Think of a Design

Inspect the Lights

Before you hang the lights, be sure to inspect them. If you notice that lights are damaged or cords are frayed, refrain from using them. You should only use lights that are in good working condition and intended for outdoor use.

Be Safe

The most important thing you can do while hanging holiday lights is to be safe. You can do this by working alongside someone else. In addition, do not decorate trees on your property that come into contact with power lines.
