1Before you hang it, inspect it
Carefully inspect all electrical decorations before you use them. Cracked or damaged sockets and/or loose or exposed wires can cause serious shock or start a fire.
2Decorate that tree with LEDs
Consider purchasing LED lights, which use less energy and run cooler than traditional incandescent lights.
3Leave the bending to yoga
Never mount or support light strings in a way that might damage the cord’s insulation.
4Pinch pennies, not cords
Make sure that cords are not pinched in doors, windows or under heavy furniture, which could damage the cord’s insulation.
5Unplug before you unscrew
Always unplug electrical decorations before replacing bulbs or fuses.
6Dream in the dark
Turn off all indoor and outdoor electrical decorations before leaving home or going to sleep.
