How to safely hang x-mas lights on a tall outdoor tree
We have a large, maybe 10-12 foot xmas tree on our front lawn that we want to hang outdoor lights on. We don't want to use ladders because we've already got snow/ice on the ground. Is there some gizmo/gadget that is sold at home improvement stores to hang lights? Something like a telescoping pole or something? Anyone know if Home Depot, Menards or Lowes would have such an item, and if so, what to ask for?
Thanks in advance for your help.
