How to use clip-on lampshades

Using clip-on lampshades is a simple and convenient way to update the look of your lamp without the need for any additional tools or hardware. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to use clip-on lampshades:

Choose the right lampshade: Ensure that you have a clip-on lampshade that is compatible with your lamp. Clip-on lampshades have built-in clips that attach directly onto the light bulb. Make sure the lampshade’s clips are the correct size and shape to fit securely onto your bulb.

Clip-on lampshades fit a E14, B22 & E27 candle bulbs/globes.

Turn off and unplug the lamp: Before attaching or removing a lampshade, always turn off the lamp and unplug it from the power source to ensure your safety.

Remove the existing lampshade (if applicable): If your lamp already has a lampshade attached, carefully lift it off or unscrew it from the lamp base. Set it aside for now.

  1. Position the clip-on lampshade: Take the clip-on lampshade and hold it with the clips facing downward. Position the shade over the bulb, aligning the clips with the bulb’s base. Ensure that the clips are securely positioned around the bulb.

  2. Clip the lampshade onto the bulb: Gently press the clips together or squeeze them, allowing them to securely attach to the bulb’s base. Make sure the lampshade is straight and evenly aligned.

  3. Adjust the position: If necessary, adjust the position of the lampshade to ensure it is level and properly centered. You can carefully rotate or tilt the shade until you achieve the desired position.

  4. Plug in and turn on the lamp: Once the clip-on lampshade is securely attached, plug in the lamp and turn it on to enjoy the updated look of your lamp with the new lampshade.

Note: When using clip-on lampshades, it’s important to choose bulbs that do not exceed the recommended wattage for the shade to prevent overheating and potential hazards. Always follow the manufacturer’s guidelines for lampshade compatibility and safety precautions.

That’s it! You’ve successfully installed a clip-on lampshade onto your lamp. Enjoy the new look and ambiance it brings to your space.
