Customer Questions & Answers

i need it a tiny bit smaller than regular socket

Asked by: Robyn
Only way you will be able to know if it is just right for your specific purpose is to order it and return it if it does not fit.

Can these be stacked to supply two inch extension?

In other words, is it ok to screw one extender into another extender in a recessed ceiling light?
Asked by: Bud
Dear valued consumer, we would not recommend this. Why would you need to use two of them?

I have recessed lighting (don't know what type of can and trim) with Sylvania 90-watt LEDs LED14PAR38/DIM/830/FL40/W/RP

Will this extender work with those bulbs?
Asked by: RG

Are these ok to use in an outdoor application? Specifically on the recessed fixtures on the underside of the roof of my screened in porch.

1 in. Recessed Lighting Socket Extender is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I needed Worked perfectly!! Easy to install. If you have an older recessed can and need to change the bulb, this adapter works!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great extender Works as advertised. The reason I purchased this extender is because it is made of porcelain and not cheap plastic like most you buy. Wish this could be purchased at my local Home Depot, but for whatever reason, it is only sold at, but you can have it shipped to your local Home Depot store at no cost. I bought this extender to get my LED lights in a can fixture further away from the socket. I was getting flickering from the light and hopefully this will fix that issue. I am learning that LEDs are different than incandescent lights in several ways other than the obvious-cost, life, etc. In particular, LEDs tend to emit heat upwards whereas incandescent bulbs sends heat downward--away from the fixture. That means when using an LED bulb in a can fixture, a person needs to ensure there is enough gap in the can light to allow heat to drift downward around the bulb--that is, the bulb should not be "buried" in the can fixture so heat can't get out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Definitely use these so you can use a brighter bulb I ordered 3 of these for the Halo H99ICAT 4-inch recessed lights. I have the 993W trim kit (white baffle trim) and with this socket extender, I can use a 50watt PAR20 bulb (Sylvania #14700 - this is a flood bulb, not a "spot") and it looks great. I have it on a dimmer and it looks great on full power or anywhere between. The trim gets pretty warm but I am using the manufacturer recommended trim kit, extender, and bulb wattage/type so I am not worried. Also, despite it getting hot, it has never clicked off (all the Halo housings have a thermal protection built-in that turn the bulb off when it gets too hot...comes back on once it cools). I thought the price was a little high for a basic porcelain extender but I wanted to use the official/recommended accessory to avoid any I only needed 3 - if I had 15 or so I'd prob try to find an alternative. On a side note, I tried using the Halo 992W trim (wall-wash trim kit for the 4-inch) and I did not like it. I have the wall-wash trim kits on three 6-inch H7ICAT housings and it looks great...but the 992W trim with the 4-inch H99ICAT housing, H1999 extender, and 50w PAR20 bulb - the light leaks out between the trim ring and the ceiling drywall. In Halo's fairness, the 992W is NOT a "compatible" trim kit for the H99ICAT but I figured I'd try it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Home Depot Was Great Not much to review about the product since it's just a socket extender but Home Depot was great. Shipped quickly provided tracking # etc.. This product is hard to find and Home Depot had it at the best price also!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent for can lights to enable use of LED bulbs These worked well in my IC ceiling lights so I can use a PAR 20 LED bulb. Home Depot had the lowest price I could find.
