Abstract
A lighted line having an elongate flexible wire-formed bulbless light source is encased in a supportive covering, which may include a surrounding rope and tubular sheathing. An electrical power source operatively connected to the wire-formed light source is adapted to energize it to produce light, which radiates laterally of the line and emanates through the rope and tubular sheathing.
