Step-by-step advice for a fun, affordable project
Connecting the lights to the cable is simply a matter of pinching the light's connector onto the cable. Place one-half of the connector on each side of the cable, and align the connector's arms into the appropriate slots. The connector has two metal prongs that will penetrate the insulation and make contact with the wire inside. Simply squeeze the halves together until you have as tight a connection between them as possible.
Using a pointed shovel, dig a 6-inch-deep trench next to the cable. Place the cable in the trench, but don't bury it yet. Plug the transformer in, activate the timer or cover the photocell if necessary, and check each light to be sure it's working. If everything's OK, bury the cable and you're all done!
