There are far too many outright dangerous examples of how not to do this on the internet so the main objective of this was to provide a safe, intuitive, robust, quick, and aesthetically pleasing solution to this issue.

We were interested in making a cast iron pipe lamp with mason jar lights so we turned to the internet for ideas on how to do it. After searching around we were pretty surprised that there aren't currently any good, safe, pretty, and robust ways to do this.

This adapter screws into a standard 3/4" pipe thread and contains both a UL/CSA certified light socket and an easy lid replacement for a standard wide mouth mason jar.

Even the best solutions available on the internet (below) are complex, take extra time to fabricate, and result in a solution that shows too much of the light socket within the jar.

Compared to the EV-Guide solution below. Notice that the custom 3D printed design below allows seamless integration of the light bulb socket within the lid adapter to effectively hide the socket from view.

Even worse there are a few tutorials out there that that require tension on the electrical wires to hold the light socket up into the pipe adapter. The causes stress on the soldered joint and it WILL fail at some point. Once this fails and a wire touches the outer metal frame then this frame is now live with 110V ready to kill. These wires need to have no load and need to be physically protected from the metal pipe with more than electrical tape.
