Light Your Haunt With Hacked LED Christmas Lights Phil

Shove a bunch of LEDs into a can, then watch Ohm's Law and Murphy's Law duke it out.

Safely lighting our outdoor haunt has always been a compromise game. Every spotlight comes with an extension cord, and those routes have to be planned because haunt visitors are like free range chickens, or BBs. They go all over. Keeping the electrified snakes from attacking our chickens is a key responsibility that we don't take lightly.

In an effort to reduce the snake population, we investigated other lighting options and came up with what seemed to be a viable alternative: Low voltage landscape lighting.
