Talking about LED strips Lights

May 17 at 8:00am - 5:00pm

Mic with family handyman here and today I’m going to show you how to install LED light strips LED light strips are becoming cheaper easier to install more accessible and they give off great light and it seems to me there’s some apprehension around the installation whether it’s how the parts go together or what parts you might need and today I’m gonna clear some of those things up and show you just how simple it can be so here’s what you’re gonna need first the LED light strips themselves they come in a roll and you can buy them in many different configurations including colour different sizes and the great part is you can cut them down to whatever length you need then you need solderless clamps for Mic with family handyman here and today I’m going to show you how to install LED light strips LED light strips are becoming cheaper easier to install more accessible and they give off great light and it seems to me there’s some apprehension around the installation whether it’s how the parts go together or what parts you might need and today I’m gonna clear some of those things up and show you just how simple it can be so here’s what you’re gonna need first the LED light strips themselves they come in a roll and you can buy them in many different configurations including colour different sizes and the great part is you can cut them down to whatever length you need then you need solderless clamps for LED light strips.
The LED strip goes in this side and then the wire goes in that side all you have to do is push them in press them down and your connection is made then you need a low voltage cable mine contains five wires one for a white blue-green and red and then there’s a power supply as well next we have the controller this is what lets you change from colour to colour and then colour to white and vice versa then you need a power supply it takes volt AC in your house down to volt DC so you can power the lights then if you want you can get this channel which makes installing the lights really easy it also comes with this nice frosted lens and then the remote which lets you change colours dim.
The lights and choose which channel is on and off then the only tools you need are a wire stripper and a small flat-head screwdriver first cut your LED light strip to length make sure you’re cutting along the line right through the context then push the LED strip into the short side of the solderless clamp and press it down and if you need to give it a little pinch with your wire strippers and make sure the side clips engage next to get a length of wire and you’re gonna want to peel the wires away you don’t have to strip them because we’re using solderless clamps then you’re gonna put the wire into the wire side of the solderless clamp you need to make sure that the wire corresponds with the letter on the LED light strips .
