To install LED strip lighting, first run the strip across your chosen surface to work out how much you need. Then, cut the strip along the nearest dotted line to avoid damaging the components. Once you’ve got the right length, attach a quick connecter to the end of the LED strip if it doesn’t already have an input cable. Before you attach the strip to your surface, give it a quick wipe down so the adhesive sticks properly. Then, remove the adhesive backing from the whole strip and press it firmly against the wall. Finally, connect your LED strip to its power supply using the quick connector or wire. If it doesn’t work after connecting to the power supply, check that all of the plus and minus signs are lined up. For more tips, including how to work out the power requirements for your LED strips, read on!
