Common Rope Light Questions

Can rope light be cut?

150 foot rope light spools can be cut using the indicator marks located on the tubing itself. Indicator marks are typically represented by either a dashed line or a scissors icon. This is the only place rope light should be cut. The distance between the cut marks will vary depending on the rope light, so it's important to measure your space and choose the cut mark closest to that measurement. After rope light is cut, a variety of accessories can be connected to the cut end to accommodate your specific design configurations. Click here to view our rope light accessory collection.

What are the differences in rope light wire count?

Wire count is the number of wires running through a rope light tube. 2 wire is the most popular choice for steady light. 3, 4, and 5 wire rope light allows for animation and special effects when paired with a controller. When planning for your project, each rope light run and any corresponding accessories should have matching wire counts.

Which voltage should I choose?

120V is the most common type of rope light and is ideal for most indoor and outdoor lighting projects where an electrical outlet is accessible. 12V (DC) rope light uses a converter or battery for its power supply and is typically used for parade floats, bikes, boats, and low voltage landscape lighting.

How is rope light mounted or secured to a surface?

The answer to this question will vary depending on your specific project. Some common mounting techniques for rope light include mounting clips and crocodile clips which are designed specifically to hold light tubes, garden staples or U stakes for landscape applications, rope light channels for under-cabinet lighting, and zip ties when working with shapes or framework.
