FAQ

1. What are the best Christmas light clips?

The clips I recommend are from C7 C9 Christmas Lights Spring Clips and come in a variety of lengths for every type of light. The clips are reusable, so you can use them again next year and not have to worry about paying for new clips every year.

2. What are the benefits of using Christmas light clips?

Using Christmas light clips to hang your lights on a tree makes decorating the tree a cinch. It also lets you put your decorations up much earlier than you normally would. Clip the lights to the branches as close to the trunk of the tree as possible. Even when the branches are loaded with lights, this ensures you won’t be tripping over branches and bumping into things when trying to get the tree decorated for Christmas.

3. What are some features to look for in Christmas light clips?

Light clips come in many shapes, sizes, and colors, so it’s important to look at all the features, including the type of clips, size and number of clips, how the lights are attached, the length of the cord, and the color of the cord. Some types of clips include spring clips, which are ideal for small lights; flat clips, which work well with all sizes of lights; and clamp clips, which attach the lights securely. There are also different types of clips that attach lights to wreaths or Christmas trees, and clips that mount lights to walls.

4. How do I use Christmas light clips?

Christmas light clips come in various sizes, and you will need the correct one for your particular light strings. The clip is sized to fit across the wire, with notches that match up with the holes in the wire. The clip is designed to hold only the light string itself, so attachment of the Christmas light decoration to the clip is the last step in the installation.

5. Are there any risks associated with using Christmas light clips?

Christmas light clips can be very dangerous if not used properly. Some light clips have exposed wires and can become very hot after being used in cold conditions.

I never intended to run a Catholic antiquities and book business. Not in a million years. As a cradle Catholic, I grew up in a house that was filled with Catholic images and sacramentals not to mention an abundance of excellent books provided by family members who worked in publishing houses famous for their Catholic catalogues. The beautiful images and concepts presented in those books certainly had their effect in enhancing my identity as a Catholic. As the years passed, even in the midst of very un-Catholic settings, I became a repository for my friends’ Catholic “found objects.” Eventually, I had a family of my own. We’re a small family. There are just three of us. And two of us were born with the “junk collecting gene.” Garage sales attracted us like a magnet.
