Images Of Kitchen Lighting | One of the main reasons people choose LED rope lighting over other kinds of lighting is because it’s so versatile. Not only can it’s shaped to match any area, it can be cut to match and spliced with other pieces if the longer piece is necessary.
It may also be sliced if you prefer a color combination to match your d?ýcor. It is important to specifically what you are doing prior to starting cutting the rope or try to splice it. The following is a guide for cutting and splicing LED rope lighting:
• Cutting the Rope Lights – In order to chop these lights you’ll want one of the following, a PVC pipe cutter, box cutter or heavy-duty scissors. It is advisable to possess the pipe cutter since you obtain a straighter edge and there’s less potential for cutting crooked. The entire pipe has slash marks for the pipe to show you where it can be cut. Do not cut anywhere which is not marked or you will end up ruining that little bit of light rendering it useless. These slash marks run from either eighteen inches or thirty-six inches.
The two wire type is every eighteen inches along with the three wire, or chaser lights, is every thirty-six inches. You should look at the area you would like to cover carefully and choose the rope type based on the length of time the rope must be. If thirty-six inches is simply too long you will want to obtain the two-wire light. Make the cut cleanly then trim off the excess copper wire through the end by bending the sunshine to show it. Once it is properly prepared, you’ll want to add the connector kit or splice another color or length to the sunshine.
