Recommended Posts

Can someone recommend somewhere to buy spools of wire and plugs to make custom length cords from the controller to lights? I remember some discussion of a few places but I cannot remember the names of the places. Thanks in Advance

Paul - CDI - www.creativedisplays.com - has the plugs commonly known as vampire plugs

the bulk wire is found where ever you can get a good price. For me - I just purchase it from HD or Lowes. It usually is cheaper than having to pay shipping charges.

Hey woolfman....

I get my plug ends (male and female) from actionlighting.com. As for spools of copper, I have bought from Home Depot, Lowes, and a local electrical distributer. All are expensive these days.

Thanks Guys for your response! I was hoping for some cheap copper zip cord but nothing is cheap anymore! I will pick some up from HD.

I buy my wire and plugs from CDI. I have found that in the end, the prices don't vary enough to get too concerned about saving a buck or two.
Just my 2 cents worth.

I know a lot of people here use Travis from LED Holiday Lighting, myself being one of those people. If you haven't checked out his website lately, he has some prilimiary info about his pre-order sale which starts on the 7th. According to the site, he will be selling SPT wire and of course the vampire plugs.

Don't know any prices yet, but we may as well buy in bulk.

I also get wire and plugs from CDI. Paul has started his group buy, the wire and plugs are a pretty good price. See the LED Lights forum at Planet Christmas.

how long does the pre sale last for cdi. Good prices on 1000' zip cord and plugs. Want to wait about a month before I purchase. Hope I have that long.

What about SPT2 wire? That one is much harder to find in bulk.

Do you have to be a member of some forum to benefit from CDI's pricing?

CDI doesn't carry the C7 or C9 attach-on plugs for the SPT1 wire?

Wrong! When you call or email just say "PreSale". Paul posts the same discounts and specials on SCL, CC, CLC etc All the Decorating Forums!

After the presale, just use coupon code PC2009 for a 10% discount when ordring online. Membership is not verified, nor is it required.

35% off only applies for orders more than $1000?????? There is no way I will spend near $1000.

Anyone don't mind ordering what I need (like a group purchase)? Then I can pay you separately for the items + shipping to me?

Please?

So what you are saying is that the only way to get the 1000' zip cord for $85 will be to order over $1000.
