In restoring a 120-year-old combo gas/electric 4-lamp chandelier, it became apparent that the sockets had to be replaced. After trying to rehab the existing sockets, one gave way and one of 4 crystal lamp shades crashed to the floor and was destroyed. Huge bummer. Went to various big box stores and was very disappointed in the junky sockets they sell. Found this site and bought 4 of this product. The price was a very good value for what I was looking for, shipping was surprisingly fast, and I was not disappointed when the product arrived. My key concern was replacing the crimp-style cap and base with a threaded style for a load-bearing application, which this product offers, although it doesn't say so in the information on this site. The quality of the socket is very high; heavy brass, very well manufactured and lacquered in a high gloss -- just what I was looking for. This project is now complete, and I am very satisfied with the results, as the socket issue was the "Achilles Heel" that gave me so much trouble. I have some other lamp restoration projects and I will definitely keep this company at the top of my list for parts.
