An Overview On

Light sockets are a basic piece of hardware, yet they come in many variations. With the plethora of light bulb and lighting options available on the market today, finding the right light socket can be difficult — especially with all the additional considerations, such as lead types, extensions and converters.

In order to determine the type of light socket you need, you must first determine the lightbulb’s base and what you intend to use it for. There are two main types of bulbs that are widely available. The most common is a screw. Screw bulbs have threads around their base and are fitted with a classic Edison-style lightbulb. Another common type is the pin, which has two points of contact on its base.

Once you have determined the bulb’s type, measure the threaded base’s diameter (or the distance between the pins) in millimeters. The most common bulb and socket style in the United States is E26 — E as in Edison, and 26 millimeters in diameter.

The Buying Guide

  • Different bases do not alter the wattage, luminance or color temperature of a given bulb. However, pay attention to the bulb’s intended voltage.
  • Some sockets are intended for specific applications. Look for these specialty sockets if you’re making a lamp from scratch or repurposing an existing one.
  • Light sockets are made from a variety of materials. Make sure the material you choose is appropriate for where you will be mounting the socket.
