    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:

    Total feet of lights needed ÷ 2 = 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 53 feet of lights, you would order 27 sockets (53÷2=26.5, round up to 27)
