Where to put the ECG on a light fixture socket that does not have a ground terminal.

Hello,

I have started a new hobby of refurbishing antique light fixtures. I am currently working with a three-wire, cloth-covered pendant wire (black, white, green), but the new socket (a vintage replica) does not have a place to connect the ECG - at least not one I can identify. So, I need to know where to put the ECG on the socket itself.

I'm trying to get a picture added of the socket in hopes someone can explain where I should put the ECG, but am getting an error message, but I'll keep trying - Got it (file sizes...).

Thank you,
Kim

You don't use it or you connect it to the metal frame of the fixture. It does not connect to the socket.
