911 for Christmas Lights
“It’s the most wonderful time of the year” as the song goes. Most of you have probably put the time into decorating the rooms of your house, tree, maybe even the outside of the house. I am willing to bet some of you out there let out a few curse words when testing your Christmas lights too. And then proceeded to spend hours trying to determine what bulb was bad. Times like that make investment in sets of longer-lasting LED lights quite appealing.
If you have reached the end of your proverbial Christmas light rope make sure Santa gets one of these gadgets in your stocking for future use: the Light Keeper PRO, $26.99 on Amazon. Since miniature Christmas lights are wired in a series when one goes that whole batch goes. This gun shaped device contains a voltage detector which determines where the flow of electricity stops. Simply scan along the strand and the audible tone will alert you to the bad bulb. Once you find the culprit use Light Keeper to test the fuse and bulb. If the light ‘shunt’ is at fault simply pump the gun a few times to send an electrical pulse to clear the shunt and let electricity flow again. The Light Keeper PRO contains an LED headlight for repairs in dark places and a spare bulb storage compartment too. Don’t spend hours this holiday season determining which bulb is on the fritz! Let Light Keeper PRO do the work.
