At canopy, fixture up all the way. At canopy, fixture pulled down 6".
Fixture all the way up. Drop to bottom of handle is 78"
Fixture pulled down about 10". It can be configured
to pull down to a total of 126".
When configured to work as a pull-down fixture, the
electrical wire threads over the white porcelain pulley at the top,
down and out the hole above the counterweight pulleys crossbar and then
down inside the tube to the fixture body. The wire would run
across the ceiling from a fixed point to a pulley with a pulley hung
weight between. As the fixture is pulled down, the weight would
rise toward the ceiling. As the fixture is pushed up, the weight
would take up the slack wire. A tall case clock weight with a
pulley would work for this.
View from canopy pulleys down to counter weight. Counter weight ball. The ball is filled with lead shot to adjust the weight.
Handle on bottom to lower and raise the fixture.
Brass 2-light pull-down fixture, switched sockets, original finish
as found. Adjustable drop 78" to 126". The fixture
will be configured and wired for your instalation.
