Shawn demonstrates that Lite-Netics are easily to install to indoor or outdoor metal surfaces, which takes the frustration out of holiday decorating. However, as Lori is quick to point out, the lights won’t attach to aluminum surfaces, and many homeowners may not know the exact material their house is made from.
