    Ok figure it out so at 4" spacing I'm looking at 16'6" but the mega tree kit is for 10' so how could I use this product for 16'

    If you wanted to use an S hook I would use a 2". A 1.5" is too small. The 2" can go in from the bottom and really stay hooked into the topper like it does on the Guy Wire Ring. Let me go find a 1.5" S hook and I'll take a comparison pic.

    This is a 2" and a 1.5" S hook. You can see how the 2" really has a lot to hook on the topper

    James, i am redoing the xlights single strand effect class. This is the effect that can do chases and such.
    Is there anything you might want added as a Nutcracker effect to support these ChromaCanes?

    Sean, that will be perfect! I love this community!

    Nothing at the moment stands out as being needed. I do have another project or two or three or four........ that might could benefit from an effect class. Can't say much right now the forum has ears.

    Thanks,
    James

    Been hovering again this off-season, but I wanted to comment on this. Your designs are really top-notch and well though out. That is all.

    Sean, for the new chase, for the Chromacanes, how about having a "width" wide wise that would treat it like a matrix a bit, or can the single strand do a matrix in it's width already?

    Thanks! Glad you like them. We will keep cranking out new stuff. There are a few more redesigned items as well as a few new ideas that we are playing with to solve other problems that we as decorators face to simplify life.

    Hi James,

    I love the look of the Chromacanes. I just have one comment, getting the pixels into the holes is a bit too tight. I really trashed my fingers pushing them through the holes, even with gloves on. Maybe a slightly larger hole would be easier to deal with. I purchased a set of thick leather gloves so I can do the second Chromacane once my hand heals, my right index finger has a pretty good scab on it right now.

    I realize there are different sizes of bullet pixels and you need to accommodate all of them but with the tabs on the pixels I think will be difficult to pull out, even at a slightly smaller size.

    Other than that, I love them. They are a very well made product.
    2014 - pretty basic static display
    2015 - lots of Blinky Flashy
    5 x Renard SS24
    2 x Renard SS16 for singing trees
    2 x e682 for around 2000 pixels
    2016 - Up to around 12,000 pixels and still wanting more.

    Thanks for the feedback. That hole size is a moving target. I have several samples here I work with and the smallest set barely grabs while the larger diameter ones are tougher to get in. A trick I can share with you is to get a deep socket from the tool box. I think a 1/2" works and if you place it on the front side of the cane and push the pixel into it, it will help. Are you pushing through both layers of the 10mm coro? When the body of the pixel goes through the first layer it can get tight as the body of the pixel seems to vary more than just the tip.

    I can open up the hole a bit more and just deal with the few people that have some small diameter pixels when it comes up. The 10mm coro definitely doesn't flex as much as the 4mm.

    Xlights noob here. I saw it was mentioned in this thread that bar effect and spirals work well. I applied both and they look OK on Chromacane 48s. Does anyone know any effects that work well for the chromacanes? Ideally it would be alternating red/white strips that follow the curve of the chromacane. chromacanes.PNG
