Ottlite desk lamp provides a convenient light source for reading the material close up. Unlike a traditional lamp, a desk lamp focuses light on a smaller area. Desk lamps can be mounted on the table and often have moving arms allowing the light source to be adjusted.
Clear the part of the desktop where the lamp will be placed. Measure the height from the desk to all obstacles to ensure the ottlite desk lamp fits. Locate an available power outlet. Remove the desk lamp from the package and mount it according to the instructions that came with the device. Place a small 1-inch pad at the location where the lamp will be mounted. The lamp should be placed near the edge of the desk so there is something to tighten the lamp.
Place the ottlite desk lamp bracket on a 1-inch pad. Gently pull the clip until the lamp is secure. Check the safety of the bracket by moving the lamp arms. If the lamp is not sturdy, tighten the clamp bracket. Connect the lamp to the nearest power outlet. Test the lamp by turning it. Adjust the lamp arm to focus the light on the preferred area of the desktop.
Tips and warning
Although a lamp is securely mounted to a desk, it can be detached after a while. Tighten the lamp mount when this occurs. Avoid tightening the bracket too much. Too much pressure can damage the desktop. Mounting a wall mount for your desk lamp may seem confusing when you look at the individual components. However, the process is simple and requires no special tools. Most desk lights come with a mounting kit that contains all the pieces you need, but you can also purchase appropriate hardware at any home improvement center. Place your lamp at least 15 inches above the desk to avoid fire risk and bump heads.
