Wiring a Plastic BC Lampholder

This is a quick step-by-step guide on wiring a plastic BC lampholder.

Step 1: Seperate the lampholder into its 2 main components, the Cap and the the Connection Unit.


Step 2: Take the base (cap) of the lampholder and screw it onto the fixing point.

Next, feed the cable through the hole carefully, ensuring not to damage it as you push/pull it through.

Make sure you leave this loose so you can adjust the length when on step 4.


Step 3: Slide the cord grip down the cable (roughly half an inch from the top). This will prevent the cable from being pulled out the lampholder by accident.


Step 4: Wire the cable into the connection unit of the lampholder. This is done by firstly loosening the screws in the connection unit, then inserting the cable ends into the connection points, it does not matter which way around the Live (Brown) and Neutral (Blue) go. Lastly, retighten the screws so the cable is securely in place, as shown in the image below.


If in any doubt please seek professional advice.



Step 5: Finally, screw the connection unit and the base of the lampholder together.


This completes the wiring of a Plastic BC Lampholder.
