For the trickiest installations, Big Star Lights invented the ultimate adhesive clip. Made of durable transparent polycarbonate, it is discrete and suitable for year-round use. These clips are designed to hold SPT-2 wire, but can also support other decor including garland and minilights. Sockets on the SPT-2 wire can sit in one of two orientations. If perpendicular orientation is not required, the top tabs can be clipped off, making it even more discrete.
The adhesive is made from 3M VHB tape, guaranteeing a strong bond with painted metals, plastic, smooth finished wood, and glass, and the soft conformable foam molds to irregularly shaped surfaces. The tape's temperature range is –40°C to 95°C (-40°F to 200°F) and it resists moisture, UV, solvents and plasticizers. Always test a small surface before committing to a project. Adhesive can only be applied once for maximum strength. Optional stainless steel screws are sold separately that can be used instead of the adhesive for affixing the clips to wood surfaces (the adhesive can be left on the clip with the backing left in place).
These clips are not designed for seasonal use, and should not be used on painted surfaces.
