SHOULD these fit any 48" fixture?
about 4 ft. T12 60-Watt Cool White (4100K) High Output Linear Fluorescent Light Bulb (15-Pack) on
January 10, 2014
The product specifications state:
Approximate Lightbulb Length 48
Assembled Depth (in.) 46.81 in
I had to return a box of these bulbs because they were only 45" long -- about 45 1/2" including the pins. They were well short of making contact at the ends of my 48" fixtures.
The case I received had obviously been returned by someone else; the ends of the box were sloppily taped closed and one of the bulbs was missing its pin protectors. It was not apparent how to make these 45" bulbs fit a 48" fixture, there were no instructions in the box to explain it, and no one at the Customer Service desk could explain it, either. Unfortunately, I had to ask for a refund.
If you can explain how to make these bulbs work in a 48" fixture -- or let me know what fixture I need to get, I'm still interested in getting them. I'd really like these bulbs for their high light output.
