The TriCut installation pliers electric do the work of three tools. These flawlessly manufactured installation pliers are the optimum helper for working with cables as they combine the three most important tools in one: diagonal cutters, skinning pliers and stripping pliers. The specially angled plier head ensures that cables are stripped and skinned lengthwise along the cable and pliers, using an ergonomic approach which saves users from applying excessive force.
The TriCut thus offers a decisive advantage over other pliers, especially in confined spaces such as junction and distribution boxes. The TriCut diagonal cutters are able to cut not just cables but also hard wires or even chains. The extra wide back of the handle with integrated soft and hard zones and curved handle ends prevent fingers from slipping. Individually tested to international IEC standard 60900, these pliers guarantee uncompromising safety, enabling users to work safely on live parts up to 1,000 V AC.
What's important when choosing a suitable light bulb?
The type of light bulb is mostly end user choice however LED and CFL offer energy savings, for example: a 5W LED Bulb is equal to approximately a 40/45W Incandescent Bulb. LED is particularly useful where a light fitting requires a very low maximum wattage bulb. We recommend LED Light Bulbs for all applications and any light fixture with a removable light bulb is suitable for an LED Type Light Bulb.
Have a look at the most popular light bulb shapes, some shapes are purely for cosmetic purpose whilst others are shaped to fit within a lampshade:

At ideas4lighting we import light fittings from around the world including European designs which are suitable for use in the US but use a different range of cap types specific to Europe, for this reason we don't stock light bulbs but we recommend you purchase your light bulbs from Amazon.
Below we have outlined the EU Base Caps and the recommended solution for use in the US:
When purchasing a light bulb please ensure you purchase for the American Voltage (110V-120V).
