    Just been given the above light but the glass has fallen out and I cannot get it to stay back in, the metal plate the hole is bigger than the glass so it just keeps falling through was it originally glued in place?

    How hard to take picture with both hands being used!! With tongue!

    Looks like those two CSK screws may have restrained a metal clip that held the glass disc in place?

    Not sure, the person who gave to me said nothing has come off, could I buy a clip? Saying that all the screws are different so don"t know what"s going on with it? Any ideas? Thanks for your reply

    Agree with securespark. You could make a couple of clips and use any of the screws; they are just thin metal with a hole for the screw and about 12mm long by 5 wide. Not so neat but workable would be a pair of washers.
    What you must not do is use the lamp without the glass as those lamps give off a lot of UV and by definition are close to the eyes in use

    Thanks for reply, after hours of searching I think they are turnbutton clips used in picture framing, looks quite similar to the Wikipedia pic, any thoughts?

    Just buy some solder tags, they should do the trick.
