View Full Version : Can I do this

I have 2 strings of 10 candy canes w/ about 50 lights each string. Cut I cut each individual cane and just put a plug end on the end to make 20 separate channels?

That depends on how they are wired. If when you pull a bulb from 1 candy cane the others stay lit, you can separate them.

I would not do that. If each string is 50 lights they are most probably 2.5 volt bulbs.If there is 50 lights and 10 candy canes then there is 5 lights per cane. Thats only 15 volts per cane. If it is attatched to its own channel with 120 volts, you will see a really bright flash and then have a bunch of light bulbs to replace. You could restring them with ten light sockets and replace the bulbs with 12 volt bulbs and should work fine.
