The light socket features a high heat ceramic socket and all high heat metal that won't melt like units with plastic sockets. It also features a wooden control handle that stays cool, and includes a built-in adjustable umbrella mount. The attached cord comes with an in-line switch, and the adjustable metal mount features a 5/8" receiver for light stands and an 8mm umbrella receptacle.
The light stand is air cushioned. Air cushioning gently lowers the light, preventing damage to light fixtures and fingers when section locks have not been properly tightened.
