Lamp Holders

Lamp holders, also known as light sockets, are fixtures used in lighting installations. They hold a bulb whilst also providing an electrical connection to it. It is essentially a connection between the wire and the bulb.
Some lamp holders also provide support for a pendant or lampshade.

Lampholders are designed for different lamp sizes. These include:
