Customer Questions & Answers

How can I loosen a lock ring that is stuck?

Asked by: T1129
I got the ring off of my threaded porcelain socket! (The ring is the flat metal type with ears, NOT the kind in the picture above.) Start by getting a small container of silicon grease. Get four socket outlet adapters Put grease on the threads of each end so you can get them apart later if you need to. Then screw them together end to end. This will be your "handle tool" to keep the ceramic socket in you fixture from turning. Put grease on the threads of the light socket of your fixture that has the stuck ring. This will allow you to remove the handle later. Thread the four outlet sockets handle tool tightly into the fixture light socket. Then I made the "ring tool." I cut a piece of 2" PVC pipe about 5-1/2" long. Then cut a notch about 3/8" by 3/8" opposite each other on one end of the pipe. When it's finished, the tool should go over the two 'ears' of your stuck ring. PVC pipe is smooth, so I covered the other half of the pipe with PVC cement and quickly poured some dry sand on it so I could get a good grip when it dried. I let it dry for 20-30 minutes. Then I put the ring tool into the fixture, over the handle tool. I held the end of the handle tool with one hand and the ring tool with the other. I then turned the ring tool counterclockwise while holding the end of the handle tool. The ring was hard to turn and for a while it got harder and then all of a sudden it popped off! Then, to put it back together, I put silicon grease on the first few porcelain threads and also the inner part of the ring. I carefully (!) threaded it on and all is well. If I got it jammed again, I now had two tools to get it off. I know this is a little complicated to make, but nothing else worked. It doesn't cost too much. If it helps one person, I will be very happy. Wait, that was me. If it helps one MORE person I will be happier. I don't have any images, but if someone needs them, let me know by adding to this question.

My metal ring is screwed on upside down and crooked. It will move a little up and down but won't unscrew all the way.

I've tried wd40 wet rag etc still won't come off
Asked by: bj
Unfortunately, it sounds like the shade ring is misaligned, you could try a shade ring wrench to see if loosens the shade ring.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bathroom light assembly and socket change Good price good product. Changed all my gu24 sockets to standard and saved even more by cutting down the wattage total from 39 to 19.5. to top it off no more cfl with mercury. No heat from the light and longer life. The gu24 barely would last a year times the seven I used to have at 9$ a piece was a waste. For the cost of a set of replacement gu's I got all three sockets and the 4pack of led 40 6.5watts vice the 13 watts. These are suppose to last 22 years that we'll see but you never know. Took a little engineering to resolve a height issue with the socket as compared to the original but a little grinding to shorten the height post and it was completed. I will be doing the four bulb unit next week and that will be huge savings from 52 watts down to 26. Thx Home Depot.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I can use the shade I want now! I needed to replace the sockets in an old fan/lamp that didn't work with the universal fan light kits, so I got these and installed them. I can use the hanging light shades now and I love it. I wish they were not made of porcilien b/c they brake easily but it got the job done easy and well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Save me from buying a new chandelier! Light Bulb broke in existing socket. Tried to remove old bulb out, but damaged light socket doing so. Replacement was a little tricky, but not due to the product. I thought I would have to order the socket from chandelier manufacturer. It was great that Home depot carried this socket.
