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!

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

        we are a manufacturing plant and all our seamstresses use this lamp. Attaches easily to work area and can be adjusted according to personal preference. The fact that you can direct the light on a certain area you are working on is a bonus and no worries about the lamp coming loose as you easily adjust it. We have been in business for almost 25 years and this has been our lamp of choice since we first tried them out over 10 years ago. I highly recommend this product and as we add sewing machines and operators, we will be ordering more.

        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
