You helpful sob.
Does the cord have a plug and if so, is the other end of the cord bared (two wires, one copper the other silver) or did you just buy a new length of zip cord?
Directions: Remove light bulb from lamp and unscrew the socket from the lamp. Note which portion of the old cord goes to the gold/yellow and which goes to the silver screw. Helps to tag one with a piece of electricians tape.
Thread the new cord where the old went and make a hook on each end of the bared wire of the new cord. Put the hook over the screw in the same direction in which the screw turns and tighten.
Screw the socket back into the lamp base.
If the cord you bought doesn't have a plug already installed you may need to buy a new plug - most home-owner friendly plugs have a plug body with an insert. Separate the two, thread the zip cord through the body of the plug, then insert the cord into the insert which has pressure prongs that will tap into the cord itself. Reseat the insert and voila, new lamp.
I hate to think how busy hubby must be, but it never hurts to learn a new, even minor, skill.
