Transparent Gold SPT-1 Lamp Cord Sets nicely harmonize with brass and gold colored lighting. Standard insulated 18 gauge wire has 2 parallel copper wires. The positive/hot is smooth, neutral/negative - has ribs. U.L. Listed for table & floor lamps were cord is exposed. Stripped, copper-tipped ends simplify wrapping wire around socket screws. Molded-on plugs are polarized and permanently attached to lamp cord. SPT-1 rating has traditional plastic insulation, see below.
The 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.
SPT1 has a thinner plastic coating than the more recent SPT-2 lamp cord.This traditional SPT1 size lamp cord easily slips 1/8 IP lamp pipe.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.
