String Lighting

String Lighting

Our String Lighting is a quick, easy and inexpensive way to light the perimeter of your tent.  Each socket has a small hook on the back so it can be clipped easily onto your sidewall rope.  The candelabra based sockets are mounted on the 18 gauge white wire either 12″ or 18″ apart.

You can purchase a spool of 1,000 ft. and cut them into your custom lengths.  Attach the male & female plugs to the cut lengths and use our standard C-7 candelabra based incandescent glass bulb or use the round Globe Party Light bulbs to update the look.  To make this lighting even easier we have them already cut, tested and ready to go in 4 lengths for each socket spacing.  Available in 20′, 30′, 40′ & 50′ lengths that come with a male & female plug and a C-7 incandescent glass light bulb for each socket.  No more broken bulbs by using our LED C-7 faceted light bulbs, C7  plastic opaque white bulbs or the candelabra based round LED plastic bulbs.

When using a C-7 incandescent light bulb remember to only run 100 sockets per electrical outlet.  That means when using the 12″ spacing you can run 100 feet and when using the 18″ spacing run up to 150 feet.

Take a look at our candelabra based LED round plastic dimmable light bulbs for your String Lighting.  These bulbs have an equivalent brightness to a 5 watt bulb.  The G40 bulbs are warm white, smooth plastic and measure 1 1/2″ in diameter.  We are also adding in a G50 bulb that measures 2″ in diameter in 2018 to give you even more options.  Light bulbs are sold in boxes of 25.

With the LED technology you can connect more of your string lighting together for a longer run making them economical and energy saving.  Maximum wattage is 840 watts.  With 12″ spacing you can run up to 420 feet and with 18″ spacing you can run up to 630 feet on one circuit if you don’t wish to dim the bulbs.  If you choose to dim the bulbs you may run 250 ft. with 12″ spacing and 375 ft. with 18″ spacing.  Make sure not to mix dim and non-dimmable bulbs together if you wish to dim.  Only use an LED compatible dimmer with dimmable LED bulbs.
