When I ordered this lampholder, my concern was with its sturdiness, because some reviewers mentioned it was both cheap in price and quality.

My concerns turned out to be unfounded when I received it. The plastic was hard and sturdy, and this seem to be a simple well made product. I added a number more into my cart.

I just used the lampholder to test a new LED bulb I bought. Screwed in the bulb, and plugged the lampholder into a Coleman 3 socket strip. When I was going to pull out the lampholder, I received an electric shock. In fact my hand is still tingling from pain as I am typing this.

There is a potentially LETHAL flaw in the design of the lampholder. The depth of the shell is about 1/8" shallower than the length of a medium base connector, leaving the live connector exposed even when it is fully screwed into the lampholder.

See the photo I have uploaded.

This flaw is not present, for instance, in the Light Bulb Socket with Switch & Umbrella Mount for CFL photography and video - mounts to a light stand

Added 2014-12

One fix if you have already bought it will be to cover the exposed surface of the bulb base with electrical tape, if you are so inclined to. Same idea as how UK BS 1363 electrical plugs are specified to have about half of the length of the live and neutral prongs insulated to be finger safe. Still, there is some risk if changing to another bulb and you forget to be careful.

This product just gets the job done! We have an outlet high on our wall, and plugging a light in is a pain with the cord dangling from the roof. So I bought this and it works great! Solid, secure, and minimalist. Highly recommended!

This product seems rather cheaply put together, but so far it seems to do the job. I would have given it 3 stars, but bumped up to four because of the reasonable price. I'm not unhappy with the purchase, but would like to find something of better quality which I would happily pay more for.

Does exactly what it is supposed to do. I was really glad to find this for my purpose of adding a remote controlled light in the garage. The garage has a fluorescent light fixture with a manual switch but that switch is in the garage. For various reasons I wanted to control a garage light from inside the house. So, I placed a light bulb in this adapter and plugged it into a remote adapter that plugged into the open outlet right next to the garage door plug. I can turn the light on with the remote from the other side of the garage door to the house and with the peephole can make sure the garage door is closed and secure. I also use another one when repainting baseboards, just plug it in the nearest outlet to have better lighting.

I haven't tested it to the limits but it has worked great for my 60W bulb with no issues at all. Feels well built, and was a great price. Would recommend to a friend.

Cracked in half after about 48 hours of use. The base gets extremely hot and this is obviously why it cracked in half. Still functions after cracking but is probably a hazard at this point.

This a good old-school Leviton product. It works as always. I needed this to run a lamp located where no fixture was located and the outlet was near the ceiling. Using a Cree LED bulb and it works.

Product is as advertised. Inexpensive and easy to use. Needed it for my outside security system. Expect many years of use.

I love this. It allows me to place a light anywhere I need it as long as an outlet is available. They're great.
