Answer: 
As previously stated, this light comes in two versions - 150 watt and 300 watt.
The problem is, Home Depot's website says the 300 watt version is in stock at the store but when you get there, they only have the 150 watt version. Very annoying.

Answer: 
This light is rated to handle up to a 300 watt light bulb. I'm not sure of what other marking shows on the product stating that it only handles a 150 watt bulb. That other marking is not correct.

I specifically purchased this for use with 250 watt infrared heat bulb. So is the lamp really 300 watts and packaged in the wrong box or is the web page description incorrect?

I'm not sure where people are getting that this light is rated for only 150 watts. All of the product labeling on the 303 series lights shows 300 watts - both in the online marketing, on the product packaging and on the labeling on the light itself. We (the manufacturer) sell multiple versions of clamplights, but this one is definitely rated for 300W. If someone has a picture of something that shows 150W Read More

Hi EvZ,
If the clamp is separated from the fixture, attach it using the metal ring that fits around the reflector, on the outside of the reflector's base near the socket. Tighten the band with the wingnut and bolt.
If the clamp and light are intact, follow these instructions:
The silver, metal wire that is coiled near the lamp socket is bowed and extends out, away from the lamp.

Hi EvZ,
If the clamp is separated from the fixture, attach it using the metal ring that fits around the reflector, on the outside of the reflector's base near the socket. Tighten the band with the wingnut and bolt.
If the clamp and light are intact, follow these instructions:
The silver, metal wire that is coiled near the lamp socket is bowed and extends out, away from the lamp.
With one hand, grasp both of the bowed silver wires in your palm and squeeze, making a fist.
This will cause the plastic ends of that wire to open as you squeeze. Place the open jaws over a post or any substantial surface to hold the lamp when you release your grip on it.
Thank you for asking,

Customer Reviews

Rated 2.8 out of 5 by 25 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Problems On The Assembly Line? I can't believe that the clamp that was included was intended for this lamp. The wing nut hits against the lamp neck, making it difficult to turn. And to L111: Thank you for your photos. They were a huge help. Maybe you know how this goes together, but no one else leaving a review did. The lack of instructions is inexcusable. Would it have killed the manufacturer to include an instruction sheet? And they didn't because.....?! Because the added cost of a piece of paper would drive up costs? Because they don't want return customers for any of their products? Home Depot: Why would you sell this product? HDX: Check your assembly line; someone fell asleep. July 26, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great large reflector lamp The negative reviews of this item don't make sense. This is a decent lamp that works fine and is exactly as described. In case there are multiple versions of this lamp out there, the model I purchased from my local store came in a white HDX box with orange and gray print. In the upper left corner, it says "SKU 596 000". The description is 10.5 in Heavy Duty Heat Lamp, with 8ft 18/2 SJT cable with heavy duty scratch resistant clamp. 300 watt max Type A bulb. To clarify / correct some of the negative reviews: First, this is a 300 WATT lamp with 10.5" reflector. This is NOT a 150 watt lamp with 8.5" reflector. The product description on the web site matches the description on the box. If you ordered a 300 watt lamp and received a 150 watt model, you must have received the wrong model. See my attached photos of the box and the lamp. Second, you CAN remove the lamp from the box without destroying the box. You have to very gently slide the reflector sideways out of the box, and then gently pull it out. It took about 30 seconds of fiddling and some patience, but my box is 100% intact without a single tear. Third, instructions are NOT required to assemble this lamp--it is extremely simple and easy. If you are unable to figure out how to assemble the lamp or the clamp, get some assistance--it is not difficult. See my attached photo of the clamp. Just put the knurled ball in between the two pieces of metal from the clamp, and tighten the wing nut. It takes about 10 seconds. Fourth, this lamp DOES NOT have a switch. It just plugs in and turns on. If you need a switch, I recommend looking at the GE Model # 25511 "Grounded Power Switch White", available for order from the Home Depot web site for less than ten dollars. I use the GE switch with this lamp and it works great. This lamp is inexpensive and pretty basic but it gets the job done. The aluminum reflector is so thin and soft that slight pressure will bend it or dent it, so you have to handle it gently. It will work fine if mounted in a stationary position, but I would not use it for anything mobile or where it needs to be constantly mounted and removed, as it will not take much abuse The bulb base is a thick two piece ceramic base. While it seems fairly good quality, because it is two pieces, it came unscrewed when I attempted to remove a light bulb. So just be gentle with it and don't screw in the bulb too tight. The 18 ga cord is relatively thick for a lamp, and mine had a TWO prong plug (not grounded). Another reviewer said that his had a 3 prong plug--perhaps there are multiple versions. I'm using mine for photo studio lighting, so I'm using a 65W CFL bulb in the light. One minor issue is that the reflector gets in the way of the wide CFL bulb base, so the bulb pushes against the reflector when screwed all the way in. It fits, but it's a tight fit. The lamp was designed for Type A bulbs, not CFL bulbs, so this is not the lamp's fault, but something to know if you plan on using a CFL. Because I'm only using the 65W CFL, I can't attest to how this would hold up against the heat of a 300W bulb. The clamp is functional and seems to work well. My clamp looks completely different from the photo on the web site, and is much better than the style shown on the web site. The clamp on mine is definitely not ergonomic, as the ends of the spring stick straight out and dig into your hand as you squeeze the clamp and mount the light. I wrapped gaffers tape around the springs to keep them from stabbing into my hands--which worked great. However, the clamp on mine has a very strong spring and holds the lamp surprisingly well. I have it clamped to a piece of 3/4" plywood, and it holds great. Just in case, I put a screw in the wood to stop the clamp from falling off, just in case it does ever slip. Overall, this light is great--it's very inexpensive and does the job just fine. February 8, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by It's a clamp light Typical clamp light although I'll give it 4 stars. It has a nice 18ga SJ cord and 3 prong plug along with a ceramic socket that seems securely mounted in the fixture. In spite of all that it clearly states on the fixture to "Use only 150 watt R40 lamp" Don't know what's up with that. The 150 watt version has a plastic socket and is less money also has a smaller reflector. October 20, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by DO NOT BUY What a piece of crp!!!!! Instructions are worthless. Figured it out on my own. Wing nut might as well be made with aluminum foil. Sorry I bought this item (Watered down due to inappropriate language). May 7, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Disapointing Flimsy. In particular, the clamp part is hard to attach. The lamp uses a wing nut to hold the retaining bracket to the clamp assembly, but the wing nut can't be fully tightened because it hits the neck of the lamp. So the lamp flops over. Fairly useless, actually. It's going back tommorow. April 17, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by The worst Not sure why the clamp isn't attached to the lamp, but the instructions to make that happen are indecipherable. And there's no on/off switch on the lamp. Cheap piece of crp. March 19, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Typical lame instructions I usually don't write reviews unless I'm really excited or really disappointed with a product. My main and basically only complaints with this light is the assembly instructions or I should say lack there of! As was stated in previous reviews, the instructions are nearly useless, unless you've bought and assembled this same light before, and then you wouldn't need instruction sheet this time!lol So to help out my fellow man, or woman, first off 1- the small clamp slips through the metal neck, and actually clamps on the ceramic light bulb holder. 2- The large spring clamp is attached to the small clamp by pressure fit. The round metal fitting with bumps on it, goes between the small clamp where the two holes are, and is held in place by tightening the wing nut...enjoy:) February 21, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Your standard chicken light, great base, lame clamp Same as a million others like it, works great for a shop light or heat lamp, or for a patio party. I used a milk crate and steel wire to replace the spring clamp. March 2, 2015
