How to install your LED tape using fixing clips
Fixing clips are small clear rubber clips. Simple to fit, they can be screwed on either side of your LED tape to hold it in place. You can use as many fixing clips as you need to secure your LED strip lights.
You should consider using fixing clips on projects where LED strips will be positioned upside down or against a vertical surface. The clips are also a good option if you’re installing your LED strips externally, as self-adhesive backing is unlikely withstand rain and weather.
How to fit LED tape extrusions
If you’re using InStyle’s LED tape extrusions (sometimes called LED profiles), you can cut them to your required lengths very simply using a hack saw. If you need to cut extrusions at an angle, that’s no problem. (The frosted covers that slot into the extrusion, over your LED strip, can be cut just as easily).
LED tape extrusions can be fitted into place by using counter sink screws, or with fixing brackets. These brackets are screwed into place, and you then clip your LED extrusion to them. A third option is to use our foam backing to secure your extrusion in position – by sticking the backing all along the underside of the extrusion and pressing it directly onto the surface where the extrusion is to be mounted.
