Premium Brass Lamp Sockets are noticeably superior to standard sockets. Each is superbly crafted of heavy turned brass with a matching brass turn knob switch. Wire exits thru socket-cap. Socket-cap and socket-shell screw together with a threaded ring. This provides a strong joint, far better than standard sockets, where cap and shell just snap together. Use on new and antique table and floor lamps.
If using premium brass lamp socket with uno fitter shade: special uno threads, at light bulb-end of lamp socket, enable most lampshades and holders, with 1-1/4" threaded center ring, to screw directly on to socket.
Use with: lamp cord set to wire lamp-socket
I used this and a second premium lamp socket to replace two faulty lamp sockets. I have now purchased four premium lamp sockets and am very pleased with their features and material. They are very reliable and the best I have found!
You get what you pay for and the sockets I purchased were a little more money, but worth it. They operate smoothly and efficiently.
As described, fast shipping, great customer service. Will use Paxton again.
Premium Brass Lamp Sockets
This is a very well made socket. It has the UNO thread, so a steel reflector/shade I'd made in my shop screwed right on. The socket is sufficiently heavy to mount a vintage look steel shade, and parts are well machined & finished throughout.Paxton's price was very reasonable when compared to other lamp supply companies online. Prompt attention to the order and good follow-through by Paxton made it a great little purchase to complete a very special lamp. With an antique style light bulb, and the steel reflector/shade, this socket made a really good job.
