This thing is cool

http://www.lightkeeperpro.com/

I usually am pretty skeptical(imagine that) about stuff like thism but this thing works. I spent two hours the before replacing lights. Bought this yesterday and was done in 10 minutes with everything lit. Highly recommended!!!! Best $20 I've spent in a long time.

Yep...it was a display tree. Must have sensitive bulbs. Remember, I saved $600+ so I can buy a lot of bulbs for that. Most lit using this tool. Somehow it fixes the shunts. Probably catch on fire now.

Now you tell us! Last week Jody replaced maybe 150 bulbs to get her brother's pre-wired tree working. She's patient/stubborn -- I'd have thrown the damn thing in the pond. When a bulb goes out it increases the load on the other bulbs, then another one goes out, more current to the others, and pretty soon you've got a whole section of dark tree. Her fingers were really sore from changing all those bulbs.

Good job, that's more lights than I put up. I hate Christmas lights, you put them away and they're all working, you pull 'em out the next year and half of them have died....screw 'em.
