This adapter allowed us to continue to use our antique lamp. The size bulb that the lamp required is no longer made, but we can now use any normal Bulb.

My grandmother recently brought down an old floor lamp from her attic. The main source of light was from a massive Mogul-type light bulb. These are much harder to find than one would imagine, though Home Depot does carry them. I opted instead to purchase this adapter base, which allowed her to use a regular light bulb in its place. She was very pleased that her old lamp now had new purpose, and that she would be able to purchase regular bulbs for it, instead of the harder-to-find Mogul bulbs.
Pros: Functional, Looks Great

I found this great 1930's lamp that needed an old size bulb which was very expensive or I needed to rewire i the lamp. The simplest solution was this bulb adapter and now I can use a current size bulb and 1/3 the cost and can use any current lighting wattage I want.
Pros: Easy to Assemble, Functional, Well Made, High Quality of Material, Fast / Speed, Eco-Friendly, Looks Great

The socket adapter was easy to install and works great. Now we only need "regular" light bulbs for this "vintage" lamp. No more going to several stores to try to find the bulbs with mogul base. Wish I'd known about it years ago.

Went into floor lamp socket nicely and now I can use CFL's. The lamp used to be 3-way, now only single but I can live with it. Getting it back out may be difficult.

This product allows me to continue to use an antique lamp that has sentimental value without spending a lot of $$ on special bulbs that have a very short life span. Thank you for carrying it.
