Nothing initiates the holiday season quite like seeing Christmas lights strung around your home. By now, you understand how fantastic Christmas LED lights are for your budget, saving you a ton of money in electrical costs. With the investment you’ve made on your outdoor LED Christmas lights, you’ll surely want to do everything you can to protect them so you can reuse them again in a year.

Protecting Your Investment

Outdoor Christmas lights are amazing to look at, and for many, they’re also an important family holiday tradition. The problem is, there are some inherent dangers with leaving your lights outside, exposed to the elements. These simple tips will ensure your Christmas LED lights are better protected from some of the most common hazards they face.


The first thing you should do when setting up your LED Christmas lights is to understand the tripping hazard of dangling cords is dangerous for both you and your lights. Sure, you want to make sure you and your family are safe from tripping, but it’s also to ensure your lights don’t unexpectedly get pulled off from your home. Many bulbs have met their untimely demise in this very fashion. Don’t let it happen to yours.

Electrical overload

Overloading your Christmas lights is a quick way to fry your entire display. Luckily, this has a simple and straightforward solution: don’t plug all of your lights into a single power strip. Making the investment in a quality surge protector can go a long way in ensuring the safety of your Christmas LED lights.


Depending on where you live, you either are constantly struggling with squirrels chewing on your outdoor Christmas lights or you’ve never even thought of it. If you find yourself in the former group, create a homemade pepper spray out of water, onions, jalapeno, and cayenne pepper to help keep these pesky critters away from your lights.
