Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by varuscelli Lights Up My Entire 50x40 Foot Attic
I've been working on a rather extensive attic project in an older house we recently moved into. The attic is roughly 50 feet long and 40 feet wide and had only one pull-chain light at the attic entrance. I had temporarily strung lights on extension cords all over the attic so we could see what we were doing as we worked. That meant too many extension cords with light socket adapters, too many separate lights and cords, and too much dependence on flashlights and headlamps. I finally decided to invest in one of these Husky 50-foot, 5-socket Temporary String Worklights. It has made a tremendous difference in conveniently and efficiently lighting the attic space and took only a few minutes to set up in the attic
The cord assembly is first rate (durable and heavy duty). It is specified for both indoor and outdoor use by the manufacturer. The specs say to use no more than one 150-watt bulb per receptacle, so what I did was to go with a set of five Leviton twin-socket lamp holder adapters to split each socket from one to two sockets and picked up ten 23-watt compact fluorescent light (CFL) bulbs rated at 100-watt equivalent, then set up each socket with two of the CFL bulbs. Doing that made the actual light setup (two bulbs in each splitter) too large to fit the cages that came with the string worklight, but that was fine for my purposes. The entire setup puts out a tremendous amount of light, easily lighting the entire 50x40 foot attic, and with the CFL bulbs each socket stays relatively cool compared to higher wattage incandescent bulbs.
I highly recommend this product.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MountainHomeowner heavy duty even for outdoor use
I installed this to run from a second-story balcony to a tree in my patio. It lights my backyard and patio, and brings power to the patio 40 feet from the house. Although the product is sold "for indoor use only," my installation has survived rain, snow, and freezing for 4 winters and 4 summers, It is plugged into GFCI to prevent dangerous situations, but it has never tripped the GFCI. I could not be more pleased.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ibeme A Light to light up the dark
We are craft vendors and we attend fairs and festivals all over the state of Kentucky. Most of our events are outside and last until after dark. We have been depending on just the street lights for lighting up our tent and any other vendor next to us. Then last month we went to the Nibroc Festival and the vendor next to us was using the lighting string with 5 bulb cage and it lit up our tent as well.
We were so pleased with this that we came home and ordered one to use at future events. It is so handy with the cage guarding the light bulbs and makes it easy to replace any blown light bulb. The way the cages are made it provides us with optimal lighting which is a big plus for us. When we expand our tent size we are definitely buying more of these light sets.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by George Excellent product - does exactly what I wanted it to do. Fair pricing also.
This product was purchased to provide light in a garage/workshop adjacent to my home. The item does all that I wanted and does so neatly by also offering another source of power at the end of the cord, so that I'm able to lug in additional work items such as my router or drill press. I have no problem recommending this item to any other shopper, it is very good and strong and provides plenty of light.

Nice HD wire for the 50'. I wish the hooks were larger but we used large cable ties to hang the lights. Overall I would buy again.
