3 Terminal Sockets3 Terminal sockets are often confused with 3 way sockets but work completely different. They are designed to run an additional circuit; mostly used for another keyless socket. They are commonly found in 3 tier lamps or Gone-With-The_Wind style lamps. 3 terminal sockets have only one contact with the bulb.
