Library lamp motor question
This is a really silly question, but I've got to ask it. I finally found a motor for my Victorian library lamp, but I don't think I'm operating it correctly. The chains are contained within the motor right now and when I tug on them, they give a little but seem to be in a locked position. I can't figure out how to release the chains so that they will extend down. Yes, I know - dumb! But it's driving me nuts.
This was an eBay find, so I'll include a link to the ad that has a couple photos:
Can anyone help me figure out what I'm doing wrong?
