How do I take apart an ES (E27) Lampholder?

Watch the video!

 

 
 

One of our most frequently-asked questions!

So you've purchased an ES lampholder - it looks fine - but you come to actually wire it and....you cannot get it undone! 

Why?

This is because ES lampholders have a safety ratchet mechanism to prevent the lampholder coming apart when the lightbulb is unscrewed.

Watch my short video on how to undo these lampholders so you can take your wiring job forward with all speed!

All the best,
