How To Make The Bottle Lamp Kit Adapter Fit My Bottle

The bottle lamp kits that come complete with all your accessories might need to be modified.

One of the most recurring questions that we get for the bottle lamp kits are the ones concerning the rubber adapters that should fit the neck of the bottle. Most kits come with three varying sized adapters that should cover all the different bottle necks sizes quite nicely. Unfortunately, they all seem to fall short or are way too big.

The fix is really simple and only requires a small amount of everyone’s favorite go to fix it, ‘Duct Tape‘. Yep, that’s right, that universal essential tool, all-purpose duct tape that can be found in everyone’s tool box. Versatile and never out of fashion a couple little strips of the duct tape will have you up and running in no time.

By ripping off a strip of duct tape the width of the adapter and adding a few layers to it, you will then have a more snug fit for your bottle’s neck. Having the duct tape the width of the adapter will also make it easier to conceal the adapter. You really don’t want the duct tape to show so this makes it easier to hide.

The corresponding video on how to make the bottle lamp kit adapter will give you a better visual idea of what to do.

Hopefully this will make it easier for you to complete your bottle lamp project.

  • Thanks Author. Might have to pick up a few cases then. I’m down to my last 2 spam cans of ball.

  • Hello
    This is Amy of the Herredura bottle lamp photo. I often drill a hole in the cork that come with the bottle. It’s a little difficult to center the whole perfectly. The trade off is that you get a nice snug fit.
    I’ve got a sick pack of fancy white tequila bottles waiting for me!

    • Amy,
      Greetings! We remember the Herredura lamp photos that you sent. That was a really nice lamp. I have made the original cork that came with a few of the bottles the main adapter myself. They work really nice considering that when you work with them you have an original fit. Can’t wait to see your tequila bottles!
      Good to hear from you again,
      Nick
