How to avoid damaging your LED strip lights? A: Do not leave them on a reel!

Check out our new vlog.

In this video, we explain one of the most common causes of damaged LED strip lights. Be sure to watch this before you install your LED strip lights.

One of the main causes of damaged LED strip lights is by leaving them switched on while still on the reel. This creates massive heat build up over a short period of time and inevitably causes damage to the LED strips. It can even be a potential fire hazard.
