String light set with power plug and bulbs.

The product presents a high risk of electric shock as the lighting chain was marked as having a protection rating of IP 67, e.g., protected from low pressure jets of water. The rating could not be tested as part of this assessment, but due to the lack of suitable gaskets it was considered that this level had not been
met. Overtime the cables can degrade exposing the live wires. A consumer may not notice the exposed wires and may touch the cables to move them and receive an electric shock. The model on the label affixed to the lighting chain differed to the one printed on the packaging. These need to be consistent to avoid confusion. The instructions provided were also considered inadequate. They did not provide sufficient information to ensure proper installation, use and maintenance.

The product does not meet the requirements of the Electrical Equipment (Safety) Regulations 2016.
