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. This lamp is a common style and should cover 99% of them but there may be minor variations. This will not impact the guide, but this is something to keep in mind. This guide will also help you identify reusable components for other projects.

Read me: While this is not the best stand you can get as modifications may be required, these lamps are cheap or even free because they are so common and inexpensive. This can be advantageous if you are willing to disassemble one to eliminate the 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 is missing parts that cannot be readily purchased. Post disassembly reversal may be impractical, especially if you used a broken lamp that needed other parts and made modifications.
  • 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. The one I used in this guide cracked and was supported with electrical tape until it was pulled out of service due to redundancy. These are the best candidate for this type of project, as they cannot be used without major repairs and the parts cost often exceeds the entire lamp.
  • While the plastic parts on many of these lamps may not (easily) 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. Consider these parts garbage for good measure.

부품

  2. If your lamp has a lightbulb installed, remove it before modifying the lamp.
    • If your lamp has a lightbulb installed, remove it before modifying the lamp.

    • It may be worth keeping the bulb if it works. If you do not want it or it is dead, discard or recycle it.

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

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

    • Remove the switch handle from your lamp. This does not need to be removed in every scenario, but removal is recommended to avoid disassembly problems.

    • 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. Depending on if your socket is screw or press fit, you will need different tools.

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

    • This cord is not garbage and 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.
