E 12 SIZE  Phenolic plastic sockets: E136279 E12E (BLACK)
(Designed for light string with piercing terminals)

What options might be available for a modified, custom-manufactured socket?
SEE THE EXAMPLE PICTURE BELOW (this appears to use a machine-flattened metal post to secure the socket cap)
Custom sockets could offer a number of benefits:
-Offering more efficient and cost-effective manufacturing.
-More securely fastened to wire.
-Potential to add a metal clip to side of socket

(2020 cord set, pictured above, used a one-piece socket, fastened with a quarter-twist motion)

STAR TREE-TOPPER

Composed of 2 halves of the same stamped metal star shape, bolted or riveted together around a simple 5 socket set of E 12 sockets.
(more specific measurements for this socket set to be submitted soon)
Our preference is for this to be manufactured from .3 mm sheet metal polished steel,
but could be made from chrome-finish vacuum-formed plastic because of the lack of heat from the LED bulbs.

10.5 cm lead with U.S. 2-prong polarized fused plug.

No light bulbs included, or includes 5 pack of your choice.
