Tips for Hanging Holiday Lights

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Putting lights on the house can really make the spirits bright. Before you string up the lights, keep the tips below in mind.

Make A List and Check It Twice
Hanging lights is a lot easier when you are organized. Make a list of all of the materials you will need–such as lights, power cords, GFCI protected outlets, etc.

Use The Buddy System
Never hang lights by yourself. If you are using a ladder to hang lights, a partner can hold the ladder in place to ensure your safety. Hanging lights with someone else can be a bonding experience. After all, the holidays are all about spending time together!

Safety Precautions
Before hanging any lights, inspect all electronic devices for frayed wire and damage. Any damaged materials should be discarded. Read all manufacturer instructions on how to hang lights safely.
