That's the way to go :)
I made something simple in about half an hour, using this [1] as

Just get some Polymethylmethacrylat (PMMA - "Plexiglas" - marketing name
here), a spare socket from a removable light, a jigsaw and a heat gun :)

After you have something like this [2] you simply glue it on the socket
with much hot melt adhesive and there you go. :)

Btw. the hole in the Neo is great to tie it to the holder - just in case
some accident happens or so.
