I buy one of these about every 2 years or so.They dont last forever,but for the price its cheap enough to replace.It will short out before any other parts break.I have the same problem every time.I will have to buy another one in about 2 years.The older ones use to have a plastic tube at the bottom that fit into a plastic mount ,they improved the tube to metal a few years back.So now I just have to stick the new lamp in the old bracket and I'm ready to go.Its above my head and out of the way. It fits perfect on my custome made home office desk.And you cant beat the price.If they ever fix the short in the lamp head problem it would be the best desk lamp I could ever buy.But it is what it is.

I put this light on a basement workbench. I thought it was reasonably priced based on similar types I've used at various work stations at home. On about the 4th time I used it, I was becoming dissatisfied at the way the light would sink back to a low profile on it's own. I turned a tension knob at the middle joint hoping to apply more resistance. It snapped with just the slightest pressure,and the lamp fell into several pieces. Perhaps if they had not put a ridiculously large on/off knob on the top, it might have been light enough to stay up. Junk!

good retro product

By Henry L.

from New York City

Verified Buyer

Comments about Tensor® Black Swing-Arm Incandescent/CFL Clamp Lamp:

The product is well constructed. It remains steady when clamped on the edge of my card table. This retro-look product is now very hard to find in a store. The only issue I have with this lamp is that the base and the arm are two separate units, instead of one connected piece, raising the risk of misplacing either piece when I put it away while not in use. However, it is a minor issue and this lamp remains a good value product.

Swing Arm Light

By Rita

from Queen Creek, AZ

Verified Buyer

Comments about Tensor® Black Swing-Arm Incandescent/CFL Clamp Lamp:

This light is great. It clips to the table and allows the light to be focused exactly in the spot that it is needed, or pull it back and light a larger area. I use it with my sewing machine, and I am able to shine the light down close when I am needing to ripe stitches out, or farther back when I need to cut my material. Great price too!

it Is flimsy the clamp does not work

Comments about Tensor® Black Swing-Arm Incandescent/CFL Clamp Lamp:

it Is flimsy the clamp does not work unless it is straight
everything is made very cheaply and with slight touch will part apart, it can barely hold itself up
if you need to keep moving the light this is not the right choice..
it is one of the cheapest one I found and I got what I paid for I assume

Versatile lamp

Comments about Tensor® Black Swing-Arm Incandescent/CFL Clamp Lamp:

We've purchased a couple of these lamps over the years, and they provide ample light and are easy to adjust if we need them lower, higher, or left or right. They're simple to clamp to the table as well.
They are a very good purchase for us.

A basic, old-standby lamp

By BruceHz

from Newton, MA

Verified Buyer

Comments about Tensor® Black Swing-Arm Incandescent/CFL Clamp Lamp:

This lamp has been in production for more years than I can remember. This purchase replaced one that I had purchased long ago and finally failed. The only substantive change that I can see, interestingly, is in the part that broke! That part was the cylindrical stub on the lamp that fits into the hole in the mounting bracket. The one that failed was plastic; the new one is metal.

The new lamp does have a shorter cord than the old one did, but not unreasonably short. I should note that the old lamp's plastic "hemispherical" switch knob (at the back of the lamp housing) had also broken off, but I just added an in-line switch in the power cord. That item has NOT been replaced.

But for the price this lamp does what I need and should last me another 10(?) years.
