Judging by current reviews a substitute product was being shipped Flashpoint 4 Socket Adapter which is not the same. If the box you receive is not by WESTCOTT and does not have a UPC sticker showing 817967004138 you did not get the adapter advertised here. There are many third party merchants who mislabel products by adding them to listings with good feedback in order to sell junk.
I'm using it with softboxes from photobasics.net which were designed for a single 500w incandescent photoflood. I'm trying to stuff as many watts of cool flourescent into them as possible. I started out with two 85W CFLs. They fit in diagonal opposite sockets with an inch to spare between fixtures. These 85W lights are however long enough that the ends of the bulbs touch the softlight fabric. They are cool enough that I don't think this is a safety issue, but it makes for hotspots on the softbox rather than smooth highlights.
So the next thing I'm going to try is fitting in four 45 Watt flourescents instead. I think this will work because the 85Watt flourescents had bases just barely too wide to fit them in adjacent outlets... I'm assuming the 45W bulbs will have smaller bases so they should fit, and their shorter length should reduce hotspotting.
