Product Information

The E12 Basic Socket in black is a clean and simple candelabra e12 style socket made from black thermoplastic. This socket is intended for candelabra bulbs and is not compatible with standard e26 base bulbs, so be sure to confirm the size of the socket and bulb that you need for your project before ordering. But, if you are working with a chandelier or decorative fixture with an e12 bulb base, then this is the socket for you! Add some extra to your fixture by purchasing one of our candelabra sized socket covers for a finished look. The top threading is 1/8 IPS and ready to work with any cord grip style best suited for your project.

These sockets are self-locking! Do not assemble the sockets with the terminal inside before it is wired. The terminal will lock the socket permanently.

    Tight Squeeze

    The parts did not not fit together very easily making it hard to assemble and even harder to take back apart.
