Tool I made to remove a stuck light bulb from a recessed ceiling fitting.

No need to break light bulb and use pliers to remove bulb base.

Cut end of bottle, put  silicone on the circumference.

Silicone I used was Sikaflex AT-Facade (NZ). Use any that has  similar properties. This grips the bulb and you can apply a lot more force to turn the bulb( upwards force and rotational to free the bulb from the housing)

No Need to break the light bulb.

You still need to use commonsense.
this is an awesome trick! thanks for sharing!
