Mastering Your Mechanical Outdoor Timer for Dazzling Christmas Lights

‘Tis the season to transform your home into a festive wonderland with twinkling Christmas lights, and Dalton’s Lawn & Landscaping LLC is here to guide you through the optimal use of your mechanical outdoor timer. Let’s illuminate the path to a seamless holiday display!

1) Adjusting for Daylight Saving Time:

If your timer was installed before the daylight saving time change, take note! The preset schedule might be off by an hour. Simply recalibrate the time settings to ensure your lights sparkle at the right moments.

2) Setting the Time with Precision:

Locate the arrow in the center of the timer – this is your key to synchronization. Spin the outer edge of the dial until the arrow aligns with the current time of day. Should the power go out, remember to reset this arrow to maintain accurate timing.

3) Decoding the 48 Keys:

Each of the 48 keys on the timer represents a 30-minute interval. For instance, a downward key means your lights will shine, while an upward key signifies they’ll take a break. Keep an eye on the special 12:00 tabs; the sun marks noon, and the moon signifies midnight.

4) Overriding the Preset Hours:

Sometimes, you might want your lights on outside the preset schedule. Fear not! On the bottom right, you’ll find a small switch. In the bottom position, it reads “timer on,” while in the up position, it says “outlet on.” Switching it to “outlet on” allows you to override the pre-set hours without altering them.
