The Easy Way to Hang Lights On Your Fence

A lot of people are going to be hanging their holiday decorations soon. There are definitely easy ways to do this and hard ways to do this.

When it comes to your fences, adding fence clips definitely counts as “the easy way.” Using staple guns or tape is more like the hard way–and some of those methods can be dangerous to boot. Just imagine running a metal staple through your wires on accident.

Take a look at this video from The Christmas Light Source. It will show you how light clips work. The video mostly focuses on the roof, but the principle is going to be the same.

As you can see, clips are a very safe, easy way to get your lights up. The Christmas Light Source also has a list of which clips work with each type of surface. You can view the list here.

They’ve got clips for gutters, trees, shrubs, and flower beds too.

They recommend the Quick Klip for your fences. There are, of course, other brands that you can use, but we liked their video and the design of their clips.

Adding your fence to your holiday decor is a great way to make your yard “merry and bright” this holiday season. Be safe, and have fun, as you hang all of your Christmas lights this year.

Don’t forget that we install fences as long as the ground hasn’t frozen over, even in winter. If you live in Mequon, Fox Point, Shorewood or anywhere else in the Milwaukee metro area, call us for a free quote. We may even be able to get your fence up in time to hold some holiday lights.

    Can I hang electric lights on a metal fence? Can I get electricuted if it rains if I’m touching the fence?

    I’d like to put Christmas lights around my pool vinyl fence. I do not want the clips you advertise that screw into the vinyl. Are there any other options or products? Thank you
