These stringers are sold by the socket. To calculate quantity needed, divide length (feet) by 4. For instance, if you need 40 feet, order 10 sockets (40/4 = 10). Round to the nearest whole number if necessary.
There is 2 foot of lead and tail wire. Longer leads are not available.
Maximum run is 860 watts. For 7 watt bulbs, you can order up to 123 sockets (492 ft.) and for 10 watt bulbs up to 86 sockets (344 ft.).
The cord will come with a male and female plug.
If one bulb burns out, the rest stay lit.
Manufactured with 18 AWG wire and high-quality sockets.
Indoor or outdoor use.
Footage Calculator Not sure how many sockets to order? Here's a quick formula to figure out the quantity of sockets you should order based on the total number of feet you need:
48” spacing: Total feet of lights needed ÷ 4 = Quantity of sockets to order*
*If your answer is not a whole number, round up to the nearest whole number. For example: If you need 50 feet of lights with 48” spacing, you would order 13 sockets (50÷4=12.5, round up to 13)
