A ceiling cap is needed to hang your lamp neatly. You put the lamp cord through the ceiling cap. The lamp cord is hidden within the ceiling hood and also the terminal block and the hanging hook can be hidden within the ceiling cap. This way you can get rid of the less beautiful parts of your lamp. Most lamps usually have a matching ceiling cap, but this is not always the case with old lamps. In our assortment you will find a large assortment of ceiling caps in different shapes and styles.
Ceiling cap connecting directly to cord
If you want to connect a ceiling hood directly to the lamp cord, place a strain relief under the ceiling hood. This allows you to attach the ceiling hood tightly to the ceiling. Don't use a adjusting ring, these have a metal screw that you don't want to screw directly on or in your cord. If you do, you may get a short circuit.
Ceiling hood combined with rod and pendulum
Are you looking for a ceiling hood for a hanging lamp with rod and pendant? Then you will need to place a adjusting ring under the ceiling hood. Some of the ceiling caps in our range come with this as standard. Otherwise you will have to buy the adjusting ring separately. Use a caliper to measure the outside diameter of the rod of your pendant. Usually you need an adjusting ring of 1.0 cm (M10) or 1.3 cm (M13) to hold your ceiling cap, but other diameters also occur.
Suspending a pendant lamp from a chain
Do you want to hang a lamp with a lamp chain? Then this works about the same as with a lamp with rod and pendulum. In this case you use a piece of rod with an eye on it. This is also called a standpipe. So here you also need a adjusting ring.
