Replacement plugs
« on: February 27, 2022, 04:47:07 PM »
Does anybody know what these are called or how I can get a a replacement? Had a couple break off of my Christmas lights when I took them down. Wind was not my friend again this year

I had some of those with some 'snowfall' sequenced falling effect lights that I had a few years ago.

I don't know if mine still work.  they were sort of neat.  Saw them for the first time a decade ago on a huge bare maple tree in Wisconsin Dells during the holidays and was fascinated by them. 

I don't know if mine are still 'stored' above the garage or not.  I'll look tomorrow if I can, and let you know.  How many are you looking for?  Dale

2-4.   

I didnt know if they can be purchased or not. Clean break just after tension release.

I know there are different sizes and kinds. Some with nibs in them to help with alignment.

I did a image.google.com search of your image with the keyword outside lighting and found this link. Might be of some help.

Those are good for tapping or connecting existing wires. I need the one that goes into the power supply.

I haven't forgotten, but have been sidetracked with nice wx to get stuff caught up outside.

I'll try to get pix today at the latest.

David:
I had a heck of a time with my failing phone, but got this one somewhat fuzzy picture.

There certainly is this pair, and maybe two others if I can find them.  These have been out doors, so I cannot speak to the wire quality and all.

Does this look like what  you need?

Close, I will check the diameter of mine.
