OGCC Day 2 – Lightset Repair Gun

Lightset Repair Gun (Image courtesy Solutions) By Andrew Liszewski

OGCC Day 2 (Image property of OhGizmo)The whole burnt out Christmas lights thing has pretty much become a running joke for the holiday season but there’s a reason it’s still sort of funny year after year… because it’s true. No matter how well you pack the decorations away come January (or March, but only because of that court order!) when November or December rolls around there’s sure to be a few strands of lights that just won’t work.

But instead of replacing that old set with those fancy new ‘energy-efficient’ LED versions why not just spend a few seconds to simply fix the problem?

Now you don’t have to discard a string of non-working mini lights?just use this handy tool to detect and repair faulty bulbs. It sends an electrical pulse through the string and repairs problems associated with defective shunts, often the cause when an entire section of lights goes out. Easy to use?an LED in the tip makes it easy to work in dark areas. Also includes voltage detector with sound, bulb/fuse tester and bulb remover.

Though it’s probably too late to help with your decorating this year it’s never too late to start planning for the next. Get your own repair gun from Solutions.com for $24.95.

    Wow – what a handy tool to have. I'm definitely going to use it on my Christmas lights this year. Thanks for sharing!

    I've used this before! It was great. I had several strands of icicle lights that weren't working correctly. Found the offending bulbs and fixed it in no time.

    My fave Christmas light bulb tester is much cheaper and works just as well. Much better than the old trick of unplugging a bulb and plugging in a new one :)

    Wow this is a brilliant idea i havent seen anything like this before and looks like it could save me a fortune in christmas lights! like you said every year no matter how well you pack your christmas lights away or however well you store them there always seems to be a couple of stray lights that are broken.
