"bought this to replace 1 year old lampholders that had non metal - plastic notches to hold the bayonet pins of the bulb. They had not had much use but even so, they opened out in all cases stopping the bulb working and in two cases the bulb actually fell out and broke. This MK product does have a metal insert so the same problem will not recur - lesson learned - I want reliability - you pays yer money etc etc . This product is excellent and well finished, but also contains a separate cable clamp in addition to the little moulded hooks you route each wire around, so belt and braces. The cable clamp is a little fiddly to put on, but once you get the hang if it, is easy. I will never again buy bulbholders that do not have the metal insert where the bulb retainer pins notch in"
"This was a replacement for a cheap version in my mum's bungalow. Of excellent quality with a metal bayonet holder which should prove more reliable than the previous plastic variety. Very simple to fit and has a useful cord grip."
"The lampholder this replaced was brittle and crumbled in my hand when i took the lampshade off for redecoration. I therefore bought this top brand to replace it. It seems well made and I am hopeful it will last well."
