Answer: 
In most cases, the wires can easily be released from the friction blade connection in the socket by inserting a straightened paper clip in the hole, next to the wire. Make sure the power is off!

There are two types of fixture hookups that are dominant, the old style where the socket had two short (a few inches length) pigtail wires and was connected to the rest of the fixture with wire nuts, AND the newer style where the socket has little holes that have friction grip blades in them to grip very thin solid core wire.

There are two types of fixture hookups that are dominant, the old style where the socket had two short (a few inches length) pigtail wires and was connected to the rest of the fixture with wire nuts, AND the newer style where the socket has little holes that have friction grip blades in them to grip very thin solid core wire.
You need to determine which type of sockets your old fixture has. This will work with the newer type with friction grip blades but not with the older type that had the wires built into the socket permanently.
If in doubt, tear the back panel off the old socket (clipped or pressed on, you may forcefully break it all in pieces if you have to in order to see inside since it is broken anyway) and inside the old socket if it is the friction fit blade type you will see two small brass blades gripping the wires and can release the wires by bending the opposing side of those brass blades.

Answer: 
Hi there and thank you for your question.
Yes, you should be able, with no problems, to replace the old bi-pin 80628 with above pictured product.
Just keep in mind that new connections need to be firmly secured and that power to the fixture needs to be turned off prior to servicing.
Hope this helps.

Answer: 
Should work for both. If you have a fixture that has a shield or is thicker you might want the regular height ones not the low profile ones. I don't know if Home Depot has them or not.

Answer: 
They will work for both T8 and T12 bulbs, since the pin spacing is the same.

Answer: 
Yes but you need to remove the Ballast and direct wire 110V to the socket holders.
Hot to one end and common to one end. So 2 pins on one end are common and 2 pins on other end are 110V hot
