Lamp Socket Swivels provide angle-adjustment between socket and lamp. Use on floor and table lamps where maneuverability of socket is required. Socket swivels are most often used on lamps where shade hangs down. Shade and socket can be maneuvered, enabling light to be specifically directed. Ball type swivel rotates on ball. Socket swivel has female threads at one end, male thread at other end. It screws between socket cap and 3/8", 1/8 IP lamp pipe.
We have a floor hanging lamp gifted to us by lifelong friends which wound up swinging from the cord when the old ball-and-socket failed. Was pleased to find this well-executed version available online, and it did the job splendidly!
I was able to repair my beautiful brass and marble antique bridge floor lamp myself with this lamp socket ball swivel and pull chain antique uno lamp socket. Paxton Hardware had everything I needed to get it done and I am really pleased they helped me do it all by myself!
