How to use a Tape to starter lead connector
1: This is the Tape to starter lead connector for single colour. The RGB connector looks the same although it has 4 coloured cables.
2: Cut the LED Tape along the cut line with a pair of scissors. The cut line will be marked on most LED Tapes by a small scissor icon. If it does not have this you can easily find the cut point as it will be a line in-between 4 solder pads (or 8 for RGB). The cut points vary for LED Tape, they are every 3 LED’s for 12v and every 6 LED’s for 24v.
3: Now take your Tape to starter lead connector and your new piece of cut LED Tape
4: Open the Connector
5: Slide the connector over the LED Tape making sure the 3m self adhesive tape has been removed and that the cables match up with the + and – printed on the LED Tape. Red goes to + and black goes to –
6: Close the connector lid down into place making sure the LED tape is right to the end on tight
7: Wire the starter lead connector to a transformer or extend it simply with a connector block. Your LED Tape should now work
