View Full Version : What tools should I gather for Xmas lighting?

What are the common tools needed for this business? I have done some research and wanted to get input from others on what is good to have to get the job done. I was wondering if anyone uses orchard ladders to hang lights in trees. And what about using the "little giant" ladder until I can find a orchard ladder. And where do you guys get your extension cords and accessories etc.

I know a circuit tracer is handy, but are there brands to stay away from or functions I should look for in one? I just saw one at HD for like 30.00 bucks and was scared to buy it thinking thats just too cheap.

little giant 22, amp meter and line splitter. a good set of 6 cords each from 6 foot, 15 foot, 25's 50's. electric tape, binder clips. all-in one clips, extra bulbs. commercial light testing unit. there are thousands of things you need, but no time to list them here. busy busy ! dave g
