How to install Solderless connectors for LED strip lighting?

*Cut along the marked line, and tear a little bit of 3M backing tape from the mark. ?If 3M tape is not peeled off a little, it will be harder to insert the strip into the connector.

*Lightly pull the black plastic lockout from the solderless connector. Pulling too hard may damage the LED solderless connector.

*Insert strip into the solderless connector. There are two sides to the connecting tray – make sure the wider of the white sides faces up. This is the top.

*Make sure the soldering pads fully touch the conjunction metal.

*Push the plastic lock back towards the middle into the lock position. Be gentle and make sure the mounting tray is securely closed or the lights will not light up. Double check the markings of (+) and (-) to make sure which color wire corresponds to each.

*For long-term use, try and use liquid tape or a bonding material to make sure the connector does not become loose.
