    We are struggling to find wall lights which we like, which closely match our light fitting bought from JL 9 years ago.

    We have found these

    but we don't like the fancy metal pieces on top. Anyone know how we might go about removing them?

    EDIT: Not sure why the image link isn't working.

    5 sec with an angle grinder or a junior hacksaw to remove that top 'beak'....as its on top, you would hardly see where its been. Any sharp edge can be removed with a file.
    You don't have to use that pull switch if you don't want to.

    Thanks both- I did consider the hacksaw, but knowing my luck, I'd end up with a right mess!

    EightyTwo - saw the endon one previously, but didn't like the petal glass- HOWEVER, it inspired me to look at the Endon webpage and I THINK (subject to Mrs' approval) that I've found "the one" a near perfect match.

    Thanks
