  1. Thanks for the input on this and after doing more research...I have decided to place my light video's in the "made for kids" category to be on the safe side.
  2. I am wondering what everyone is doing with their YouTube videos with the new COPPA requirements being enforced by the FTC starting on Jan 1, 2020? Thanks,
  3. 21ft with out the star and 12ft diameter at the base
  4. The PVC will also work if you have a ridge vent on your house, It works just fine with mine. Just an FYI
  5. Originally I was going to clip the mini's on the steel rod, then I realized what a PITA it would be. So I just zip-tie the lights to the steel rod. It doesn't add any strength.
  6. I use 1/2" pvc to outline my roof. I have a "How To" on my website here: http://www.brownchristmaslightshow.com/roof-outline-lights.html
  7. Thanks for the info, I think I will go with HLE being they are a Michigan Business and I like to help out a local business when I can. Besides their prices are cheaper and have free shipping with a $1k+ order.
  8. Don, So how did your apples to apples comparison turn out. I plan on making a big investment in LED's for the 2013 show and I am debating between CDI and HLE. Thanks
  9. Matt, First...I have 10 - 20A GFCI on a 100amp Sub-Panel For your case... do you want to be able to draw 15amp from all 4 of your GFCI's. If so this is what you will need to do: Run a 14-3 gage wire (White color plastic cover with 4 wires inside, Black, Red, White, Bare Copper) note: [only if this is in the wall, if not use seperate wires in PVC conduit do not run Romex wire in PVC] from your box on the porch (sub-panel) to a box housing 2 - 15A GFCI's. In your sub-panel you will need two twin 15A breakers that hook up to each one of your 2 - Outlet boxes. Now for wiring it click on this
  10. Hopefully Menards will have Red and Green 100ct Mini's this year.
  11. True! Super Strings is what I meant, however I guess when you think about it is a Bundle, Damn now its getting confusing !
  12. The past two years I have outlined my roof with PVC that has 1/4" steel rod mounted to it with my Super Bundles (R,G,W) lights zip-tied to the 1/4" rod. Here is a link to my "How To" on this. Hope this helps. http://www.brownchri...ine-lights.html Here is one of the photos in the "How To":
  13. Matt, I did a "how to" for a subpanel. I am not a professional or licensed electrician but I do have lots of experience. If you have additional questions please feel free to pm me. http://www.brownchristmaslightshow.com/electrical.html
  14. Here is the design that I came up with a couple of years ago. It consists of using PVC to follow the roof outline. http://www.brownchristmaslightshow.com/roof-outline-lights.html Hope this helps,
