Some safety advice about installing lights31st Mar @ 15:12 Firstly, lower voltage LEDs are safer than high voltage bulbs or incandescent lights as they do not heat up and pose a fire risk. This advice is for indoor lights only, take extra precaution when installing exterior or commercial lights and always read any package instructions.
Check all contents of box
Make sure that the plug/transformer is intact and that it matches the description and fits with your lights. Ensure that everything labelled on the box is contained within.
Switching lights on
Don’t turn on or plug in lights whilst they are still in any packaging – whether plastic, paper or card. Make sure they are set up in the correct place before switching on (unless purely to check the wiring works. If this is the case, be sure to unplug again before placing lights).
If placing lights higher than arm’s reach, use a ladder and ensure that it is secure before climbing.
Try to make sure each LED is facing out for brightest light, or randomly spaced for an interested visual effect.
Don’t allow children to play with lights; they are not toys.
Do not attempt to connect two sets of lights together by cutting or wiring sets together.
Disconnect lights when not in use.
