Paper Insulator for Turn-Knob Electric 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.
These Long Paper Insulators are for Turn-Knob (one slot) Socket to fit standard (medium-size) Electric sockets. One-slot insulators are intended to be used as a replacement for worn or missing insulators with a regular turn key style socket. They are a 1 1/16" top inside diameter, 1 1/8" base inside diameter and are 2" height.
