Based on my experience, choosing a candelabra socket involves considering the size, shape, and material of the socket. Here are the steps to follow:
- Determine the bulb type: Candelabra sockets are designed to hold bulbs with a small base, typically E12. Make sure to choose a socket that is compatible with the type of bulb you plan to use.
- Choose the size: Candelabra sockets come in different sizes. The most common sizes are 2/16 inch (0.125 inch), 3/16 inch (0.1875 inch), and 1/4 inch (0.25 inch). The size of the socket you choose will depend on the size of the opening in the fixture.
- Consider the shape: Candelabra sockets come in different shapes, including straight, angled, and looped. Choose the shape that best suits your fixture.
- Choose the material: Candelabra sockets can be made from different materials, such as brass, porcelain, or plastic. Brass sockets are the most durable, while porcelain sockets are heat-resistant and suitable for high-temperature applications.
- Consider the features: Some candelabra sockets come with additional features, such as a switch or a dimmer. Consider these features if you want to control the light output of your fixture.
