Installation Instructions for Over the Street Snowflake Line:

Step 1: Hang the 5’ Fancy Forked Snowflake first. Position it in the center of the cable. Install the Safety Pins as shown to prevent the snowflake from bouncing off of the cable.

Step 2: Install a Cable Clamp on the cable, just to the outside of each unit’s hanger. This will ensure that the snowflake will not move out of position along the cable. NOTE: Leave the Cable Clamps in place after takedown so that it will be easier to install the decoration the following year.

Step 3: Hang each of the 4’ Single Spiral Snowflakes. Hang them about 8’ on center from the 5’ Fancy Forked Snowflake – one to the left and one to the right. Install Safety Pins and Cable Clamps as previously instructed for the center snowflake. Then hang the 3.5’ Snowburst Snowflakes in the same manner.

Step 4: Connect the electrical plugs together to the individual snowflake units. The center unit (5’ Fancy Forked) has two wiring harnesses on it. Each harness is set up to light half of the unit and plug into the other two snowflakes to its left and right. The harness on the 5’ Fancy Forked is to be plugged into a female plug on the 4’ Single Spiral. The next extension cord comes off of the 4’ Single Spiral to the 3.5’ Snowburst.

NOTE: Should you require an additional extension cord to reach your power source, you will need one with a 3-hole GFIC female receptacle on the end to match up with the cord coming off of the 3.5’ Snowburst.
