It is easy to understand how to put together, but parts of it are physically not that easy. There are covered wires inside each arm. Each arm is in two pieces, but the wire is continuous, so when you have to connect the two outer metal tubes the covered wires can get in the way and I had to use quite a bit of force to get the two pieces where they could screw together. But it is an inexpensive lamp, so I didn't really expect it to be perfect.
