Rope Light Track is Perfect!!

Submitted by |

I installed rope lighting on my patio about 12 years ago using clips. I removed the rope lighting so I could paint the paint. A lot of the clips broke when I was removing the rope light so when I was ready to reinstall the rope light I was searching for another alternative. I searched the internet and found Pegasus. Their 1/2" rope lighting track came in 4 foot lengths and was reasonably priced. I ordered 18 pieces and was so pleased with the installation I ordered an additional 15 pieces. The lighting is now straight and even (no sagging) and the track was really easy to install with a pneumatic stapler. Note that the impact of the staple sometimes cracks the plastic but the cracking is minor and does not affect the overall installation. If I were a purist I could have drilled holes and screwed the pieces on but I am thoroughly satisfied with the performance of the tracks.

Pegasus filled my order quickly and I was able to complete my rope lighting installation in a timely manner. I have already recommended Pegasus to my friends.

Different use

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.

High quality product

Submitted by |

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 16in 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. NOTE: Images can be found at http://images.pegasuslighting.com/reviews/

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

Perfect

Submitted by |

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.

Quality!

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.

Easy to use/install

Submitted by |

I ordered these to be installed on our pergola. The installation was simple and looks clean. I would suggest pre-drilling any holes because the plastic is a little soft.

Pros:
Easy to use Holds lights securely Aesthetically pleasing

Cons:
A little expensive for what it is No bundled packs available

Nice channel for 1/2in rope lights

Submitted by |

I just finished mounting 96 feet of this channel around my deck. The rope light looks great - very straight. I originally used clips and the rope light sagged in places. I am very pleased so far. I pre drilled 3 holes for each 4ft piece - very easy to mount.

Pros:
They work great, easy to mount, cannot see the channels at night with lights on.

Cons:
nothing

Was this review helpful? YesNo

Nice product

Submitted by |

The channel fit perfectly to my rope light. I did have to pre-drill holes in the channel so it wouldn't crack and that did the trick. The rope light shines through the sides perfectly without much loss of light as I have the light shining through the channel.

Ask a Question

Question from Marge:

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?

Answer from Pegasus:

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.

Question from Alan:

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.

Answer from Pegasus:

Alan, I would recommend attaching them after you build the stairs.
