- Anne E.Verified BuyerRated 5 stars5 months agoExactly 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!!!Was this helpful?CCColor Cord Company5 months agoThank you, Anne!

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 ?Was this helpful?CCColor Cord Company2 years agoHello! I am sorry to hear that you had issues with your socket assembly.
