Product Features
The Original QuickTree™ system from HolidayCoro allows you to combine PixNode Strips™ to build your pixel MegaTree in no time flat!

  • General Product Information
    • Designed for mounting HolidayCoro PixNode Strips™ to form an RGB MiniTree (QT1), MegaTree (QT2) or Super-MegaTree (QT3)
    • Only requires two simple zip ties for mounting strips - no screws, nuts or other hardware required and dis-assembly for off-season storage is just as easy - no screws, nuts or other hardware need to be removed during dis-assembly
    • Each topper has 3 or more combinations of string density allowing maximum flexibility or future growth without the need for new hardware
    • Ability to build any diameter or height tree from 4 to 40 feet in height or anywhere in-between
    • The design keeps the HolidayCoro PixNode Strips™ extremely close together to allow for the absolute tightest concentration of pixel strings of any topper in the industry, resulting in clean, "pointy" tree tops
    • Mounts with standard, inexpensive and commonly available pipe
    • Allows for 3 or 4 guy wires in each topper depending on your size and requirements.
      • QT3 has three rows of guy wire holes (3 and 4 guy wires) allowing for maximum versatility and customization with large MegaTrees
      • HolidayCoro does not recommend only connecting guy wires at the center of a support pole unless you have a 360 degree tree to support the top
      • Do not apply excessive tension on guy wires when using turn buckles, ratching straps or other devices intended to increase tension
    • Design allows for a variety of different star designs above the topper (see our website for pixel tree toppers)
    • All strong, weatherproof materials designed for many seasons to come
    • Friction attachment to center pole (QT1 & QT2) - for no worries about bolts popping out of slots
    • This product is currently patent pending
  • Included, optional and customer supplied items
    • Included
      • Topper
      • Compression screws to lock topper onto mounting pole
    • Optional (from HolidayCoro)
      • 4" Zip Ties (usually 4 per strip for top and bottom)
      • Strain Relief Clips - These strips provide a strain relief for the end of the strip at the ground when used with nails or other methods that concentrate loads on the node holes when secured
      • Center Pole Load Spreader - This 4.4" diameter, 3/4" thick plastic base allows you to mount your center pole so that the load is spread out over a larger area, preventing the pole from sinking into the ground. Additionally, there are 4 holes drilled (1 in the center of the pole and three on the outside) to prevent movement of the center pole. This item can be purchased from the optional section above on this page.
    • Customer Supplied / Purchased
      • Support Pole
        • QT1 - 3/4" EMT Conduit which can be found in the electrical isle of all hardware stores see links above
          • Actual center pole hole size: .90 inches / 22.9mm
        • QT2 - 1-3/8" Top Rail Fence Tubing or "Pipe" which can be found in the "Chain Link Fence" section of hardware stores (see links above). Note that multiple sections can be connected together to form longer poles.
          • Actual center pole hole size: 1.15 inches / 29.2mm
        • QT3 - 1" Hard "black" schedule 40 pipe with floor flanges (see links above)
          • Actual center pole hole size: 1.15 inches / 29.2mm (floor flange recommend in most cases to ensure proper load balance)
        • QT4 - 1" Hard "black" schedule 40 pipe with floor flanges (see links above)
          • None - use only floor flange to distribute load
      • Guy Wire - Due to the large number of customer specific environments, tree heights and dimensions, it is not possible to include a "one size fits all" solution for supporting trees. The following are general suggestions to consider:
        • Number of guy wires - The QuickTree toppers have a variety of holes for different mounting options, either 3 (QT1) or 3 or 4 (QT2 / QT3). For customers that have extremely high or heavy trees should consider using all four mounting points, for regular installations, three is typically sufficient.
        • No guy wire - Only QT1 can be used in short (under 8ft), un-guyed installations with 360 degree trees - all others should use a minimum installation of three guy wires.
        • The following are common methods of guying a QuickTree topper:
          • Ratcheting Straps (tie down straps) - Commonly available at many stores (Home Depot, Lowes, Menards, Harbor Freight), in many lengths, quality and colors, tie down straps allow you to easily make adjustments to the position of your center pole to allow for the perfect angle without the need to re-position the stakes. They also allow for quick adjustments to tighten up a tree as it "settles" over time. This is the preferred method for supporting a QuickTree.
          • Para-cord / Rope - Commonly available and inexpensive. Rope can have a tendency to stretch over time and requires knotting. It does allow re-positioning of the tree.
          • Metal Stranded Rope / "Aircraft Cable" - Extremely strong but hard to work with, terminate, more expensive and not usually as flexible as other options. This method tends to be very hard to make minor adjustments to a tree. Not generally recommended.
      • Eye Bolts - Guy Wire Connection Points
        • Required for use with rope, para-cord or ratcheting straps to attach to the topper
        • 3/8" x 2" to 6" Eye Bolts - 3 or 4 per topper (Home Depot, Lowes, Menards)
        • Be sure to have two nuts - one on each side of the topper, we do not recommend using only one nut on the top.
      • Threaded Pipe Mounting Flange (optional / not required)
        • For customers that wish to either using rigid pipe for their center pole and/or for their star topper
        • QT2 & QT3: Pre-marked holes for 1" Threaded Pipe Mounting Flange (Home Depot, Lowes, Menards)
        • QT2,QT3 & QT4: Pre-marked holes for 3/4" Threaded Pipe Mounting Flange (Home Depot, Lowes, Menards)
        • QT2, QT3 & QT4: For customers that want to use other sized flanges, there is up to 3.75" of space on the inside of the disk that can be used
        • QT2: Using a flange will partially block the 1" cable pass-through.
    • Customer Supplied Tools
      • Wrench (for attaching guy wire eye bolts)
      • Phillips Screw driver (for installing friction fit screws)
      • Hacksaw (used when cutting EMT conduit or top rail to length)
      • Hammer (installing nails or spikes)

Smart purchase - July 25, 2017
Reviewer: zeighty from Orlando, FL United States  
This is for my first MT Christmas 2017. I have viewed the videos and test fit the PixNode strips and could not be more pleased.  I am so glad that there are smart people making stuff like this to make my life a lot easier.  
Great design. My only ding is that the machining left lots of bits of plastic.  I recommend you open the package outdoors and use a couple of layers of paper towels to brush off any that are loose.

Great product, simple to use January 25, 2017
Reviewer: Charles P from Schwenksville, PA United States  
This is my first QT2 purchased and will not be my last. The QT2 is simple to use and the recessed tabs for the tie wraps used to secure the pixel strips is a really nice feature.
The product is well built and looks like it will stand up to years of Northeast winters.
