Last week a customer contacted us with a problem he was experiencing whilst restoring his antique chandeliers. His existing candle tubes were tall and he wished to retain the height but he was uncertain as to which lamp holders he should purchase as he could not find one with the appropriate height. After taking all the details from him we were able to recommend our SES E14 lamp holder with stem leg in 100mm together with additional components that would allow this to become an adjustable height lamp holder with a height range, in his case, of up to 180mm.
Following his enquiry, and having had similar enquiries in the past we added 3 sizes of adjustable SES E14 lamp holder kits giving a choice of 125mm up to 180mm for use with taller candle tubes.
If you have visited our lamp holder sections on our website you may have looked at our push in terminal lamp holders and wondered how to wire this should you purchase them.
We have a few “How To” videos on our website and one of these feature wiring push in terminal lamp holders; please find the link to our restoration page on our website which includes the video relating to wiring push in terminal lamp holders.
Everyone has a preference to which type of light bulb they use but sometimes with a wide array of choice it can get frustrating knowing which bulb and lamp holder are compatible so we thought we would give you a quick reminder.
On our website we sell lamp holders and bulbs in both Edison Screw and Bayonet cap styles
If you prefer bayonet cap bulbs you require either the BC B22 (large bulb) or SBC B15 (small bulb)
Don’t forget if you wish to use your lamp holder with a light shade you will need the threaded skirt type lamp holder with shade rings and it is suggested that you have a cord grip to keep the electric cable in place (some lampholders have these built in or you can purchase these individually)
Following the recent Brexit vote and a telephone conversation today with one of our European customers we would like to assure all our European and International customers, new and old, that at King’s Chandelier Services Ltd we continue to sell overseas and are happy to do so.
If you have any questions or queries please do not hesitate to contact us by telephone or email.
