Here is a question that I received this morning from a woman in Florida:
Regarding this product: Clear 15 strand with 4 inch lead
, if I remove one or two bulbs will all remaining lights stay on?
That's a good question and since it applies to almost all of our mini lights, I thought I'd answer it here in our blog.
All of our mini light bulbs have a tiny little shunt wire - you can see it if you look really, really closely - that completes the circuit when a light goes out. So if one light "goes out" the rest stay on.If you remove a bulb, however, the circuit is broken so the rest of the other lights will go out. This is also true if the base of the bulb or the socket is damaged.
