3. Hang patio lights. Once you’ve installed your cup hooks or strung up your wire, you’re ready to put up the lights. Plug the lights directly into an exterior outlet or into an outdoor extension cord and position the first bulb next to the mounting hardware. Once you’ve checked this spacing, unplug the lights to hang the rest of the string. Work your way across the yard to hang the string lights between mounts, following the pattern you envisioned. Most commercial-grade patio lights come with clips attached to the top of the bulb socket or the wire above the bulb. If you used a mounting wire, clip the lights onto the wire.Once all lights are up, once again plug the string lights into the exterior outlet or extension cord plugged into an outlet. You can use electrical staples to keep the extension cord tight against the wall of a house or down a post.
