Tips for use

  • Purchase an extra set of string lights to install first in the center of a Christmas tree then finish lighting the edges of the tree before adding ornaments, bows, and garland
  • Mix mini lights with C7 bulbs and cords on trees to provide "visual texture"
  • Start lighting or wrapping trees with a female plug at the top to insure that a male plug will be at the bottom of the installation - easier to plug into an extension cord that way
  • Create a romantic glow by hanging lights on an empty wall using low-adhesive hooks
  • Use a socket adapter to plug lights into an outdoor porch light
  • Keep a string or two on hand to light parties, zoom calls, and youtube video backgrounds

What you need to know

  • Incandescent bulbs warm up under operation
  • Glass bulbs can break
  • Replace burned out bulbs as soon as you see them
  • Wrap the light sets into a ball (like a ball of yarn) to help keep the wiring from tangling during installation
  • Running more than the specified maximum number of sets will blow the fuse
  • Fuse is located in male plug and a replacement fuse is included with each set
  • Additional fuses may be purchased locally at auto parts and hardware stores

How many light strings can I run in series? This depends on the specifications for the lights you choose. Look on the specifications table for "Maximum Sets Run in Series."

Can you shorten a string of Christmas tree lights? No, you CANNOT.

If a bulb burns out, will the rest of the lights go out? No, if a bulb burns out, the rest of the lights should stay lit but if a bulb is removed, that will turn off the rest of the lights in that circuit.

Sensational!

I replaced all the less-than-dependable red lights on my red tree. Stunning! The lights are a gorgeous brilliant red, and with the spacing at just 2-1/2" the result is a sea of brilliant red. I couldn't be happier.

Very Happy!

These lights were the perfect replacement for the lights on my pre-lit red garland tree I purchased 15 years ago. I am very happy with this product! Shipping was fast too.

I have a Christmas Tree that is the color red. A section of the tree of lights stop working and I was desperate to find bulbs that match. I’m so happy I found your site and saw you had the same kind of color red lights and wiring so I ordered 3 sets just to try. The lights matched perfect. Other lights I tried looked red but when plugged in were pink. Again, I’m happy and will always use your company when choosing future Christmas lighting. Thank you
