Ive never seen them. 

 

I have actually changed some bayonet holders on some lamps over to ES holders since I didnt want to be buying 2 lots of lightbulbs for things, and almost everything except for a few cupboards and the basement lights are ES. I initially just bought some cheap clearance lamps for $2 and swiped the holders off them and put them into the other lamp, but since then ordered about 25 e27 holders and the cap with the thread on it from aliexpress. Only used a couple but exactly the same as the ones that were on the $2 lamps.

 

Only issue is on some I have which have a shade that goes on the ring on the lamp. They are still b22 with just dumb lamps in them, the e27 holders have a larger thread on them for the shade, so I would have to swap for e14 to keep the shade, and that really limits bulb selection.

Bunnings have batten holder types now in ES which I will use for the additional basement lighting when I get around to it.

 

These look similar to the ones I ordered. A legit holder will not have a metal outter thread that is connected to one terminal, it will have a plastic or isolated metal thread and the second connection will be a contact at the bottom so it connects when the bulb is almost at the bottom so its finger safe for adult fingers when re-lamping them.

 

Also once clipped closed, those things are a prick to open up again when in a deep metal shade.
