I was going to insert this unit down into a cup-like base that has an opening for the turn knob to go through. However, my lamp was such that the knob and opening did not line up. I had to use the pull chain from the original socket with this new outer unit. Which is a tight fit but works OK. The turn-knob piece is very good at attaching to the stem. Be sure to only attach this knob when you are absolutely ready to leave it there. I though I would test it to be sure it did not twist off when using. I put it on before I should have, then had to use needle nose pliers to hold the stem and pull the knob off. I never claimed to be an electrician.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Low quality socket I bought four of these sockets to repair four lamps. The sockets look good, but they are poor quality. The switch mechanism does not operate smoothly, nor does it have a distinctive on / off position. The socket works, but I was really disappointed with the quality of this product. I am considering replacing these sockets already.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Functional, But Not High Quality I was replacing a turn-knob on/off socket that was very difficult to turn. My hope was to find a product that turned smoothly while still feeling like it would last over time. This socket is better than the one it replaced. It does work, sort of. But, it still sort of gets stuck and is hard to turn. It does not turn smoothly. It's sort of cheap. I did not like it.

Rather than spend big bucks on a new lamp (they're expensive!) I chose to repair it myself. Installing the switch was the easiest part of the project by far. Very easy to work with and straightforward installation.
