Basically good but seriously flawed
on 8 February 2014
The lamp arrived on time and was well packaged. What should have been very simple assembly of three parts was in truth a nightmare. The column with the wires inside pushes into the base and is secured with a small screw. The same attachment is used for the flexible head. What should have taken 10 minutes left me struggling for nearly an hour. I am reasonably fit and strong, but it proved impossible to push the column far enough into the base socket to align the screw with the screw hole. Finally I gave up and hammered it into position, with a piece of wood used to protect the end of the column.
An otherwise well designed and effective lamp was spoiled by a badly made assembly method. If you don't want to risk a heart attack, reach for the hammer at the start.
