Attaching wires to single color Flexible LED 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 connector will make better contact with the pads.

Step #4: Insert single color  strip into connector opening, being careful to match the positive (+) and negative (-) marks on both strips.  The bottom of the flex strip should be touching the black piece.  Insert as far as possible.
