Product Information

Overview

Our most popular socket pairs perfectly with cloth covered wire and is a must-have for most lighting projects. The Basic Socket is a simple socket made out of hard black plastic with a smooth surface that also works nicely with our socket covers should you want to complete your fixture with a decorative finish. However, if you plan on making a DIY light cord with this socket, we highly recommend using a cord grip for a secure attachment. Cord grips are sold separately

With all lighting projects and DIY fixture assembly, we always recommend consulting a licensed electrician.
