Step 3

Lamp cord wires are fairly malleable, so you can either use your fingers or needle-nose pliers to shape both ends of each wire in to the shape of a hook.

With the new replacement cord ready to go, remove the old one. This means you'll have to loosen -- and maybe completely disassemble -- the lamp's components.

There may be a fabric (often felt) covering the lamp base. You'll need to remove this. It's likely that a nut holds the lamp's components together near the base. Loosen the nut. At this point, all the lamp's components will become jiggly and loose, so if it's glass, be careful!
