150-Watt Screw-In Touch Dimmer

The Westek 150-Watt Screw-In Touch Dimmer is a convenient way to select the right amount of light you need for a room or mood. This dimmer offers settings from night-light to full brightness while eliminating the need for expensive 3-way bulbs. Simply touch any metal part of the lamp to alternate between brightness settings.

I had two of these before for two metal floor lamps, and they worked perfectly from the start. When one module failed after about 2 years I got another one to replace it and it did NOT work when I first put it on the same floor lamp. I tried it on the other lamp and then it DID work. I think the metal contacts on the side that touch the lamp metal body must have good contact, as these are sensitive to any resistance.
The first touch module failed because I moved the floor lamp and banged it hard on the floor causing the bulb to blow which due to movement caused a brief short that destroyed the first module. This can happen to any touch lamp if they are handled roughly while powered.
It does extended the height of the bulb 2 inches so you must have enough clearance.
Pros: Easy to Use, Easy Replacement, Eco-Friendly, Great Dimming, Easy Installation

No, I do not recommend this product.
My touch lamp switch died and my light won't turn on/ off. I bought this 3 way touch switch and it will not work with this or any of the 4 lamps that I tried. It also raises the height of the bulb so that you can not put the shade bracket back on. I will return this item and purchase the touch lamp on/off switch that WESTEK makes and see if this works?
My only other choice is to buy a new touch lamp!!
