Changing Light Bulb Above Stairway

Hello folks,

Well the bulb finally blew above our stairs and now we have to change it. Problem is the light is about 15 feet above the stairs. How would be the easiest way of getting to this light and taking off the covering and replacing the bulb w/out breaking my neck falling?

Hard telling.

At our old house I had to use an extension ladder to reach it.

The safest way will be to use (buy,rent) a stairway ladder. They have legs that can be adjusted to different lengths so they are stable on stairs.

If you do that, be sure to put in some sort of long-life lamp (130 volt or perhaps a compact fluorescent) so you don't have to do it very often.
