Everyone has a preference to which type of light bulb they use but sometimes with a wide array of choice it can get frustrating knowing which bulb and lamp holder are compatible so we thought we would give you a quick reminder.
On our website we sell lamp holders and bulbs in both Edison Screw and Bayonet cap styles
If you prefer bayonet cap bulbs you require either the BC B22 (large bulb) or SBC B15 (small bulb)
Don’t forget if you wish to use your lamp holder with a light shade you will need the threaded skirt type lamp holder with shade rings and it is suggested that you have a cord grip to keep the electric cable in place (some lampholders have these built in or you can purchase these individually)
Following the recent Brexit vote and a telephone conversation today with one of our European customers we would like to assure all our European and International customers, new and old, that at King’s Chandelier Services Ltd we continue to sell overseas and are happy to do so.
If you have any questions or queries please do not hesitate to contact us by telephone or email.

Looking at our website you will be aware that at King’s Chandelier Services Ltd we specialise in the care and restoration of antique and vintage chandeliers, either undertaking the restoration on a clients behalf or supplying the vintage parts for a clients own chandelier restoration (a task that can become a labour of love rather than a daunting task) but you may not have realised that we stock a large comprehensive range of lighting accessories.
This video is a brief guide to help you chose the lamp holder that is suitable for your lighting fitting. An instruction video to help you unlock your lamp holder and showing how to change your lamp holder. Our website has a wide range of lamp holders in a variety of styles and finishes http://www.kingschandeliers.co.uk
If you have visited our website site, www.kingschandeliers.co.uk, you will have seen that we stock an extensive range of lamp holders.
With such a comprehensive range we get asked a lot questions and one of the most common we receive after purchase is this:-
“I have assembled my lampholder before wiring – how do I take it apart?”
If you have purchased your lampholder from King’s Chandelier Services Ltd the following instructions are relevant for :-
3 PART E27 & 3 PART E26 BAKERLIGHT LAMP HOLDERS IN GOLD, WHITE AND BLACK
E14 3 PART BAKERLIGHT LAMP HOLDERS
E14 & E27 NICKEL PLATED AND BRASS PLATED 3 PART LAMPHOLDERS
If you have assembled your lamp holder before wiring the safety mechanism will kick in and it will not be as easy to disassemble but it can be done – a bit fiddly and patience needed – but it is possible.
There is a small flap inside that acts as a ratchet, you need to push this down whilst at the same time turning the skirt anti-clockwise this releases the safety mechanism allowing you to disassemble the lampholder ready for wiring and installation.
Please remember these instructions are for items you have purchased from King’s Chandelier Services Ltd and may not be suitable for items purchased from third parties. If you are in any doubt please contact your supplier or electrician.
