Plumbing Pipe To Light Fitting Coupler 1/2″NPT To 1/8IPS. This component allows you to attach our existing 1/8IPS threaded entry sockets to 1/2″ NPT plumbing pipe and hardware. These are suitable for connection to Bakelite and Brass E26 and E12 sockets. We can supply brass E26 sockets of a superior strength for this purpose that come with a length of brass allthread.
When you require a socket to be attached firmly so as not to come loose you should use a thread locker to secure the all thread brass nipple to the coupler. Mostly a socket will have a grub screw to make a locked connection to all thread. An example of this fixing is our Vintage Galvanised Nickel Wall Sconce Candle
Where you need to suspend a pendant via decorative cloth covered cable these couplers can be used to attach a brass cord grip. This component will ensure that the cable cannot be pulled from the pipe fitting components so as to make sure an electrical short can’t occur.
Note: 1/2″NPT pipe diameter is ~0.9″ OD.
Available in steel or flat black.
