Lights Repairable

I have two of these in my pole building, none work. Another thread, which I can't find, says you can convert to LED bulbs.

Not sure how I could get these down being way up by the ceiling without breaking a leg or two but if they can be fixed I'll give it a shot.

Someone in that thread showed these that I put on my Amazon list, not sure they will work here?

Thanks very much.

Those lamps will work. Note that they are 100w equivalent. The halogen version you have could be 100w, 250w, or 500w. There will be a big difference if they are currently 500w and you're 'downgrading' to 100w. So just be aware of what wattage is currently in there.

There are also 2 or 3 sizes of that type of halogen lamp. It looks like you have the correct size (they are about 4.5" long). But some smaller worklights have the smaller version which are about 2.5" long.
