Hello,

I am wanting to put multicolor C9's on the gutter and all of the eve's on the house. What clips do you recommend to get that straight as an arrow look.

PS: Pictures and links would help.;)


Thanks

That's the way i go they seam to work the best and easy to remove in the spring. I change mine every year cause the plastic that holds the socket looses its grip on the socket after the first year. If you buy after Christmas you can get the box of 100 for around a buck. I had to buy 17 boxes for this year and it cost me almost 20 dollars. If i bought them now it would be around 84 dollars. The only thing to watch out for is the ones i got were two piece ones. You have to put the socket holder clip onto the base of the holder itself. Not to bad but when i had to put 1700 together before i could hang a light, my thumb went numb.

I hung my roofline C9s below the gutter where the horizontal soffit is. This works well only if you have vinyl/aluminum siding. Just clip them to the small piece of trim on the outside corner of the soffit/eaves. No extra clips required. When hung like this, they are "straight as an arrow."

I like that idea for the front of the house but in my display i do the entire roofline and if i put them there you would not see the lights going up the sides of the roof line from the front of the house. What do you do.

Actually, in front and to one side of my house is a huge pin oak. Pin oaks don't lose their leaves until March around here, so it blocks the view on that side. And the chief financial officer (aka, better half) won't let me touch that tree with my saw. So the only real viewing angle on my house/display is front and a little to the other side. Therefore, you can see the lights going up the side.

Soooo . . .

You make a good point. I would then suggest using the soffit in front, and clips up the edges to bring the lights to a good viewing point. ;)

Use a extension rod to install them. with the long hook pointing down they clip to the gutter. Long up.. slide under your shingles.

Can you show these installed at your place????
These are my favorite but, they don't sell them in Canada.

I've use these for 4 years now and love them, (you do have to trash them after use as they dry out and break over the summer), but they are cheap and REALLY work good. There is a extendable pole for them but you can use any of the poles that have the course thread used for squeegee's etc. Available from Lowes.
