I'm trying to make 2 floor lamps last a little longer
I have 2 floor lamps that sit on carpet in an older apartment complex with maybe not so even floors. The lamps keep falling over. Only thing I can see to repair is to somehow glue the base to the pole. One will not stay attached it looks like it's stripped as soon as I screw it back on it pops right off. The other one just won't balance. I've heard some people say they used fishing line and help them to a wall to baby proof. I will do that but need to know what to do to stabilize them. Type of glue? I thought about the foam that expands but my hubby vetoes that. Yet I'm left to fix them, he gave up.
Neither pole will stay in place and the bases seem too small but I'm just looking for a cheap fix. Never rent an apartment without overhead lighting to save $35 a month. If anyone feel too sorry for me trying to repair as my husband just said we will get new ones. But Im out of work right now due to my car being totaled when someone ran a stop sign. If you have floor lamps just sitting around. Send them on.. I need more than 2..I can't see hardly anywhere in this place.
