Surface Mount Clips for Christmas Lights

by | Nov 9, 2011

I’ve got a wooden fence…. how do I hang Christmas lights on it?

I get this question from time to time and I’m happy to report that there is a clip designed specifically for this application – and it has a zippy name… Surface Mount Clip. 🙂

Each clip is set in a little “S” and technically, you’d need to use one for each C7 or C9 bulb that you want to snap into attention along your fence or flat surface. You run the wire on each side of the bulb socket under a side of the S and a little lip catches it and holds it in place. If you have a terribly irregular surface that may affect how snugly the wire is held. The socket is positioned so that the bulb is perpendicular to the flat surface of the clip.

So passers-by will see and neat and orderly row of lights all pointing right at them. (They’ll all be envious – I’m just sayin’.)

I hope you are planning your Christmas light display now – don’t forget how you are going to install your lights.

Merry Christmas,
