Greetings all. I've decided this should be brought to the attention of anyone using LED Rope light Snowflakes. I know some members put them on their roofs. I have discovered that 2 out of my 10 flakes have had some serious burning/heat/fire hazard issues. I won't mention suppliers/manufactures because they are generic, and everyone should take the time to double check yours regardless. Especially on the roof of your homes. Look for where the wires connect to the tubes themselves. I am all for Christmas lights everywhere- but not at the expense of any family's life. Here are some images of what I've discovered on mine. This was after I noticed one of the bulbs was giving a slight flicker doing my normal inspections. On another flake, there was condensation/moisture in the tube that was actually bubbling from the heat. You can see different areas that are black in the snowflake itself where the leds were fried. Be safe out there this season. 15 mins worth of inspections might make all the difference. My family comes from a long line of firefighters, and I know how quickly things can go from nothing to total loss from a simple 40 dollar light. Hopefully mine was just a fluke batch. Thanks for your attention.
