Fabric Cord Covers. . . just wondering. . .

Any concerns that they could be a safety/fire hazard (i.e. combustible material on the plug in the outlet)??

I wouldn't cover the outlet or the plug...just the cord itself. The fabric should contact only the insulation on the cord and no wires or anything electrical.

You can also take your lamps to a shop and have them retired with a fabric covered cord like an old fashioned cord but up to today's UL electrical standards. The color choices are endless. I like the red and white cords!

Thank you! I am taking my lamps in for a "cord transplant" a few at a time.

thanks everyone!! The "refitted" cords are pretty and will probably do some of those, but for some places, I prefer the fuller look of the ruched/gathered cover. Annie, will make sure that it doesn't touch the plug!! Again, thanks all!!
