Rated 5 out of 5 by lynnsfave These are a god-send.
Most ceiling fans now are coming with candelabra base light bulbs, but there's not a large selection of candelabra base light bulbs. The candelabra to medium enlarger socket is a god-send because any regular base light can be used. And getting them from 1000Bulbs is about half the price of this product on Amazon!

My wife is a quilter and wanted more light in her quilt room. We have two ceiling fan lights each which could only hold four 60 watt candelabra bulbs. I increased the lighting to 100 watts by using this enlarger socket and CFL bulbs (6000K) natural light, and still saved money on wattage output. Any layman can do this to increase lighting in a room and save money. The whole job took less than an hour and saved me about $300.00, if I were to have installed cam lighting.

You're going to need this Enlarger socket if you own certain types of ceiling fans, especially Harbor Breeze. Great fans but they're mostly candelabra based and with today's LED choices in Standard bulb bases, you can now light up a whole room with less wattage usage.
NOTE: Some HB fans won't fit the longer LED bulbs with this adapter (enclosed glass domes).

Rated 4 out of 5 by JollyJack Works for me.
Needed to install a brighter bulb than was available in candelabra base models. Standard base bulb fits and works as expected.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Wombat With the adapter to handle medium base, one can now use the new efficient LED bulbs rather than being stuck with CFL's, or worse, regular bulbs.
New light fixtures have "candelabra" sockets rather than the normal base of regular light bulbs.
While one can purchase compact fluorescent (CFL) bulbs in the candelabra base, the newer LED lights come with the standard base.
Thus, one is prevented from using the higher efficiency LED (lower wattage equals lower cost).
To the rescue is the "Candelabra to Medium Socket Enlarger - PLT S51".
The newer LED bulbs have come a long way and are very bright - in fact, cannot tell from regular or CFL once it is turned on. And LED bulbs are instant on at full brightness unlike CFL bulbs.
The base enlarger is perfect to use the LED bulbs in new light fixtures.
