Ivalite Adjustment or fix

Post by Tmalko » Sat Jan 30, 2021 6:54 am

In the classic Ivalite, Any suggestions on how to tighten the lamp to support as shown in the photo. It moves with the knob but is too loose to stand straight up. Thanks.

You need to screw the neck back in.

Thanks, I will double check but I didn’t see any threads at that interface, that’s where it swivels and rotates.

It turned out that the threads were intact but worn down so they no longer engaged with the base threads. I purchased a used Ivalite on eBay and took it apart and used the neck to replace the threaded neck. It threaded in nicely and it was interesting to see that you can disassemble the neck and base interface effectively. Success. See pics.
