GU10 light bulbs are used in track lighting and some ceiling fans for a bright spotlight effect. GU10 bulbs use a bayonet mounting system, which has two prongs that must be lined up with the holes in the socket and then twisted to secure the bulb in place. Some models may require slight pressure on the bulb to collapse the springs that hold the mounted bulb in place.
