    We have 6ft twin T8 tube lights and need to purchase diffuses for them.

    We have tried calling round a few places selling diffuses at the right size and are always told that they will only fit fixtures of the same brand.

    Unfortunately we can see no indication of a brand or maker on our fixtures, would anybody no where on the fixture we might find this?

    Some are held on by clips which go under the screws holding on the lid, that type is reasonably universal, but look a bit ugly.

    Post a photo of your light and someone may be able to identify it for you.

    I found this sticker on the inside of the fitting, the website is defunct but managed to trace the registration number to cooper lighting. No results for the product number unfortunately, guessing its pretty old. I am going to email cooper to see if they can help but I've also attached a (poor sorry) photo of the end of the fitting, if anyone can help with the defuse that will definitely work with this it'd be much appreciated!

    That's a crompton fitting. Crompton are owned by cooper. It's not an old fitting and diffusers are still available for these fittings.

    The description is right but the picture shows the wrong ends so I'd be careful buying the first one.

    The second one is what you're after.
