How do I hang Cafe String Lights?
Hang Edison-style market string lights without drilling or using screws using Alumahangers, which are simple hook-style hangers that will hold the wire of your string lights.
Alumahooks are also used for hanging pull down shades, small plants, bird feeders, or even misters.
Zip Ties: For pergola covers you can also use Outdoor-rated Zip Ties by securing the string light wire with the zip ties around a lattice tube, rafter, or header beam.

It’s worth noting that many ceiling fan lights come with remote controls for convenient light control.
