This lamp holder must be earthed and uses an anti rotation mechanism to ensure that the body can not be open when changing the bulb. Before applying power after wiring and reassembly, test the anti-rotation feature. If it fails to lock, remove the lamp holder body and bulb receptacle and gently open the anti-rotation mechanism over to a more aggressive position.
Our brass lampholders are compliant to AS/NZ standards and hold a Certificate of Approval (RCM) and CE for European markets.
Locate the active terminal and its anti-rotation mechanism. Using a suitable screwdriver, gently open the anti-rotation mechanism towards the centre of the lamp holder so as to clear it from the locking teeth on the bulb receptacle. This will now allow the lamp holder body to be unscrewed from the lamp holder top. Once disassembled, gently prise the anti-rotation tab back into position using a pair of small pliers so that it engages with the locking teeth on the bulb receptacle. We have also provided a downloadable visual guide to disassembly in the documents tab below.
