This the most popular socket for our DIY cloth covered electrical wire and is featured on our Standard cord sets. This simple socket features a threaded surface and includes a shade ring to help affix a lamp shade or socket directly to the socket with wire and shade rings to diffuse the light. If you plan using this socket with our DIY light cord, we recommend using a cord grip / strain relief for a secure attachment, sold separately.
