Rated 5 out of 5 by from I used two of these together to change my old flood lights in 6" cans to the retrofit LED Santo p... I used two of these together to change my old flood lights in 6" cans to the retrofit LED Santo products which were too short initially. It worked perfectly!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Copper contacts need finagling It's cheap and probably the only option available at your local Home Depot. Like other reviewers have noted, their is a manufacturing defect with the copper contacts. Mine worked when I screwed my first bulb in, but when I took it out and put it back in, there was no power delivered through the socket. Had to get a pair of scissor and pull the metal contacts on the side of the socket away from the edge so that they actually contact the bulb.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Cheaply made junk Agree with the comments in other reviews about the contacts, they should have been made of springy-er metal. But the worst part is that I went to unscrew it and the threads, being made too thin and soft, sheared right off the plastic (see picture, damage is from trying to get the piece out of the socket). Cheaply made junk; wish the store would carry the nicer Halo porcelain one.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Low Quality You wouldn't think such a simple product would fail within one week but that's exactly what happened to the one I bought! At first I thought it was my bulb or the main outlet but no, it was this socket that went bad and without being dropped or anything like that.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Socket Extender is fine I'm not sure why the several commenters had problems with the contacts of this, but they looked just fine to me and it worked just fine for me. I bought two. One needed to be tightened a little bit conscientiously before it made contact, but they work fine. I am using it with the 4" Halo downlight shower trim to achieve the acceptable bulb wattage, and time will tell if will be able to withstand the heat. It appears that it will.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works for me I havent had any of the problems of other reviewers. Not sure if they're unscrewing them often, but I'm using mine to lower down four LED bulbs in recessed lighting housings, and I dont anticipate having to disturb them for years to come. Mine do exactly what I need them to do - all 4 worked just fine for me the first time I used them, and I cant see anything happening to cause them not to work. If I try to unscrew them often then maybe, but with the LED's I shouldnt have to touch them for years.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Fails Fast Do Not Buy! I bought 6 of these 1 month ago to use CFL bulbs in my track lighting. 2 of the 6 extenders have already failed! That is right folks, a month has gone by with a 33% failure rate.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor quality Six extenders were used in recessed ceiling light fixtures with 50W halogen bulbs. One failed within a year. Thought the bulb burned out, but the metal contacts would not reliably carry the current to the bulb. Bent the metal contacts to try to improve contact with the bulb, but measurement with a multimeter showed no current flow at various spots on the contacts. Cleaning with DeoxIT contact cleaner did not fix the problem.
