This listing is for 1 socket, 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 light sockets 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, these keyless brass light sockets 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 keyless brass light sockets 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 660 Watts / 250 Volts
  • Cap base has 1/8 IPS standard lamp pipe thread with set screw
  • NO on/off knob, so these would need to be turned on and off by something like a wall switch, an in-line switch, or by unplugging the fixture. 
  • - Installation note: These vintage light 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.

    Lamp Sockets - The Best

    Posted by Unknown on May 16th 2023

    I just received four different finishes of the solid brass light socket. The quality is outstanding. I took a chance, sight unseen, after seeing the "junk" available at local hardware stores. Wow! I am 80 and have to repair two pull-chain lamps. At least I have the best parts! Thank you!

    Higher Quality Parts

    Posted by Luke on Oct 13th 2022

    I've been using sockets from Snake Head for a few years. Can you get sockets at the big box stores? Yeah, but they're lightweight, cheap, low end parts that will leave you disappointed. If I'm going invest my time making something, I want to be proud of it. Yes, there is a difference, you will notice it as soon as you hold these in your hands. These are heavy, quality parts, that enhance your project. Don't go halfway, use the good stuff.

    Solid Brass Light Socket

    This light socket one of the best I've seen in years.
    It is made of quality material and the best feature is you can break it down into several pieces to install. No more trying to screw it on with wires twisting all up. The price is well worth what you pay. I highly recommend!
