Frequently bought together:


Now you can get the specific length you want of our commercial grade string light! Create a professional looking outdoor space with this heavy-duty string light cord in custom lengths that perfectly fit your space! See below for complete product specifications (specifically 14AWG vs. 16AWG).

Note: Longest single length is 165 sockets (330 feet). For single or mutliple lengths totalling close to this, consider a full 330 foot Bulk Reel.

Custom orders typically ship in 1-2 weeks. If your order is time sensitive, contact us for current availability.

*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.

Cord Specs:

  • SOCKET SIZE: Medium / E26 base
  • SOCKET SPACING: 24 inches
  • LEAD/TAIL WIRE: 12 in. / 12 in.
  • GAUGE: 14AWG SJTW 2-wire or 16AWG SPT 2-wire
  • CONNECTION: No plugs
  • MAXIMUM RUN: 1800 watts (14AWG) or 1200 watts (16AWG)
  • MAX WATTAGE PER SOCKET: Up to 25 watt bulbs
  • RATING: RoHS compliant & IP64 Rating (14AWG) and ETL certified wire (16AWG)

Product Details:

  • Custom cut orders are nonreturnable and nonrefundable.
  • Bulbs sold separately
  • These cords are sold by the socket. To calculate quantity needed, divide length (feet) by 2 (see examples on Footage Calculator tab above).
  • 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 (14AWG cord), 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 (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.
  • Technical Installation Instructions

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 $220.00
150' 75 $412.50
200' 100 $550.00

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 of 60 sockets One 120 ft strand
250 1 strand of 50 sockets; 2 strands of 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)

    Well Made Light String

    Posted by Brian J. O'Grady on Apr 23rd 2022

    This is a heavy duty light string that is of heavy gauge materials. I expect it will last outdoors for several years or more. It is expensive compared with other heavy duty/commercial strings available on Amazon. It may be better quality though.

    string lights custom length

    Posted by Murray b Rine on Aug 16th 2021

    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.

    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.
