Marko writes: “This tool helps fix (or diagnose, at least) burned out miniature light bulb sets. I got one when a portion of our pre-lit tree went out. The first pull of the trigger solved the problem and allowed me to find and replace the burned-out bulb. At $15, it’s a bit more costly than a light set, but considerably less so than a whole tree.”
This is a great idea. Another piece of advice: Stow this tool in the box with the lights so you don’t end up losing it before next year.
We found street pricing starting around $20 now — that’s what we get for waiting until after Christmas and after the after-Christmas sales — but it still seems like a good deal to me.
