Dynamic Tunable White Solderless Grip Connectors
Our new grip strip connectors make installations faster, cheaper and easier than ever. The lightweight yet durable design makes secure connections, so there’s no need for professional tools if you follow our step-by-step guide.
These new solderless connectors come in different lengths so you’ll have more freedom to tweak and expand your lighting projects, while the color-coded wires allow for effortless attachments.
Planning to install outside? Our Outdoor IP65 Grip Connectors are perfect for outdoor projects because they fit snugly inside the silicone end caps that weatherproof your strips.
Note: When installing connectors with the UltraBright™ Architectural Dynamic Tunable Strip (UB-AS-DYN), you will need some more copper pad to work with. You need to cut both solder pads so that the piece to be attached to the connector has more surface area to insert into the connector head.

Frequently Asked Questions
What are the advantages of solderless connectors?
- No soldering required
- Install LED strip lights in seconds
- Easily attach an additional strip to the run of lights
- Easy to connect and disconnect
Can I load the connectors with more than 5 amps?
It is not advisable to overload the connectors as this will result in future damages to the connectors and your setup.
Which connector should I use to turn a corner?
The C2 connectors are typically used throughout our series for corners, bends and jumps shorter than 6”.
I have a jump longer than 6”, how can I make that extension?
With longer jumps you can splice low voltage wire to the ends of the C1 connectors and extend your run as required. You can secure the splices with wire nuts, crimp connectors, terminal blocks or electrical tape.
What wire should I use to make extensions?
Depending on the series of LEDs you are working with and the length you intend to run the wire, you would need to factor in voltage drop. It is recommended to consult with a qualified electrician which wire gauge would work best for your setup. Connectors come with 20-gauge stranded low voltage wire and can be spliced with any wire your electrician suggests.
Are these connectors a better option than soldering directly to the LED strip?
We always suggest soldering as the best option for a long term solution. Sometimes the connectors can be bumped or knocked off. In high vibration areas, it may cause the connector to come loose from the strip. Soldering is better if your soldering skills are pristine as the solder pads are very small and the solder joints cannot touch.
What do I do If my lights aren't lighting up?
1. The red wire is not always positive! Depending on the side of the LED strip you hook the connector up to, the - or + wires can be a differently assigned color than another connector. Make sure you follow the RGB(W) markings on the strip to indicate which colored wire will be RGB(W) and which will be assigned negative.
3. Also, make sure the flap is closed all the way. If the lights slip out of the connector it is not closed all the way. Be gentle.
4. Check your power supply and make sure it is hooked up correctly and V+ and V- on the LED strips are correctly aligned.
