Customer Questions & Answers

Does this item have an off setting?

Description and photo show dim to bright but it doesn't say anything about an off setting.
Asked by: Anonymous
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.

Will this dimmer work permanently installed in a ceiling cannister to control an R40 LED fixture?

Asked by: Eric
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.

Customer Reviews

Indoor Light Socket Dimmer - White is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 15.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great dimmer, great price I was originally looking for an entire replacement dimmer socket for my lamp as the original one no longer worked after an incandescent bulb blew out. I saw this very inexpensive dimmer that screwed directly into the old socket and thought, considering the very reasonable cost, I'd give it a try. To sum it up, it works as well as the original dimmer. The dimmer dial is not as easily reached as the original dimmer stem but a minor issue considering all other aspects of the product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Is truly full range Unlike many other similar products, this dimmer will gradually turn on from zero to full brightness. It also does not lose ability to dim after a lengthy period at full brightness. Good product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from CAN ONLY BE USED WITH DIMMABLE BULBS. This product is fine quality and value as manufactured. Best use to control "over" 60watts of light indoor or outdoor.
