About this deal

For a distinctive decoration choose connectable string lights with an assortment of lighting functions,' says Claire Bassett, Senior Product Manager at Lights4fun. 'Options include static, twinkle to perhaps compliment a twinkly night sky, chase and flashing so you can match your lights to any celebration! Elevate your garden lighting even more by using Twinkly lights (available at Lights4fun).

If you have a large outdoor area to illuminate, decorate with connectable string lights and daisy-chain multiple sets together from a singular power source,' says Claire Bassett, Senior Product Manager at Lights4fun. 'This simple but effective design will enable you to light up any area of your garden as you can connect up to 200 metres of lights.' Tip: Avoid draping the lights over furniture or other obstacles, as this will interfere with your measurements.Hooks and Clips: Attach hooks or clips to the desired mounting points, such as trees, walls, fences, or pergolas. Hang the festoon lights directly on the hooks or clips, ensuring they are securely fastened. Outdoor Festoon Lights: Make sure you have enough to cover the entire length of the area you want to illuminate. Yes, festoon lights can be connected or extended for longer installations, allowing you to customise the length of the light string to suit your specific needs. Here are a few methods for connecting or extending festoon lights:

Festoon lights often have different lighting modes, such as steady-on, flashing, or fading, allowing for customization based on the desired ambiance. They are commonly powered by electricity and can be connected to a power source using an extension cord or plugged directly into an outlet. However, solar-powered options are also available, utilising energy from the sun to power the lights. What Tools and Materials are Needed to Hang or Mount Festoon Lights? Guide Wire: Install a guide wire between two anchor points, such as trees or posts. Attach the festoon lights to the guide wire using hooks, clips, or cable ties. This method provides stability and allows for a straight, taut line of lights. Most people have trouble with fixing points farther away from the house, and that’s where installing posts or poles come into play. Done correctly, you can set up a sturdy pole with minimal effort. This lets you maximise your options and get the light pattern you want.Outdoor-rated Extension Cords: If you need to use extension cords to reach a power source, make sure to use outdoor-rated extension cords. These cords are designed to withstand outdoor conditions and have appropriate insulation and weatherproofing features. Ensure that the extension cords are in good condition and free from cuts or exposed wiring.

IP Rating: Look for festoon lights that have an appropriate IP (Ingress Protection) rating for outdoor use. The IP rating indicates the level of protection against dust and water ingress. For outdoor applications, it is recommended to choose festoon lights with a minimum IP44 rating or higher. This ensures that the lights are adequately protected against rain, splashes, and other weather conditions.Before starting the installation, review the manufacturer's instructions for the festoon lights and ensure you have the necessary tools and materials specific to your installation requirements. Additionally, consider the specific conditions and surfaces where you'll be hanging the lights to ensure you have the appropriate hardware and tools for a secure and safe installation. How to Determine The Appropriate Location for Hanging Festoon Lights?

Please refer to our T&C's for full warranty information. The warranty will be void on any product that has been modified in any way and all products need to be installed in accordance with the manufacturers instructions. Multiple Power Sources: In some cases, it may be more practical to use multiple power sources instead of extending a single strand of festoon lights. If you have multiple power sources available, you can start multiple strands of festoon lights from different power sources and connect them to create an extended installation. This method can be useful when covering a larger area or when power sources are distributed throughout the space. Secure with Multiple Attachment Points: Distribute the weight of the festoon lights by attaching them to multiple mounting points. This helps evenly distribute the load and reduces the chances of sagging or drooping. Avoid relying on a single attachment point for long stretches of festoon lights.

It is possible to suspend string lights from the side of a house or other outdoor structure or there may be trees or other tall supports outside that could make suitable fixing points. Metal hooks, eyes or C-clips can be attached to act as fixing points, just make sure that any hooks or clips are sturdy enough to hold the weight of lights and any support wires. Fixing points should be less than 8m apart if you’re not using support wires.
