  • Inexpensive Garage Lights From LED Strips

    I used a simple mini limit switch with a roller wheel, see attached photos. The switch is installed at the top end of the door fully open, the roller rides up on the door as it reaches full opening, making contact.As the door closes, the switch turns off the lights.I only used six single light strips @ 15 feet each attached to the door panels. I did not rely on any of the glue-on or tape to hold them in place, I used small strip light rubber clips, I bought 100, plus the screws to hold them in place online for $3.00. and then connected two strips together using wire leaving enough slack for the panels to follow the track.C.
