Chris and Sons, LLC in Mandan, ND used All Application Clips in the image above. If you live in North Dakota, see the Chris and Sons, LLC Facebook page or head to their website Chris and Sons, LLC to see more examples of their Christmas Light installations.
Here is what they had to say about the clips:
Hands down the most durable and multipurpose clip in the industry. We are professional holiday lighting installers and exclusively use this clip. Made in USA! Never have to worry about on the clip or off the clip when hanging. Just slide it over and BAM gutter or BAM shingle! Flawless bulb position every time! No need to worry about adjusting to get that perfectly straight hang line, it's already built in!- Chris and Sons, LLC 2020
This clip is a good choice because it works with 18 AWG cords (parallel, lamp cord style wiring), sets with smaller bases (like LED Christmas lights), icicle, and curtain lights. They work at the shingle edge and flipped to work on standard gutters. Little teeth on the edges of the clips keep them in place under shingles. The little hook at the end of the "clippy" part that is on top of shingle is designed to hold icicle lights and can also hold 18 AWG loosely if your plan is to create a light scallop or "swag" instead of a precise line.
The ends of the "pinchers" can be overlapped to hold lights with small bases like Christmas tree and LED light strings.
Here are closeup photos of that clip:
Be sure to order a clip for every bulb in your project to snap the lines into sharp outlines.
