Good Questions: How to Solve Skimra IKEA Lamp Issue?

Brandy sent us an email: I'm perplexed by my IKEA lampshades. Are they designed only to fit IKEA bases? I've recently purchased a few Skimra shades but even with the little fitting thingy, they still lean over. The diameter of the hole in the fitting is too large for my lamp bases (which I don't believe to be unusual). Has anyone encountered this, and if so, is there a great DIY to make them work?

Anyone have tips for Brandy??
