Do you know the difference between a 3 way and a 3-terminal lamp socket? Don’t worry; your “helpful” hardware person probably doesn’t know the difference either. That’s because most hardware stores don’t carry a 3-terminal socket. That’s the type of socket that is necessary to rewire a Gone-With-The-Wind style lamp so that the top and bottom lights work together or independently. We not only carry the 3 terminal sockets but also provide all of the diagrams and instructions to complete this type of DIY lamp project.
Do you have a vintage 3 arm floor lamp with an oversized porcelain Mogul socket? Don’t waste your time at your local hardware store trying to find a porcelain Mogul socket. They don’t sell them. However, we carry the Mogul socket and all of the other electrical components with complete diagrams and instructions to do this type of DIY lamp project with confidence.
Do It Yourself Lamp Rewiring
Do you have a cherished lamp in the attic or sitting in a closet because you are a little concerned about the safety of its wiring? If it is an older lamp, your concerns are valid. Older or “vintage” lamps that have not been rewired unfortunately, still have the original old cords and sockets. Lamps with old and worn out electrical components are not safe.
However, taking care of this problem is easier than you might think. In fact, in most cases basic lamp rewiring is simply connecting two wires to two screws. The good news is that because of the specific lamp parts and instructions that we put in each of our lamp rewiring kits, your DIY lamp project is now easier than ever. We provide everything that you need to make your lamp safe and functional once again. Once you have the right tools to get the job done, the rest of the process is simple. And, you can enjoy your lamp even more knowing you were able to do it yourself.
