Don’t use a Staple Gun when hanging Christmas lights up outside

Sounds obvious enough doesn’t it, but judging by the number of old staples around our fascias, someone didn’t heed the warnings about using staple guns to fix exterior Christmas lights to their house.

Staple guns are notorious for piercing plastic covering and shorting the exposed wires within. We don’t want any fires do we? We don’t want hours spent looking for the point of the short to fix it either, nor do we want anybody getting electrocuted.

Just a quick tip ahead of the weekend.
