Finish Care & Maintenance
No metal fixture, no matter the finish, is guaranteed against corrosion especially in salt air environments. If your fixture is installed in a location near salt water, we recommend cleaning it frequently.
If your fixture is not installed in a location near salt water, we recommend periodic cleaning with a mild soap-and-water wash and gentle buffing to extend the life of our painted finishes.
It wasn't the part I needed and we did get that worked out but they sent it based on written description so I don't blame them for sending me a likely part. All that being said, it is a nice heavy duty quality piece that I'm going to use to make my own lamp as soon as I come across the right item to convert.

The exact fix I needed for a salvaged outdoor goose neck lamp. Desired a more rugged assembly with higher wattage than I was able to find anywhere else.

I had bought 8 green porcelain barn lights to replace fluorescent strip lights in my beauty salon at an antique show and seller said that there were numerous places to get the "guts" at. I did considerable searching and this particular socket set up with hex nut coupler was a perfect fit and the price was reasonable. Couldn't be happier with the sockets, now just have to find the time to hang them.

Your product was the right size and very good quality. Fit perfect in my Grandfather's farm "pole light" which is now in my new garage.

Wow! I've been looking all over the Internet looking for this part, and the closest I've come would have had a mogul base and required an adapter to run medium based lights. I do have a suggestion as I couldn't get the retaining ring off until I realized it was a left-hand screw pattern. Lefty-tighty, righty-loosey! I thought I'd ordered the wrong thing for a while. How about warning those of us who don't know exactly what we're doing that this thing goes the opposite way from 99% of the screw patterns in the US. Still, all in all I'm thrilled to have this product in my hand. New life to an old metal shade I've had for years. Thanks!!
From Barn Light Electric -- Due to lighting standards, the thread patterns are universal. They are created in a reversed fashion so that when you remove the light bulb, it does not loosen the socket fitting from the fixture. So therefore, you do need to turn left to tighten and right to loosen. These couplers are hand tightened to ensure the customer will be able to adjust as needed.
