Has anyone attached the Wyze Light Strip Pro to a wood deck rail? #light-strip, light-strip-pro
I’ve installed other LED strip lights before to my deck rail, but shortly after the adhesive backing fails, and the light droop and eventually fall off.
I was wondering if anyone has had any success in adding Wyze Light Strip Pro to a wood deck rail.
You can buy tracks that led strips fit into. Some tracks can be mounted with screws, nails, etc for a more permanent installation. Some are plastic and some metal or aluminum.
You should probably consider that the strips aren’t meant for outdoor use…
From what I’ve read none of the adhesive on any brand’s strips can be trusted for long term use - even just indoors - and you have to use staples, brad nails, tracks, and the like.
And you should be careful with water. These are not really waterproof. If water collects in a track, it will eventually short out. “led light strip track waterproof” on Amazon found some decent ones
I’ve seen some that are tubes that seem like they world work outdoors.
My staple gun has a wire gaurd to hold back the steel Beast! I stapled mine to the underneath of the handrail. Survived 5 years, 5 winters. Great light for stairs, dogs loved it.
