A three-foot clear mounting channel for LED rope light that is 1/2in (13mm) in diameter.
The clear 3ft UV-rated Mounting Channel is recommended for mounting a rope light in a straight line outdoors or indoors. The 3 Foot Mounting Channel is resistant to UV degradation and cracking caused by the sun. When using 3 foot sections of rope light to create step lights a Mounting Channel is positioned under a step in order to light the step below it.
These channels are heavy duty. A lot heavier then the 3/8in channels I had with the old rope lights. After reading the suggestions to use double sided tape to secure the channels, I thought I would try it. Using the tape was EASY and EFFECTIVE. Thanks for the suggestion! I would recommend this product and I will be ordering more for another project in the future.
Not a lot to say about this product other than it does what it is meant to do. Can be mounted with small screws or double sided tape (which you supply). I am using it to put a rope light under the rear seats in my Ford F150. Will work just fine. Price was right too!
I wanted to put up rope lighting around the perimeter of my basement walls to offer ambient lighting without needing normal incandescent lighting. (My basement is basically an arcade, and soft lighting is needed). I've had the rope lighting from my previous residence and wanted to install it in my new residence, but I HATED those stupid, cheap clips that come with them. I found these channels and figured it would be FAR better than the clips. I was right! I drilled small holes through the base of the channel to screw it into the wall. No cracking and is solid. Putting the rope light in the channel is tight, but once it's in, it sits nicely without pinching. There's enough room that I can slide the rope lighting in it to situate the lighting right how I need it. Yes, it's more costly than the little clips, but then again, you DO get what you pay for. This channeling is WELL worth the cost!
Pros: Easy installation Must better than clips Holds lights nice and straight Practically invisible when lights are on
