Product Description

Solid Brass Dimmable Light Socket, Turn Knob has Full Range Internal Dimmer
- Top Quality Supplies For Your Handmade Lighting, Lamps, Pendants

This listing is for 1 socket, choose between 4 different finishes:

Antique Bronze, Polished Brass, Polished Nickel, Black

Beautiful, unique and sturdy, these vintage style light bulb sockets are absolutely the best quality around, they're cast brass and have a screw on base instead of the plated brass and snap-on base like cheap run-of-the-mill sockets. And what makes these even more special? Their ability to dim and brighten a light bulb controlled right from the sockets knob! Turn the knob, the bulb clicks on, than as you turn the knob further the bulb will brighten, you can choose your desired light level. Works great with Edison bulbs, or any incandescent light bulb. Easy to work with: simply screw off the base to access the 2 wire connections inside. Perfect for restoring old lamps and lights or for all of your homemade lighting fixtures.
 
- Medium E26 Standard Base 
- UL Listed
- Rated for up to 150 Watts / 120 Volts
- Marked as Incandescent Bulbs only, but a CFL or LED that is labeled "Dimmable" should also work in these.
- Only rated for use on 120 VOLTS (North American standard household voltage)! We have not tested these on 220/240 volts as found internationally.
- Cap base has 1/8 IPS standard lamp pipe thread with set screw
- Installation note: These sockets, like most self wire-able metal sockets, come with a cardboard lining inside. This should be left in as it acts as an insulator. Do not remove it.

  1. Dimmer control knob falls off 4 Star Review

    Posted by on Jan 14th 2022

    As I unpacked my 2 dimmers, I noticed that one of the control knobs had fallen off inside the plastic bag. It is a pressure fit made of a hard plastic. It seemed to go back on OK, but didn't match the hefty, solid quality of the rest of the dimmer. Both control knobs fell off during installation and during use. We put tape around the internal teeth and created a tighter fit, but are unsure of how long this will last. We don't want to use glue. Is there a better design choice or material that can be used on the knobs? The actual dimmer functions and looks great.

    RESPONSE FROM SHV: Hello, sorry to hear this happened, it sounds like the knob stems may have been damaged in shipment, usually they fit very nice and tight, actually if anything sometimes we get customers who ask us how to remove the knobs, they want to make sure they are pull-off because they are on there so tight! So, I think it's not so much a bad design but just damage to the stem, and we can certainly replace the internal workings of the socket for you. The pressure fitting is how the dimmer knobs have to be, they can't screw on and off like regular sockets, because regular sockets only have to turn one way, dimmer sockets have to be able to turn both ways without loosening. But again, the pressure fittings usually work great, we sell hundreds of these sockets and don't ever hear of problems with the knobs being loose, so I do think it was an issue that they got damaged and are now loose because of it, we can replace with new ones. Thank you, -SHV

    I was very pleased to see that you provided quality product at a fair price in a timely fashion. Fewer and fewer companies consistently provide all three. Remember, that is the formula for your success.

  8. High Quality Dimmer Socket 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Nov 28th 2020

    I was building an industrial pipe lamp and decided to try this dimmer socket because it uses a threaded ring that makes it easier to epoxy the bottom shell to the pipe then attach the upper shell without having to twist the upper shell. The dimmer socket is well-made from heavy gauge metal and has a very solid feel to it. So far, it is the highest quality dimmer socket I have found.

    Worked well with our LED lamps. Also really appreciate the robust construction (not the typical push together pieces).

    I needed to replace a Robert Abby dimmer that had failed. This was a perfect fit, the price was right and the shipping, fast.
