Just removed the 240Vac rope light from some Crazy Clark's (Go Lo, The Warehouse, etc) Christmas motifs. Both shapes I got (bell and cane) use 1 metre of rope, made up of 34 lamps in series. The Santa's LED Lights 24Vdc rope can be cut in 125mm increments, so 8 sections will fit neatly. Maybe this will work out for larger motifs too. The motifs were $3.50 each on special, so a cheap way to get small wire frames the correct size. Anyway, I thought this info might help others that are "metalwork challenged" !
