Today I'm retro-fitting 21 x Knightsbridge mains GU10 VFRDGIC fittings.
They have what looked like time-saving push connectors, similar to Wagos.
But the xxxxxxx things don't work! They have two-gang connectors (2xE 2xL 2xN) but when I insert two 1.0 T&E legs into each they don't grip well...
Hello, I am converting my ceiling downlighters to LED. The old MR16 50W halogen bulbs come with a 12v transformer. I plan to cut the LV cable just before the transformer, then strip it and wire it into the new GU10 LED lamp holder. This means the new GU10 lamp holder will not be earthed. Looking...
I'd really appreciate some advice. I have a little cafe which was all wired up by someone qualified. The issue is that someone put in a few 50w halogen bulbs and they didn't check the positioning of the wires after a ceiling skim. There had been no issues for over 4 years whilst...
Fairly simple question about peoples preferences
Personally I'm thinking that sealed units are now not really an option as there is too much waste when they go wrong and often it means time I'm not paid for
Whereas customers can change GU10's themselves .......
We need to convert our GU10 spotlights into pendants but was hoping to do this without having to rewire the system. I know the US has a convert plug for this but nothing in the UK.
Been in a busy restaurant we don’t have much time to do this as currently we are going through changes that means...
Bro has 4 halogen MR16 ceiling lights which we are going to replace with mains GU10 LED types.
He hates the look of the sparkly reflectors, so I've been looking at alternatives styles including IP rated fittings which will disguise this behind frosted glass.
My question is, how...
I have a failed transformer in a bedroom and want to convert all the bulbs in this bedroom to GU10 (4 bulbs) This is so I can use LED bulbs without hassle.
Is there any type of notification needed for this type of work? Can I just get on with it?
I'd be grateful for some advice on how to wire in some new GU10 fittings. I bought these fire rated Minisun ones: https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00GSPFK2O/ref=pe_3187911_185740111_TE_item
I will be removing the existing GU5.3 (MR16) fittings before starting. These fittings have a...
I have three rooms. Two rooms have two lighting points, each with 3 GU10's coming out and 1 room and one point with 3 GU10's.
So I have 5 of these:

I'm looking at upgrading my Halogen MR16 to LED.
Purely from a hassle factor I'm thinking to convert to GU10 LED as insulation test are so much easier.
Any reason why you might choose MR16 LED over GU10 LED?
Hi there folks, I am interested to hear your views on what you've found to be the most reliable brand of Led Flood light and also GU10 lamp.
Also any brands to avoid? I've had a load of V-Tac GU10 go faulty, so stopped using them, Source GU10 are another, in my own kitchen, 2 went within a...
Hi all, I was wondering if anyone could shed any light onto this problem. Whilst doing subby work on a bathroom install, the owner of the house asked me to have a quick look at her kitchen lights. There was a 4 lamp spotlight bar type fittings. Apparently shes changed the LED GU10's about 3...
Apologies if this isn't the correct place to ask this. I had some builders in who I asked to change my old 12v MR16 with transformers to 240v GU10 LED lamps which no longer needed the transformer.
I didn't think anything was wrong until I had an electrician come and take a look at a...
