I have to affix the sockets to plywood. If my mounting platform was made of metal then my problem would be cutting the slots to fit. Ultimately the platform has to hold the light 2-3" from the negative sandwich.

  As in 'Why screw them in if you don't have to?'
  I just took apart an older model fluorescent light which did have screw-in type bi-pin sockets, but if they're making snap-in parts now, what's the diff? (Assuming they meet UBC (Universal Building Code) spec - which they would almost certainly have to do.

I'm almost ready to start building my UV light box based of the "Ubldit"
plans. My local lighting supplier only had low clearance "snap in" bi-pin
lamp sockets. The lamp sockets were designed to be snapped/slid into an
existing metal housing. I want to screw them onto my platform. What to do?
Do I drill through the snap in socket? I'm currently looking for a lamp
socket which has holes. How to I attach these lights? help!
