A glass globe is the glass cover, or globe, that goes over the bulbs in your light kit. Often times, what can happen is the glass globe can shatter. How does this happen, you may ask? Well, you could be changing the bulb, and the globe falls and smashes. Most of the time, removing a glass globe should be easy. Newer fans tend to have more universal type mounts that hold the globe in place.
Older fans, and rarer fans can have different globe mounting styles that can be difficult to remove. It can’t hurt to ask the wife, husband, or one of the kids to hold onto the globe while you unscrew it. This way, you can ensure the globe does not fall and smash on the ground.
