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.
- 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.
The replacement sockets are very difficult to find, especially if you want them with some character. VERY happy with the product, the service and fast shipping.
I have not used these parts(sockets, twisted wire,strain relief) to put my handmade copper and brass lamps together yet. I will be adapting Halo track to pendants with these parts.They appear to be good quality and arrived on time. I have ordered parts from Snake Head to build lamps in the past and they worked out quite well.
Just like it was pictured.
Good fit and worked just right for my purposes.
great quality and great value.
Great quality , straight forward to wire
My order for the antique brass light sockets was processed and shipped promptly. The sockets are of very high quality and were very reasonably priced.
My husband and I build lamps and we only use Snake Head Vintage for our socket and wiring needs. The look is smart, clean and gives every piece we make a classic appearance. I will say that we have trouble mating the socket back together once it’s apart. The catch for the joining ring is very subtle. But overall, we feel the Snake Head lines are handsome and a sound vale!
Great product and service
Just what I needed. Great product
