What Type of Shade Fitting Do You Need?
In addition to the size of the shade, you’ll also need to know what type of fitter your lamp uses to attach the shade to the lamp body. There are several types of lamp fitters. You can click on any image below to see a larger version.



Spider and Washer with Harp – This is the most common type of fitting for table and floor lamp shades. It comes in two varieties. Industry Standard 1/2" washer and (for specific applications) Standard 1/2" washer with a cut out.

  • Standard 1/2" Washer
  • Cut Washer


Uno – Usually found on smaller table lamps. No harp is needed as the wire fitting is permanently attached to the shade. The shade attaches directly to the lamp socket below the light bulb.

  • Uno
  • NOTE: A Typical UNO Socket


Euro – Similar to the American Uno, this is European stye lampshade fitting. Usually found on smaller table lamps. No harp is needed as the wire fitting is permanently attached to the shade. The shade attaches directly to the lamp socket below the light bulb.

  • Euro
  • NOTE: A Typical Euro Socket


Clip-On – This type comes in two sizes: (1) smaller for candle bulbs found on accent lamps and chandeliers and (2) larger for the standard Edison bulbs. Clip-on lamp shades clip directly onto the light bulb with no additional hardware.

  • Bulb Clip
  • Edison Clip
