We call these our Color Line double ferrule light sockets because..... you can get them in all types of colors. These double ferrule sockets work with almost all of our pendant light lampshades, including all of our super popular fiber string lampshades and handmade Italian ceramic pendant light shades.
So, why do we call them double ferrule? It's a fancy way of saying two rings. And that's exactly what these light bulb sockets have on them, two rings. The rings are there to hold pendant light shades in place. Most pendant light shade that have an opening between 1 - 5/8 inches to 2 - 5/16 inches wide should work with these double ferrule light bulb sockets.
The ....... comes standard with an included plastic conical strain relief. And if you're looking to some bling to these you can always add a different strain relief by selecting one of our strain relief options found on our website under Lamp Parts and Shades > Accessories > Strain Reliefs. Mix and match a strain relief with the light socket of your choice to make your own unique light bulb socket.
These are e26 base light bulb sockets. That means that they are "standard" base sockets and any light bulb with a normal size base will work with these sockets. That even includes our Giant and XL LED light bulbs.
These light bulb sockets work great with our pendant light cloth covered wire fabric cords.
