Wow $19 is cheap for a F40 strip light! Perfect fixtures if you have some HPF magnetic ballasts to stick in. The ones they come with aren't even "real" ballasts have the time.

Free (and vintage) would be best of all. Fortunately I haven't come across any vintage fluorescents at low prices locally, since I would get them and I don't have the room lol.

Its great that striplights are still available but i really dislike those poor quality sockets that they put in them nowadays. Why do they even do that? The older style sockets did just fine and were common as dirt

Yeah newer sockets are junk, though there are some older doughnut-style sockets that damage the pins on some fluorescent lamps if removed/inserted too many times. I like the Y-slot sockets since they won't hold a lamp if the pins aren't inserted correctly (no arcing with instant start T8s if the pins aren't in all the way, since the lamp will drop out) but Y-slot fixtures are more likely to loose their lamps if accidentally bumped hard enough. Not something that will happen with doughnut sockets unless they're spaced too far apart. Really the plunger sockets (be it bi-pin, single pin, or recessed double contact) are the best but even those the springs can wear out over time. I've only ever seen it happen with newer slimline sockets though, with the triangle shape. The older tombstone shaped slimline sockets I've never seen it happen to.

The Y sockets are neat, sadly I don't come across those all that much. Just usually the typical levition sockets with the contact blades and the 2 little guide nubs in the socket holes. Hopefully they are still made too , I need to buy alot more of the elongated ones

Those you mentioned are the doughnut sockets. Those seem to be a lot more common. I usually see the Y-slot ones in vintage fixtures or undercabinet lights. I've seen some fixtures use u-bend sockets too, where the lamps just push right in with no turning. I feel like the tubes would fall out easily. I actually have a bunch of u-bend lamp sockets from when I saved all those Advance and Howard T8 ballasts. I'm going to test them out and perhaps use them for F32T8s if they hold well enough.

Great display.

Thanks Mike for the pictures of those fluorescent sockets I have seen all four types but I did not know the unofficial (I assume that is unofficial and not a brand name or other term that the manufacturer uses) term for the different types.

I have to say the Y-Slot is my favorite type as not a lot of fixtures use that type. That Sim-kar light I found a few years ago has that type of socket although the doughnut is the more common of the two types
