My husband and I are complete newbies at installing Christmas lights and this spool made it easy to cut our lights to the perfect length for our house. Shipment was VERY fast. Excited for this upcoming Holiday season!
After thinking about it for 20 years, we made the commitment to replace the light strings on our house with customized C9 LED (9-inch spacing) and C7 LED (12-inch spacing) strings. We have the C9 strings cut and installed. They look fabulous. We have the C7 strings for around windows and doors cut but ran out of Gilbert plugs(ordered more this morning). We are very pleased with the quality of the light bulbs, wiring(went with SPT-2 and am impressed with the quality - well worth the extra cost) and hardware. We also decided to add the rubber o-rings for rain and snow in Wyoming - glad we did. Ordering and receiving the lights, cords and accessories with Christmas Light Source has been seamless and timely. We went with the Gilbert plugs including the inline plugs and have greatly reduced the number of extension cords. We would highly recommend Christmas Light Source. Will send photos when we are finished. We wish everyone a Very Merry Christmas.
I'm not sorry I bought these, but I am disappointed in the quality. The plastic is incredibly thin and it's so easy to cross thread bulbs that it takes twice as long to screw each of the 600 of them in. I don't understand why year after year, products have to suck more and more... this C9 Spool 500' 9" Spacing SPT-1, White Wire is similar to products I've been buying for 15 years and I really wonder how long it will last. I can easily bend, crease, and crush each outlet in my thumb / finger.
This spool is just what I needed. The 9 inch spacing is perfect for roof lines. The large spool allows me to have multiple lighting configurations to change to each year.
Works as advertised. Made a great display with minimal electrical knowledge
Everything arrived quickly so we could get our house decorated. Good quality products and great customer service.
only way to go if you a lot of areas to cover on your display. order the wire in bulk and roll out what you need and terminate the ends. now you have the exact fit every year.
This 9" C9 bulk wire spacing turned out perfect with Red, Red, White alternating bulbs. I was concerned 12" was too large of spacing and am glad I went with the 9" although you need to buy more bulbs. I also was considering SPT2 but bigger lines get heavy on tall setups, something to think about. Thanks CLS!
I bought this for the entire front of my house and windows. It is very convenient to have these on a large spool and easy to cut to the correct length. A little tedious to have to screw in each individual bulb, but well worth not having them break during installation.
Love this product! Works great! Only negative is that they didn't come with instructions on how to install the male and female plugs. Found helpful video on youtube to complete that step.
