Patio is covered

Answer by DIY Doc
Is the patio covered? Roofed? Canopied?

I recently did string lights for my ex on a 24 by 12, Roofed, and used white, adhesive backed velcro, adding the hook after, in small sections to the loop trapping the cord or close to each light. What that allowed was no damage to the frame, and the ability to adjust the cord, as well as remove the strings if need be.

After the fact the adhesive velcro residue can be removed with Mineral Spirits.

Just my two "sense"

I like Chili Pepper Strings, smile.

    need to see the patio. take pictures and resubmit.
    There should be a main frame and you should go to the hardware store and find some clips to clip the wire of the lights to the frame. you may need to use tech screws which means you need a screw gun also. if worse comes to worse, use binder clips. we use them all of the time. they are strong and not very noticeable. you can get them at an office supplies store
