Answer: 
If you turn it all the way counter clockwise the bulb will go out. But to make sure there is no current draw I would advise shutting off the switch as well.

Answer: 
There is no "off" position on the dial. It simply rotates to where the bulb goes completely dark. When I turn off the lamp, I use the original dimmer stem which does click off.

Answer: 
Hi 1949ford,
This device is intended to provide adjustable brightness to incandescent light bulbs in standard light fixtures. This allows you to dim the bulb to reduce energy consumption, save money and extend the life of your bulbs.
The light fixture must provide the on-off function.

Answer: 
Although it notes on the instructions to be used only with incandescent bulbs, I'm using a dimmable LED bulb and have had no problems with it at all. I could be wrong, but I suspect the the instructions were written before LED bulbs were as commonplace as now.

Answer: 
Hi Jerry,
I'm Travis from The Home Depot.
This socket dimmer has not been tested for use with LED bulbs and, therefore, is not labeled for use with either LED or CFL light bulbs.
The manufacturer recommends incandescent or halogen light bulbs for use in this dimmer.
Thank you for asking,
Travis

Answer: 
I don't know why you would want to put it in a ceiling cannister, as it would be difficult to get to whenever you wanted to adjust the light level. I think in this case you may want to install a dimmer right at the turn on switch. That would make it much more user freindly.

The dimmer adjustment is on the socket-I would not want to climb a ladder to control the brightness or to use it as a dimed light.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by It's so nice to have controled lighting, from bright to a plesant glow. It's so nice to have controlled lighting, from bright to a pleasant glow. It's easy to install, anyone can do it. January 1, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Top of the line product I have used these dimmers for quit a few years now, and have been totally satisfied with this product. It gives a full range of light control, from candelight to full power. Good produced and well made. Great for setting the mood for any gathering, or just low light at night or in the morning. One thing to note, If you want to have very low light than use a lower watt bulb. It will give you more control when extremely low lighting is desire. January 13, 2015
