Can LED light strips be cut?


As far as the products on the market are concerned, the LED light bar can be cut only by following the correct cutting steps.

1. Step 1.

First, you need to measure the length of the LED light bar you need.

If you want to use it as a cabinet light, I suggest you deduct about 3 inches from the total available space.

This will make room for its connectors (1.5 inches on each side).

Then you need to determine the tangent point.

You can identify the tangent point by two pads.

The pad will appear every three LED lights on the normal, bright and super bright LED light bar.

The pad will appear every 6 LED lights on the super bright light bar.

2. Step 2.

After determining the tangent point through the pad, you can use a sharp pair of scissors to cut the light bar into a certain length along the pad on the LED light bar.

What you need to pay attention to is: if you can’t cut the LED light bar in the proper position, it will cause some LEDs connected in series on the light bar to fail.

And it will make it difficult for the LED light bar to connect with the solderless connector.

3. Precautions.

If an end connector has been connected to one side of the light bar you are cutting, you can cut directly here.

And you don’t have to deal with the exposed ends of LED light bar flexible parts.
