I have an existing hardwired fluorescent fixture under the cabinets which I would like to change to this product but already have a hardwire with no receptacle. I would like to keep the transformer in the cupboard above so as to see no visible wires.

Answer: 
The transformer is the only part of the set-up that can be hardwired to 120 volts. You can cut off the plug and connect wires to existing house wires making sure you keep the polarity correct. Ribbed wire is neutral (white) and smooth wire is common (black).

Answer: 
It could be but you will have to make sure of your voltage when connecting these lights to the existing circuit. These require 120 volts ac and some hard wired installations have a ballast or transformer bring the voltage down and some converting to DC so you should put a voltmeter on the source to insure you are using the correct voltage.

Generally, NO. All the kits I have read the fine print on have come shipped with the maximum length installed. I saw other products on the internet that must be assembled from a much longer roll. But, they all leave it all on you to find and assemble a power supply, (dimmer) control and the lights for your own design configuration. Do not overload the power supply. I prefer to stick with packaged kits Read More

Answer: 
Sadly this is a question best suited for the manufacturer. I had the same dilemma and decided to simply wire in a second transformer and light strip for my last set of cabinets. The transformer has its capacity marked on the tag but there is very little to tell me what the current draw for the lights are; so rather than risk overloading the transformer I felt it safest to wire in a second one.

Answer: 
Instructions state the power supply is rated for a single 8' LED strip only. I found it would operate an additional 8' strip with no loss of brightness but felt the load would be too much over time. The safest way is to follow the recommendation or purchase a larger power supply.

Absolutely! I did a similar "split" for two sections of under-cabinet lighting where one side was about 5' and the other was about 4'. I cut the connector supplied in the kit and spliced in a length of solid double wire (~4') to create a much longer connector. I recommend using an offset splice on each wire of the splice, soldering the joints, and using appropriately sized shrink tube to finish off the Read More
Absolutely! I did a similar "split" for two sections of under-cabinet lighting where one side was about 5' and the other was about 4'. I cut the connector supplied in the kit and spliced in a length of solid double wire (~4') to create a much longer connector. I recommend using an offset splice on each wire of the splice, soldering the joints, and using appropriately sized shrink tube to finish off the connections. Also, it might not matter, but I took care to maintain polarity at the far end of the new connector.
A word of advice on the connection to the light tape: this snap connector is good in concept, but a little sketchy in practice (and no real instructions). I ended up carefully shaving away some of the silicone encapsulation material on the light tape to make it easier to get a good connection. Even then, I had to go back and re-tweak this about a month after install after the downstream leg of the tape began flickering due to an intermittent connection. The message here is to arrange your wiring such that you still have access to do tweaking if necessary inside your curio cabinet. Good luck!

Answer: 
You might be able to do it, but I was not able. Even with lots of experience in electrical work, I was unable to get a connection through the connectors. Removing the plastic insulation on the light strip was virtually impossible. I finally used a hot utility knife blade to get the plastic off. very tedious. Even then, I could never make the connections work. Good luck.

Rated 3.8 out of 5 by 53 reviewers.
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Could not get these to work I bought these to light a dark corner in my kitchen. I cut where indicated and could not get the other half to work where I cut. I took them back to Home Depot and the depot associate spent a good 30 minutes helping me to make them work. He even did a new cut to be sure we had a good connection. Still didn't work. Home Depot gave me my money back. Dang.....I had really hoped these would function September 3, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Indoor LED Flexible Tape Light Kit Super easy to work with, only took a couple minutes to mount. Can trim it to length every couple inches on the string with sharp scissors or a utility knife. Dimmer is nice to change the amount of light you want / need. The light it gives off is very white, not at all yellowish like some other undercounter systems I have seen before. August 23, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AMAZING AND POWERFUL Purchased these LED Strip LIghts for a Project I was doin for my girlfriend for Christmas, shes always wanted a custom giraffe vanity. so instead of the typical balloon style bulb I researched and came across these. The feature that attracted me to them was the fact that they were dimmable and the strips were flexible. lets just say it came out amazing and she fell in love with the outcome immediately. February 10, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Looks great when installed Would have rated five stars, but had to return and get a new package due to it missing the connector to splice ribbon together. August 9, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice undermount LED This light worked perfect for the bottom of a bookshelf over a desk. It is plenty bright to light up the whole desk. It was very easy to trim to length and stick to the bottom of the shelf and connect the power supply. August 2, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by cutting led tape cutting the tape was a cinch. However, cleaning off the plastic to get the connector to close and latch was a real bear, even with a new Olfa blade. Had trouble getting good contact. July 15, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent for under kitchen cabinets This lights worked perfectly under our kitchen cabinets! There is only 3/4in space under the cabinets, but the lights are completely hidden and were really easy to install. My husband drilled holes through the cabinet to hide the cable and the dimmer switch. The dimmer is great for night lighting. The only small complaint is they are suppose to be warm led but I think they are more cool led, my husband likes the led cool but I would like them to look more warm. June 30, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Worked perfectly on my simple well fitted application. Worked perfectly on my simple well fitted application. My 8.5' shop bench riser was nicely lit. No cutting or angling the strip in any way, just used the hardware included to secure driver to under side of riser and plugged it in.
