Christmas Decoration ToolSet

Hey you guys,

I'm working on a "Christmas Decoration Toolset", www.santasquartersno.com/christmasdecorationtoolset.html, for my website and am looking for advice and/or suggestions. So far I've got tools that calculate the number of ornaments and light strings recommended for a Christmas tree, and a number of additional tools to figure out the watts you can safely use on a circuit, etc. I think I've covered the most common questions our customers normally ask, but would like to hear your suggestions. Are there any other light and decorating related questions you can think of that I may be able to answer? Thanks!

I would list the tools needed to put up christmas lights..
A light keeper PRO! for testing light strands
A extension painters pole for putting light in trees
A good ladder. Gorilla ladder or a little giant are the best
A tackle box full of spare minis c7 c9 led bulbs and supplies like zip ties electrical tape in all colors clips for wire frame minis etc.

a clamp meter to measure amp draw on a ckt as your building your display
and assortment of had tools especailly electrical tools
