You might want to consider getting your 555 lamp sockets from this guy. At $0.59 each if you have to buy a lot of these the savings will more than pay for shipping charges.

Quoted from Krh13:

Thanks for the suggestion. I received some replacement sockets today and are not the correct ones. The bulb fits and the socket fits, but they will not turn more than 1/16th of an inch on the board. Guess I am getting a start on my spare parts bin!

Try your sockets again. These are close tolerance parts and they have to fit tight. I am installing mine today and some are so tight that I have to complete twist with a pair of pliers. You don't need to horse them because the pliers really boost your leverage. Just a slow gentle twist should work.
