A light socket extender is a lamp holder that is used to extend the reach or height of a light bulb socket.
The socket is typically a simple device that screws into an existing socket and provides a new socket in a different position or orientation.
This holder can be useful in situations where a light bulb needs to be positioned differently, or where a taller lampshade or fixture is being used. Light socket extenders are available in a variety of sizes and styles to fit different types of sockets and fixtures.

This light socket extender (Bayonet to screw) works well as long as you do not have older light fittings/connections.
The depth between the bayonets is not long enough when compared to a bayonet bulb for example, it is only a couple of millimetres but it makes it impossible to fit when: The light shade has a thicker than a couple of millimetre holder, or the plastic screw in fittings/connectors on the light are of the longer type.
