Step 4: Get Wired
Remove the hanger-tip nearest the end of the LED strip where the power will plug in. Usually they unscrew. Try that first - turning while pulling gently - because those will go back on securely without glue.
(see second picture)
Attach the power cable. Again, this kit makes it really easy. There are arrows on the power connector and the LED strip that you just match up.
(see third picture)
Because the inside of the hanger-tip is hollow, you can route the cable into a gentle U-turn in there.
- Bending electrical cords too sharply, especially right where they go into a rigid piece like a connector, puts strain on the little wires inside that helps them break sooner.
- OF COURSE the cord will LET you bend it way too much; the manufacturer knows that if it breaks, you'll have to buy a new one!
Plug in, turn on, try out!
