So I dont know if this is the right place to post this question in, but ill put it here anyway. So I have 4 windows and a door outline in my show. This will be my first year for a light display, and im having trouble figuring out how to attach the lights to the house. All of the lights are punched into boscoyo strip or cormatrim. I thought about using screws, but id rather not drill a bunch of holes in my house. Id appreciate any and all help.


I put two cup hooks in the frame at the top of the window and drill two hole in the pvc that slip over the cup hook.  I have 4 windows across the front of my house and they are all the same size.  So I made a template for placing the cup hooks and drilling the holes in the pvc.  Now any window frame will mount pn any window.  On an interesting side note, the windows on my screen porch are also the same and I put cup hook there and that is where I store my frames in the off season.
