Replacing a lightbulb in a pendant light with a glass holder


For pendants with a glass holder like our Pointelle, Minaret, and Turret pendant lights, the process is a bit different. We suggest grabbing a friend to help you when replacing a lightbulb in a pendant light with a glass holder. Unscrew the glass holder screws and remove the glass holder to release the glass. Carefully set the glass aside. Unscrew the old lightbulb from the threaded socket. Then, screw your new lightbulb into the threaded socket. Fit the pendant light back under the glass holder and tighten the glass holder screws until the glass is secure.
