Product Information

The E12 Shade Ready Socket in black is a black thermoplastic e12 socket with threads and removable shade ring that is designed to hold candelabra specific shades. 

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 and a shade, then this is the socket for you!

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.

    Exactly What I Needed

    I bought a lamp from an estate sale and it didn't work. I was able to get a part number off the socket. When I googled the part number it took me to your store. I was skeptical that I would be able to fix this myself, but I did! Thank you!!!

    Very good and timely service but...

    Very good and timely service, socket seems to of good quality however...

    This socket have a self locking system, so after I installed it need to added a metal cover and could not open it again. Would know how to “unlock” it ? If I need to remove it, the only way is to break it ?

    Hello! I am sorry to hear that you had issues with your socket assembly. The socket locks into place for safety reasons, but we do try to provide warnings inside our packaging as well as on the product page. Feel free to send us an email to info@colorcord.com and we are happy to send a discount code for a replacement.
