Rated 5 out of 5 by Momof2inTX Great light stakes
These stakes are strong and held our lights straight and tight through an ice storm. Were easy to insert and remove from our grass. Glad we found these at a very good price since every store was sold out in Dec.

Rated 1 out of 5 by DaveW Defintely NOT for C9s, and probaly not for C7s either....
First, LOVE 1000bulbs! I’ve been very happy with all my purchases, but this item is a bust. We’re outfitting our new home with Christmas lights, and purchased 2 of the 100-bulb C9 strings for the yard along with bulbs and stakes. The strings and the bulbs are great, but unfortunately these stakes are not up to the task. I’ve rated them ‘Poor” overall because the plastic is just too flimsy. Out of the first hundred, 2-3 broke just bending them into position to hold the bulbs, and more as I tried to put the bulbs into the clips. I’ve rated them ‘Poor” for effectiveness for my application because the clips are too small to hold the C9 bases. I haven’t attached 20 bulbs yet, and I’ve already got 5-6 clips broken as I try to fit them around the bases. Those that don’t break are stretched so far out of shape the bases are either going crooked or being squeezed out of the clip. They might work for a C7, but C9s are just too big. I’ve rated them ‘Poor’ for value because they’re poorly made and even if a C7 will fit, the overall weakness of the stake will still result in breakage. I wouldn’t recommend these, and will contact customer service about exchanging these for something more suitable for my application.
