Selecting Clip-on Lampshades
Easy to use
Clip-on Lamp Shades are great on smaller lamps which do not have a chimney or means of supporting a shade. No additional shade holder or finial is needed. Shade is built on a wire frame with a two ring, spring fastener mechanism which clips directly onto light bulb.
Standard clip-on lamp shades have 8" and 10" bottom fitters for use on dresser lamps, vanity lamps, buffet lamps, and candlestick lamps.
Clip-on lamp shades have a 2 wire looped fitter intended for standard light bulbs.
Shade fits snugly down onto light bulb with shade top being slightly above light bulb top.
Light bulb height affects the proportional relationship of clip on lamp shade to lamp base. The taller the light bulb the higher the shade will sit.
A small, narrow clip-on fitter is made for chandelier shades which use a torpedo shaped bulb. This small fitter is only used on very small shades.
