Best Christmas Light Clips – Easiest Way To Hang Holiday Lights

Hanging Christmas lights can be a real chore. The best way is to use clips instead of staples, nails, glue, or tape. Clips are great because they can be used more than once, are not permanent, and won’t leave as much damage as staples or glue. They are also much quicker to use, and won’t run the risk of ruining the wires on your lights. There’s been many times where I accidentally stapled the wires and had to repair it to get the lights to work again. Clips are also easy to remove, even easier than putting them up. At the end of the holidays, you’ll be happy that you can take your lights down in a few minutes.

These holiday light clips come in all shapes and sizes and are used for various locations and types of lighting. Deck or eave clips allow you to attach lights to the bottom part of your roof. Shingle or gutter clips allow you to attach lights to the top edge of your roof. You can even use both to have two strands of lights going around the edge of your roof.

Here are the top clips we found on Amazon.

Club Pack of 25 Christmas Light Holders Deck Clip Hooks

These deck or eave clips are great for attaching lights to deck railings or your eaves. They allow you to quickly attach lights to the bottom part of your roof’s edge. I usually attach the lights by placing the wire up against the wood, and not using the extra clip, so that the lights appear more flush and straight. If taken care of, these can be used multiple seasons. Can be used with C6, C7, C9, miniature, icicle, LED and rope lights.
