HOLIDAY LIGHT HOOKS - "Put em up and leave em up"
Hanging lights using your Holiday Light Hooks
When hanging your lights for the first time using Holiday Light Hooks it's easiest to install the hooks as you hang your lights. Whether you are using string type mini lights, C7, or C9's the installation is the same. Determine where the socket will be and install the hooks in between so that wire will be in the hook. I don't like my lights perfectly straight so I allow a little sagging in between the hooks. It's totally up to you. The hooks can be installed with the sockets right next to the hook which will allow them to be installed in a straight line.
Your roof hooks are virtually invisible from the street. 35' away.
Your gutter hooks aren't noticeable when painted to match your trim. 15' away.
I have had several questions about using Holiday Light Hooks with rope lights. When using 1/2” rope lights I found they wouldn't fit the hook as manufactured. I spread the hook apart and added a bend at the top to hold the lights in place.

I would recommend placing your hooks one foot apart to prevent sagging. If using 3/8” rope lights just spreading the hook apart will hold the lights. Winds of 35 to 40 mph has not altered the placement of the lights. In between structures can cause a wind tunnel effect. In those instances you may want to install your hooks 1' foot apart. We have one corner of the house which seems to get more of the wind tunnel effect. In that area I placed 3 hooks 1' foot apart which cured the problem.
