  • About my display
    Just starting to get into the addiction, 32,000 lights, lots of handmade stuff, want to be the crazy light guy everyone talks about
  1. I used somewhat same method as Paul D, except I used a T post and ran a u-bolt around it and through the unistrut, they have the nuts on springs for unistruts to run bolts through, bolted the controller to that, so only way to access any bolts to undo contoller is by cutting lock on cover to get inside, then need tools to loosen up, need a truck to pull T-post out of ground, so that's not going anywhere, by then my yard sensors have gon off and there better be a good reasomn for being in yard
  2. Can't see your display, pic won't come up so I don't know if this is out of question but I have shepard hooks with lights hanging fromthem as kind of a makeshift fence, also doesn't make it so easy for people to wonder intto your display, alos did one of the northpoles out of pvc and striped it, looks awsome when done
  3. This is the first year we have collected for a charity, a close family friend has a beautiful 2 year old girl with down syndrome, so we are collecting for the utah down syndrome foundation, didn't think about contacting them but didn't think it would be a good deal, maybe will call them on Monday, think the hardest part was comin up with way it would be secure, ended up buying a big lockable mailbox and welded 1/4 inch thick steel base and a steel tube to box so I can run cable through it and around my tree, sos far so good and everyone has left it alone, about $100 so far this season
  4. Looks good, I have the same sled and reindeer flying over my driveway, if you want the rudoph on front I just wired in a regular light bulb socket and screwed it to the nose and put in the brightest red bulb I could find, I would stay away from runnin somethin over road if it was me, I would put it at front of driveway
  5. Rab would love for you to come by, you won't be dissapointed, my street is wakefield way(5900 west off of 6200 south) also heard santa supposed to be here around 7:30
  6. Well hello to you, also in utah, west jordan to be exact, let me know if. Your ever in the area, static display but it won't disapoint, little over 32,000 lights and a 20' inflatable snowman and a lot of handmade decore
  7. Was hangin out tonight and to our surprise a huge group of carolers came to the door, this is first time this has happened, but loved it, love this time of year, best part they all complimented on display, gonna try LOR next year
  8. They were just kids, probly about 10 or so, the ones who slashed my snowman were much older, so tired ofhavin stress about displays, I do try to stay on posative side, had a cop stop last night and thank me for everything and said how much his family loves them, everyone one has been wonderfull and helpfull, guess that's what keeps me going
  9. So just came home from work and I was watching everything turn on out my window when I see about 5 kids standing directly infront of yard, ever get that feeling that someone is up to no good, I've got about 30 shepard hooks around my perimeter of yard with lights hangin from them so its not just a free for all to walk in, so watching these darling little angels when the first one darts under lights an runs up to my santa sleigh and proceeds to make obscene gestures at him, out the door I went and all they could say was sorry, I just want to rip all of there hair out, never had any trouble till

  11. I've posted a sign in my yard describing what happened to my inflatable and please have a heart and that a lot of time and money was invested, I now have cameras but don't want to advertise about them causei figure 3 things,1-they leave it alone, 2- they become more determined cause its now a challenge and really wreck things, 3- they wear. A ski mask and a camera does no good
  12. I've allways thought about trip lines plus layin a piece of plywood with sheet rock screws through it, that way you know when someone is somewhere they shouldn't be, but sad thing is is that I would be the one to get sued
  13. This just sucks, we've never had a problem with vandals till this year, I ordered a 20' inflateable snowman last year and just got him about 3 weeks ago, put him up day before thanksgiving, but didn't turn on till thanksgiving, then next night someone slashed him, spent 3 1/2 hours that night sewing him up just to prove that they wouldn't ruin christmas spirit, took everything I had not to take everything down, no whave a bunch of cameras plus put a sign in front yard describing the 2 boys and car they were seen driving away in and pleading with everyone to please have a heart and leave all of
  14. I use binder paper clips around my windows, just clip it to the lights and to the j channellaround your windows, holds perfect and is easy to take down and causes no damage, all of my lights are double stranded and have never fallen down
