#33221 - 01/14/04 11:36 PM Looking for Round Fluorescents w/pull chains

I am looking for some round fluorescents with covers and pull chain switches. I found 15W fixtures with pull chains from Lithonia but they are not round. They are for large closets with high ceilings in an old Victorian. Anyone seen any?
Thanks, Brian

I had a need for these one time years ago, couldn't find any, so I made my own. Take a round fixture, then drill the appropriate size hole and install the pull-chain switch (available at any hardware store). Fixtures are not required to be UL listed. So, do a good job, and there is no prob.
BTW, many fixtures will already have the KO for the switch installation on the base.

Thanks early, that was a good idea. I bought the stuff today and that's what I'm going to do. The problem is this lady is 91 yrs old and she puts 100 watt bulbs in all her fixtures and I can't tell her different so I don't dare put an incandesent in the closet! So I'll use a nice bright fluorescent.
