Description:

For use with infrared heat bulbs. The heavy-duty vinyl clamp is a nice feature--it can help keep the lamp where you want it. Because the heat bulbs exceed 400 degrees, it's very important that you safely secure them! Additional details:
  • Features insulated porcelain sockets, heavy gauge aluminum reflectors and hang-up hooks
  • Sturdy clamp with vinyl coated grips hold lamp in place
  • Bulb guards that snap on the reflector to help prevent anything from touching the hot bulb surface.
  • Two-conductor, polarized male plugs and a durable, 6' vinyl cord
  • 10-1/2" reflection diameter
  • Not UL Listed
  • 18/2SJTW-A - 250 WATTS - 125 V

If you are sure you want to use infrared heat bulbs to heat your baby chicks, please also consider using our brooder stand to keep the lamp safely in place. And we must warn you that, while they are the most commonly used heating device for baby chicks, we can not recommend heat lamps for heating baby chicks or coops. Here's why:

  • Surface temps exceed 400 degrees.
  • People and children can burn themselves
  • Fires can (and do) happen. Heat lamps carry a risk of fire because coops and brooders are dusty places, and the bedding is flammable. Read about our own staffer's heat lamp-caused fire
  • They are not energy efficient, They cost $3-$5+ per week of continuous use more to run than the alternatives. 
  • Light-free heat sources allow chicks to sleep at night

So, what are those alternatives? The Brinsea EcoGlow, Sweeter Heater, or the Cozy Coop Heater. They use far less electricity and pose a far lower risk of catching fire, reaching no more than 185 degrees. (Many people claim there is no fire risk at all with these heaters). They are costlier, but in the long run you will save due to your lowered electricity bill.

All that said, if you feel infrared bulbs are the best choice for you, make sure to secure them safely with a heat lamp with clamp, and use a brooder stand, if your budget affords it.
