Lamp holders Information – Lamp holder styles

Our Lampholders come in the following types in various Bayonet Cap (BC/B22) and Edison Screw (ES/E27) sizes:

  • Cord grip lamp holders for use with Ceiling Light Pendants, the cord grip unscrews, you wire the lamp holder then tighten the cord grip up again to grip the flex.
  • Threaded base entry half inch & 10mm lamp holders mostly used for table lamps or light fittings with a threaded rod to attach the lampholder to. Our threads are all standard 26 TPI.
  • Hooked Lamp holders where a hook with a hole for the wire hooks onto chain to support heavier fittings with glass light shades.
  • Batten Lampholders often seen on Theatre Mirrors or Make Up Mirrors, we supply these with matching screws.
  • Riser Lampholders come with a riser tube and base to make the whole light fitting, supplied with matching screws.
  • Side Entry Lamp holders useful if you have a bottle or vase to convert and don’t want to drill a hole in them.
  • Directional Lamp holders with a 180 degree swivel so they can be placed on a ceiling or wall and offer directional light.

Please use our product filters to help narrow the lamp holder style and available bulb type.
