How do I make sure these are the right bulbs for my light set?
Most light sets have a white tag near the male plug of the light set.  On this tag, there should be a notation something along the lines of "replace only with 3.5 volt bulbs".  After the voltage is determined, you then need to check the be sure that the amperes (mA or A) are correct.  Sometimes this will be written just after the voltage, and sometimes it is only mentioned at the bottom of the tag.  Please give us a call if you have any questions: 877-750-0971!
Are these bulbs pinched at the base of the glass portion?
Unfortunately, these bulbs are no longer pinched at the base, but this traditional rounded shape is most commonly used in light sets. They should work in about 95% of the light sets made today that require a 3.5 volt bulb.  If you are looking for a pinched base option, please reference our sister website: 612 Vermont
Please note: Because of the many varieties of bases/sockets on mini lights, these bulbs don't not come with bases. It is important to hold on to your old bases, so that these new bulbs can be assured a good fit. In order to replace bulb, bend wires straight, pull bulb out from base, and then slip the new bulb in place.

    Posted by Denise on Jan 3rd 2022

    These bulbs are an exact match to the light set, I have, however the bulbs are very dull and not bright. Not sure why they are not bright.

    Was looking for a small quantity of bulbs to repair Christmas ornaments. When I looked on the Hard to Find site, they had 5-packs (versus packs of 50 or more). They were out of stock. Without my admit, HTF sent me an email when they were back in stock and delivered in days. Thank you.

    Very specific replacement christmas lights.

    Posted by SUSAN R. on Dec 31st 2020

    I was over joyed to find thses bulbs reasonably available on line since nowhere could I find them in the Detroit metropolitan area. The volt3.5 was specific but also the amps. I know this because i did find the 3.5 v lamps but the amps were too high and thus burned out the whole string. Why not just throw it out and buy new ? You might ask? Well it was a specific inexpensive decoration but requires a single string with 5 added strings off the main branch. Besides all that, I like this decoration and have a specific place for it in my yard. Thus, I was not only above and beyond delighted but very satisfied that the order was shipped at minimal cost and quickly given the state of shipping these holidays, Thank you & bless you in the coming year2021.

    Bulbs work. Indeed, 3.5v are hard to find, and this is a good price.
