Vintage floor lamps are a great way to light up a living room, as they stand on their own and do not need table space. As floor lamps get older, they can become wobbly. If bumps, a wobbling floor lamp can fall over and break. An unbalanced floor lamp will also look oblique and produce an inclined beam of light. You can tighten your floor lamp so that it wobbles. Whether it is loose in the middle of the unit or from the base, tighten it on your own
.Determine where your lamp is loose. Grasp the lamp in different places, and shake it gently to find when it is loose. Tighten the middle of the floor lamps if you find it loose in this area. Vintage floor lamps use pipes that are screwed together to make it long enough to light throughout the room. Grasp the hose just below the loose part with your left hand. Grasp the tube above it with your right hand. Hold the lower tube firmly, turning the upper tube clockwise to tighten it. Tips the unit if you have discovered that your floor lamp is loose at the base.
Tip it over so you have access to the bottom of the stand. Be careful not to shade or break the bulb. Locate the bolt in the middle of the bottom of the stand. It will be placed directly on the other side of the tubes leading up to the lampshade. Tighten the bolt the lamp base. Depending on your vintage floor lamps, tighten it with either a socket wrench or a Phillips screwdriver. Turn the screw clockwise until it feels tense. Turn upright table lamp.
