Cutting LED Strip LightsLED strip lights offer up some of the best ways of providing general purpose illumination or ambient lighting, with unprecedented levels of freedom.

The strips themselves can be shortened or lengthened as required. Whilst this is possible to do yourself, not everyone feels up to the task – that’s where we come in.

We now offer a bespoke cutting and soldering service at no cost to you! It’s absolutely free for the first 3 cuts! So from now on, when you send us your measurements, we won’t charge you anything to change the length of your tape.

Our team of electrical experts will do all the hard work for you. This includes:

  • Cutting
  • Soldering
  • Linking
  • Heat-shrinking

The first 3 cuts are free on your order, anything beyond this is charged dependent on the type of LED tape you have - £1 plus VAT for single colour tape and £1.35 plus VAT for colour changing  tape.

The intervals at which the strip lights can be cut also varies depending on which tape you have. If your strip lights have:

  • 30 LEDs per metre, they can be cut every 10cm,
  • 60 LEDs per metre, they can be cut every 5cm, or
  • 120 LEDs per metre, they can be cut every 2.5cm.

Other ranges have differing cutting lengths too. Our RBGW tape has 60 LEDs per metre but can only be cut every 10cm due to their LED arrangement.

Cutting lengths are also doubled for 24V tape too.

For a simpler option, you could also take a look at our range of LED strip light kits that come in pre-determined lengths ready cut for you.

Rest assured our team have years and years of experience between them, and always do a fantastic job! That said, any tape you buy from us come with a 2 year manufacturer as standard if anything does go wrong.

This warranty is extendable to 5 years at no extra charge too!
