    I have wired thousands of these lampholders during my time at Lampfix, I love using them but I know they are not everyone's cup of tea.

    So I'll tell you the good things, the bad things and show you how to wire it, to help you make the right choice.



    What is this product?


    This is a lampholder, the bit of a light that holds the light bulb. This particular version mounts a hanging cable, bulb facing down. I have heard them referred to as bulb holders, sockets, fixtures, you name it.  It is a metal lampholder so it has an earth terminal located inside.




    Pros and Cons




    • Its made from solid brass
    • Made in Britain
    • Ceramic insert
    • Won't burn out
    • Long-lasting
    • Easy to use
    • Good looking





    • Doesn't hold a shade
    • Expensive (compared to other lampholders)
    • Cannot use it with 2 core cable -  (Class 1 fittings need earthing)




    How to use it


    We recommend you are competent at electrics to do this. If in doubt you should consult an electrician.
    Watch the video on the picture slider above showing how to wire this lampholder. 





    What light bulb does it take?


    This lampholder takes an E27 or 'ES' bulb.  An ES bulb has a screw cap on it, 27mm wide, and one of the most common bulbs in the UK.
