Trouble locating E27 Socket Covers?

Posted by movin-on (My Page) on

We have just installed suspended patio lighting. We have a couple of socket that we don't want to have light bulbs in. Right how we have covered them with electrical tape.
For a more finished look I tried to find E27 socket covers, but in searching the web I don't find anything.

Can someone help me locate a product that would could be screwed into the sockets to keep them water/dust tight?

Thanks in advance

RE: Trouble locating E27 Socket Covers?

The E27 is essentially interchangeable with our Edison/medium base, the base on the soon-to-be-gone 60 watt A19 incandescent lamp-- often erroneously called a "light bulb".
Water/dust tight? Not sure that such a product exists for that socket as the socket itself does not have those properties.

RE: Trouble locating E27 Socket Covers?

E26 is North American standard (a.k.a. Edison base), barely smaller than European E27 which is generally physically compatible, though light bulbs that fit in the E27 normally are 230V 50Hz.
