    Other sources may have LED versions. A few years ago the LED versions were too dim for me. I adapted square LED panels.

    Those bulbs are generally called "loop festoon" style bulbs. The two clips that hold them in place are spring loaded outward to hold the bulb in place. Led versions in different Kelvin colors are available from many sources. Measure the distance between the end loops to determine the correct size.

    Do an exploritory if u r replacing the entire fixture remove 1 from the bus first to see what u r looking at. Sometimes the nuts that r crimped into the stainless that they r fastened with loose their crimp and spin. Sometimes the wire tail is not long enough at all.

    Great upgrade, and, don't throw away the old ones.

    I have the LED replacement for your bulb. Festoon bulbs are offered in different lengths and there lies the problem. I think the bulb stuff is on my bus, like the part number from the vender.

    Purchased 23 of number ...6451 in "cool white". You might try customer help all depends on who you get or order one or two bulbs for a test in your housing.

    I had the cool white ones and did not like them. I replaced them with warm white and like them much better now.

    If you want to replace the entire fixture, there are a few options, none of which use the same mounting holes.

    I like the Maxxima MWL-33. It's a flat mounted light with downward directed LEDs and cost about $35.

    Here's the light output comparison. Yes, the one MWL-33 shown does throw more light straight out even though most light is directed downward.

    Here's a great choice for your entry light next to the door. I think it's a bit pricey, but it's a Whelen product. They are all pricey. I installed one of these at my door.
