Switching my lamps from fluorescent bulbs to LEDs (GR8 socket).
While dismantling the lamp, I accidentally pulled out the cord, as seen in the topmost picture, and I can't get it back. The other cord seems tight as well, and feels like a I have to brute force to pull it off, no?
I tried pushing the little plastic handle (advice I found online) on the other side, but apparently broke it. I'm not even sure if this is what should be done to get cords loose?
Can I still use this old GR8 socket to install the lamp or is it toast? I bought wire and new switch terminal, but GR8 sockets are rare and I would need to order them abroad.
