Commonly called a clique base, or a rocker base switch night light’s bases are either a push button or a rocker base and are the most common type of base used for light fixtures in homes, offices, and businesses. These typically accept E12 fluorescent light bulbs with a standard 12-inch base. The button base type is usually powered by a DC power supply. Rocker base nightlights are powered by batteries or the AC adapter that is supplied with the unit.
There are several types of these base units. For example, there are those that use the standard 12-inch base and have an optional center post that is attached to the base by the use of an O-ring. This allows the center post to be moved to different locations if required. If you plan on installing an extension cord on the wall then the standard 12-inch base will probably not work with this style of fixture. However, there are several models that will work with an extension cord. It will just take some measuring to determine the width of the extension cord to fit the base you intend on using.
There are many styles of these light bases to choose from. Some are designed to go over the existing fixtures and some are designed to be installed directly over a ceiling fan or window. Most are used outdoors, but they can also be used indoors if you do not want to mount the base directly over the fan or window. These light bases are often made of metal, so you may see a light bulb on top of the base which is sometimes covered with insulation. The insulation acts as a heat sink and keeps the bulb from getting too hot.
The other style of base that can be used on ceiling fans or window treatments is a wall base. This uses a wall-mounting bracket that is located on the floor that has a standard hole through it for the light bulb to fit through. The bracket mounts to a stud location that is in the wall or ceiling.
If you choose to install a base over a ceiling fan then you will need to find a way to hang the light bulb from. There are two options, the traditional way, using brackets and the newer way using the same style of brackets that is known as a “floating” light bulb. Another option is to use a wall mount bracket but to make sure that it does not hang over a fan. it can be very easy to lose the light bulb if you try to hang it from a wall bracket that does not reach the fan blades of the fan.
Some of these different types of bases are made to be used with many different types of light bulbs. For example, an extra-bright white fluorescent bulb may work well with a regular light base and a red light bulb will not work so well. You can even buy a base that has both red and white bulbs in it to give you more choices. Some models will allow you to adjust the brightness and light output depending on what type of light bulb is in use.
When choosing the best base for your light fixture, there are some things to consider when purchasing these. Make sure that the base you select will hold the light bulb securely at the height that is required to provide the desired level of brightness. Also, the light base should have the right amount of light bulb coverage so that the room it is being placed in will receive the right amount of lighting that is needed.
Finally, consider the size of the base when purchasing the light base and the amount of light bulb that will be utilized with the base. This will help you find the right base for the space where the light fixture is to be placed. By doing your homework before you go out and purchase your new fixture, you should end up with the perfect base for the job at hand.
