From the submitter:

So you have a ceiling fan in a room with a cathedral ceiling that needs a light bulb and no ladder available. Using a broom stick, an empty pill bottle, a hair scrunchy, a large chef's knife, and some duct tape you can build Bulb Changing Tool 5000. Simply cut a series 1-1/2" long slits lengthwise starting at the open end of the pill bottle to make a collapseable bulb holder. Wrap the hair scrunchy around the pill bottle to enable a nice grippy action. Punch a hole in the bottom of the pill bottle.

Chris Burke, of tradesmen recommendation service RatedPeople.com, said: 'Those who assume most men can turn their hand to basic tasks such as drilling a few holes to fit a curtain rail are wrong.
