Connecting RGB Flexible LED Strip to Strip
Splice Connector



Step #1: Remove about a ¼” of the waterproof coating from the end of the strip. You may use your fingernail (if you use a knife be very careful not to cut through the circuit board).

Step #2: For best results, clean the contacts with fine sandpaper or a wire brush. Also, trim 1/16” off the end of the circuit board so that the connec-tor will make better contact with the pads.

Step #3: Take the connectors and open them up by pulling the black pieces outward. Insert RGB strip
into connector opening, being careful to match the color code letters on both strips. The bottom of the flex
strip should be touching the black piece. Insert as far as possible.

Step #4:  Push the black piece back in, locking the flex strip in place. Repeat process for the other side.

Note: You can use this method with both the RGB strip-strip splice connector and the strip-wire-strip splice connector.
