C7 and C9 Christmas light strings and spools are great for indoor or
outdoor Christmas displays where larger bulbs are desired. For smaller
projects, choose precut strings ranging from 25 to 150. For larger
projects, choose 1000 spools that allow you to cut custom lengths
for your roofline, outline your yard, or for any project you have in
mind. Strings and spools work with both LED and traditional
incandescent C7 or C9 light bulbs, or any bulbs with E12 or E17 bases.

What are stringers and spools?
Stringers and spools are ideal for lighting large spaces. Available in
25' stringers up to 1000' spools, stringers and spools come ready to use

insulation, and socket spacing. E12 Candelabra bases fit C7 bulbs, while
E17 Intermediate bases fit C9 bulbs and many other party lights. Can be

take amperage into account and do not let bulbs exceed the amp capacity
of the stringer or spool wire.
Do strings and spools come with plugs?
Most stringers include both a male and female plug. Spools need plugs
added to wire when cut. Zip plugs are also known as vampire plugs and
