    SPT1 Wire

    Spt1 wire is also known as zip wire. When I first heard about it I did not think much about it. Later I did some research and I found that spt wire had a ton of benefits. It is not heavy and bulky as regular extension cords tend to be nor is it orange. Extension cords should be used for light controllers and other big items that need a heavier amperage load. Spt1 wire can be used to connect lower amperaged items    ( less than 10 amps) such as mini trees, wire frames etc. Spt wire and spt plugs make it easy to custom make cords for all areas of your display.

     
    A creative example for the use of spt wire is that you can make a wiring harness. What is a wiring harness you ask.  It is a series of power cords that are specifictly made to length for a certain area of your display. Normally people will connect all of the wires together with muliple zip ties evenly spaced along the lenght of the cords when compleating the harness. A great example of a wireing harness is if you are setting up 32 mini trees in circle then you could have two wiring harness one for 16 of the trees in one direction and then one for the other 16 trees in the opposite direction.. Once it is made you can used it every year for super fast setup. I have made 16 channel wiring harnesses for my mini trees. What I did was space out my mini trees the way I like them (2' in between each), then laid the first cord out going to the first mini tree. I made the lead cord that will go to the light controller 8' long. You can make your lead cord longer or shorter. Next lay out your next cord going to the second mini tree. This should be zip tied 2 feet from the first mini tree. Make sure when you zip tie it you leave a 3 foot lead going to each mini tree. Keep adding until you get the desired amount of cords. Also make sure you label them with numbers.
