Arco manufactures designer lamps that require little floor space and configure to allow direct downward lighting. The interchangeable channels allow lighting to raise high from the base and arch down nearby or have a moderate rise with a downward arch further from the base. This type of modern lighting enables illumination over chairs or couches in dim corners for reading.


Step 1

Slide the metal rod into the slot in the lamp base. Push the connector handle into the round hole in the top left corner of the base.

Step 2

Insert the base screw through the hole in the metal rod and base. Turn the screw clockwise to tighten the parts together.


Step 3

Pull the wiring through the metal rod and thread the wire guide onto the wiring from the top.

Step 4

Thread the large channel of the lamp onto the wire from the top loose end of wire. Press the channel down into the metal rod. The electrical wiring will sit in the lower channel of the large channel. Thread the wiring through the small and medium channels while pulling the loose end of the wire through the top.


Step 5

Turn the lamp socket screw counterclockwise to loosen it. Press the retention clip in, continue unscrewing the socket from the nipple and pull it straight off. The screws for attaching the lamp wiring are now visible.

Step 6

Attach the smooth wire to the brass screw in a clockwise direction and tighten the screw clockwise. Attach the wire with ridges around the silver screw clockwise and tighten the screw clockwise.


Step 7

Snap the socket onto the nipple. The retention clip will hold it in place. Tighten the socket screw clockwise and place a bulb in the lamp.

Step 8

Slide the deflector over the end of the channel. Place the lamp sleeve over the deflector and press the outer grid onto the sleeve.


The large channel installs on the base first for stability.

The additional medium and small channels can interchange to modify the lamp height and arch for a specific area.
