If you are looking for a Commercial Quality Outdoor string light ideally suited for paper lanterns, consider the 15 Suspended-Socket Outdoor Light Set with 48' Black Cord from the PaperLanternStore. Measuring from the top of the cord to the bottom of the light bulb, each socket is suspended 7 3/4 inches. There is 3 feet of space between sockets, providing plenty of room to easily accommodate Chinese lanterns up to 20 inches in diameter. These medium-base string lights will look even more lovely when you festoon them with colorful, beautiful Oriental lanterns.
Use this commercial-grade light string inside or outside for temporary or permanent installation without a care. This rain-resistant lighting cord boasts parallel wiring, which means that even if one bulb goes out, the others will remain illuminated. If you want to cover even more ground, you can connect as many as five of these light strings end to end when you use our 11W bulbs.
