Step 5: Wiring the Lamp

Picture of Wiring the Lamp

Before Inserting the cord into the bottom of the lamp you will need to prep the cable. This means stripping off about an inch of the outer jacket and then strip off a small section of the two inner wires. Make sure to twist the ends of the wire so that the strands don't fray and get everywhere. Thread the cable through the bottom of the base and then attach the wires to the screw terminals on the bottom of the lamp base. With the wires connected to the base you will now need to insert the bolts through the bottom of the base, put the base over them, and then tighten the nuts to hold the lamp base in place. Screw in a light bulb, plug it in, and you are done with your lamp.
