We ordered the 2-Pack SUNTHIN 48ft String of Lights to decorate an outdoor wedding reception. The lights are on heavy wire and well made. I had ordered extra bulbs, but all the bulbs worked out of the box. The longer strings gave us much better options in how we strung them up. We were worried about what to use as poles, but we found some poles at Lowe's that were actually for the top rail of chain link fences. They make black chain link fence now, so they were painted black which looked much more finished than regular aluminum. They also had a loop cap in that same department that fit those poles. We also found some large metal states about three or four feet tall in the concrete department. We used a post hole pounder to drive the stakes and poles into the ground. The looped caps worked very well to run the zip ties and wires through to hold up the lights. It all went together much quicker than we thought, and it was very sturdy. It turned out so lovely. Wonderful lights for a summer party.
