The light socket did not hold the bulb properly so the light would go on and off.

NEVER buying cowboystudio ever again, they don't stand behind their products and they're not even compatible with each other.

This attaches to the threads of the light bulb and is forced down when screwing in the bulb.

These light stand mounts are great - inexpensive, mount to standard light stands, have an umbrella holder. With a good reflective umbrella and a compact fluorescent bulb you get a really good soft light setup for the low budget filmmaker. I already had two of these and love them, got two more for backup. I would recommend NOT using incandescent bulbs - these things are plastic and the heat from the bulb might damage them. But the big CFLs work great for me. Look for the new style large CFLs that provide equivalent of 150 to 300 watt incandescent.

This works well when paired with a PBL FLUORESCENT 85 WATT 5100K DAYLIGHT BULB by PBL for providing a nice source for constant light. This can be preferred to using a flash, for example, when photographing children or some pets. It also provides much better results than a flash when shooting video :*) .

It's very reasonably priced, sits nicely on your light stand, holds an umbrella securely, and comes with a nice long cord and convenient switch.

For the price, it's worth having one on hand for when you need light and your flash decides to stop working. Or, like I suggested above, as a low cost way for converting your portrait setup to something which allows you to light a video.

I've experience two serious failures with this product. The set screw at the lower interface uses a recessed hex nut to secure itself to the product. This has popped loose. This is a nuisance fault but does make it difficult to secure the product to a light stand.

Additionally the metal threaded insert in the light socket has come loose. This part provides both the electrical and structural interfaces between the unit and the light. This failure has rendered the device inoperable.

It's clear to me (an engineer) that the design & manufacture of this item indicates poor understanding of metal-plastic bonding techniques.

Save your money.

Not often do I look at a light socket and say, Nice design. But, this is a really nice piece of equipment. Sturdy construction, nice on/off switch, very accommodating umbrella holder, well thought-out lightstand coupling. The killer was a very long cord. For the first time I've got a socket which doesn't require an extension cord. I'm using this with CFL bulbs for constant light which easily allows bounce or shoot-thru with an umbrella.

The old saying is true. You get what you pay for. This thing worked for a couple of uses and then fell apart. It never really worked great either. The light socket did not hold the bulb properly so the light would go on and off.

For a simple, quick lighting solution these things are great. After reading other's comments I was concerned about the insides rotating out when you try to unscrew a bulb but I have has no trouble like that at all. In fact, looking at the design I can't even see how that would happen. I suppose if you turn the bulb down so tight that you break the inside loose while tightening you could do this and then when you back it out it would no longer be fixed in place. But that's about the only way I can see someone doing this. It's obvious that they aren't designed for daily use in a working studio. They are for occasional use and for the money I think you can't go wrong.

I have purchased 5 with this item, all 5 have broken down the minute you tighten the bulb in its' light bulb screw. The metal part inside the enclosure comes loose & there is no way to replace it. I am putting all 5 of these & hop0efully they will take them back
