Kit 1 Installation Guide

This is to show you a step by step guide on how to install Kit 1.

In this guide I have used all parts that you get from Kit 1 and installing them onto a wooden block that I have already pre-drilled a hole in.


Step 1: Feed the cable cord set through your light fitting ensuring not to damage it as you push/pull it through. Ensure you leave this loose so you can adjust the length when on step 3.

Next, place the backplate over the cable and fix it down onto your wooden lamp using the supplied screws, then place the cover over the top.



Step 2: Separate the lampholder into its 3 pieces by unscrewing the shade ring and lock ring, leaving you with the cap, the connection unit and the skirt. Then take the cap of the lampholder and screw it onto the thread of the backplate.



Step 3: Using a pair of pliers, double over the ends of the cable.

Next, wire the cable into the connection unit of the lampholder. This is done by firstly loosening the screws in the connection unit, then inserting the cable ends into the connection points, ensuring the Earth (Green/Yellow) is in the middle connection. It does not matter which way around the Live (Brown) and Neutral (Blue) go. Lastly, retighten the screws so the cable is securely in place, as shown in the image below.


If in any doubt please seek professional advice.



Step 4: Carefully push the connection unit into the cap of the lampholder and place the top section (the skirt) onto the lampholder, ensuring the indents line up.

Finally, screw the lock ring and shade ring onto the lampholder.

Note: The copper tag is to sit over the indent on the lampholder so it is slightly visible.



Step 5: Ensure you use the cord grip on the bottom of the light fitting by putting it across the cable and using the screws supplied to fix it into position, this will ensure the cable cannot be pulled out by accident.


This now completes the installation of Kit 1.

Below you will find all the CE certifications for all the parts in our Kit 1, these are required for trading standard or if you're planning on selling the lamps on.
