Black string lights packaged in a brown cardboard box.

The product presents a high risk of fire as the plug fuse did not meet the requirements of BS1362. The length of the fuse was too small and the diameter of the endcaps was too large. The endcaps were insecurely fixed and the fuse had not been provided with any granular filler to ensure the safe operation under fault conditions. The lights were marketed as being for outdoor use but had not been marked appropriately and did not have protections from the potential ingress of water or moisture. The instructions were deemed inadequate as they did not provide sufficient information to ensure proper installation, use and maintenance. Some of the required documentation and markings were not present.

The product does not meet the requirements of Electrical Equipment (Safety) Regulations 2016, or the Plugs and Sockets etc. (Safety) Regulations 1994.
