Light Bulbs: 1 way or 3 way?

Light Bulbs: 1 Way or 3 way?

Do you know how to tell if your lamp is designed for a 1 way or 3 way light bulb?

Both the 3 way and 1 way sockets have the "metal depressed tongue" however,
the 3 way socket has a vertical piece that sticks up while the 1 way socket does not.

Personally I like to have 3 way sockets so I can choose low - med - high lighting depending
on what is going on at our home (lounging/ entertaining/ reading)

3 way socket = Vertical piece on the right (where the arrow is) 

If you would like your lamp to be changed to a 3 way socket it can be done by a professional for a few dollars.
