Trim-it-Quick lighting systems are easier to use and provide better results than traditional string lighting. Unlike anything else on the market, Trim-it-Quick lighting systems are based on a revolutionary ?hook-strand? design that provides full, uniform coverage from the inside out ? from the trunk of the Christmas tree to the tip of each branch. These hook-strands are made up of individual light strings that originate at a hub, the center of the tree, and are spread outward along or around each branch to its end. This system provides lighting throughout the tree, instead of just around the surface. A multi-port extension cord, which runs from the base of the tree up through the center, near the trunk, ties the system together and allows for many lighting configurations. This kit provides everything you need to light a Christmas tree up to 8 ft., bushes and shrubs or any other area in or around the home.
