Product details

Switched Brass BC Lampholder

  • Smart brass bayonet cap
  • The body is joined by a solid brass threaded collar
  • The base includes a screw terminal for an earth wire

Smart brass bayonet cap (BC) lampholder with ½" threaded base. The body is joined by a solid brass threaded collar and another threaded ring is provided for securing a lampshade. The base includes a screw terminal for an earth wire. This lampholder must be earthed, therefore a 3-core mains cable is required. Maximum rating 250W, complies with BS5042-T2.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Jammed It might be good but I had to take mine back as the main housing wouldn't unscrew. Also when I bought it in the store it was in a bag which meant you could not see the 'external' earth connection, which I don't like. It's not cheap either

Listing gives a thread size which is clearly wrong and it should read 1/2" but what type of thread? Whitworth brass or what?

Asked by: Tim 62
The Listing should read 1/2" as you say, this will be updated over night and I can confirm that it conforms to BSW standard (Whitworth).

I am unsure whether this is a compatible replacement.  How can I tell if metric or BC lampholder is fitted on my lamp?

Asked by: Andy10
The easiest way to check the type of lampholder you have would be to look at the fitting of the existing bulbs. This should show the fitting type, for this lampholder it should be a B22 size fitting. However, provided it is fitted by a competent electrician, this can act as a replacement for any mains powered lampholder using 3-core mains cable.

The base of this lampholder is threaded, but do you also sell a suitable threaded mount to use with it?

I am looking for a brass lampholder as in "Brass BC Lampholders" in your stock database but I require a 3/8 inch threaded base opposed to the 1/2 inch that you describe. Do you have these in stock or can you advise an alternative source or even a solution such as a thread converter?
Asked by: Anonymous
Unfortunately we don't stock anything that would allow you to do this.

I am looking for a lampholder which fits onto a 1/2" diameter screw thread. The description says "12 threaded". Does this really mean 1/2"?

misprint - 1/2" thread base
