were good through the 2010s. Led lights have started a whole bunch of garbage designs since then and now it's all shit again

      this shit?
      Why can't I just plug it, twist, and snap it securely in place? I just replaced a chandelier, and the majority of the work was getting it out of the box.

        You can get a bunch of different globes for them though, and the threaded part it screws onto is replaceable, the bulb holders replaceable, everything was.

          That's useless though. I can change from a boob lamp, to a hanging light, to whatever. You can even snap an adapter onto it and it becomes a standard 100V plug. I'm extremely disappointed in US electrics now that I've witnessed this. We're being screwed guys.

            Then go back to nipland and enjoy the superior electrics.

        Bro, twisting wires and tightening screws while juggling a heavy object above your head is NOT fun.

          Ive never had a problem with it. if youre having problems then prepare better, like balancing it at the top of a step ladder. I can use 1 hand to twist and 1 hand to hold.

          2. USA manufactures nothing and were half way around the world to a country that does. That means niche components have to travel at least 2 weeks before you can do anything. I'd rather not depend on that system for niche incompatible proprietary component vapor ware that becomes unobtainable because you cant be bothered to lift a 15 lb weight in your off time to be able to tackle a simple project..

          first you zip tie the lamp to the ceiling, then you wire it up, then you cut the zip tie and mount the lamp.

      Yes, like you see GU-10 sockets sometimes.
      I think some tree-hugger chick proposed it to the dems 2 decades ago and they lapped it up, but it’s pretty much dead now.

      Ok so when you are a Nippon rentoid, the apartments don't come with lamps in them. You get these sockets on ceilings where you screw in an entire light fixture.
      >electricians have been gatekeeping for job security.
      American fixtures are held by 2 screws, and 2 or 3 wire nuts. If you get filtered by this task, I hope the electrician charges you 10x the normal rate as he is obviously a better person than you are and will be better of using that money than you will ever be.

      see how the little twisty 69 bit is the exact same spacing tho? You can snap the same lamp into any one of those.

    50 years ago I would have said it's good, but today with so much chinkshit I'd be afraid people would add all sorts of high-power loads and overload crummy and aged panels. I could imagine a space heater with this fitting, free shipping from aliexpress.

      >high-power loads and overload crummy and aged panels
      OP here, kiss my ass. My panel is 30 amps. My ventless washer/dryer has a 100V plug. You guys NEED your 200A panel because all your crap is energy wasting garbage. You could be mining bitcoin with the amount of electricity you waste on your light bulbs.

        That's not the point. The lighting circuit could be a 15A wire on a 20A bussman fuse and never been overloaded before just cause the previous tenant was using a plain light fixture. The next tenant pulls up with some weird ass chinkshit adapter and plugs his Bitcoin op into it. Next thing you know the whole fire squad has been dispatched there.

        I'm viewing it from the perspective of the owner, not the tenant. Tenants will do the stupidest things. As for a regular property, I don't see the advantage when you keep the same fixture for more than 10 years.

    I'm trying to remember a single time in the last 40 years that I needed to change a lamp fixture when I wasn't gutting the whole room anyways... And I can't.

      the reason you're always gutting rooms is because American build quality is trash tho

    They technically do. The national electric code even mentions them specifically in several articles regarding receptacles and luminaires. They never caught on because the company that holds the patent and lobbied the NEC went bankrupt or something iirc, and no one else can make them due to patent issues.
