Introduction: Simple Adapter From Bulb Light E27 to Socket
Have you ever had a situation when you need a socket, and nearby, from sources of electricity, there is only a light bulb. And here I was in this situation. So I decided to make an adapter from the bulb holder E27 to the socket.
Took a led light bulb and old light socket. First of all, I disassemble the light bulb.
I disassemble the socket and disconnect the metal frame of the socket.
I try to insert the socket into the body of the bulb.
The socket didn't fit. I take scissors on metal and cut off all superfluous. Then I take the light bulb, put it to the cover of the socket and circle the contour of the bulb. Used an awl.
I cut off everything superfluous with Scissors.
I drill the base of the bulb. Solder the wire to a larger cross-section.
With the help of thermal glue, I fix the socket in the body of the bulb.
I fasten the cover from the socket. I sand the contour of the edge with sandpaper
Сhecking how it works
While I was making this outlet, I came up with another version of this adapter. It is more convenient to use and, most importantly, you will have a light source.
Again disassemble the bulb.
I check how the contacts are located.
To get to the bottom contact, I drilled the base of the bulb.
I make a hole in the ceiling of the bulb and stretch the wire.
I insert and solder the wires to the contacts of the bulb
I removed the excess solder on the bottom contact of the bulb.
With scissors on the metal, I make a small notch.
Checking how it works
Both options have the right to life, but I liked the second option more. It is more functional, you still have the light source, you can on/off the instrument with the network filter button.
I agree that in everyday life such homemade products are not useful, but in an emergency very useful.
Thanks for your attention.
