- Prepare the Rope Lights: Make sure you have the warm white LED rope lights you want to connect or extend.
- Cut the Rope Lights (if needed): If you need to customize the length of the rope lights, you may need to cut them at designated cut points, which are usually marked on the rope light itself. Be careful to cut them cleanly and evenly.
- Prepare the Ends: Strip the insulation from the ends of the cut rope lights to expose the copper conductors. Typically, you’ll have two wires: positive (+) and negative (-).
- Insert Wires into Connector: Insert the stripped ends of the LED rope light wires into the corresponding slots or pins in the 2-pin connector. Ensure you match the positive and negative wires correctly.
- Secure and Seal: Most connectors for outdoor or waterproof applications may come with sealing caps or heat-shrink tubing. Make sure to use these to protect the connection from moisture and environmental factors.
- Test the Connection: Once the wires are securely connected, test the LED rope lights to ensure they are functioning correctly.
