Frequently bought together:


Customizable lengths of this commercial grade string light cord make it perfect for fitting any space you need! Get any length, or multiple lengths, up to 330 feet of outdoor string lighting to be enjoyed year round! See below for complete product specifications (specifically 14 gauge vs. 16 gauge cord differences).

Step 1 - Choose CORD COLOR from dropdown menu.
Step 2 - Determine the number of SOCKETS you need. With 24" socket spacing, take your total length (feet) and divide by 2 (round up to the nearest even number) for the number of sockets you need to order. See Footage Calculator tab below for further assistance.
Step 3
- Enter your TOTAL number of sockets needed in the QUANTITY field below (field just above Add to Cart button). 
Step 4
- If you need multiple custom-cut lengths, enter the number of sockets needed on each strand in the INSTRUCTIONS box (e.g., 1 strand 14 sockets & 1 strand 30 sockets). 

• Custom-length cords are priced per socket.
• Lead and tail wire lengths cannot be customized (we cut exactly between two sockets). 
• Plugs are not included, but are available for 16 gauge options and can be purchased separately.
• Longest single length is 165 sockets (330 feet). For single or mutliple lengths totalling close to this or longer, consider an entire 330 foot Bulk Reel.

*The key differences between the two cord options is the 14AWG cord allows you to run longer lengths, and it has a bit heavier duty wiring. The benefit to the 16AWG cord is it's robust enough for commercial use but light enough for easy installation (about 1/2 the weight of the 14AWG wire). Both cords provide heavy-duty construction and weather resistant sockets.

Product Details:

  • Longest single length available is 330 feet (165 sockets).
  • 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 secured with liquid tape or heat-sealed to ensure proper seal to preclude entrance of water.
  • For indoor or outdoor use. Suitable for permanent outdoor installation.
  • 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.
  • For IP64 rating, any cut ends must be sealed with an end cap and/or electrical tape (ensure proper seal to preclude entrance of water).
  • Install with sockets facing downward.
  • For spans longer than 20 feet, use a steel cable guide wire.
  • Socket has two mounting ears on each side of the base. 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*

Feet Needed Sockets to Order Price
80' 40 $140.00
150' 75 $262.50
200' 100 $350.00

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)
