    Thank goodness!
    Pros

    Really does bring dark strands back to life. The bulb remover and the bulb tester are GREAT conveniences.

    Cons

    Seems like some strands were beyond saving; this tool didn't work for them

    General Comments

    I hate throwing strands of lights in the trash, but going bulb by bulb trying to find the one that is causing the whole strand to go out is MADDENING! This tool saves the day. I am giddy every time it works.

    bulb tester
    Pros

    Easy to use.

    Cons

    Doesn't work so well on metal threaded wreathes. Probably would do well on straight line lites.

    Pros

    Easy to use.

    Cons

    None.

    General Comments

    I had whole strings out. I plugged the strands into the gun and pulled the trigger. The strands lit up, even though there were separate bulbs out. VERY pleased with this!

    Pros

    Pretty darn good at what it does.
    Saves time.

    Cons

    Not that great on a metal wire framed figurine. Like a deer, better take the lights off, then do it.
    The plug in and light up the string doesn't work on wire-framed animals because the light strands have clips on them.
