Step 3 Take the lamp apart

Most floor lamps are simply threaded pipe screwed together, so start by unscrewing the base. Twist the pole to loosen it from the base and pull out the wires. Unscrew the screw on the terminals and remove the wires.




Step 4 Use new wires to replace the old wires

Thread the new wire through the hole in the base of the lamp and push the wire upwards. Screw the poles back together, and thread the new wires through the pole until the wires appear above the lamp pole. (Before you replace the wires, you need to measure the length of the wire. Ensure you have enough extra length for the plug end)
