These lights represent dripping icicles and create a much more pleasant effect than the usual blinking seasonal ornaments. Each icicle is a different length which enhances the effect of being natural. Within each icicle are white LED lights which light up in sequence from top to bottom, presumably suggesting dripping water.
The icicles are mounted by means of a clip that opens up to 1 1/2 inches and has slightly serrated teeth at the end for a better grip. The icicles are attached to their clips by a 'pan and tilt' joint that allows you adjust them to point downwards. The joint has detents so it only allows adjustment in steps, so it is not always possible to point the icicles exactly downwards.
There is an electrical plug at one end and a socket at the other allowing you to connect together more than one set- up to eighteen, according to the instructions.
The instructions gloss over the installation of the lights. The design of the clips is such that the teeth will not grip properly to anything over much one inch thick and certainly not 2x boards which are 1.5 inches thick. Anything less than one inches reduces the grip, which is only just adequate at best.
If you happen to have a one inch thick board projecting out or downward from the house, installation would be quick and easy. In my case, and probably most other houses, there was no such board. The best solution would be to cut a one inch square by seven foot strip from stud lumber with a table saw and then screw it under the eaves, painting to match, then remounting the lights each year would be a breeze.
My house has a metal roof which slightly overhangs, so the lights were attached to that. Unfortunately the clips did not have adequate grip and the lights fell down. However by placing a one inch cube of wood inside each clip I was able to securely mount the lights.

These are absolutely lovely holiday icicle lights! Beautiful, peaceful and quality made! The 8 icicles come in 3 lengths of 7", 9" and 11". The different lengths are a real plus over other icicle sets that are all the same size. These are a lot more visually interesting and natural appearing. The icicles are a thick plastic resin and should be very durable. Plus, the facets and prisms on the face of each icicle cast a wonderful effect in daylight as well as night light. Each icicle has an LED light at the top that stays on even when it's cascading or chasing. The overall length of the strand is 7' which means it doesn't cover much distance and it could be quite expensive to do an entire house in these. The strands can be linked together up to 18 sets of the same light. If you're adding a different type of light strand to this one you do want to be careful to calculate the wattage so you stay within the strands capacity which is included on the instructions. Because they're LED the wattage draw is quite small at 12 watts.The biggest plus to this set is the versatile clip-mount brackets. The clamps extend quite wide to 1-1/2" and the universal joint allows you to adjust the icicle to align with any angle of the facia or rake boards of your house. I love the clip feature because my house is newer and I'm not crazy about putting a bunch of nails in my house just yet. My only complaint is that these are the brighter white or cool white LEDs. The cool light hue doesn't compliment the warmer white lights I already have tons of. I wish there was a warmer LED light option for this light string. If there was I'd re-do my entire house with these - they're so lovely!

This is a very attractive holiday icicle light set that adds a very authentic wintery touch to your home no matter where you live. The lights in each icicle cascade down to the tip, creating a pleasant holiday touch.
The video in this review shows the lights in action as well as an overview of the simple installation process.
This set of lights simply clips onto the fascia or eave board and then plugs in to a 110V outlet. You can connect up to 18 sets of these lights together which will span around 125’ of the outside of your home or deck or whatever else you want to use them on.
A universal joint at the top of each light ensures that they all hang vertically light a proper icicle would and the lights looks and feel substantial and well made.
The manufacturer recommends using them for a maximum of 90 days and if you plan to use them on a tree, it is recommended that the tree is fresh with no brown needles or leaves.
The lights come with a spare fuse for the 110V plug.

A well built set of icicle lights although a bit short in overall length at 7 feet. You can connect up to 17 sets at the maximum 214 watt rating of the string plug.
The light affect is beautiful and quite realistic chasing effect; it does resemble sparkling icicle.
The icicles vary in length from 7 inches to 11 inches in length.
The hanging clip is really a great design. You can hang these lights from just about anything from tree branches to gutters and fascia boards.Each icicle has a holding clip mounted to it and the spring tension of the clip has good holding power keep the icicle in place. Icicles are spaced about 12 inches apart
Two items I will point out; 1) the power brick - although not extremely large, can present a problem for concealing and 2) no setting or adjusting of the light show.
The lights are outdoor rated.
- beautiful realistic effect
- energy efficient at only 12 watts per string
- well designed mounting clip makes it super easy to install and remove
- power brick although about the size of a single D size battery can be difficult to conceal
- no option to change the icicle light effect
- unusually short for a light string at 7 feet
Overall a nice set of decorating lights.

This a very nice 8-light set of shooting star LED icicle lights, to which you can connect up to 18 more sets of these same lights or also other LightShow brand lights, for a maximum of 216 Watts. These LED lights are energy efficient and can last up to 20,000 hours. I've only tried them out for a few hours so far, as it's a bit too early yet to decorate for the winter holiday season, and they performed well during those few hours. The lights appear to be well made and each one has a sturdy clip to hang them up by and the clips also have a swivel piece which allows you to attach the lights at any angle (see my pictures). Altogether, one set of lights is 7 feet in length. Like real icicles, the lights are not all the same length. The set alternates between a long and a short light, so you get four longer lights and four shorter lights in a set. These lights can be hung up both indoors and outdoors. It remains to be seen if they will last more than one winter holiday season, but based on their quality so far I have high hopes.

Really nice looking lights and durable. It’s a bit early to put them on the outside of my home but I tested them in my garage where I could turn off the lights. I did have some extra guttering in my garage and they clipped very easily.
What I like:
• They are beautiful in the dark. Their light pattern gives a ‘falling light’ effect that really does look nice. The lights themselves look great. They are different lengths to make them look more realistic.
• They are bright without being harsh. Just the right brightness.
• The clips work great and twist in just about any direction you need. Good design.
• These are very durable. It would be tough to break these unless they land on concrete from up high and even then I wouldn’t be surprised if they survive the fall. You also don’t have to worry about scratching off any type of paint/finish that some lights have.
• Indoor/Outdoor. These look awesome inside your home at night. I also ran these in the basement on a built in shelf. Very cool looking.
What I don’t like:
• To me the price is a bit high for 8 lights. That price could add up fast if you are running these across your home.
These are great lights and if you have the funds they will look wonderful on your home. I recommend.

This string of Shooting Star Clip Lights is a good quality and fun piece of Christmas decoration. It measures approximately 7ft in length and includes 8 icicle shaped lights. The lights are of three different sizes of 11, 9 & 7 inches but the glass part that lights up measured about half an inch less.
Each light comes with its own oversized & hinged clip that's really versatile as it allows adjusting the angle to make sure the icicles are perfectly vertical. I put those to the test by attaching them to the gutters above our garage and they hold up really well.
The light color is white and I really wish if they made a warm white version which I prefer. The chasing & shooting star light effect is beautiful to watch but be prepared to purchase a few more sets as 7ft is not much when it comes to Christmas decoration. Of course they are linkable so you can add more on the same circuit.

The 8-Light LED Icicle String Lights are very bright and absolutely stunning. The entire length of each Icicle Light illuminates in a "chasing" fashion and looks spectacular. The three different sized icicles of 11 in., 9 in., and 7 in. give a true three-dimensional appeal to decorating. They are large and substantially well-made lights. They aren't thin and dinky at all. I love how the crisp, clean white lights dance in sequence. It's so beautiful to watch. The attached clips are simply marvelous. The jaws are strong and sturdy. Each jaw on the clip opens up to 1 & 1/2", giving you plenty of leeway to attach the lights just about any place you desire. The clip is also adjustable and rotates up and down in several different ways. It's very versatile. I measured the string of lights outside against the house and it measured the perfect width of a single car garage door. They would also be gorgeous hanging from the roof line or around the windows. The LED lights are very distinctive even when viewing from a long distance.
