Paper Insulator for Standard Keyless Sockets
An insulator is a molded paper sleeve that snugly fits between your lamp socket (and the live wires connected to it) and the metal socket sleeve or Candle Cover on the outside. Over time, and with repeated use, these paper insulators can become dried out and brittle, causing the live wires inside to become dangerously close to the metal sleeve or Candle Cover on the outside. This condition can cause an electrical shock, a blown out socket or worse.
This Paper Insulator is for a Standard Keyless (no turn knob) Socket, and is intended to be used as a replacement for worn or missing insulators for standard (medium-size) keyless sockets. (1 3/32" inside diameter)
