    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    Many low-power (less than 10W) lamps have E14 connector, but many lights (chandeliers etc.) have E27 sockets. If you wish to use low-power E14 (14 mm) lamp with light which has E27 (27 mm) sockets - you have to either replace the socket or use this small adapter.

    Cons:

    Some CFLs (Compact Fluorescent Lamps) have very short connector and don't screw into this adapter.

    Not suitable for frequent lamp changing.

    Two pieces of metall and one piece of plastic should be cheaper.

    OtherThoughts:

    I didn't check, but using these adapters for incandescent lamps may be dangerous because of overheating.

    Bottomline:

    If you want to screw a low-power E14 lamp into E27 socket - buy some, they are cheap and do their job.
