Our Basic Socket is made out of hard black plastic and is the most popular socket for our cloth covered wire. This simple socket features a smooth surface and is our preferred socket to be paired with our socket covers. If you plan on using this socket with our DIY light cord, we recommend using a cord grip / strain relief for a secure attachment, sold separately.
Please do not exceed more than a 5 lb pull weight on this socket. If you would like to assemble a socket and cord for a lighting application, please consult a licensed electrician.
