Hi everybody!

I just made a pipe lamp using galvanized pipe and a basic light kit from the Depot.

I was curious as to what would be the safe way to attach the socket to the pipe.

Also, just wanted to make sure the project in general is safe. There are no loose wires or anything; no joining/soldering. It's just the lamp cord run through to underwriters knot and screwed in at the two connections. It looks good but don't want to be burning down the house either!

Ok so I can't post photos so for a description just think the lamp cord run through pipe and at the end is a reducer the size of the socket. The reducer is facing down so the light socket is just hanging out now and I wanted to see how to safely attach it. Hope that makes sense.

Thanks in advance.

Are you asking us if your home brew light fixture is safe?

Ask your local AHJ, pay them money and if it is safe, they'll give you a sticker.
