light socket outlet adapters for outdoors?
I've been wanting to wrap a lighted swag garland around my lamp post, but we don't have an existing outlet built in. Someone in Lowe's suggested I put a socket adapter on it to add an outlet, but they only have ones intended for indoor use. He said it should be ok as long as the light isn't exposed to rain/snow. The light is covered, but there is a gap that goes all the way around the base (similar one pictured below). Would it be unsafe to do that?
e only adapters I've seen, which are intended for indoor use, are similar to this:
My lamp post looks similar to this, except that it takes one standard size bulb, but you can see the opening near the base:
