Our DIY Flat Parallel SPT-1 Wire in black is a specialty wire that is generally used in specific applications, such as restoration work or select lamp assembly projects. Uses for this 2-conductor cloth-covered wire are generally limited to advanced level DIY projects or when upgrading a vintage style fixture with modern components. All of our cord is sold by the foot so you can order as much as you need for your project.
This SPT-1 wire features two parallel wires surrounded by an extra-safe PVC jacket, which is covered with a double insulated cover finished with the color rayon cloth. This cord is not UL Listed but is suitable for lamps and small appliances. We recommend ordering 1-2 feet more than you need to compensate for length cuts and wire stripping. Max weight rating is dependent on the final application and assembly.
Please note: Since this wire is cut to order, we do not accept returns. It is imperative that you confirm the specifications and color of this wire are suitable for your project prior to ordering. Due to various monitor settings and calibrations, colors may vary slightly from what you see on your screen. You can order a sample to see the color in person.
