Fiber Optic Holiday House Flag with Built-in Timer
When I 1st got this the lights worked great...and they died! I must say though the flag is beautiful.
Does not work
Don't waste your money. I have tried several of these fiber optic flags and the fiber optic feature does not work. What a shame as the flag is a great quality. Also, the fiber optic feature only appears on one side.
Received my flag yesterday, well packaged. Put the batteries in and it lit right up perfectly. Took me a minute to figure out how to shut it down, but that was operator error. Material is strong and seems weather-resistant. Will hang it outside the day after Thanksgiving and hopefully will be as pleased with the flag as I am upon first impression.
pain in the neck
i got 2 of these last year! put the metal pole together and put these in two big pots, the top rod where the flags hang from would go around and around! i had to constantly go out and fix them. i tightened them all the time. they bunched up all the time. by the end of season the timers stopped working! i took them down sooner then i wanted to!
Love the flags; check wiring
I ordered the christmas tree and the snow flake flags in January. Hung the snowflake flag out for January & February. When I took it down I noticed that the wiring came loose from the button where you turn the timer on & off. Was able to see this through the rod pocket. Went to a Radio Shack & bought a soldering iron. Soldered the wires back on the to button & it's working fine again. So if you are pressing that little button and it's not turning on or off it may be that the wires are disconnected.
I don't know why people are having a problem with this flag-mine has been working perfectly since I put it out-the day after Thanksgiving! It goes on right on time every night-and we have had ALOT of wind and rain here and it still goes on,night after night! The colors are bright,it looks so cute at night- I have gotten so many compliments from my neighbors-everyone LOVES it and so do we! I wouldn't hesitate to purchase this flag,I don't know why others are having issues but for us us- so far so good.
SO GLAD I PURCHASED IT!!!
Christmas Tree Bummer
I was so excited, pretty / colorful and a timer. I Put it in the window of my daughters home, it would not come on! changed the batteries twice, hoping it was something we done wrong, not! The material is nice. But like the other reviews, they just don't work. Don't waste your time. Its going back to expensive to keep just for show.
so far so good
Just put batteries in and hung it outside. love the way it blinks, very unusual. Only 7 of my ornaments light up.. as long as it keeps going nightly, I am keeping mine.
Cute, but not reliable.
Put batteries in the flag it worked for two weeks and then just stopped working. Tried two sets of new batteries and still didn't work??!! I guess it's going back, not interested in another don't want to spend more time messing around with another one. To bad, it was cute.
I bought the Christmas tree, and not all of the ornaments are lit (about 9 of the 12 are lit). Has anyone else bought the tree, and are all your ornaments lit? Please answer in the question/answer section where I have posted a question. I have emailed the manufacturer but they have not bothered to reply as yet. If the ornaments are not supposed to be all lit, then I will live with it, as I like the concept. If they are all supposed to be lit, I will have to reorder and hope the second one is better.
