If your lights do not light up
Have all your materials ready. You will need scissors, LED flexible strip lights, a solderless connector, ruler (if needed), and a set of hands.
You may have your LED strip light sent to you in a reel (16 feet) or by the foot, depending on the quantity ordered. Decide how much flexible LED strip lighting you will need for your project. Since the LED strip is only cuttable every third LED, you may have to go slightly over or under your desired specification.
