Product Description

!!!!!----- This green and yellow 16 gauge 3-wire is priced by the foot, so please adjust your quantity accordingly. -----!!!!!

!!!!!----- Example: If you want 10 feet of green and yellow 16 gauge 3-wire, enter 10 in the quantity box, and you will get one 10' length of wire.!-----!!!!!

The perfect addition to any lamp or small appliance such as fans and radios, this beautiful cotton covered green and yellow wire is a great way to replicate that vintage industrial age charm.

This is BRAND NEW, antique style 3-wire, 16 gauge stranded copper electrical cord (known as 16/3, Note: this is a thicker gauge than standard lamp wire which is usually 18 gauge, hence the slightly higher price). The 3 wires allow you to use a ground wire, although many lighting situations won't require one, in which case just clip the green wire and leave it unused. This cotton covered green and yellow wire differs from regular 3-wire round pulley cord in look because it is NOT completely round, instead the 3 wires are twisted around each other and then covered in the braided fabric, leaving the texture of the twist beneath it visible.

  • Fabric: Cotton
  • Max: 600 Volts, 105 Degrees Celsius
  • Diameter: 6.8mm, or about 1/4"
  • UL: No
  • Made in USA

  1. Exactly what I was looking for 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Oct 26th 2020

    This is exactly what I was looking for to make a 7 foot cord. The cord is flexible enough to roll up and is about as supple as you can get for 16 gauge. I wish 18 gauge was available but I don't think codes would allow 18 guage in this style. Anyway, this 16 gauge is more supple (less stiff) than the standard black SVT-3 PVC jacketed cord you find on most appliances these days.
    The color is exactly as shown in the picture.
    I really liked that the ends were taped up so the cloth braiding wouldn't unravel during shipping.
