Customer Reviews

Rated 2.3 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice item a simple item that I needed to extend the socket in a lamp this worked well June 9, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Doesn't work well. I bought this to use with a "flicker" bulb to simulate a gas lamp on my porch. Apparently for whatever reason, not enough voltage makes it through the socket to allow the bulb to flicker. It just kind of glows a bit. February 18, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Light Sensing Socket Turns on but never turns off. Total waste of money. Will return to Home Depot next trip. November 10, 2013
