Where can I buy the clip light socket to attach to SPT2 wire? I am working on creating a pumpkin tower or arch for my front door, but each pumpkin will be lit individually, allowing me to control them with my 16 channel controller. Or, where can I buy the clip lights with the cord already attached, so I can just plug in to a custom SPT2 16-channel harness?

Thanks!

Thanks! Is there a separate clip that I should use to hold it in the foam pumpkins? Sorry if I'm asking stupid questions, but it's my first year doing anything with pumpkins and just want to make sure I'm buying the right stuff.

Thanks!

I've never used a clip of any kind to hold them in....I know Stoney has bought some individual lights that have clips on them.

I actually have used a strand of c-9 christmas lights and just removed the sockets and placed them where I needed them.
The thread describing that is here:

These are what I use and the cheapest Price I know of.

You have to buy them by the case 36 lot.

If you have a Dollar Tree near buy you can have them shipped there for FREE.

Since I already had a case of yellow C7 bulbs, I went ahead and ordered the SPT2 wire and C7 sockets from halloweenlightshow.com (Halloween side of christmaslightshow.com where I get some of my Christmas supplies from). Now, I just need to build the pumpkin archway and wire it up to the controller. Thanks for your feedback!

Anyone want some clip lights? I ordered a case form the Dollar Tree store, not really thinking about how much 36 *really* is.... I don't need nearly this many...
