Can you mount this channel on the ceiling without the rope lighting coming out after they heat up, or do you have to mount this on the wall

Answer:I haven't used this channel in that position yet (I will later) but it is very stiff and should not be a problem. The rope fits very snugly in the channel. The LED rope lights I use consume less than 1 Watt/ ft and do not get warm compared to the previous incandescent rope light that used 12W/ft and did get warm.

Answer:I installed the channel under the counter top of my RV trailer with an orientation that is identical to what you have described in your question. While the sticky back adhesive did not support the channel fully in my application, I was able to use my small nosed air-powered stapler to secure the channel to the underside of the counter overhang.
To specifically answer your question, I have had no problem with the LED rope light cable sagging or any signs of movement, and we run into some pretty rough roads as we travel about the country. LED rope lights do not generate much, if any, heat so deformation of the mounting channel will not be an issue. My installation (being in an RV) used a 12-volt DC version of the LED rope light cable that was direct wired to the 12-volt power system, however, I don't think it is any different than using the 120-volt AC power supply and a transformer. The standard (120 volt AC) incandescent rope lights you see in the Home Improvement stores will generate a considerable amount of heat, but I suspect that even using this type product would not cause an issue in your application.

Answer:The easiest answer is yes. Make sure you have the correct diameter rope light. Mine fits very snug and will not fall out. The channels are fantastic. Very sturdy.
