SPT rating designates insulation thickness: 

The thickness-rating provides varying degrees of resistance to heat and abrasion. Higher SPT rating numbers provide more resistance to abrasion and more protection from electric shock.

  • SPT-1 has traditional, thinner plastic coating than the more recent SPT-2 lamp cord. This traditional size has been used for many years. It easily slips 1/8 IP lamp pipe. SPT-1 is often used on vintage lighting and lamps where threading common size lamp wire through pipe is difficult.

Before making any changes to electrical fixtures and/or lamps:

  • Disconnect plug/wire from the electrical source.
  • Turning lamp off will not protect you from electric shock.
  • If you are unsure how to safely proceed contact a licensed electrician.

Great products

make old lamp safe

Makes a lamp you are afraid to plug in as safe and attractive as when it was new. The cords look original except that they are clean and add the safety of a polarized plug.


Paxton has a great variety of cords for all the great Goodwill lamp finds!
