Plan for the placement of your black lights. Try to choose a location where your cord can reach the corner or the bottom or top trim of a wall and will also be able to easily reach an outlet. Test out the location by holding the black light up to that spot and arranging the cord so it reaches the closest corner or trim and then snakes along that straight edge to the nearest outlet. If there is not enough cord, find an extension cord.
Attach your black light to the wall by fixing screws through the holes in the light casing and into the wall.
Pull the cord tightly to the nearest corner or trim board, where the cord can lie flat and appear as inconspicuous as possible.
Hammer a U-shaped nail around the cord to fix it to its location. If your cord has reached a corner, pull it down taut along the corner now, and place a U-shaped nail around the cord every foot until you get close to the outlet.
Things You Will Need
- U-shaped nails
- If you have to hang your black lights by their own cord for some reason, be sure to choose a lighter-weight black light. Pin the cord to the ceiling or wall with U-shaped nails in as many places as possible to fix the cord tightly to its base.
