Product Description

Solid Brass Light Socket, 6 Different Finishes- Top Quality Supplies For Your Restoration or Handmade Lighting, Lamps, Pendants, etc
Turn-Knob Version, 3-Way Switch

This listing is for one Brass Lamp Socket with a 3 Way Turn Knob Switch, choose between 6 different finishes:

(First picture) Top row left to right: Antique Brass, Polished Copper, Polished Brass
Bottom row left to right: Satin Nickel, Polished Nickel (silver look), Satin Black


Beautiful, unique and sturdy, these vintage style Brass Lamp Socket with a 3 Way Turn Knob Switch are absolutely the best quality around, they're cast brass and have a screw on base instead of the plated brass and snap-on base like cheap run-of-the-mill sockets. Available in 6 finishes, they have a 3-way on/off rotary turn knob and are super simple to work with: simply screw off the base to access the 2 wire connections inside. Perfect for restoring old lamps and lights or for all of your homemade lighting fixtures. 
 
These Brass Lamp Socket with a 3 Way Turn Knob Switch are also available in a turn-knob style and a pull-chain style, listed separately in the "Sockets" section

  • Medium E26 Standard Base
  • UL Listed
  • Rated for up to 250 Watts / 250 Volts
  • Cap base has 1/8 IPS standard lamp pipe thread with set screw
  • 3-way sockets allow you to use a 3 way bulb to get 3 levels of light with each knob click, or you can use any regular bulb and you will have the one level of light, 2 click for on, 2 clicks for off.
  • - Installation note: These sockets, like most self wire-able metal sockets, come with a cardboard lining inside. This should be left in as it acts as an insulator. Do not remove it.

  1. Solid brass light socket and cord 5 Star Review

    Products were very nice heavy gauge switches work well in the cloth covered cords are very nice


  2. Quality That's Unusual These Days 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Sep 27th 2020

    Had a couple of old, quality-brand, brass lamps whose 3-way sockets finally gave up and wouldn't work on anything but the middle setting. Ordered these replacements from SHV and hoped for the best. Surprise, they arrived early, in perfect condition, and were easy to install and work great.
    In this day and age, you can't ask for more. Hopefully they'll make these lamps usable for another 50 years.


  3. l had high hopes 1 Star Review

    Posted by on Sep 25th 2020

    This light socket seems to be very well designed with solid material and construction. Unfortunately the shell has an interference with the base due to a deep indentation opposite the switch knob. This requires excessive force for reassembly of the shell to the base so I am unable to use it.

    RESPONSE FROM SHV: Please contact us for help with this (you didn't leave your name), the indentation is there on purpose!!! It is designed to line up with the notch on the base, and when they are lined up it locks the pieces together so they don't spin while you are tightening them! We show this on the pictures in the listing, there is no need to force the pieces together, they fit together nicely and lock in place.

    We are always here to help with any issues you may have, don't be afraid to ask, it's better than just leaving an anonymous 1 star review on a product that could work great for you if you had reached out to us instead! Thank you :)

  5. Great Product and Great Service 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Mar 2nd 2020

    After a great experience with the first order I'll be replacing more lamp sockets with their quality product. It gives a lot of satisfaction for a such a seemingly small thing!


  6. Great Quality 5 Star Review

    Perfect match to the broken socket that was being replaced.


  7. A Quality light Socket 5 Star Review

    Posted by on May 9th 2018

    Love it--It works great--just like the Quality Sockets that the USA used to make--


  8. Much Higher Quality Than Generic Sockets 5 Star Review

    Posted by on May 10th 2014

    I ordered 4 of the antique brass colored sockets - they arrived quickly and in good condition. They're much higher quality than the equivalents at Home Depot, and cost about the same. One thing to note: make sure that you leave the cardboard insert inside - it prevents shock and allows the bulb to seat properly. When all assembled they are nice and snug, and the on-off switch has a good mechanical feel. They also look great.

    THE MOST IMPORTANT PART:
    I emailed Paul at Snake Head Vintage because I had questions about the parts, and his responses were quick, genuine, and extremely kind. The customer service was really exceptional, and I couldn't recommend this store any more highly. Please buy from Snake Head Vintage!
