Ahh, it’s that time of year again. Time to climb up in the attic to retrieve the 47 boxes of Christmas Decorations that you have somehow accumulated over the years. How did I get this much stuff?! Here at the Moscato Household, Black Friday is our official “Put Up The Holiday Decorations Day”… except this year we had one little problem. Out of all of the strands of Christmas Tree Lights I own, guess how many worked perfectly?
Every single one of them had at least half of the bulbs blown out.
Maya Angelou once said “I’ve learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way (s)he handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights.” I think the same can be said for blown lights… especially when your only alternative is braving the insanity that is Black Friday Shoppers to purchase new lights – that work – to complete your Christmas Tree. However, thankfully I was given the opportunity to review the LightKeeper Pro from Ulta-Lit Technologies, and this day it not only saved our lights… but probably my sanity as well.
The Lightkeeper Pro fixes most light sets and pre-lit trees in seconds. It finds the damaged bulb at the plug or at the bulb socket. Audible continuity detector pinpoints the problem by tracing the circuit to the point of interruption. The 3-way bulb puller gets tight bulbs out with ease. Storage compartment built into handle for bulbs and fuses.
We put our LightKeeper Pro to the test this Black Friday… and it worked. I simply took out a bulb, stuck the socket in to the “Quick Fix Trigger” and pulled it a few times. Some sections took longer than others, but eventually all of our little twinkly lights were shining bright.
The LightKeeper Pro also has a voltage detector and bulb and fuse tester built in. And if you have stingy bulbs that wont come out of their socket, there is even a little hook you can use to help work them out. If all else fails, they even have the Ulta Lit Hotline available now through Christmas to help your lighting woes (888-ULTA-LIT available 9-5 CST M-F)
For just about what you will spend on one new set of twinkly lights, you can save your blown out strands with the help of the LightKeeper Pro. Order online or pick up at your local Home Depot.
Is your Christmas Tree up yet?
