When it comes to creating a unique and stylish lighting setup, pendant lampholders are a popular choice. At Lampfix, we understand the diverse needs of our customers, especially those looking for lamp holders that hang off a wire. That's why we proudly present our extensive cordgrip lampholder range, designed to cater to various tastes and preferences.

If you're new to using pendant lampholders, we recommend checking out our guide blog on "How to make a pendant" for valuable insights. Often referred to as cordgrip lampholders, these fixtures feature a cordgrip that allows safe hanging from the ceiling.

We understand and use our lampholders and show you how we use them on a video on each product page!
