Notes about the plug on this cord:
This 100-foot cord was manufactured to work specifically with LED bulbs. It will be shipped with the default of a 5-amp fused plug. Please choose the "Use with LED Bulbs" as your product option to add this product to the cart if you are planning to install LED retrofit bulbs.If you’d like to use this cord with incandescent bulbs, please choose the “Use with 7-watt Bulb” option and we’ll include a 10-amp gilbert plug that can serve as a replacement for the standard 5-amp male plug at no extra charge. You’ll need to clip off the existing plug and install the gilbert plug before operating your light cord with incandescent bulbs.Note, our 100-foot cords are shipped without a female end plug.
Please contact us if you have any questions. Please contact a Master Electrician if you need assistance switching out the male end plug.
This Christmas lights stringer wire is our most popular C9 cord with residential users. AT 100 feet with 12 inch spacing, the white wire on these cords blends in nicely with light color house trim and blends in with snow if you live in a state that actually has winter. (We're located in Texas so we wouldn't know much about that.)
We carry a wide variety of bulbs that you can order separately to custom design your own Christmas light set. You can go traditional with a C9 transparent white bulb or choose one of our pastel colors - pink, purple, or teal, for example - or you can even fill this cord with LED bulbs.
This C9 cord is constructed with 18 AWG wire that is rated at 10 amps and is constructed with a single plug. Instead of running these cords in series if you are lighting over 100 linear feet of lights, we suggest that you "T" out from the splitter on the end of a commercial grade extension cord.
Since C9 cords are designed with parallel electrical circuits, you can clip these cords to fit your project. Just be sure to work with an electrician to properly terminate the end of the cord with a plug or your electrician's suggested method.
This cord has a standard SPT-1 thickness of insulation widely in commercial applications. Note we do carry this cord with SPT-2 insulation which is slightly thicker. (Both cords are made of the same 10-amp rated copper wire.)See all our C9 Cords and Spools
