Easy to install, looks amazing, dimmable
A little difficult going around tight corners, but that's because of the thicker wrapping to weatherproof it. Wish it had a 2700K color temperature option

Low energy use
Connects with metal screws...velcro would be a better option.
Question from Russ:
Answer from Pegasus:The 106-foot requirement includes the lighting strip and any connectors (but not the initial power cord). The 106-foot restriction is based on the total amperage and voltage drop.
Question from Brian:
Answer from Pegasus:Brian, I would suggest using a simpler dimmer. My understanding is that the Caseta is an intricate dimming system. These types of dimmers have a habit of causing light leakage with LED systems. The manufacturer recommends using the Lutron Credenza plug-in style dimmer for this plug-in rope light kit.
Question from Rachel:
Answer from Pegasus:Rachel, yes, 3000K light will be a warm white light. It's slightly less warm than incandescent sources which tend to be 2700K.
Question from Ray:
Answer from Pegasus:Wiring an outlet to a dimmer is a violation of the NEC. Because of this the manufacturer recommends using the Lutron Credenza Plug-In Dimmer for CFL-LED loads. Basically you plug the fixture into the dimmer and then the dimmer plugs into an outlet. Many of our customers have an electrician cut the power cord and hardwire the LED tape-rope to a wall dimmer. This of course voids the warranty since you are cutting the power cord.
Question from hugh granger:
Answer from Pegasus:No, these cannot be run on a boat battery. They are line voltage (120V) only. We do not have these in red. Thanks!
Question from Jeff:
Answer from Pegasus:Yes, there will be a gap in the lighting because the built-in linking connections on each end of the tape-rope do not have LEDs. The manufacturer recommends using the Lutron Credenza Plug-In Dimmer for CFL-LED loads.
Question from Allen:
Answer from Pegasus:It's suitable for wet locations so it can handle the moisture. The manufacturer does not recommend using in temperatures above 90 degrees F because the life of the LEDs will be diminished. I would suggest following these recommendations since it will constantly be exposed to moisture. For any installation that will remain outdoors for long periods of time, all of the electrical conductors should be coated with dielectric grease (protects electrical connections from salt, dirt, and corrosion) and the outside of the couplers should be thoroughly sealed with silicone caulk after they have been securely tightened. There are a few accessories that you may need for your installation, including plastic mounting track and linking extensions.
Question from Glenn:
Answer from Pegasus:Glenn, No, the kits are not 3.3ft sections linked together.
Question from Kadi:
Answer from Pegasus:Kadi, you'll want to consult with an electrician to be sure but it is my understanding that dimming switched outlets is now a violation of the NEC. However, I think using a simple switch instead of a dimmer connected to the outlet would be fine.
Question from Sandra Thomson:
Answer from Pegasus:Sandra, it would be great for backlighting a poster box. I do not think heat would be an issue. Yes, it can turns at corners. Shaping around corners can be a challenge but using the including mounting clips to secure it will aid in a clean turn. You cannot trim this product so any excess length must remain. My recommendation is to try to fit as closely as possible with a single kit. If you go over a little bit, you could adjust the corners or just overlap a small section.
Question from Peter Wandelt:
Answer from Pegasus:It would likely be ideal to line both the top and bottom of the display case. It will be easy to install along the bottom. The top is a challenge because it uses screws and mounting clips to attach to a surface. You would need to drill holes. We do carry a variety of tape lights, including some with 3M adhesive on the back that would work better for lining the top of a display case.
Question from Sarah:
Answer from Pegasus:Sarah, It's suitable for use outdoors, so yes it's fine to use in Fla. Yes, you can use the mounting channel outdoors. In regards to the lighting effect and placement, that's completely an aesthetic decision. You can place at the top of the enclosure for a cove lighting effect, along the bottom for an accent light, or along a rail/joist.
Question from Richard Kamins:
Answer from Pegasus:Richard, No, you cannot connect these to a 12V transformer. These are 120V line voltage kits that plug into a wall outlet.
Question from Rebecca:
Answer from Pegasus:Each series is about 36in long, so if an LED fails then about 36in of the light will not function. So yes, you would need to replace the entire section. Please do note that the product carries a 1-year warranty.
Question from Gia:
Answer from Pegasus:Yes, it would work well for under cabinet lighting. You can view all of our plug-in under cabinet lights on this page - http://www.pegasuslighting.com/under-cabinet-lighting-plug-in.html
Question from Rox:
Answer from Pegasus:No, it is a plug-in kit only.
Question from Ed:
Answer from Pegasus:Ed, I think that would be a great use of rope light. One issue is that these kits are 120V line voltage. Most vehicles have low voltage circuits.
Question from Carol Geyer:
Answer from Pegasus:Carol, Both applications you have suggested are great uses for this product. Thanks
Question from LW:
Answer from Pegasus:No, I'm sorry. These are not available in custom lengths.
Question from Gary Spraker:
Answer from Pegasus:Gary, They are dimmable with standard line voltage incandescent dimmers.
Question from Oliver:
Answer from Pegasus:The LEDs at the ends are about 1/4in from the edge.
Question from Oliver:
Answer from Pegasus:Oliver, I'm sorry for the delay. I've requested the footcandles chart from the manufacturer. This is a new item from them, so they might not have this data yet. This tape-rope is brighter than the rope light you reference, so I would expect the footcandles to be brighter, too.
Question from RWN:
Answer from Pegasus:These tape-rope lights are best for simple task lighting under cabinets or for ambient/mood lighting for coves, decks, etc. Recessed lights will be much brighter but I'm not sure what exactly you mean by unobtrusive. Whatever you choose, I would suggest placing on a dimmer so you can control the light levels.
Question from JohnM:
Answer from Pegasus:John, You can turn corners with the tape-rope but they will bunch slightly at the point of the turn. They turn much easier than rope light due to the flat shape. If you want a seamless look, then you will need to use extensions.
Question from James Love:
Answer from Pegasus:James, No, this tape light does not use a controller. It simply plugs into power to turn on/off.
Question from lenore horowitz:
Answer from Pegasus:It's suitable for wet locations. What that means is that it's OK to be installed in places that are exposed to rain/snow/sleet. I would not recommend using it in a place where there will be any standing water or where it will be sitting in water for an extended period of time. It sounds like there would be some standing water where you would install it so I would not recommend using it.
Question from Dennis:
Answer from Pegasus:Dennis, this product is not considered cuttable because there's no means of re-sealing the cut end and cutting it will void the safety listings and warranty.
Question from Tom Anderson:
Answer from Pegasus:This product comes with a power cord attached to the tape-rope. If you want to hardwire it, you would have to cut the product, thus voiding the warranty and the UL safety listing. If you'd like to control the brightness so that it's not too bright for your application or if you'd like to change the brightness depending on the scene, you should use Lutron's plug-in Credenza dimmer for C-L loads. It works very well with this product. You can find it on the Accessories.
Question from John:
Answer from Pegasus:This rope light is not field cuttable.
Question from Kelly:
Answer from Pegasus:This item is rated for wet locations and should work well for your display.
