How to Change an OTT Light Bulb

Save

OTT brand lights are used widely by crafters, artists, seamstresses and other hobbyists. OTT light bulbs bring a superior quality of lighting to any project, because the bulbs give off a natural light that eases tension and strain on the eyes.

Changing the OTT Bulb in the OTT Floor Lamp

Turn off and unplug the lamp, then raise the light to its upright position so the entire lamp is aligned vertically.

Hold the light base and remove the tube light bulb by gently popping it free from the clip on the end opposite the connection socket.

Grip the bulb, as firmly as possible without crushing it, and begin pulling the bulb free from the connection socket. Gently wiggle the bulb from side to side to loosen it, and then pull it free from the connection clip.

Gently snap the replacement bulb (tube) into the holding clips at the opposite from the connection socket.

Align connection pins with the connection socket, and press bulb down into the connection socket. You'll hear a snapping sound that will indicate that the bulb is connected. Plug in the lamp and turn it on to make sure that the bulb works.

Changing the OTT Bulb in the OTT Wing Shade Lamp

Turn off and unplug the Wing Shade Lamp. Hold the base of the housing to stabilize the lamp.

Align the notches on the shade and housing by rotating the shade. Once notches are aligned, grab the end of the shade and pull out to remove it from the housing.

Grip the tube light bulb gently yet firmly and pull it out of the socket.

Align the replacement bulb with the socket pins and push the bulb on to the pins until you hear a clicking sound. This indicates that the bulb has been installed properly.

Replace the shade by sliding it over the bulb. Align the notches, snap in to place and rotate the shade to its normal position. Plug in the lamp and use.

Changing the OTT Bulb in an OTT Task Lamp

Unplug the Task Lamp and place it on a sturdy surface while changing the tube light bulb.

Flip the shade up and, while firmly grabbing the housing, wiggle the shade from side to side while pulling away from the housing. Set the shade aside.

Grasp the tube firmly and pull it out to remove it from the connection socket.

Replace the tube light bulb by aligning the connection end with the connection socket. Push the tube in gently, until you hear a snapping sound. This indicates that the bulb has been installed properly.

Replace the shade by sliding the open end over the tube and snapping it back into place on the housing. Plug in the lamp and use as needed.
