Black w/ White X Pattern Cloth Covered Cord - Conway Electric | The Conway Electric Store

Black w/ White X 18-Gauge Cloth-Covered Round Pulley Cord $1/ft (300V AC max; Not for Use As Extension Cord)

Black with White X pattern braided lighting cord.

We believe our wire is the highest quality cloth covered wire available anywhere. We're the only cloth-covered wire provider with pending patents on the braiding designs.

Our cloth covered cord is round pulley cord that hangs straighter, bends more evenly and strips faster. It's more flexible than any other SVT wire we've found because it is custom made for us in the USA at a softness unmatched by any other supplier.

The cord is a versatile multi-use cord that adheres to UL specifications for braided wire. Our extra-soft durometer of less than 80 combined with 41-strand conductors achieve higher flexibility, better for a broader range of use. This cord is ideal for hanging lightweight pendants with minimal or no coil response and lays flatter for use with table and floor lamps. It's also easier to work with if you're wiring lamps or low-voltage appliances.**

Put simply, no other company offers a product made in America at this quality, and no other company offers custom colors and patterns.

Cord can be used as 2-conductor cord by clipping the green (ground) conductor and using the black (hot) and white (neutral) conductors connected to your wiring terminals. 

We recommend wrapping the weave after stripping using UL-approved adhesive electrical tape and only attaching the wire to electrical attachments that are UL approved.
