To create a lamp you only need a few items: lamp base, lamp shade, and a Make-a-Lamp kit. The kit contains the socket, harp, harp saddle, threaded rods, finial, washers and nut. A few required hand tools include: flat head screwdriver and pliers.
As the included instructions show, the lamp cord is pushed up the lamp body and attached to the socket interior with a UL Knot.
In just a few minutes, the lamp is complete and ready to enjoy.
