FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Frequently Asked Questions
Q. How many strings can I connect together?
A. All our Holiday Light strings are UL listed for your safety. Please see individual product specifications in this catalog and the product packaging.
Q. Can I cut a Holiday Light string?
A. All Holiday Light strings are designed and UL listed as an entire product. If you cut the string, you may get shocked, parts of the string may not work, and all protection from UL listing will be void.
Q. When a bulb burns out, will I lose the entire string?
A. In all our Holiday Light strings, you will not lose the entire string if a bulb burns out. All the subminiature light strings have shunted filaments that allow the current to pass to the remaining bulbs if a filament were to burn out. All our C-7 strings are parallel wired, and the burn out of a bulb does not affect the rest.
Q. Can I use Holiday Lights all year?
A. All UL listed Holiday Lights currently are labeled "For Temporary (90 days max.) installation and use only." UL has tested and listed these products for seasonal use. If you need a year around product, please see LED Globe Light in the National Specialty Lighting catalog.
Q. Can I get custom colored bulbs?
Can I get strings without bulbs in them? A. We only carry what is in this catalog and do not have the ability of custom color bulbs. We do not sell strings without bulbs, as UL would not list the package in this manner.
Q. How can I get motion in my Holiday Lights?
A. The only way to achieve motion in Holiday Lights is to purchase the appropriate string. Our DXS-150 Chasing Holiday Lights currently have a controller with eight functions.
