the original cord was damaged by a house pet. i bought the replacement cord
about three months ago. hubby is too busy and i don't want to nag him. can
some one tell me how or point me in the right direction (ON THE NET) where i
can find a how to on this?
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
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
Right on Barc. Where's the pics ya know-it-all fuck? One search on my

brains") know that the original poster even knows about Google?
He don't. You don't. Shit fer brains.
