Listen up guys and gals !

There is a tool to "fix" these mini lites now!

I got one at Ace Hardware and it is really slick !

It is called the "LightKeeper Pro" and it works like this:

You pull a lamp out of the dead section and plug the LKP into the socket. Plug the whole strand in and pull the trigger on the LKP a few times.

It supposedly "sets the shunts" in the dead bulbs. (Must be a capacitor kind of circuit that puts a current surge into the strand.)

Anyway, after a few shots, you unplug the whole mess and put a bulb back into the place your tool was.

Power up and replace the burned out ones and you are good to go !

It does work !

Merry Christmas ! and happy lighting !
