LED light strips

Postby blackandtan » Thu Feb 02, 2017 3:18 pm

I know a lot of you use the led light strips that you can get on ebay and I also know the adhesive is hit or miss on the. My question is how do you make sure the lights are going to stay?

I'm a big fan of these LED Modules most also have better double sided foam tape on them compared to the cheaper rolls.. I rivet them when possible.

Mind to share the source on where you get these? I know I can find some that LOOK like these, lol, but if you have a supplier with reliable product, that would be good to know. Thanks!

we have this 3m adhesion promoter around for fastening body kits on cars, good for 100 mph
you definitely want to stick the strip in the correct spot the first time :mrgreen:
i prefer to use the grey tape if i have a choice but the led strips come with white tape (not as durable)

my 3rd brake light (1 meter led light strip) has been in place for 5 years without an edge lifting

anytime i use adhesive tape i use the adhesion promoter
google '3m adhesion promoter' you can find it most anywhere, even walmart carries it :mrgreen:

Let flexible waterproof RGB LED strips I purchased from Amazon have started falling off (the tape is failing). I guess I'll need to remove the stock tape and apply with good 3M stuff, or find LEDs with quality adhesive.

I actually cover my led strips with clear Gorilla Tape. After I stick them inside a sign, I tape over them and they stay!
