LED Strip Installation Guide

Installing your LED strip lights is simple. Follow this guide for best results.

Step 1: Unroll and Test Your Lights

Unroll your strip of lights and test them before installation. Do not power them on before unrolling as this can present a fire hazard.

Step 2: Measure

Measure the area where you will be applying the lights, and make sure you have enough length to cover the area.

Step 3: Clean and Prep the Area

Use a damp cloth to clean the area, removing any dust or debris. Then allow the area to dry. This is essential to make sure your lights stick firmly.

If you are installing your lights in an area where a straight line could be challenging, it may be helpful to draw a light line with a pencil to use as a guide during application.

Step 4: Peel and Stick

Peel the 3M backing from the strip to reveal the adhesive surface. Peel only a small amount at a time to prevent the adhesive from accumulating dust during application.

Begin pressing your lights against the wall or other surface gently. It can be helpful to have a second person assist you by holding the lights and removing the backing as you apply them. Press firmly for a secure connection.

If you purchased 32 or 50 feet, use the provided connector (below) to connect multiple strips. Line up the arrows to connect.

 

If you need to cut the strip, do so at the black line (below).

Step 5: Connect the Controller Receiver and Power Adapter

Connect the LED controller receiver to the light strip. You will see arrows indicating the connection point (below). Press firmly as this connection must be secure.

Connect the power adapter.

Step 6: Check all Connections

Take a moment to make sure all your connections are secure.

Step 7: Install Remote Battery

As stated in our product description, our LED strips do not come with a CR2025 battery. Install your separately purchased battery.

Take a deep breath and prepare to watch your room glow up before your very eyes!

Step 8: Three, Two, One - GLOW UP!

Have your assistant create a drumroll on a nearby surface. Count down from three to one and press the power button at the top right-hand corner of your remote.

Step 9: Stare in Amazement
