IP65 Outdoor Grip Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Can these connectors be submerged?

No, they can withstand vapor condensation and low-pressure jets of water but cannot be submerged under water.

Q: How long should I let the silicone sealant adhesive cure?

Please refer to the silicone sealant’s instructions for curing time recommendations.

Q: 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.

Q: 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 8”.

Q: What do I do If my lights aren't lighting up?

  1. Make sure the polarities match.
  2. Make sure that the window of the translucent case and the LED Strip light are facing upward.
  3. Make sure that the connectors are properly closed all the way. The strip should feel secure and not loose.
