    I have for a customer already installed a garden socket with a fixed fuse outlet next to it.The lights they provided are no good,the transformer must be indoors and it would not fit and be waterproof in socket anyhow..

    So wat i need is some pointers of some 240 lights(its to go up and around a tree)I want to wire it direct to fused spur,circuit is rcd protected.
    Cheers

    the transformer must be indoors and it would not fit and be waterproof in socket anyhow..

    Then supply and fit a suitable box to fit a socket in.. which will allow the transformer to plug in.

    I have thought of that,but would it not be a pain to open and close an enclosure to switch on and off?..Or can you get a box with a easy opening door?...:)

    The smarter cheaper method however....

    Would be to mount a socket and transformer in an ip rated box with screwed down lid.. a short lead with a plug on the end, which would plug in to the existing ip rated socket.

    Easier access to the transformer it self is unneeded and raises the cost.

    Good idea X but the festoon lights off the above link are 240,so all i need to do is cut off plug and connect to me ip rated fixed fuse outlet already in place,so this has got to be the best way....:)

    If you say so...

    I can think of a reason why it may not be.. ;)

    Far be for me to point out what cutting off of the plug means... (and I'm not referring to the guarantee)

    I'm sure you can look it up / work it out
