LAMP KEY EXTENSIONS
Key extensions allow ‘keys’, the small knobs that control gas and oil lamps, to be lengthened past any obstructing parts, such as a large chimney or other decorative element. They are particularly useful in situations where an antique lamp has been modified to hold larger than intended parts that, once installed, make reaching the key difficult. Because they must match the look of such older lamps, key extensions are made from the same brass that is used with other fittings.
We currently offer restorationists key extensions that come in lengths of 1” and 1/2” and that have male and female ends that measure 4/36” x 4/36” or 6/32” x 6/32”. Our line also includes a 1/2” key extension with 6/32” x 4/36” female and male ends.
