3-Way Turn Knob Lamp holder - Black is rated
Rated 5 out of
decent quality, easy to install
I just installed this today. The unit is plastic but the plastic feels strong. The unit comes apart by unscrewing the top section, then the metal socket can slide out upwards for connecting the 2 wires.With those components removed temporarily, it is easy to screw/turn the bottom threaded section onto a threaded post on the lamp (after passing the wire through. Once this bottom section is tightly threaded, you turn the small set screw to keep it in place, and then connect the metal socket to the wires. Finally you push the socket down and then screw/turn the top section back onto the bottom section. The advantage of this system is that you never have to turn the whole assembly once the wiring is attached, unlike some metal socket sets. Note: this particular socket has a threaded socket on the bottom. Reminder: for safety, the wide blade of a plug (neutral) on the lamp should be connected to the silver screw terminal on this socket.
