This will be helpful to those who wish to repair or add an interior light to their grandfather clock. Most interior lamps are mounted at the top of the grandfather clock with the shade pointed downward. This illuminates the weights and the pendulum of the grandfather clock in low light. It is a nice effect.
Begin by removing the glass access panel on the right hand side of the grandfather clock.
**Looking upward in the right hand access panel, you may see how the lamp in fastened to the inside of the grandfather clock**
There are two screws that hold the lamp to the back of the Grandfather Clocks
Simply “pinch” the collar on the shade to compress the ring and the shade can then be easily removed from the grandfather clock lamp.
The grandfather clock uses an Inline rotary switch for the grandfather clock lamp which is part of the line. The other end plugs directly into the wall.
Using the images above, it should be simple to understand the installation of the lamp in the grandfather clock.
