    What is this product?

     


    This is a lampholder designed to go on the end of cable hanging from the ceiling.

    These lampholders are economical and easy to use.

    They are especially useful if you have a light shade that has a 40mm fixing hole. Using 2 shade rings you will be able to secure the shade to this lampholder. 

    It is double insulated so it is safe to use with 2 core cable.  They also have an earth terminal if needed and work with 3 core cable.
