Christmas Lights Unlimitedis the 1st "USA Christmas Lighting Company" in recent times to start manufacturing Made in the USA Christmas Lights again in the USA. General Electric "GE" was the first company to manufacture Christmas Lights in the USA, then they outsourcing them and as a result Christmas Lights were imported.
Christmas Lights Unlimited Lights will be "Made in the USA" for our "Made in America Christmas Lights". Products will include LED Mini-Lights, LED C9 Lights and will have water-tight connections that have Glow-Tech Extension Cords (prevents overheating) designed for wet locations, snow, salt, heat and more.
Products have been tested in the Jacksonville Beach, FL area for the past ten years.
All products are made with high grade USA materials with safety in mind for everyone. These products are currently available to our large clients.
The "American Made Christmas Lights" are for permanent installation, as we test them. The "US Made Christmas Lights" are not currently sold to the average consumer or other Christmas Light Installers until all "Made in the USA Christmas Lights" and "Made in the USA Extension Cords" have been fully tested for consumers and other installers.
Automation with no international shipping costs allows us to compete with international imports with even better options like our glow connections when overheated or improperly connected and are water-tight. An installer Gordon Lester made us aware of a serious problem with common extension cords in 2012 and our team has been working on a solution ever since.
We look forward to having these "Made in the USA" products available in Ace Hardware, Home Depot and Lowe's in the future for consumers and other Christmas Light Installers to prevent the common problems with Big Store Holiday Lights.

Problems with Current Big Store Products
Electrical Problems with Big Store Products.
Common fires are a result in overloading the wire rating for Christmas Lights and Extension Cords. Big Stores normally sell low grade AWG Rated Wires for Christmas Lights and Extension Cords along with Timers.
In the United States, 50,900 fires each year are attributed to electrical failure or malfunction, resulting in 490 deaths and 1,440 injuries. Arcing faults are a major cause of these fires.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission estimates that AFCIs could prevent more than 50 percent of the electrical fires that occur every year.
About 3,300 residential fires originate in extension cords each year, killing 50 people and injuring about 270 others.
