How do I fix a leaning floor lamp?

My floor lamp leans and is difficult to turn on or off at times. I also feel like I am going to twist the knob off. Any suggestions on how to fix?

    Unfortunetly I can not see a picture from the lamp so I can not tell you what you can do to get it sorted out sorry

    I don't know how to fix the lamp but here is a tip that I used that is amazing. I have a floor lamp that was difficult to reach so I was shopping the Xmas clearance last year and found a remote for Xmas lights and thought why couldn't I use for my floor lamp?! It worked and is super easy and I never have to touch the switch! Even at full price, it was inexpensive. I found mine at Walgreens

    Since the lamp is not visable I can guess that it may be a pole lamp. If so, usually it is assembled by twisting each section together starting from the top. If so, you will need to basically disassemble the lamp from the bottom up. Then in the reverse order tighten each section until you get back to the bottom. At this point, unless the lamp pole is bent somewhere, the lamp should not be leaning anymore.

    Don't quite get what you mean by the lean. There are switches that are easy to install on a part of the cord that is more accessible.

    I'd pull the cover off the socket and screw the base of the socket in securely. Check to see if the wires that are supposed to be attached to the screws connecting the electrical are securely attached and tightened. It also usually has a set screw which may be loose, or missing. Always unplug first! Righty tighty, lefty Lucy. There usually is a nut on the bottom base of the lamp that may need to be tightened as well. You should be able to access it by turning it over.
