Transitional Table Lamps | Have you ever needed to pull your table lamp apart, perhaps to switch a globe or a damaged socket, only to discover that you’ve no idea how you can put it together again again? Whilst they may look terribly complicated, these types of lamps can in fact be quite easy to piece together again.
Step 1: Place the base onto a designated work surface followed by the body; the base often comes with a hole at the heart, which can be for that power cord to travel beyond, whilst the body needs to have a hole at either end.
Step 2: Slide the rod to the top hole of the body, around underneath hole and into the base. Put a washer on the end with the rod and screw into place. Then, thread the cord to the bottom with the rod and out from the top. Screw in the neck (if the table lamp has one) as well as the harp.
Step 3: Place the socket cap over underneath with the harp and screw to the rod, ensuring it does not take correct way up. Wrap the ‘hot’ wire across the gold screw on the socket and wrap the ‘neutral’ wire across the silver screw.
Step 4: Place the socket shell on the bulb socket, ensuring that you tuck the cords inside. Squeeze the ends with the harp and slide them to the bottom with the shell, then screw a bulb in.

When putting your table lamp together, it is important to keep in mind that there might be additional and even less steps depending on the type. If you become stuck when attemping to place your lamp together again, you must speak to a lighting specialist and even the manufacturer to ask for their advice.
