Rated 3 out of 5 by csdf Doesn't fit standard socket, looks great though!
It doesn't fit a standard socket (I'm using the nickel plated antique repros), but after going through numerous different shim possibilities I settled on little crescent shaped pieces of pvc pipe and all is good.

by TheUrbanGirl Great price, not a perfect fit!
Depending on what type of socket you are using, this cage may or may not fit. Is easily enough bendable to make it work, so with a little manipulation all will be fine in the end.
Overall for the price I would recommend this product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by FMRX A Very Sturdy & Well Made Wire Bulb Cage!
I have been shopping around for wire bulb cages for a while and the Bergen is among the best I've found. The wire is thick gauge and very robust - you cannot bend the wire even if you try. This is good as with other bulb cages, if you have to open and close the bottom to replace or change the bulb a lot, the loops bend and pop off and you have to use a pliers to retighten (I change the bulb in my workshop depending on the amount of light I require or want at the time).
The top screws and bolts work very well to open and close around socket.
The only cons of this cage are a) because it is so thick and sturdy, it is a bit stiff and hard to open, and b) the diameter of the top is a bit to big to clamp onto my porcelain sockets (I have not tried on metal or outdoor sockets), so I had to squish the loop to make it fit snugly on the porcelain socket.
All in all I highly recommend this bulb cage for commercial or workshop use.

by pablowood Inexspensive wire cage, good value
I incorporate wood handles and rayon wire with these cages. It gives the look of an old shop-light!

Rated 4 out of 5 by hloch great but too shiny
This lamp guard is excellent. It is extremely inexpensive compared to similar product. My one negative comment is that the metal is very shiny and new. It is not pure gold in color either, the metal reflects blue and pink from whatever finish is on it. I will end up spray painting it for the more antique look I am going for, but otherwise it's great.
