Weak Link for a Great Product

Submitted by |

The linking cable is a great concept but significantly hurt by poor quality control by the manufacturer. Of the 5 cables I used, 3 had misaligned pins. That is a very high failure rate for what should be a relatively straightforward quality check, i.e. make sure pins are set right before shipping. I highly recommend checking each male connector to ensure it plugs cleanly into the Priori before mounting. And be careful not to force a connector as a bent cable pin can push the Priori female connector out of alignment, creating more work for you to correct.

Pros:
Allows for a clean and quick installation of multiple Priori fixtures.

Cons:
Poor quality control by the manufacturer requires additional time during installation to check all pin alignments and reset any that do not mate.

Works well after a bit of adjustment

Submitted by |

These cables are sturdy, easy to install, and come with clamps that hold the cables snug against the bottom of the cabinet. However, of the six cables I installed, two or three did not immediately connect properly on one end. I discovered that one pin was misaligned in each of the bad ends. I used an awl to reach into the connector and straighten the bad pins; a very narrow screwdriver might have worked just as well, but I had an awl handy at the time. Once I did this, the connectors worked well.

Pros:
Sturdy and easy to install.

Cons:
I had to straighten the pins on a couple connectors before they would connect properly.

Great concept, that's about it

Submitted by |

We had lots of issues with these cables. For one, they are very bulky looking and hard to conceal. The big issues was with the pins. We had so many problems making sure the pins in the cable lined up with the pins in the lights. When they did, it was still a problem. Sometimes because the cable would actually push out the pins in the light fixture thereby creating no connection. We had to do much finagling with electrical tape inside the fixtures and realigning the pins In the cable. We almost sent them back, but really didn't want the hassle. I wish I could recommend them.

Pros:
Great concept If they work, easy to link fixtures

Cons:
Not a reliable connection Quality control an issue Problematic

Does not work well

This should be as simple as plugging it in and having it work. It's not. I had to fiddle with it quite a bit to get it to work, and even now it is unreliable.

From Pegasus:

I have spoken to this customer over the phone regarding his issue. Doug is correct, this should not be that hard. Doug will look at this situation again and if necessary we will send him out a replacement linking cable.

Linking Cable for The Under Cabinet Task Lights

Submitted by |

This is a great way to have multiple light fixtures along the same surface. Rather than new lighting or replacing existing lights, the electrician only has to wire one light, therefore the costs are minimized. Additional lights just plug into each other.

Pros:

Cons:
The links should be made in shorter lengths. 12 inches sounds short but light can be closer together. Even butted next to each other. A male/female connector with no cord between would be ideal, as well.

Poor Quality Connectors

Submitted by |

After installing the xenon under cabinet lights, we used two of the linking cables to attach four different lights and in each case, the connector pins were misaligned and did not fit securely into the lights. As is, the connectors are barely secured and fall out easily because I was afraid of forcing them into the lights and breaking actual lighting fixtures. Also, at one point the connector fell out of an active light, which blew out the bulb at the end of the chain. I had to drive to three different hardware stores to locate the correct bulb. This took me over two hours. This is time that could have been much better spent on a Sunday. At this point, I've come to the conclusion that these linking cables are grossly inadequate and that the lights should be hardwired to each other instead. The lights are equipped for this and it will only take another 5-10 minutes to do the job properly. Save yourself the hassle that I went through and just hard-wire the lights to each other instead of dealing with these poor quality connectors.

Pros:
Seemingly convenient

Cons:
Connectors don't line up properly with lights. Connectors slip off easily, causing bulbs to burn out. Made poorly. Bulky.

From Pegasus:

This customer used these linking cables to link together our Xenon Line Voltage Thin Under Cabinet Task Lights, which are the most popular under cabinet lights that we sell. Many of our customers who buy these fixtures also purchase the connecting cables. In fact, we have sold over 1,300 linking cables to date and this is the first time that we have ever received this type of feedback regarding them. We were quite surprised by these comments and we immediately contacted Eric to respond to his comments. He was very gracious and thanked us for our concern and prompt reply to his issue.

Ask a Question

Question from Bree Metherall:

Can more than one linking cable be joined together to connect two fixtures separated by a range hood? The 36in cable won't provide enough room - can I join together two 24in cables?

Answer from Pegasus:

Yes, the linking cables can interconnect. Please be sure you consult with an electrician to make sure you are following electrical codes.

Question from Craig:

How many light fixtures can be linked together. In one section I'd like to do four. The other sections will two's.

Answer from Pegasus:

Craig, The max run depends on the light fixtures you will be using (LED, Xenon, or Fluorescent). For the LED, the max run is 360W. For the Xenon, the max run is 600W. For the Fluorescent, the max run is 600W. Your setup won't come close to these maximums.

Question from J Singh:

Can someone tell me what is the size of a hole I'll need to drill in the base of a cabinet if I need to connect 2 lights across 2 cabinets?

Answer from Pegasus:

The width of the adapter for the connecting cable (043A) is 1 3/16".
