Check Your Christmas Lights for Safety Standards

When did you last check your Christmas light to make sure they were safe?

Even if your Christmas lights are new, you should check them to make sure they are in excellent condition. Age is not the criteria; condition is the important factor.

  • Inspect your lights
  • Look for frayed wires
  • Love for cracked or broken sockets
  • If anything looks wrong, throw them away
  • Do inspections every year
  • Lights are inexpensive
  • When in doubt, don't use them; replace them
  • Look for the UL mark when buying lights
  • UL stands for Underwriters Laboratories
  • A UL mark means they meet the testing organization's safety standards

Safety is the most important issue when checking over your Christmas lights. It's better to be safe than sorry.
