Description: We searched high and low for an inexpensive articulating wall lamp and had come to the realization that we were going to need to cough up some cash. Until one fated afternoon in Ikea. We both laid eyes on the Barometer Work Lamp at the same second and knew it was hacking fate. Mounting it was literally as easy as 1,2,3.
1. Remove the nut from the underside of the lamp and take the weight off.
2. Cut the cord and expose the braided wire, and hook that up to electrical box in your wall.
3. Drill for toggle bolts and anchor lamp to wall.
