A cord set is a length of wire with a plug on one end and the other end prepared to be wired to a lamp or small appliance. (If you would also like a socket attached to the wire, please see our pendant products.)
This cord set selection allows you to choose from any of our 3-conductor 16-gauge overbraid cords fitted with any of our 2- or 3-prong plugs. If you choose a 2-prong plug, we will clip the ground wire on both ends of the cord set, effectively making the wire a 2-conductor wire. All of the plugs listed that do not start with 3-prong are 2-prong.
You also have the option of adding any of our cord switches which fit this wire. If you do choose to add a switch, a separate product will appear in your cart to account for the switch added. If you remove this installed-switch product from your cart, your cord set will be made without a switch.
The cord set lengths available are 6, 8, 10, 12, and 16 feet. If you would like a length not offered in the Length options, add the number of feet you would like added to the length you chose. For example, if you would like a 7 foot cord set, choose 6 feet as the length and then chose 1 foot in the Additional Wire Length box. If you want one of the standard lengths, just ignore the Additional Wire Length option. If you do choose to add additional wire, a separate product will appear in your cart to account for the additional wire. If you remove this additional-wire product from your cart, your cord set will be made without any additional length.
PLEASE NOTE: If the quantity is set higher than one when you click on "Add To Cart", you will get that many of the same configuration of cord set. If you want one or more of a different combination of length/wire/plug/switch, you will have to set those options again and then set the quantity and click on "Add To Cart" for the new cord set configuration. If you are confused about how to get what you want, please don't hesitate to give us a call at the number at the bottom of the page.
IMPORTANT: Cord sets are custom-made for each order. They cannot be returned, removed from the order, or the quantity reduced once we have started making them up.
CHOOSING THE WIRE AND PLUG FOR YOUR CORD SET
It would probably help to have an idea of which wire and which plug you would like before you choose your cord set product, so we recommend looking through the overbraid and the plugs prior to choosing your cord set.
Also, if the wire or plug you choose is out of stock, we will try our best to remove the option from the drop-down menu. If there is any issue with an out of stock item we will call or email to provide a lead time or inquire about a substitution.
If you choose a rectangular plug or any of the button plugs, there is no room in the plug for an underwriter's knot. The knot helps keep the wires connected to the plug even with some tension applied to the plug (but please never yank on the wire to unplug the plug). We will make an underwriter's knot in the other plugs.
TIME UNTIL SHIPMENT
We will assemble your cord sets as soon as we can, but please allow several days for us to do the assembly. We will hold your entire order until all the cord sets ordered are ready to ship.
