How to cut and connect the led strip light with fast connector


When we use led strip light in projects,we need to cut the led strip light in length.Sometimes,we also need to cut the multiple led strip light.We need to use fast led connector to connect the led strip light.And connect the led strip light to led power supply.

Following post will let you know how to cut the led strip light in length and how to connect the led strip light with fast connector then can connect with the power supply.

Step 1,Prepare material

We need led strip light,scissors,solder-less fast connector.The fast connector have some kinds,wire to strip connector,strip to strip light connector,middle connector.And have led connect for 8mm single color led strip light,led connect for 10mm single color led strip light,led connect for RGB led strip light,led connect for RGBW led strip light,led connect for RGBCCT led strip light,led connect for CCT change led strip light.
