For an upcoming shoot I want to mount several Kino's (bare bulbs) on a wall and use them as practicals. What wiring and sockets would I need for this?
You'd need the Kino ballast, head feaders, etc. - if these are 4' tubes, you can use the stuff from a 4' single bank Kino minus the fixture, just the end caps, harness wires, cables, etc. You still need to be going to a Kino ballast.

I should be more specific:
I'm renting several 4bank Kino and Single Tube units, with ballast and cables. I want to mount 8 bulbs all around the walls of a small laboratory. The bulbs will be positioned horizontally and spaced apart so I will need more slack in the breakouts than the head cable has to offer. On a shoot I worked the gaffer did something like this by running electric cable out of the feeder cables and then used some sort of fluorescent bulb "quick on" or "add a tap" to power the bulbs. I don't know the names of them and I can't find anything on filmtools or other cine websites when I dig around the electrical sections.
