The Red Rope Lights is a set of miniature light bulbs encased in a red-tinted vinyl sleeve; they use 218 miniature incandescent light bulbs, and are designed to be hung up around doorways, poles, mantles, and similar surfaces.

 Size of product w/hand to show scale SIZE

Use this product as you would use any other strings of Christmas lights. Because they're thicker and a bit less flexible than traditional Christmas lights (due to their larger diameter), you may need to (well, PROBABLY need to) fasten them to the wall differently.

Plug them into any standard (in north America anyway) 110 volts to 130 volts household receptacle, and decorate with them as you might any other holiday light sets.

Because this is a 120VAC powered product, this section can and will be skipped.

This is a set of lights meant to be hung up and then not abused, not a flashlight designed to be thrashed, trashed, and abused. So I won't throw them against the wall, stomp on them, try to drown them in the toylet bowl or the cistern, run over them, swing them against the concrete floor of a patio, use a small sledgehammer in order to bash them open to check them for candiosity, fire them from the cannoņata, drop them down the top of Mt. Erupto (I guess I've been watching the TV program "Viva Piņata" too much again - candiosity is usually checked with a laser-type device on a platform with a large readout (located at Piņata Central), with a handheld wand that Langston Lickatoad uses, or with a pack-of-cards-sized device that Fergy Fudgehog uses; the cannoņata (also located at Piņata Central) is only used to shoot piņatas to piņata parties away from picturesque Piņata Island, and Mt. Erupto is an active volcano on Piņata Island {In the episode "Les Saves the Day...Again", Paulie Preztail says "Hey, ever wonder why this park's called 'Mount Erupto' anyway?", then Franklin Fizzlybear says "I think its an old native term. Means 'very safe.'"}), send them to the Daystrom Institute for additional analysis, or inflict upon them punishments that a flashlight might have to have performed on it. So this section of the web page will be ***SIGNIFICANTLY*** more bare than this section of the web page on a page about a flashlight.

In fact, those photographs and the spectrographic analysis below may be it.

I believe that these lights can be "daisy chained"; there is a pair of metal contacts (female in gender) on the end covered by a robust screw-on plastic piece. However, I'm as-of-yet uncertain exactly how these contacts should be used.

Test unit was purchased by my sister in Sacramento CA. USA sometime in September or early-October 2008. Since they aren't mine, the dreadful "" icon will appear next to their listings on this website at once.

Product was very likely made in China.
A product's country of origin really does matter to some people, which is why I wanted to publish it on this web page.
