If you have visited our lamp holder sections on our website you may have looked at our push in terminal lamp holders and wondered how to wire this should you purchase them.
We have a few “How To” videos on our website and one of these feature wiring push in terminal lamp holders; please find the link to our restoration page on our website which includes the video relating to wiring push in terminal lamp holders.
With the passing of the Christmas season you may be looking at your chandelier and thinking it is looking a little tired and sorry for it’s self. Refurbishing your chandelier does not need to be expensive as it is not a full restoration, just a little TLC.
If you didn’t get a chance to clean your chandelier in the lead up to the festive season this can instantly transform the chandelier. It also gives you a chance to check over the chandelier to make sure that all the crystals are in place and undamaged; you will also be able to see any that need re-pinning.
Replacing the odd crystal does not need to be expensive, we do not have a minimum order value on our website and our chandelier pins are available in small cost effective packs as well as larger quantities for a full chandelier restoration. Dependant on the chandelier crystals and buttons that you are looking for you will find in both our antique and modern chandelier parts that some are available in pack sizes as well as singles.
Whilst cleaning your chandelier you can check to see if any of the candle tubes need replacing or you may wish to change the style and colour of your candle tubes to revitalise the look of your chandelier – again you do not need to place a minimum order our candle tubes are available in singles as well.
Of course when cleaning your chandelier check your bulbs are all working correctly.
REMEMBER when cleaning your chandelier ensure the electrical supply is switched off, do not expose the electrics to liquids and move yourself and your ladder around the chandelier do not turn the chandelier to you – you may unscrew the fixings.

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.
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.
