Uttermost floor lamps are a good way to light up a living room, as they are worth by themselves and do not need table space. As standing lamps get older, they can become unstable. If hit, a staggering floor lamp could fall and break. An unbalanced floor lamp will also look crooked and produce an inclined beam of light. You can stretch the floor lamp to prevent it from wobbling. Whether it’s loose in the middle of the unit or the base, tighten on your own.
Determine where your lamp is loose. Grasp the lamp at several points, and shake gently to find where it is loose. Squeeze the middle of the floor lamp, if you find it loose in this area. Floor lamps use tubes that are screwed together to be high enough to illuminate the entire room. Grasp the tube just below the loose part with your left hand. Hold the tube over it with your right hand. Holding the bottom tube steady, turn the top tube clockwise to tighten it.
Advice about the unit if you have found that your floor lamp is loose in the base. Dump it so you have access to the bottom of the stand. Be careful not to damage the shade or break the bulb. Locate the pin in the center of the bottom of the bracket. It is placed directly on the other side of the tubes that lead to the lampshade. Tighten the base bolt of the lamp. Depending on your floor lamp, tighten it, either with a socket wrench or a Phillips head screwdriver. Turn the bolt clockwise until it feels tight. Turn the table lamp upright.
