Help needed for socketing items for merc

My merc's weapon has sockets, but I am unable to socket it while it's on my merc. If I socket the weapon in my inventory then my merc can't use it any more. Both the weapon and the socketed item are below the level requirement. The same thing happened to 2 different characters that I started. I just came back to play D2 again after the 1.10 patch. Is this the way it works after the patch? Please let me know what I am doing wrong. It's been a quite while since I last played. :) Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
 
Get hold of whatever item fills in for the lost attribute req, put it on, remove the item, socket it, put it back on the merc and jiggle around abit with stuff that i.e. have suffix "of the titan" or whatever suits your needs. Or try leveling your merc.

You can't socket stuff that your merc is wearing. Just remove the item, put it in your inventory, socket it, then put it back on your merc. This is assuming that you havent socketed it with a jewel/rune that has lvl requirements that your merc dosen't meet.

Great, it worked! I thought you can socket the item while it's on the merc. So much is forgotten. I am so glad that I posted here. It really shows that I am a newcomer. :) Thanks for the reply.
