No. The lighting is in a clear rubber tube and it has a closed, sealed end. So if you need a longer length, you have to buy another set of rope lighting and simply install it / continue it where the other rope ends. This is exactly what I did.

No. The lighting is in a clear rubber tube and it has a closed, sealed end. So if you need a longer length, you have to buy another set of rope lighting and simply install it / continue it where the other rope ends. This is exactly what I did.
As a note, I bought four of these and they are on the same deck's railing -- so they have the same sun exposure. Two have weathered pretty substantially, with the tubing turning brown / yellow and milky, while the other two strands remain more clear (but still not as crystal clear as when new). The result is half of the rope lighting is still "normal" and white-ish, the other is visibly dull and worn and the rope lights do not have the same intensity / brightness. Which makes for an cruddy looking deck decoration! My guesstimate is these really only have about a 2 year useful life -- which is when I bought mine. Maybe if this is a newer improved version, it will literally weather things better. Read Less

Answer: 
I would not attempt to add additionl lights, it is just as easy to purchase another set with the solar charger. I have three set around my patio.
The batteries and solar charger are sized for maximum charging and length of time for lighting of the rope lights, more lights in the string would probably shorten but lighting time and coulld reduce battery light.
Additionally changes would void the warrenty.

Can we use these rope lights to light up a sign?

Our little church is located on a deserted country road and the entrance is a distance from any electrical source. We are on a low budget but want a sign to provide notice of where to make the turn on the road to the church at night. Will these lights be able to serve the purpose? It is South Texas and usually very sunny during the day.
Thank you,
Suzie

Answer: 
Maybe not. The plastic is thick so may not bend well.
Better off with solar Christmas type lights, regular wire for this.
You can try it. Save your receipt though.

Answer: 
These would help call attention to the sign, but I don't think they would illuminate the words. You could use a couple of strands to outline the sign so it could be seen. There are also solar spot lights that work well to light the sign and the words. Our church had a similar issue and we are using solar spot lights.
It just depends on what you need.
Hope this helps.

Hey Suzie,
Thank you for your question.
Solar lighting is a great option for when you can't get to an electrical source.
You didn't say what size of the sign you have nor if there will be any trees blocking it from getting light.
While rope light, if done properly, can work for lighting up a sign, it actually be better if you chose instead a Solar Spot Light to focus on the sign better.

Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 106 reviewers.
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Good at first... Bought one rope and installed about 8" from the ground along 8' of steps. Worked great, stayed on through the entire night so we bought a second rope to line the other side of the steps (about 42" away). The two ropes worked great for a couple of weeks and now the first rope is not working. I made sure the panel was clean and replaced the battery. Still not working. I called the customer service number on the USE AND CARE GUIDE and they told me to return to The Home Depot. June 30, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Terrible and Cheap bought these about a month ago and already they have stopped working, they have not been moved around, stepped on or taken any other form of abuse,,,,,, they simply quit working July 14, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Perfect I bought two sets of these solar light two or three years ago at our local Home Depot. They work great and are still going. They are installed on the length of my patio and provide just the right amount of light at night to be able to enjoy the stars, but not run into your patio furniture. I wanted another string to run along another deck project, but the store didn't have them. Bought them online and they arrived in a nondescript box marked made in China. The other two were Hampton Bay lights. I don't know if this new unit is the same quality, but it's been working well for a month now. May 31, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice outdoor lighting Easy installation. Very happy with the look and performance of our lights in our outdoor patio. July 26, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Pricey It lasted about two years and then died. Mounting hardware is cheaply made. However, this lasted better than anything I bought online. August 2, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Waste of money and time Bought first one. Didn't charge up after two days. Returned it. Bought second. Wouldn't charge. Lost my receipt on that one. Now I have a solar-nada. Waste of time. June 26, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Poor Quality We have now purchased 3 sets of the lighting. Two of the three have failed; not holding a charge and the glass solar panels have fallen out. Taking the product back again and going to try one more time. June 23, 2016
