Perfect
July 6, 2013
Needed something to mount rope lights in a perfect straight line around a large deck step. Found these listed in an article as an idea and decided to try. Product is well made but kind of challenging to work with. I drilled holes for mounting to wood but had to countersink the screw heads. Drilling was easy, countersinking was more challenging. Took a while but worked perfect in the end. I'm very happy with the results.
Pros:
Well made, durable & holds rope lights SOLIDLY in place.
Cons:
Would be nice if countersunk holes were pre drilled during manufacturing process and set every 6 inches or so.

Different use
January 3, 2015
I used this track around my pool enclosure for rope light. Having a piece left over I discovered that LED strip lights in rectangular tubes fit perfectly and allow for easy removal. I'll be using this assembly for Christmas lights.

A must for installing rope light

High quality product
December 9, 2014
I wanted a product that would hold my rope lights in a straight line under a deck and handrail to light steps and a foot path. This product is constructed with a heavier material than I could find in local stores. It cut easily with a hack saw and held my 1/2 rope lights securely - and in a straight line. I installed with small self tapping screws at about 16" intervals.

I use this channeling to hold 750' of LED rope light to outline my house for Christmas lights. I ordered this to replace channeling from a different company that I had to replace after installing it only 2 years ago. After 2 summers in the sun the old channeling warped, yellowed, and in some cases turned black, cracked and fell off. I am hoping that this channeling will fair better since it is UV rated. Time will tell. UPDATED: I was very pleased with this product after initially installing it for Christmas 2013. I have over 500 feet of cool white LED rope lights lining the eves, windows, and doors of our house. I initially purchased channeling from another online marketplace when I moved into the house in 2011. The channeling is left up year round, while the rope lights are taken down. After one summer, the old channelling had started to yellow, and when I inserted rope light into it for Christmas 2012, many pieces cracked and barely held the lights. I made do as best I could, but after the summer of 2013, that channeling had turned black in places, warped, and actually fell off the house in spots. I searched for new channeling that was UV rated and found this PDL-TRK-4 product. I was so pleased when I installed it during Christmas 2013. This channeling was 4' long (as opposed to my old 3' long pieces). It was incredibly sturdy and held the rope light very securely. The old channeling was very difficult (almost impossible) to cut or drill screw holes into without cracking or chipping as it was so brittle. The PDL-TRK-4 was a breeze to install, and could be cut with hand cutters or snips (which is quite convenient when you are hanging off of the roof 3 stories up). Unfortunately 1-year later, the PDL-TRK-4 has also turned a darker yellow. In many places when I inserted the rope lighting into the 1-year old channeling it too cracked. Again I made do this year (Christmas 2014) as best I could, but due to the yellow tint, my "cool" white LED rope lights now look "warm white." I will have to search for yet another solution for Christmas next year (2015) and it will be the 3rd time in 5 seasons that I will have had to install 500 feet of channelling. It's not only becoming incredibly expensive to keep replacing this channelling, but also very very time consuming. Also I live in Denver CO. Our summers are warm (occasional 90 degree days), but it's not like we live in Texas, Arizona, or Nevada where the sun can be blistering. Bottom Line: The PDL-TRK-4 is a superior product for mounting rope lights which is easy to install and incredibly sturdy. But be warned if you plan to use it outdoors where it is susceptible to sunlight year round, it won't last despite it's "UV" rating.

Pros:
Easy to cut with hand cutters. Not brittle. Holds rope light securely. Great customer service from Pegasus. Sturdy Holds rope light securely Easy to cut and drill
Cons:
Not UV resistant after 1 year in the sun; has yellowed and cracked

Good product

This mounting channel worked as described and at a very competitive price.
Cons:
Needed to drill holes for mounting screws. Very easy to drill holes. Not an issue that prevented purchase of this item.

Quality!
May 25, 2013
This channel is of very high quality, very sturdy and easy to install. Cut the channel using a carbide blade in a power miter saw and it worked perfectly. Just make a slow cut. Predrilled the holes and it was up in a matter of minutes.

A quality product that more than fulfills its purpose.



Questions & Answers
By Marge from Arizona on November 10, 2013
We plan to use mounting channel in twenty feet length under a tiled patio stairway. Will be using industrial glue to adhere the channel to the tile. It will be outdoors, and somewhat protected. No snow or frost here in Arizona. Any comments about whether the mount will hold or if the glue will destroy the mounting channel?
By Jacob from Pegasus Lighting on November 11, 2013

Answer:
Marge,

Your plan sounds fine - I would suggest making sure the glue is suitable for securing plastic and for use outdoors but other than that I don't see any issues.

By James Michalski from Cape Coral, FL on December 19, 2012
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
By Dale from California on December 19, 2012

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.
By Billy Goode from Yuma, Arizona on December 19, 2012

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.
By Jesse from Memphis, TN on December 27, 2012

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.

By Mike Reckley from Florida on July 26, 2014
Would like to use this product for mounting LED lights around the upper concrete ceiling on my lanai about 60 feet in Florida. How should it be adhered to the surface? Silicone caulk? Screwed? Looking for suggestions after purchase. And is this channel product fit for my LED lights? Are their different size LED lights and channels? Trying to get it right the first time.
By Bob from Omaha, NE on July 27, 2014

Answer:
Channel works great for 1/2" rope light. It is a tight fit. I used a rubber mallet to tap it in. I used 1" wood screws to attach the channel to my wooden soffits. I also pre drilled holes through the channel.
By Larry Gasda from Bethlehem, PA on July 27, 2014

Answer:
I tried to screw them on but the heads of the screws caused the lights to bulge where the screws where. You need to either countersink the screws or use a nail with a head that has a very low profile. I actually sent the channels back as I didn't like the way the lights looked inside them along with the attachment issue. I found the clips spaced 6 in apart keep the lights nice and straight and provide better illumination from the lights. I realize this isn't the answer you may be looking for but it was my experience.

By Alan from Los Angeles on October 2, 2013
We are building new stairs and I want to install these under the stairs. Is it better to put it inside the concrete when we are building the stairs or just screw it after we built the stairs.
By Jacob from Pegasus Lighting on October 3, 2013

Answer:
Alan,

I would recommend attaching them after you build the stairs.
