Model 12 is provided with an elastic strap at the top of the shade which expands slightly when the shade is mounted on the holder. The holder consists of two parts, an upper part sitting on the outside of the lampshade and a lower part, which is mounted on the lamp socket. The holder is available in several colours, depending on which floor lamp, the shade has to be used for.
