Metal Strain Relief Piece, Threaded Cord Grip - Great For Cloth Covered Wire! 1/8 IPS Male Threads

Brass construction with a nylon set screw to tighten up onto your cord, holding it in place

Works with ANY of our cloth covered cords, except the heavy duty 14 gauge cords.

Choose between (Left to Right, first picture): Antique Brass, Polished Copper, Brass, Satin Nickel, Polished Nickel, Satin Black.

Go the extra mile: use these metal wire strain reliefs to not only give your fixture a beautiful finished look, but also add a great safety feature to your hanging pendants and other weight-bearing light fixtures. They thread into the base of any standard light socket (or use a nut to fasten them to anything, like a ceiling canopy mount) and when you tighten up the set screw, it will hold your cord firmly in place, taking the weight off of your wire connections inside your socket or ceiling canopy. No more struggling to tie knots or use cumbersome crimps inside your socket! 


  • 1/8 IPS Male Threads (fits all of our sockets, or use a nut to fasten these to any canopy or fixture you want to hang cords from!)
  • Yes these metal wire strain reliefs are compatible with all varieties of cord we sell, including all 2-wire and 3-wire options (The only exception is our 14 gauge cords, those are super thick and will not fit in any of our strain relief pieces).
  • Installation note: thread the base onto the socket or fixture, loosen the set screw completely and slide in your cord. Complete your wire connections as needed, tighten up the set screw and your cord is held in place, nice and snug!

    Perfectly threads into the end of the socket. Although relatively small, another very high quality piece, weighted perfectly.

    It's nice how the strain relief pieces can be chosen to match the socket color, or they can be chosen to contrast against the socket color.

    Great for cord strain relief

    These work great with the matching fitters and sockets. I’m a repeat customer and love the quality Snake Head Vintage offers as well as their customer service. An outstanding company to do business with!

    Metal strain relief.

    A very nice product. I would prefer to see a blunt metal set screw used in place of the plastic one that they come with.

    Reply from SHV: Glad you like them! Since the set screw is being tightened onto an electrical cord it is safer to have a plastic one, metal would risk someone driving it too far into the cord and causing a hazard.

    High Quality Products

    The product was just as pictured and described. I would highly recommend this seller. I had an issue with a type of cord. The replacement cost more. The seller simply discounted the price of the higher cord amount. Excellent customer service.

    Exactly what I needed

    These were just what I was looking for! I didn't want a plastic one, and this brass is perfect. I want more lighting projects so I can use these more.

    I prefer this type of strain relief as they are easier to use and look great when screwed into a brass socket.
