weak joints

from Alexandria, VA

I really like this lamp - it is exactly what I was looking for. I have one on each side of my bed. They are perfect for late night reading. localized enough not to disturb my husband and vice versa. However, my husband turned his light in such a way that the ball joint dislocated at the light-neck join (I can pop it back in;but it is now happening more frequently.) The wall-join elbow is worn and week on both lamps - when bumped they swing straight down and are hard to then get to stay upright - this problem is getting tiresome - and dangerous; as these lights are hot enough to start a fire if they hit a pillow or the bed and the situation is not addressed. The joints needs rubber washers or something similar to keep the joints tight. The screw on the first wall joints looked already stripped on both lights when I initially received them. I tried to be cautious position the lights so the first vertical joints were not moved often lest they weaken - but they have worn out and now the light won't stay upright without a negative angle and its been less than 1 year since I purchased them. If I had he choice to do over, I would have heeded my own concern and purchased something different- something with only horizontal joint movement.
