Thread the harp over the wire onto the threaded rod, and then thread the socket cap over the wire and screw it tightly onto the threaded rod. This will secure the harp and provide a solid base for the socket. I’ve also tied a little knot — called an underwriter’s knot — in the wires, to help keep tension off the wires where they’re connected to the socket.
