DON’T BE A GRISWOLD! TIPS FOR SAFELY DECORATING THE 
OUTSIDE OF YOUR HOUSE LIKE A PRO
 
‭

Conveniently decorate your home and trim your tree this holiday season while ‬
keeping your home and yourself safe.

‭ Fire and electrical hazards are more common during the holiday season with trees, ‬
cooking and electrical decorations. The Home Depot allows you to enjoy the season 
by preventing the home against holiday hazards ahead of time.

Safe Securement: Make sure your decorations stay in place throughout the season.  ‬
‭Command Hooks maintain a strong hold without holes, sticky residue or stains. 
‬Fasten your decorations with flair with t‭he VELCRO Holiday Tape, which serves dual ‬
purpose both as decorative ribbon for your projects and as a reusable fastener.

Holiday decorations do’s and don’ts:

Learn how to keep lights cool, dry and twinkling.

‬‭ Prevent overpowering: When hanging lights outside of the home or stringing lights ‬
on the tree, it’s easy to overload the circuit by connecting too many light strands 
together. Instead, use ‭a power strip‬ with ‭an extension cord‬. Inspect and monitor your
outlets often to avoid problems like overheating, loose connections and corrosion.

o‭ There is a limit to how many strands of lights you can link together end to ‬
end. The best way to figure out the limit is to add the listed string 
wattages together. The recommended maximum is about 210 watts. For 
example, t‭he EcoSmart Warm White LED Light Set has 9 watts, so you ‬
could connect up to 23 strings. Try not to exceed this in a single circuit, 
because it may lead to overloading and heating.

‭ Plastic v. Metal: Only use plastic or plastic-coated fasteners and clips to hang ‬
holiday lights. Metallic fasteners, nails and staples can conduct electricity.

‭ Power Down: Always unplug lights before leaving the house and before going to ‬
sleep. Use ‭a 24-Hour Plug-In Basic Timer to automatically turn lights on or off.

‬
‭ Or you can plug your tree or lights into the Belkin WeMo Switch and sync to ‬
t‭he Amazon Echo ‬or‭ Amazon Tap to turn electronics on or off with a simple ‬
voice command. 
‭

Aiming High: Stay safe while hanging your decorations from the highest branch, ‬
tallest perch or roofline. 
o‭ The Gorilla Ladders 5.5 ft. Aluminum Hybrid Ladder is perfect for indoor ‬
and outdoor projects and has 3 times the step depth of traditional ladders,
providing a safe, secure and comfortable place for you to stand while you 
trim your tree.

o‭ Safely and easily swap out even the highest light bulbs with the Bayco 11 ‬
‭ft. Pole Light Bulb Changer Kit.
