はじめに

If you need a light stand for photos, this guide will show you how to take a standing lamp to convert a broken standing lamp by removing the lamp components. While I am using a common Mainstays lamp for this guide, there may be variations in lamps from different stores/brands. These are usually minor. It does not impact the guide, but may change how certain components are removed. This guide will also help you identify reusable components for other projects.

Read me: While this is not the best stand you can get and may require modificiation, these lamps are usually free or inexpensive for used ones. This can be advantageous if you are willing to disassemble one to eliminate redundant components.

Guide notes

  • Use common sense during the cord and socket removal procedure. Death or injury may occur if you make a mistake, as you are handing 120-240V AC!
  • Make sure you use a lamp that you are certain you do not plan on reassembling or use a damaged one. Reversal may be impractical if modifications are made.
  • If possible, use a lamp with a dangerous problem like a busted socket guard cover, as the one in this guide had a problem with. This part was cracked and supported with electrical tape until it was pulled out of service. These are the best candidate for this type of project, as these parts can be difficult to find without a donor or the parts exceed the cost of a new lamp.
  • While the plastic parts on many of these lamps may not be reusable (either due to assembly technique or uniqueness) in every situation, the cord and socket can be easily reused. Save these for another project if they are in good condition.
  • DO NOT keep any part that looks damaged. Discard these parts for safety reasons.

パーツ

  1. Before working on the lamp, it MUST be unplugged. Unplug the lamp before disassembly.

  2. If the bulb is worth keeping, this can be reused.
    • If the bulb is worth keeping, this can be reused.

    • If your lamp has a lightbulb installed, remove it now.

    • Most lamps will be similar, but be prepared for variations.

    • Start by removing the socket holder. This needs to be removed before the socket.

    • Remove the switch handle from your lamp. This does not need to be removed on all lamps, but recommended to avoid complications.

    • Depending on if your lamp uses a press or screw socket, this may not be reusable.

    • After removing the plastic cover and switch, remove the bulb socket. You will need different tools for screw and push wire sockets.

    • Discard or recycle any components you do not want to reuse.

    • If this cord is in good shape, it can be reused.

    • After removing the old lamp components, remove the power cord.

    • After gutting the lamp, test fit the lamp you want to use and make any modifications (as desired or needed). What you do beyond this step (Ex: Shortening the lamp) is up to you.
