1 Solution stringing Christmas lights backward

1 Solution for ''After I strung lights on my 25-foot Christmas tree and went to plug them in to the extension cord from the house I discovered that I had 2 female ends so I thought I the solution was to to run the extension to the top of the tree and plug in to the other end of the lights When I did this I ended up again with two female plugs at the bottom. I went to Menard's and was told that there is no adapter that has two male ends. Is there a solution other than restringing the entire tree''

    I know this answer is very late, but for anyone else who stumbles upon this page from Google, don't make a double male cord! They are dangerous and a fire hazard, and no stores will sell them because they are illegal. When you plug one male end into the wall, the other will have live electricity in its prongs at all times. Even if you plug it into the wall last, your dangling male plug at the end of your christmas lights will now have live electricity. Besides just redoing the lights, your only other option is running an extension cord from the male end of your lights back to your wall socket.

Hello Sir,
Make two extension wires (Length of wire depends on your requirement) with both ends punched with male plugs. You can also have it done at your own if you are a little familiar with electric components (only recommended in case you are "used to it" or "a Professional"). Else you need to go to any hardware/electrical shop.
Plug in the male port(s) in the female port(s) at the tree end and on the other end in 110volts AC supply.
Thats all that you need.

Best of Luck, Rate my solution,If i'm helpful Waqar.

How do i fix christmas tree lights

Assuming the wires to be good, if the string of lights consists of more than one section (for example, a string of 100 lights is made up of two sections of 50 lights each) and the lights of only one section are out, you have a bad bulb (or possibly more than one) that must be located and replaced. If your light string is only a single section set (a set of 50 or 35 or 10), it's most likely also a bad bulb but it could also be one of the fuses located in the plug. Light sets come with a few replacement bulbs and usually two fuses. Take the plug and slide open the little compartment door and you'll see them. Replace them and try the set. If it still doesn't work, it's a bad bulb. On multiple-section sets, the fuses in the plug power all the sections, so a working section eliminates the fuses as suspect.

Call Everstar customer service 1800 833-3390 They do NOT have a website. I think because they are a bunch of retired christmas elves without internet service.

We purchased an Everstar pre-lit Christmas Tree and we can not locate the manual or instructions that came with the tree any help since half the tree doesn't light up and all the plugs are plugged in....

Millie, Get an extension cord. Unplug all of the plugs, then test each one individually with your extension cord. You may have just one cord that is bad, and you can isolate it this way. It is probably a blown fuse in that one set. The male end of the bad set (the end with the two metal prongs) probably has a plug that pulls apart to reveal two small fuses inside. Look at the plug closely, it isn't obvious that it opens. The fuses are little glass cylinders with a metal cap on each end. If you can't tell by looking at the fuses if they are blown, then you can switch them with other known good fuses to be sure before you go search for new fuses. Good luck and Merry Christmas. Al K

Artificial Christmas tree comes in 3 parts A B C

You can probably find instructions online, depending on the maker. What kind/brand of tree is it? Do each of the power cords plug into the next one down, or is there a large multi-tap outlet somewhere (either halfway up the tree or at the base)?

We purchased an Everstar pre-lit Christmas Tree and we can not locate the manual or instructions that came with the tree any help since half the tree doesn't light up and all the plugs are plugged in....

I have a 3 piece Everstar 7/12 slim pine and here are the plug portion of the assemblly instructions . "1) connect the plug(A1) of string with the end cord (B1) of string. 2) Insert the plug (B2 & C1) of string into the wall outlet. 3) After the plugs are plugged into the wall outlet your entire tree should be lit. If some bulbs do not light, search for any loose plugs, broken, loose or missing bulbs that may have caused the problem."
My illustration shows the A1 in the top section of the tree while B1 is in the middle section. Both the middle section and bottom section get plugged into the wall or extension cord. Hope this helps
