Uno Fitter Lamp Shades
What is an Uno Lamp Shade?
Uno fitter lamp shades connect directly to a lamp socket. (The fitter is placed around the socket before the light bulb is screwed in.) The uno shade is then fitted directly to the socket without the need of a harp or bowl.
Uno lamp shades are ideal for small- or medium-size table lamps, in addition to downbridge floor lamps, with many styles to choose from.
The Best Thing About Uno Shades
People who have discovered replacement shades with uno fitters love the fact that they do not require a harp or hardware to connect the shade to the lamp base.
But the best thing of all is that it's incredibly easy to insert a bulb—you simply reach through the top of the shade to replace it!
Two (2) Types of Shades for Uno Fitters
Slip Uno Lamp Shades attach to the slip uno fitter which is placed—or slipped—over the socket, and held firmly in place by a plastic ring. Slip Uno Fitters are located toward the bottom of the shade, and are commonly used with accent lamps, small table lamps, and bedside lamps.
Threaded Uno Lamp Shades are used with a downbridge style floor lamp with down socket and hanging lampshade. This type of fitter is constructed using a 1-1/4” threaded screw that is inserted into the threaded socket of the shade. Unlike the slip uno fitter, a threaded uno fitter holds the shade in place without a bulb. Because the threads wear over time, a threaded uno fitter needs to be replaced more often than a slip uno fitter. Threaded uno fitters are located toward the top of the shade, and are used on floor lamps that have an arm that extends over a table or chair.
