Firstly, I unpack the LED strips.

In this 'ible, I'll just use two strips, few connectors, a jumper cable and an adapter.

Step 4: The Assembly

I join the strip with the connector so that its can connect to another strip (make sure the positive terminal is joined with the same positive terminal indicates on the each strip's end).

Step 5: The Jumper

A jumper cable can also be used to connect to another strip.

The triangle emboss on the jumper indicates the positive terminal.

The adapter has the same head as the jumper, so the setup is the same as before.

Great idea! Good lighting is vital to your home or office workspace! Ideas: this would be great under all your kitchen cabinets (you will see a big difference & enjoy your kitchen more except those darn dirty dishes haha) and your child's lower bunk bed can use some good lighting for reading (20 minutes a day!) or just to play. Thank you for sharing this bright idea! ?
