Some common tips –

Always unplug a light before doing any repairs.

When it is unplugged, take the light to a handyman shop to figure out what kind of string and attachment will suit it best. Electrical rope might be level or round. A level rope will take a cinch style level rope plug; a round line will require a two-prong round-rope plug.

An attachment is made out of a few sections: an external metal shell; a protecting sleeve; the strung attachment with its switch and two screw terminals (one silver, one metal) to which the two wires inside the line append; and a protected top, which secures the terminals.

A two-prong, round-body fitting is made out of a few sections, as well: the attachment body, the shell, and the rope cinch. A brace style level rope connect comes to two pieces, a center with prongs joined, and a shell.
