MERCURY Lyyt | Lamp Socket Converter | B22 to E27 - Bayonet to Edison
About this deal
Simple solution Verified Reviewer Easy way to convert existing bayonet fitting into a screw fitting, I wanted to upgrade to a smart bulb with a screw fitting and this worked well, it was literally as simple to install as changing a light bulb. I was wondering if to speed things up I can just change the actual pendant and leave the ceiling rose in situ to save having to rewire the whole thing fourteen times! However, installing an E27 lamp (bulb) into a B22 holder means that potentially the screw of the adapter/holder, and thence the lamp (bulb) could be live as there is no polarity with B22.

You have a 50/50 chance of plugging them in and getting the outer screw thread connected to the live or the neutral.
If/when I do, if I make sure 100% sure it's switched off at the light switch (or for extra good measure, turn of the lighting fuse at the consumer unit) then surely this would be fine?

Perfect way to change bayonet to screw fitting Verified Reviewer Had been looking for a converter for a while but hadn’t seen them in IKEA before Instead of having to change the existing light fittings this is an elegant solution, just take the old bayonet light bulb out, put the converter in its place and then screw in the new bulb.It's not ideal but perhaps this is enough precaution to see me through a couple of years before I replace them for E27 style bulbs.
