Perfect for under-cabinet lighting
on December 28, 2012
I have been researching these strip lights for some time now as an alternative to the under-cabinet "puck" style lights as our cabinets to not have the filler strip to hide the pucks or any under cabinet light fixture. Found this kit at a local wharehouse store and decided to give it a try. Installation did require a "jumper" wire (found on Amazon) to "jump" over the stove to the cabinets on the opposite side of the stove. Installation was very simple and I simply used small strips of 3M Exterior Mounting tape (also available on Amazon) to secure the wire to the underside/back edge of the cabinet to hide it. The strips themselves mount easily to the underside of the cabinet after cleaning the surface with rubbing alcohol to remove any oil or residue to ensure a good bond. The range of the remote is also very good and the colors, dimming feature, and other modes (fade, flash, etc.) are perfect if you don't want a simple white look. I do want to mention one thing to take notice of and that's the positioning of the strip near a wall. I placed the strips about 2 inches from the wall which gave it a nice blended look but in one area I had to mount the strip closer to the wall due to a paper towel holder so I can actually see the separation in the light as the strip is about an inch from the wall at the end of the counter. Nothing bad but it is noticeable if you place the strip too close to the wall.
