Safety Notice – Various B & Q Lights

Safety Notice – Various B & Q Lights


Further to a media release issued in February 2017, the Isle of Man Office of Fair Trading is making the public aware of the latest safety notice issued in relation to various B & Q lights, as more models have been found to be affected.  This mostly affects a range of ceiling mounted lights, but also includes certain free-standing and table-top models.


The lights affected were offered for sale between February 2014 and February 2017.  They have a cast metal lamp shade ring (identical to the one shown in the accompanying picture).


The lamp shade ring may fracture in some circumstances and this could lead to the shade falling from the fitting.


The safety notice can be found under ‘Lights by B&Q’ at:


It includes details of the models affected and what to do if you have purchased one of the lights.


If you do not have access to a computer, you can contact the OFT directly on 686500 if you think that you may have purchased one of the lights affected.
