I have no problem hiring an electrician in I would just like to see what the conversion is like.
Is it just swapping out the fixture itself? or are you screwing it in to the base and dropping a wire.

The socket adapters convert one socket style to another. In the case of a standard e26 Medium base A19 lamp the converter would screw in and provide you with another type of socket for another format of lamp.

okay so just changing that out will allow you to use a standard lamp in a low voltage system? or will it still have to be wired like a standard lamp? Sorry I am new to the whole lighting thing but I am trying to learn

you wanted to convert a 120V fixture for use with 12V lamps. I dont think it could be explained any more completely. You buy your fixture, you install your socket converter, you install your LV lamp, you wire it up to the LV lighting system. Done.

why do you have to be a jackass about this? Im sorry I asked a simple question. I am trying to learn about this side of things I do 95% hardscape and masonry with a small amount of lawn care. lights account for about 0% of my sales and I would like to keep it that way but if its added to a job I will do it. I will not try to sell a $950 lamp though.

No need for name calling here. In defense of S&ML, he was being funny. If you have no experience in lighting and you have no wish to do any lighting, then you should do yourself and your client a favour and seek out a local lighting guy to do this work for them. Doing so will introduce you to a complimentary trade and allow you to build a full team of pros going forward. You don't see any lighting guys taking a kick at doing hardscapes, masonry or lawn care do you?
