Lamp Shade Fitter Choices
See details of each fitter below
#1 - Washer
#1 Washer: This is the most common lamp shade fitter. If your lamp uses a harp (see picture), you will need a washer fitter.
NEW!!! Now available in Nickel Finish as well as the traditional Brass Finish
#2 - Regular Clip
Regular Clip: This is the
fitter you need if your light bulb is a standard household bulb as shown in the
picture above. Smaller lamps sometimes require a candle
bulb and proper clip, shown below.
#3 Candle - Clip
#3 Candle Clip: This is the fitter you need if your light bulb is the pointed bulb as shown in the picture above. These shades are normally smaller than the shade that fits on a standard bulb, shown below.
#4 - Uno
#4 Uno: This is the fitter you need if your light bulb hangs down from a floor lamp or table lamp and the socket has threads on the outside of the metal shelled lamp socket. Brass finish only. See this link for more information:
#5 - Chimney Ring
#5 Chimney Ring: This is the fitter
you need if you are using a lampshade that sets directly on a lamp chimney.
Note: Additional information we need to provide a lampshade with the chimney ring fitter is the diameter of the ring itself. The smaller the ring the higher the shade will sit on the chimney.
(See picture at left to see the extra measurement that is needed)
#6 - Slip Washer
#6 Slip Washer: This is a fitter that is not as commonly used. This fitter is designed to slip through a loosened assembly, most typically on hanging or "swag" lamps. The assembly is tightened with the shade in place. Designed to add or remove the lampshade without unwiring the unit.
#7 - Reflector Fitter
#7 Reflector Fitter: This fitter is designed with lamps that use a, I.E.S. Reflector. The reflectors are commonly 6", 8" or 10". The 10" reflector is used as the example in the pictures above. The shade fitter is made with notches that allow the lampshade to rest on the glass reflector without sliding around. Some table lamps such as lamps made by Stiffel, Rembrandt and others use a reflector and many floor lamps such as seen in the picture examples. We need to know the size of your reflector to provide the correct fit for your lamp. We do sell the replacement reflectors if yours is missing or broken. See
