In this short how-to video, it comes in at just under four minutes, Nick demonstrates how to remove the end plug from a string of regular Christmas lights.
We received an email from Joe the other day asking us if there is a way to remove the female end from a string of lights and still keep it operational. Nick has used light strings with the end plugs removed in several of our Bottle Lamp Projects and we haven’t had issues with any of them.
The tools you will need for this project:
- Wire Cutter
- Wire Stripper
- Small Electrical Cap or Electrical Tape
Nick shows you how and where to cut the wires, what to do with the ground wire, how to cap the wires and more. You will be able to utilize the string of lights without the female end and you will be able to insert them into your recycled bottle without any trouble.
