The colorful LED strip lights are very beautiful, you can use them as Christmas and Halloween decorations. There are mainly two ways to hang single color LED strips. One method is to use 3M double-sided tape and the other method is to use a mounting bracket. Let us continue reading to know more.
This passage is going to talk about the followings of hanging single color LED strip lights:
(1)Method 1: Use 3M tape for peeling and pasting single color LED strip light
(2)Method 2: Use a ribbon mounting bracket to hang single color LED stirp light
(3)What are the attentions when hanging single color LED strip light?
Use 3M tape on the back of the single color LED strip light to stick the strip light to the mounting surface, which is usually called peel-off and paste installation. To do this, peel off the protective lining or protective film of the 3M tape for about two feet, stick the two-foot light strip to the application surface, then peel off and stick it two more feet, and so on.
Each application of a two-foot-long light strip can prevent the light strip from being messed up by entanglement or sticking to dust. Tip: If you need to peel off, use a file cleaner to peel off the release paper of the 3M tape. Many times.
Avoid putting too much pressure on the LED when sticking the single color LED strip light. The amount of contact between the adhesive and the surface directly affects the bond strength. Firmly applied pressure can form better adhesive contact, thereby increasing bond strength.
But don't press hard, especially on LEDs and resistors. Only apply pressure to areas without LEDs or other electrical components. A large rubber pad like an eraser may help.
Another way to hang single color LED strip lights is to use strip light mounting brackets and screws at appropriate intervals on the strip light. For outdoor light strip applications, this installation method may be a good choice.
It is also commonly used in indoor applications where LED strips are hidden or invisible, such as ceiling lights. It may be difficult to prepare a dusty construction surface on the ceiling holes. In addition, the mounting bracket will not block the light emitted by the LED.
Finally, install the LED controller and power supply. Turn on the power and enjoy the strip lighting!
Before installing the LED strip, it is very important to test all the connections we made in the previous steps.
This test is to ensure that all connections are working properly to prevent accidents after we install the strip lights. Note that after sticking the LED strip with 3M tape, it is very difficult to remove it. Even if you manage to do it, the LED strip may be potentially damaged due to pressure during the removal process. In addition, if 3M tape is used a second time, a strong bond will not be established.
In addition, pay attention to power supply safety and installation protection when doing hanging work.
