Lamp Sockets



Caution: Electrical Hazard!

Important! You must remember that before you attempt to fit, replace, or remove any of the parts on an electric lamp or fixture you must always disconnect or unplug the lamp or fixture from any source of electricity before you begin. Simply turning the lamp "off" will not protect you from an electrical shock.

If you are not sure how to safely disconnect your lamp or fixture from its electrical source, you should contact a licensed electrician or your local power company for further instructions


          There is a vast difference in quality of sockets.  The "Deluxe" sockets shown below are much heavier than standard, and much easier to assemble & disassemble, compared to the Regular snap-in type socket.  The shell is threaded on both ends.  The captive ring slips over the cap, and threads onto the top of the shell after it is wired.  Couldn't be easier!   If you've ever had to disassemble a regular snap-in socket, you'll really appreciate this feature.   The old stand-by "regular" snap-in socket is fine, until you get ready to take it apart.  Nine times out of 10, you'll ruin the socket trying to pry off the cap or when applying pressure where it says, "Press Here".  The Deluxe socket solves this problem, and is well worth the price difference.

 The Deluxe sockets are far superior to the snap-together style on a bridge lamp, where the weight of the shade is hanging off the end of the socket.

A lot of old lamps have sockets that have threads on the outside.  These are called Uno sockets.  Now they are widely used only on bridge lamps, where the shade hangs downward.  The Uno fitter on the shade is threaded on the inside, and screws onto the end of the socket.

   Uno Shade

 Uno fitters on many shade frames are recessed 1" or 2", which helps hide the socket itself.  This is good if you have a pull-chain type socket and using a fabric or hardback shade. 

 If you're using a Glass shade on a bridge lamp, we recommend a turn-knob socket, or a push-thru switch.  If you've ever had a pull-chain snap back and break a glass shade, you'll know why we do not recommend pull chain socket with a glass shade. 

  A Uno fitter flush at the top of the shade provides easier access to the on-off switch.
