so you just bought some new LED lighting

strips but need to customize the lengths

well today I'll show you how most of the

time you're going to be able to simply

connect them like this using a male to

male connector just make sure you line

up the arrows but a number of different

occasions will call for you to cut the

wires and either create new ends or

solder extensions so I'm going to show

you how always cut on the copper

connections you'll find every two inches

yourself remove the plastic to reveal

the circuits and make sure you remove

enough to expose the letters too you can

create a new end or connect two lines

directly now in a pinch you may need to

solder two together directly but more

likely you'll probably just want to add

a separate lead for stretches you won't

want lights but need to keep a line
