Choosing the Right Clip to Hang Your Christmas Lights

May 12, 2023

Which Light Clip Do I Need? 

From DIY displays to professional installs, your Christmas lights will run straight and smooth once you discover which light clip is the right choice for you— with our help. 

 

Christmas light clips make all the difference for holiday lighting displays to look professional, clean, and festive year after year. Whether you’re searching for a multi-purpose clip like gutter or roof clips, a specific clip for C7/C9 light strings, or you need shingle tabs, the decision for which Christmas light clip to choose can pose as overwhelming among other seasonal stressors.  

 

Luckily, there’s a wide array of effective clips waiting for you this Christmastime to make perimeter and rooftop lighting run smooth and straight for installs of any size. It all starts with the kind of string light or bulb you’re working with and where you want the bulb’s orientation, which will then determine the right outdoor Christmas light clips needed to make your holiday lighting installation projects look their very best. Let’s get started.
