Re: Mega Tree Strands....
Mine are three color and they are a loose weave. I use a cable tie at each end. As all the string are from the same manufacturer and the same length, the sockets lined up together just fine.
I one were ever to fail, I would just unweave. I bought a few extra of each color for this potential problem. Additionally, I made up two extra for a quick replacement during the season if there were a failure.
