Problem hanging ceiling lamp with cord set (from Ikea

Finally, is the hook all the way in? Perhaps screwing it up further into the ceiling would make the cap go higher.

Are body parts like thighs, hips etc. considered private parts too?

Its the type where you hook the connector to the ceiling, then push the cup (which conceals all the wiring) up to the ceiling.

Ah, yes, sorry, it was about 2 in the morning 😛

Thanks I will give it a try later. Just need to get red tape so its not unsightly but maybe some other kind of stop under the cap would do the trick as an alternative. BTW what I did in the end was cut the cable to size which improved things (Im not sure how as pulling all the cable out didnt help at all) but still isnt perfect and comes loose every time someone touches the lamp…

A suggestion I received from their [Ikeas] telephone help line was that maybe amount of cord coiled up inside the cup was too much and was pushing it out (and I should shorten the cord), but Ive even tried pulling it all out so there is virtually no wire left inside, with the same results.

But there doesnt seem to be a way of fixing the cup to the ceiling, it always dangles by about a centimetre or two. The instructions (pictures only) seem to suggest that you simply have to push it up and I suppose the tension in the cord maybe holds it in place, but it always slides down a little bit.

Ive tried to diagram my problem below… The blue cup should be against the ceiling, but I cant see any way of holding it in place except the grip the cup has on the cord but that doesnt seem to be strong enough.

Got it new and have instructions – there was no part missing and the instructions dont mention about a piece similar to the screw-in sleeve you have. The hook is all the way in, but putting it up further would make no difference (if it was possible) because the hook itself is not actually attached to the cap.

I have a similar Ikea fixture, but it came with a metal sleeve that tightens with a screw–this part sits below the cap, but this light has a rod (rigid, not the cord itself) for this sleeve to work on.

Trying to hang a ceiling lamp and I cant figure it out.

FYI mentioned Ikea because I bought several different ones in the same shop and they all seem to use the same method to connect to the ceiling…

For aLifehackstype of solution, I guess you could use a few layers of tape wrapped around the cable just below the cup to increase the cable diameter and thus tension where its needed?

Assuming you have the instructions and all the pieces, I think your best bet would be finding a rubber O-ring (or several) which match the cord diameter, and sliding those up to keep the cap up….or using a twist-tie painted to match the cord. Once you have the cap up reasonably flush with the ceiling, you could use clear silicone caulk around the rim of the cup, which can easily be peeled away later if youre renting.

Did you buy it new? If for some reason you didnt have the instructions and therefore couldnt verify if a piece was missing, you can find those here: know you can order replacement parts from Ikea, at least if what you need hasnt been discontinued.

I happened to be in Ikea again a few weeks ago, and noted that not eventheycan hang the things properly!
