Cloth Covered Lamp Cord

Cloth Covered Lamp Cord was used on most portable lamps in the early part of the 20th century. Fine quality and authentic style make it an excellent choice for vintage lamp restoration and mid century lighting. This cord should only be used in low temperature and low wattage applications; it is not intended for appliances. Protective plastic insulation covers each individual wire; the two wires are then covered with vintage-looking rayon cloth fabric. This rayon covered twin lamp wire is manufactured with stringent safety measures however it is not U.L. listed.

• Priced and sold per linear foot
• Purchase in any length
• #18-2, 300 volts
• Twin Wire
• Wire enclosed with plastic insulation
• Rayon Cloth covering over plastic insulation
• Use for vintage & antique lamp restoration

Installation:
• Strip cloth covering approximately 2", exposing the 2 plastic covered wires.
• Strip approximately 3/8" of plastic covering off wire
• A UL knot is ideal however due to the rayon covering a simple overhand knot, tied at both socket and plug ends, protects cord from being pulled loose and stops fabric from fraying.
• Black wire connects to brass screw, white wire to nickel screw

Before making any changes to electrical fixtures and/or lamps:
• Disconnect plug/wire from the electrical source.
• Turning lamp off will not protect you from electric shock.
• If you are unsure how to safely proceed contact a licensed electrician.

I haven't used this cord to wire my antique floor lamp yet, but it looks great! Even better in person.

Good quality but more effort to work with

I am a total newbie when it comes to electrical wiring so I wasn't certain how to work with this cord. When I first cut it, the cloth covering started to un-fray into rather a messy wad. I then noticed that the two interior wires were covered in their own cloth sheathing -- there was this white material around each wire. So I first gingerly cut the white cloth from around each wire and then I cut the exterior gold cloth back, tidying up the messy wad. There is probably be a better way to deal with this cord and instructions would have helped (on the website at least). In the end, the look is very nice so it's worth the extra effort. (This extra effort is why I deducted one star.)

Good Stuff!
