Solid Brass Uno Threaded Light Socket, Vintage Paddle Knob
Top Quality Supplies For Your Restoration or Handmade Lighting, Lamps, Pendants, etc
This listing is for 1 socket, choose between 6 different finishes:

(First picture) Top row left to right: Antique Brass, Polished Copper, Raw Unfinished Brass
Bottom row left to right: Satin Nickel, Polished Nickel, Satin Black
These awesome sockets are similar in style to our others, but are threaded on the top with "Uno" threads, a standard thread size that allows for a shade fitter to be screwed on. With so many shade sizes, shapes and colors out there, let your imagination run wild and find the perfect shade for you!
Shade fitters are sold separately, they come in 2-1/4", 3-1/4", and 4" sizes, see the "Sockets" section of our store.

Beautiful, unique and sturdy, these vintage style light bulb 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 2 finishes, they have a 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. 

- 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
Single turn on/off knob
- 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.

    Turn-Know light socket

    We bought this and some cloth covered cord to rewire an antique table lamp. We put in a black light bulb into the lamp and it makes the base of the lamp glow creating a cool effect. We we definitely satisfied with the quality of the switch and the cord and the resulting lamp. Would use Snake Head Vintage again.

    Socket is solid, not tinny like the replacement ones found in hardware stores. Kinda makes searching for authentic antique ones unnecessary. Priced fairly

    I’ve had my train station, porcelain light shade for year’s. Until recently the only replacement parts were ugly old connections. I’m excited to finally hang my light, thanks to these beautiful parts….

    This is sooo well made!

    Posted by Cheryl on Jan 15th 2022

    This weighed more than twice the one I just replaced, and screwed together instead of pressing together. I'm very happy with it and look forward to ordering parts for more projects.
