Why curse the darkness when you can light these 120V 30W candelabra bulbs in the electric candelabra you build. Which you can do because each bulb comes in a matching socket, dark brown, 1-1/8" tall x 13/16" dia with steel wings to compress it into a fitting. Each socket is rated for up to 75W and has quick-disconnect terminals on the bottom. UL.
Time was, these NEMA 10-20 female receptacles were standard for large air conditioners, and if you need one, we've got 'em. These are Hubbell brand, 3-screw terminal type with a pair of mounting holes on the sides. Rated for 10A at 250V and 15A at 125V.
You get no points for guessing why this is called a dog-bone adapter, but if you own an RV you know anyway. This has a 9" 12/3 AWG cable between the standard grounded male plug at one end and the female RV/mobile home receptacle at the other. (It's 12" overall.) Rated for 15A at 125VAC.
What we have here is a standard medium bulb socket attached to a pair of insulated alligator clips with 5" leads, plus a screw-in medium base two-prong outlet, which turns any light into a 120VAC socket. Time was, it was part of a fusebox tester, but now it's just a bargain.
These polarized dimmer outlets turn any metal-based lamp into a 3-way touch-switch, and because our each includes either (3) or (6) of them, the more you buy, the cheaper they are. Rated for up to 200W, they measure 3-1/8" x 2-1/2" x 1-1/4". Prongs are on the back; lamp plugs into the side. ETL listed.
What we have here are 6-outlet power strips, rated for 15A, 9” long with 16” grounded cords, (4) keyed mounting slots on the back and a re-settable breaker on the power switch. We’ll select one for you in grape-juice purple, hot pink or electric blue, unless we pick the unsnazzy black. But at least that one will be slimming. ETL listed.
Ceiling fans often have lights, but they aren’t lights, so don’t try to slow them down with a light dimmer rheostat. Do the right thing and get a fan controller. In a cream/off-white color, these are sized for standard electrical boxes and will need 1-3/8” back clearance. You pick: the dual slide fader for up to a 2.5A fan and a 300W light fixture; or the single slide for fan only, rated for 5A. Both include instructions, wire nuts and mounting screws. UL.
