Clip Suggestion to Hold 1/2 PVC Conduit


Recommended Posts

I plan to attach my C7 bulbs to 1/2" PVC conduit with zip ties for quick installation and removal.  When attaching around door and window frames, what clips would you suggest that are weather proof that I could leave up all year.

 

Thanks,

James

Ha! 😄 Metal rusts. Plastic dies in the direct sun.

Anyone tried Magnets?  There are recessed ones used on furniture like this https://www.zoro.com/monroe-pmp-magnetic-catch-pull-to-open-aluminum-4fcy2/i/G2771361/

(not a fan of this vendor :( , but this is an idea . )

I have had these clips from HC on my eaves for the last seven years as my eave lights stay up year round.

Yours hold up better than mine. Mine break every time I remove anything.

Even the ones inside on my garage wall where I have my test props.

I hate to see what happens when I have to change a light from my roof after 4 years of total exposure.

As long as I don’t touch them they should be fine.

i used to make my own out of pvc T’s or whatever I had. Got lazy and tried the coro ones.

I agree. Not all of mine break but the ones that are in direct sunlight almost always break when I remove something. I have several of the pvc clips but have yet to use them.
