Mains Festoon Lights E27 Screw Bulb Instructions

How-to: Festoon Bulb Installation

At Christmas Direct we want you to get the best use out of your purchase.  We’ve put together this handy guide to show you how to tighten your bulbs enough to get a good, weatherproof seal, without over tightening and damaging the set.

The main takeaway is Screw in the bulbs by hand until the bulb meets the seal, then tighten for another half turn only. This will ensure that the set is completely weatherproof without damaging the set through overtightening.

For more detailed instructions, please watch the video or check out the diagram below.
