  • Longer lead or tail wire not available. There is 1 foot of wire at each end of the strand.
  • Custom cuts DO NOT come with a plug. They are intended to be hard-wired to a power source or have an electrician install a plug.
  • Cut ends must be sealed with an end cap and/or electrical tape to ensure proper seal to preclude entrance of water.

  • High quality PVC sockets form a snug, weather‐resistant seal around the bulb. You must keep a bulb in every socket to maintain weatherproof quality.

  • Install with sockets facing downward.
  • For spans longer than 20 feet (14AWG cord) or 25 feet (16AWG), use a steel cable guide wire.
  • Suspended socket has T-mold with mounting hole at top. For long-term reliability and easier installation, we suggest zip ties on each side of the socket. Read more about How to Hang Outdoor String Lights.

Below is the formula to figure out the quantity of sockets to order for the length you need (in feet). Once you have added the TOTAL number of sockets needed in the shopping cart, indicate the details of the strand(s) you need in special instructions box above. See examples below.

Total length needed ÷ 2 = Quantity of sockets to order*

80' 40 $160.00
150' 75 $300.00
200' 100 $400.00

Add the TOTAL number of sockets needed in the shopping cart, then indicate in the instructions box above the details of each strand length needed. See examples below.

Sockets Ordered Details in Special Instructions Yields
60 1 strand=20 sockets; 1 strand=40 sockets One 40 ft strand and one 80 ft strand
250 1 strand=50 sockets; 2 strands=100 sockets each One 100 ft. strand and two 200 ft. strands

*If your answer is not a whole number, round up to the nearest whole number. For example: If you need 53 feet of lights, you would order 27 sockets (53÷2=26.5, round up to 27)

    string lights custom length

    This custom string lights recently purchased appear to be of much greater quality than the box store lights I looked at. Appear to be better sockets, better cord and 14 ga wire-thicker than the local string wire I saw.

    Custom Light Strands were perfect

    I recently purchased custom light length light strands from Party Lights. The custom lengths worked perfectly and the quality of the materials is excellent. I would highly recommend this company.

    String lights

    Very good quality commercial grade lights. The bulbs actually seal around the socket to prevent water infiltration. Thick cord 14 gage wire. Use cable support to tie the lights to prevent sag. I used 1/16 stainless cable with black pvc coating (buy on Amazon) to support lights. Every light lit on power up. Buy on reel so you can customize the installation. I purchased a reel with 70 sockets. Keep in mind that this is a hard wired installation. Buy the caps to terminate the end that is not tied in to the power source. Use heat shrink not electrical tape to isolate the wires before you seal it ugp. Will last and endure the environment. So far very pleased with it.
