Questions and Answers

Have a Question?

Ask a Question
  • I need the length to be approximately 13 feet. Is there a minimum safe length that this string can be cut?

    These cords can be cut to any length you desire. Just make sure you terminate where you cut. Some people use female plugs or electric tape.

  • If one bulb goes out, will the test stay lit?

    This cord is made in parallel so as long as the wire is not damaged, the bulbs will stay lit. Here is a link to a blog talking about it: https://www.christmas-light-source.com/blogs/articles/are-christmas-lights-in-series-or-parallel

  • Can a socket be removed if I need an unlit gap?

    Yes you can remove an empty socket if it is not to be used. But most people cover the opening with electric tape if they don't put a bulb in it. You can do it either way.

  • Is the 2 still the maximum number of strings when using LEDs?

    Yes, the specification is independent of the style of bulb installed.

  • What is the maximum amount of sets you can connect?

    This set is rated to be connected up to a maximum of 2 sets in series, regardless of style of bulbs used.

  • I only need a strand of 20 lights, what do I do with the 5 extra sockets? Do you have a screw in plug or do I just try and wrap the 5 unused sockets with plastic bags and electrical tape?

    This cord is wired in parallel so if there are unused sockets at the end of the circuit, the cord can be clipped and terminated after the 20th socket. Unplug the cord, clip, then terminate in a female gilbert plug, with electrical tape, or liquid electrical tape. A master electrician in your area can assist with this project if requried.

  • does this cord have male and female ends? and if so how many strings can be connected at once?

    This cord is constructed with a standard male/female plug set. They are rated to be run no more than 2 string sets in series independent of the style of bulbs used.

  • Does this 25L C9 empty stringer set have weep holes or is the bottom of the socket solid?

    There is a weep hole located in the bottom of each socket.

  • How many bulbs can you fit in each socket?

    A single bulb with an E17 base can be screwed into each socket. This cord has 12 inch spacing between each socket so will required 100 bulbs to be completely filled. We suggest purchasing an extra box or two of bulbs if installing traditional glass bulbs.

Beyond my expectations, I'm sorry I doubted y'all!

I'll be the first to admit, I didn't want to get scammed. I looked up reviews and a BBB grade before ordering. Everything came lightning fast and every bulb ordered worked. Packages very professionally. I'm recommending you guys to every body

Great experience

I have dealt with many other x mas light sellers. You guys are timely and affordable. I have bought strands of 25 that only have 24 fixtures. First rate. I will be back.

Great Store

Great store! Wide selection of lights.

Great quality, great price!

I was looking for commercial grade light strands for our purchase of high quality opaque LED bulbs. These were the least expensive strands I found that were rated highly. The bulbs screwed in perfectly and we are enjoying our bright, new lights! Thank you for your quick service!

it worked!!

the wire is perfect for the twinkle bulbs!! right now they are "twinkling"..

Good product and service.

Good product & Service

Great product

I did hours of research about LED lights for my tree, the conclusion i came to was that they just don't make a good set that has accurate colors and is of good quality. I was looking for the vintage look of the incandescent C9's. I finally gave up after several hours of searching and decided to go vintage all the way and get this set. I'm glad i did, this product is high quality and i have not had any problems, looks great on our Christmas tree! Don't forget to buy bulbs!

Quick delivery; Exactly as Advertized

Item shipped the next day. Arrived quickly. Exactly as advertised.

Good Product

I bought 20 of these to use with Stakes (the 4.5" universal ones are the simplest and best) and LED C9 bulbs. The are a very good product, and I like the 25' length because with the stakes, they are easy to keep organized, and also with plugs on each end, you can easily run 6 strings of LED's together which is much simpler than having to run a power cord to each string.
