Referring to the drawing, 5 represents tho ceiling or other portion of the building to which the lamp is attached, and (5 represents tho orows foot by which the attachment oil'a ted. llii.-i device is secured to tho coiling in any suitable Way, for instance by screws 7. The orows foot is disk shape l or heinisphericol as plainly shown at Fig. 1. T he ehundolicr is attached to o piece of tubing 8, and this tubing is tin-muted intlo a. nippie 9, having side ports or openings 16 for the electric wires. At its uppor end, this nipple is throoded into a tubular extension 11 otinched to the (up or heniisphorioally shaped hood or supportin'g annulus 12. This Suppoi-ling annulus is located above and wiihin tho (impressed portion of the orows foot and rvsts thereon or upon theiusuiating waehor interposed hotween the two, and dim tubular extension ii. extends domiward through the crow s loot, as glziiniy shown. The; opening 1%. in the crows foot is madelarger th n the tubular extension 13, so that tho i'hundciier only swing a iimiiod disiance in any horizontal direction without bringing iho tubular extension against the \hsoll oi the opening id or against iiIG downward ilougo 15 provided upon thoinsulo'ting Washer 13.
