Good

…I used lamp cord and tied it in a knot before tightening down the screw terminals.…

Great value — least expensive, solid quality

…I used these to rewire and restore some old antique / vintage lamps and light fixtures, to repair them to safe working order.

Can these be used with 18/2 lamp cord?

I don't know if 18/2 lamp cord would fit. The opening at the bottom of the socket is designed to fit the standard (threaded 1/8-IP) lamp pipe. The opening of the threaded lamp pipe is 1/4 inch. I have tried many different electrical cords and have found that the standard (SPT-1 wire with polarized plug) is the best choice. GE and Westinghouse both makes this in an 8 Ft. package. Amazon sells the Westinghouse one, no. 70101. I hope that this helps,

Metal or plastic

HARD PLASTIC...like if y0u boughtr small insert sockets with leads.....the price makes them unbeatable. I make steampunk lamps...have used about2 dozen of the babies....so far so good!

Five Stars

This was a great addition to our lamp in the living room.

Great for single bulb swag lamp

This splitter allowed me to get nice, distributed light from a cheap single bulb swag kit. Perfect!

You Won't Regret This Purchase.

…Right now I am using it with a 300 watt clamp-on brooder lamp so I'm not worried about overheating. Exceptional product and it looks lovely in any lamp.…

I have lots of plants that I will very soon be bringing indoors for the winter. Would I be able to use these for indoor grow lamps?

Not a pro but I think grow lamps take a lot of juice. These handle a max load of 180 watts across all three ports. If your lamps pull more than that, then no.

will this work in a dimmable socket? and still be able to dim?

Yes. It works in my dimmable floor lamp.

Works great to boost the brightness w/o having to buy a 2nd lamp!

Works great to boost the brightness w/o having to buy a 2nd lamp (and tie up the use of another outlet, too).…

it is great!! my dinning area is getting much more ...

I bought this socket for my ceiling lamp to increase the light output, I put three 60 W light bulbs, it is great!!…

Brightened up area

Just what I need to add extra light for study area, without buying another lamp.

Can I hang this from a socket on the ceiling?

If the socket is firmly mounted to the electrical box it will work well. I simply screwed them into an existing white porcelain single socket, added tree LED lamps and have three times the light for a fraction of the wattage used.

This lamp cord socket is great! I needed a lamp cord for my new bedroom because there is no light there and I hate dark!…

Simple. clean.

…I’m using it with a smart bulb and a puzzle lamp shade and it looks amazing.

Quality is much better than I expected, and I can swag a simple lamp with the extra length.

Great for ceiling hangings, lamps and colorful bulbs!

Great for a multi colored bulb we purchased for my Teen's room. Hangs and works great with the remote control led light bulb, perfect length for ceiling hangings.

Worked perfect for DIY project!

Worked great on my DIY lamp project!

Good Lamp cord cable with a switch

I was looking for an option to hang a Christmas Star in frot my front door on the porch. I did some research and found this option, I am glad I could find it. Please see the pictured I have posted. It is long enough to hang the star and also it has a switch so that I can turn it OFF and ON as when I needed.

Perfect solution

Great for changing from low wattage incandescent to higher wattage LED in pendant lamps.

Great Product!

Great extensions, I have the HUE light and I wanted them in my night table lamp and I figured out that hue lights are not Candelabra screw, so I bought those extension and now I can play with my light thanks to those extensions.

... my table lamps with GE Bluetooth bulbs they worked great no complaints

I received these adapter and used them in my table lamps with GE Bluetooth bulbs they worked great no complaints.…

Fits great, works perfectly. Great for Ikea lamps.

…Works great in my many Ikea lamps.…

Work very well. Save me money

These are great in this age when it is hard to find dimmable small LED lamps.…

Don't need special candelabra bulbs anymore

…I have an outdoor lamp that uses candelabra bulbs, I could never find high wattage bulbs for it.…

Good product.

I used these with an automatic dawn-to-dusk LED light in the lamp post in our front yard.…

Perfect for ceiling fan lamps that are not bright enough

…The lamp is limited to 60 Watt bulbs - but that is an incandescent rating for heat purposes.…

Excellent adapter

Exactly what I needed to use a standard bulb in my lamp.

Just what I needed

Great adapter for my ceiling fan lamp.

Fit properly

It worked very well and fit nicely to my ceiling fan lamp.

What kind of bulb do I use for these lamps?

A regular bulb. These are for adapters for my ceiling fans that only use really small bulbs that are hard to find. So with these connected you can use the most common size bulb in stores

Anyone know if these could work with the Phillips hue lights?

Yes. I bought them to adapt some Hue color bulbs to work in an IKEA lamp. Works awesome!

Great for putting my philips hue bulbs into my ikea style lamps.

Q.
shocking

I was apprehensive about sing these since i thought it would lead to shorts or surges or whatever in this antique lamp. so far there has been no issues at all even when the lamp stays on for hours. Wouldn't buy again just because one pack comes with so many, I've actually given some away to friends with lamps that take the small bulbs. happy with the purchase, price and performance.

Simple and Simple

…Works well and fits haha in the lamp...

Are these made in the usa? if not, where.

I looked and couldn't tell. So far, they are working fine in my Lamps outside

Is compatible with a LED bulb?

These are ideal for use with LED bulbs. However the end result won't have that dainty look of a thin candelabra bulb so these work best when used with any type of lamp shade or within a diffuser. I used these on some wall sconces that had shades but not on my big chandelier. Good luck.

High quality~!

Excellent quality, my son was building me a lamp and was very impressed with the quality.

Do these contain stress relief pieces? Which one is it?

Yes it has a very good stress relief component. I used these for hanging lamps. Would recommend for anyone wanting the antique look.

Very cool looking

Very well built and look absolutely amazing on my lamp.…

Great product

I really like the look and feel of these lamp sockets.…

It helps to have some prior knowledge of how a lamp and socket is generally wired.

Great product. Very sturdy and well made. Quality products are hard to find at this price point. I use them on all my projects

Quality.

This is about the best naked lamp socket I have seen in a long time.…

Sturdy construction

…They were easy to install in my lamps and look good.

As the description says, really high quality!

We got this for the one of our living room lamps, the drift wood base was so beautiful that we did not want to distract the setting with a lamp shade, so we changed the lamp socket to this one and a great Edison lamp.…
