Lamp Style Chord


I am taking down an old chandelier and installing a light that is using a lamp style chord. It is all black and neither wire is ribbed or smooth allowing me to determine which is positive and negative. How else can I tell?

Use a mutimeter set on resistance. Check for continuity between the center terminal of the lamp holder and the wire end. The one with continuity is the hot.
