Christmas Tree Lights Safety

Dec 12, 2010

Yes, we know that we normally talk about computer cables here at TriangleCables.com, but that doesn’t mean that they are the only type of cables or cords that exist.  That is especially true during the holiday season.  This is the time of year when cables for all sorts of decorations are literally all over the place.

Therefore, in the interest of safety, we wanted to give you a few tips to remember when it comes to your Christmas tree lights.  We don’t want to see anything bad happen to you during the most wonderful time of the year.

1)      Take some time to investigate your light strands, regardless of whether or not you’ve already hung them up.  Make sure that all the wires, bulbs, and connections are in good shape.  Any weakness in these cables may accidentally spark a fire.

2)      Never put electric lights on a metal tree or structure.  If the lights are faulty, the structure could become electrically charged and shock someone who touches the metal.

3)      Make sure to check the labels on your lights that you are using outdoors.  It is always good to know whether or not the lights you use outside are designed to endure the elements.

4)      Always unplug lights when you go to bed or leave the house.  A lot of people like to leave their lights on Christmas morning after they leave their house to go visit relatives.  Don’t do this as you don’t want an electrical short to ruin your holiday.

Hopefully with all of these tips you can keep yourself and your family safe this holiday season.
