  • Reuse the shipping cartons, hang decorations from large hooks in the ceiling, or use heavy-duty brackets on the wall. Cover with paper or cotton sheeting to protect while in storage.

Installation Instructions for Spade Mount:


Check contents of box. There will be 2 adjustable banding straps per spade mount bracket.

STEP 1: Place the top of the spade mount at the desired height. This varies depending on the size of the decoration, the size of the light pole, and vehicle and/or pedestrian traffic. Clearance should ideally be 2 feet above truck or pedestrian traffic.

STEP 2: Insert the top band through the slots in the spade mount. Bring the end around the pole and through the screw lock. Push screw down so threads of screw engages the slots in the band.

STEP 3: Using a screwdriver or a wrench, slightly tighten the band so spade mount is held in place firmly, but not so much that it lifts the bottom part of the hardware off of the pole.

STEP 4: Install the other band as above. Slide both bands around the pole so the loose ends can be put inside the slots of the spade mount if possible. Tighten both bands until spade mount is very firmly against the pole.

STEP 5: Take the decoration and insert the spade portion into the track of the spade mount.

STEP 6: Connect the male lead cord into your electrical supply.
