Just so you knowWhen you turn off a light switch. You do not shut off the power to the light. You break the circuit between power and ground (actually neutral but let's keep things simple). The danger is, even if you shut off the light switch, while you are playing with the broken light bulb you might become the ground for the circuit. The power is still going to the light but the circuit is not complete until either the switch is moved or you and your potato become a ground and both get cooked.Play safe, turn off the breaker at the panel.
Ok before I read this, I got the broken bulb out but couldnt turn the base thread to b get socket out. Used pliers and now base is mangled and broken. How do I now get it out? Im stuck because it wont move and its all chewed up. Help!! Help!!

Brilliant! How about putting the un-modified bowl on something tall so the fat cat can't get to it and has motivation to keep exercising? HAHA
I've always just turned off the main power at my circuit breaker box and then used needle nose pliers to loosen and remove the bulb base although I would assume just turning off the switch would suffice. Isn't that what a light wall switch does? Turns power to the socket on and off?

This worked like a charm. I turned off the power in that room via the circuit breakers first just to be safe. The bottle opening was a tad bit too big but I was able to angle it and unscrew it with no problem. Thank you! You probably saved me about $200 in electrician fees!

Very smart and cool. I started building an RC boat last week using PVC pipes and stumbled upon this tonight... I was thinking of putting a solar panel on mine too to charge the batteries while the motors weren't being used... did you use any sort of isolation device between the charger and batteries on your battery version?
what type of battery do you yous.
