How to make 360 degree round waterproof lighting

When it comes to threading LED light strips through silicone neon tubes, the process can vary based on the length of the tube. Here’s a breakdown of the methods used for different lengths:

For 1-3 Meter Tubes:

  • The traditional and practical method involves utilizing the internal line within the silicone tube to wrap and secure the LED light strip. With this method, one person can easily handle the operation without encountering unexpected issues.

For Tubes Longer Than 3 Meters:

  • When dealing with longer tubes, there is a higher risk of the internal line breaking or getting stuck during the pulling process. This can lead to inefficiencies and often requires two individuals working together to complete the task.
  • To overcome challenges with longer silicone neon tubes, it is recommended to use a third-party tool for assistance.

For Tubes Exceeding 3 Meters:

  • To address the difficulty of threading LED light strips through tubes longer than 3 meters, consider using an air compressor with an air nozzle. This setup helps flatten the tube and light strip to prevent bending and potential damage during insertion.
  • The operator at the front end should secure the line to the LED light strip conventionally. Meanwhile, the operator at the rear end can utilize the rigidity of the PCB light strip to insert a section into the inner tube of the silicone neon tube.
  • By directing high-pressure air through the air nozzle towards the inner tube of the silicone neon tube, the internal line will straighten out due to the force of the compressed air. This method allows for easier extraction of the line at the rear end by pulling gently.

By employing these techniques and tools, such as air compressors and careful handling, the challenge of threading LED light strips through excessively long silicone neon tubes can be effectively addressed, ensuring a smoother and more efficient installation process.

Materials Needed:

  • LED Light Strips
  • Silicone Tubes
  • End Caps with and without holes
  • Power Cable
  • Cotton Thread

Step-by-Step Guide:

  1. Prepare Materials: Gather all the required materials, including LED light strips, silicone tubes, end caps, power cables, and cotton thread.
  2. Customize LED Strips: Connect the LED light strips to achieve the desired length, such as 5 meters. For creating a 360-degree illumination effect, solder two identical lengths of LED strips together, back-to-back, and connect them in parallel with a power cable.
  3. Test LED Strips: Before inserting the LED strips into the silicone tube, test them to ensure they are functioning correctly.
  4. Insert Cotton Thread: Tie a cotton thread to the end of the LED strip and insert it into the silicone tube. The length of the cotton thread should be longer than the silicone tube.
  5. Insert LED Strips: Using a compressor’s air nozzle, blow air through the cotton thread to push it into the silicone tube. As the cotton thread emerges from the other end of the tube, gently pull it to guide the LED light strips smoothly into the tube.
  6. Final Testing: Once the LED strips are fully inserted into the silicone tube, test them again to confirm they are working correctly.
  7. Install End Caps: If everything is in working order, securely install the end caps on both ends of the silicone tube to seal the waterproof lighting setup.
