    hello i want to remove some down lights from a room

    before i remove the fittings and reskim ceiling etc

    i was hoping to take out the bulbs and find some blanking plates to fill the holes

    i suppose the market for this product is pretty small !

    cheers

    get some scrap plasterboard. cut discs out same size as the holes, fit a bit of lath above the hole, screwed up through the board either side of the hole, then screw your discs to the lath.

    Are you planning to leave all the down light cables in the ceiling and live?

    hope not. probably OP is going to divert the feed to whatever new light he's fitting.
