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. 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.

  2. great dimmer 5 Star Review

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

  3. Perfect replacement 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Sep 28th 2020

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

  4. High Quality / Easy to install 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Sep 27th 2020

    We have a table lamp that we purchased several years ago that has a built in dimmer. We like it so much that I thought I would try and find a company that sold these sockets, and fortunately, my first result was Snake Head Vintage.

    I ordered just one to try out first, and I was immediately impressed with not only the shipping speed, but also the quality of the socket. It was very easy to install and much better than the cheap on it replaced. I plan to rewire all of our lamps with these dimmable sockets. The added bonus is that now we only need to stock 150 watt replacement bulbs!

  5. Great lamp upgrade! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Sep 16th 2020

    I installed these dimmable switches on our bedside lamps this week and, Wow, what a difference they make! I go to sleep earlier than my wife and she likes to stay up reading in bed. The dimming feature lets her set a good reading level without filling the room with light. These fixtures are heavy brass, not the cheap ones from the big box hardware store. Installation was quick and simple and I changed out four switches in less than a hour. Definitely a 5 star product

    Great quality! Better than I expected. The dimmer works great on all bulbs that I have tested in it. Matched the horse light I was repairing with new socket, wiring and antique plug. Great service and arrived on time despite my girlfriend typing in our address incorrectly.

  7. Extremely satified 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Sep 8th 2020

    After looking all over the internet, Snake Head had just what I was looking for - high quality, multiple finishes, and reasonably priced. The socket itself was heavier that I though (compared with the ones at big box stores) and appears to be very well built. I will definitely shop here again.

  8. Is as advertised 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Sep 3rd 2020

    Very satisfied with the performance of these. They perform as advertised.
    Quick service and shipping.
    Thank you,

  9. Service and Quality 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Aug 14th 2020

    Service was outstanding, prompt response to request for assistance.
    I was surprised by the the design of the dimmable lamp socket, The two section are joined (very securely) with a threaded collar, not the press together mechanical joint of the switch I replaced.

  10. Fantastic Product 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Jul 15th 2020

    I have a lamp that I purchased from Restoration Hardware over ten years ago. But it stopped working. This particular product matches it perfectly and has extremely smooth dimming. The knob feels good in the hand and is long enough to grasp without searching for it. I am highly satisfied.
