This double ferrule phenolic bakelite E12 light bulb socket kit works with standard "candelabra" type bulbs
Phenolic bakelite is a traditional resin material that was popular early in the 20th century for its durability and used for many electrical items including telephones, radios and switches. Its surface is great for painting to produce a high gloss finish.
This phenolic bakelite socket kit is perfect for anyone looking for simple uncomplicated gloss finish socket for an E12 light bulb. This socket works with all of our pendant light cables.
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. These are perfect to use to make your own mason jar pendant lights.
WARNING: a strain relief cable clamp is NOT included. On our website go to Lamp Parts & Shades > Lighting Accessories > Strain Reliefs to select the strain relief to go with your light bulb socket. Any of our strain reliefs will work with this light bulb socket.
