Hey Everyone. Thanks for your replies. MY MISTAKE. They actually have 5 wires running threw them at each base. I was just wondering if there was a easy solution to make them "constant on" like GE has a line of their lights, from their website, surely you have all heard of these, I myself have at least several thousand feet of these in all types of sizes, C9, C7, C6, etc. From GE website, " Energy Smart® light sets are the premier LED light sets in the marketplace. With ConstantON® technology, your set continues operating even if an LED is burned out or loose. I just love these light string sets like this. I put around 1000 feet around a big maple in our front yard every year, toughest thing to do, I actually do this with a 20 foot pole and go around and around this huge tree, perfectly coming down at the same making way towards the bottom, everybody always ask , " How did you do that". Let me tell you, when you have o pole 20 feet in the air with a light string attached at the end and go around the tree, the slightest bump makes it feel as though someone is grabbing the end of the pole. Extremely difficult. Cant afford getting a lift for just the 1 tree. Also, I have noticed that the Energy Smart ConstantOn light do not come with several different types of effects. Just ON. But when they are up in my tree like this, if 1 goes out the others stay lit is the way to go. Because in this new technology with many effects, this is nice, but if ones goes out up towards the top it ruins it all, and you cant just reach up and take down that string or fix it. all to that point starting from bottom of tree would have to come down. Hopefully this is all making sense to you all. THANK YOU FOR YOUR HELP. Sure wish these newer lights strings were ConstantOn technology or could be converted. Dougg, I know exactly what you mean about the comment " The product manufacture and HomeDepot purposely designs components to fail prematurely so you will buy a replacement. It's just good business. " That is also almost everything purchased today, Cars, Appliances, etc. NOT trying to be judgemental, as we ALL have faults, but these same people who come up with these type of products today, which is considered " Good business" for them, also claim to be Christian, or believe in god and Jesus Christ, yet they have no care that they are doing this purposely, Do they or we really think that god does not know this? Do we not think for a second that he would say , why did you purposely and knowingly sell a product knowing it would only last so long, " Just for GOOD BUSINESS. HMMMMMM, This is a form of deceit and stealing no matter how we would try and justify it here. Christ cannot be fooled. Another question, anybody have a older Gemmy Carousel wheel, with the actual Christmas character, not the inflatable type? Thanks Jerry. I actually still have the Ferris wheel and the teeter totter BRAND NEW in box.
