  • MAX WATTAGE: 72W max wattage, these connectors can be used for both low and high wattage light strip.
  • FIREPROOF MATERIAL: They are not made from cheap flimsy plastic like others. They are made from PBT material,which is heat resistant, anti-burning and no Fire Hazard.
  • GOOD PERFORMANCE: The led light strip can be locked and connnected very tightly by the connector. 4 Pin LED Light Strip Connector better than the corner connectors because you don't waste space with the wires that connect them, the two strips literally join together right at this connector.
  • EASY TO USE: Open the wire clip. It should snap open with just a little effort.Insert your 10mm LED light strip inside the clip underneath the two contact prongs, making sure the side of the strip aligns with the + symbol.Close Snap the wire clip shut. Gently pull on the wire to confirm you've secured the strip inside the connector. If you need to solder it with light strip cable, you had better use less tin in order to avoid short circuit.
  • PACKAGE:20 x 10MM 4 Pin For 5050 SMD RGB led strip Non-Waterproof. MAKE SURE you put the led strip under the pins and not on top. Also be sure to cut along the suggested line evenly so there is room for a proper connection on each side.

Simon Cowell? It s gonna be a no for me. Imagine taking one connection and magically turning it into 4 loose connections. That s what you get with this product.You know those little blue 3m snap on connectors that allow you to splice into a wire and connect another wire? Yeah, that s not these. The pins that pierce the contact points are tiny and weak. And everything wiggles. It s near impossible to line them up correctly. How impossible you ask? Imagine pooping out the window of a Boeing 747 at 10,000 feet and trying to drop it into the sunroof of a car on the freeway down below going the opposite direction at 100 mph and that should give you some idea of how frustratingly impossible it is to line these connectors up. I can t fully describe how bad an experience awaits those stupidly idealistic enough to purchase this product. I ve done low voltage wiring for decades. Trust me. Get a soldering iron, some 60/40 solder, 22 AWG insulated wire and some RTV silicone do this project the right way, and never try to poop out an airplane window. Sky marshals hate that and it s not pretty. 1Not reliableThese were simply not reliable... There's no way to secure the strips to them unless you know how to solder for one. Secondly no matter what I did, I could not get a decent connection on these. Whatever strips were down the line would be missing a color. Overall I was not happy, and ended up purchasing another brand.1Nice try, but it's finicky at that pointThese things work, but they are a pain.First, you open the clip, insert the LED strip contacts under the pins and close the clip.Nice try, but it's finicky at that point.Issues, the clip won't hold under any tension and contact is week. So, here are some fixes.On the LED strip, figure out what side is down for the clip, then, cut a very small square of electrical tape and acid to the strip, maybe 2 pieces if you have that cheap 5 mil tape. This thicker LED end will now fit a bit more snug and make much more reliable contact.Next, use a drop of hot glue to keep everything from moving (do this with your LED lights ON).If you are soldering these to the ends of RGB wire, work fast and use thin solder, the plastic will melt otherwise.These could be better, maybe metal clips biting into the wire would help, but with some creativeness you will get by with these.4Needed one but glad It came in a pack of TwentyPreparing the LED Strip is the hardest part. Using a razor knife it is easy to cut through and cut the wire strip and then have to go to the next cut sight. Anyway getting the clear plastic cut at the right length and then removing it to the correct length and then making sure the FOUR contact points are inline, you have to slip the led connection under the tabs. found this to be just too hard and used a thin screwdriver to gently bend the connections up just enough to slide the strip under them and be in the proper spot to have contact when clip is closed. Went through Five before getting TWO LED strips to work as ONE. leave a piece of the removed tape from the adhesive to keep the thin strip stiff and will help in making a better connection. Before snapping clips make sure the splice makes the connection work.2Bad connectivity...you pay for what you get! (Customer support made it right (7/20/2018))These are definitely not worth buying. I don't know how the other reviewers that gave this product more than 1 star managed to get these to work. I have messed with LED light strips for quite some time. I have always soldered them with no issues. I figured I'd save some time buy buying these connectors. Ended up wasting more time trying to get them to work than it would have taken me to solder my LEDs together. The connectivity is horrible. No matter how many connectors, light strips or what end I used these would not get the lights to either light or get the RGB colors to light correctly. I even scraped the ends to make sure there was no plastic ensuring metal to metal connectivity. Not sure why these didn't work. I can only assume the metal used is not a good conductor. If you made these work, please tell me how!7/20/2018...I received a full refund from the seller JACKYLED which was a nice surprise since I didn't request it initially...they offered either replacement or refund. I chose the refund. Maybe I got a bad batch. They didn't request a product return which was nice. Maybe I'll experiment with what I have and update again later. This is what they sent below. Made a difference to me so I'm adding a star.We have refunded to your account, please check it. We really hope the refund and our apologize can make up for this unpleasant shopping experience.Any question in the future, please feel free to contact us, we ll do our best to support you.Sorry for the inconvenience.2Great 90* couplings for LED Tape lights - SEE SAFETY ISSUE There is not much really to say about these -- they work with all standard LED tape lights. There are some things you need to be aware of:If you are using the rubberized waterproof tape lights, you will need to CAREFULLY strip back some of the rubber coating in order for these to work.I used a sharp single edged blade and cut straight down and was able to peel it back.Also, do a dry-run on a table with connectors and such on a table before sticking them to the surface. All the wires need to match all the way through and the connectors will FIT in both orientations, but only one will work. These are well marked and will facilitate proper connections.EDIT: 8 months after installation, there was a small electrical issue. See attached photo. Over the course of a week or so, I noticed that the lights on one side of the junction were flickering, then eventually turned off completely. Upon investigation I learned that the connector had burned up.I am leaving the rating where it was initially as this could have been installation error that took time to manifest. 5Lengthy, in-depth, yet detailed product review - with photos and (IMO) some good advice Okay, I will give credit where credit is due by stating that these 90 LED connectors are well-built, very inexpensive, neatly packaged, and do the trick...that is, I'm guessing "90% " of the time. However, there was just one small "hang up": these 90 L-shaped connectors are NOT universal; meaning, that (for instance) in order to effectively work, one needs to make sure that they have lined up their strips to match the wiring structure of the L-shaped 90 (Pic 1).But some may ask, "Why does this matter?" or better yet, "What's so difficult about that?" Well, in all truthfulness, there is nothing hard about it; that is, unless you, unlike myself, had actually started off with all the necessary materials and parts that would be needed. So, being that I did not, I would say it's fairly likely that many people would not even encounter this as being an issue. Nonetheless, I did, so I am fairly certain that I am not alone in this matter. Therefore, I sure that others could benefit by hearing the story (both that of the buyer, in addition to that of the manufacturer).So, take for example this scenario: Here I had wanted to place an LED strip around the top sides of my bathtub (just as I have done a few times prior). And while I do recommend double-sided 3M tape for practically all surfaces where LED strips are to be applied, especially that of a humid area like a bathtub, Aside from that, I truly cannot count the number of times that I have hung up LED strips over the last five years or so, only to have watched them (either a minute or several days after installation) come right back down/off, or look looking like sh*t. This is half in part due to the fact the backing tape (being lined with a VERY lightweight and inexpensive version of 3M tape which is far from being substantial enough to carry the load of a 18' LED's strip. ESPECIALLY WHEN HUNG UP UPSIDE DOWN AND ALONG A PORUS SURFACE SUCH ON INTERIOR WALLS, UNFINISHED WOOD (often found underneath kitchen cabinets) and on masonry (just to give a few). Therefore, with that in mind, the first thing that I did was to have placed 3M tape all around that top sections of the tub (Pic 2) (PLEASE READ BELOW ON MY RECOMMENDATION, AS YOU SIMPLY SHOULD NOT GO WITH THAT OF JUST ANY 3M TAPE (Pics 3, 4). Next, I placed my first pre-cut strip atop the already adhered 3M strip (Pics 5 & 6) having made sure to have left an exposed area of which, I had planned to connect another 5' strip to that ran along the top length of the tub. And since I only had one original L-shaped connector from the pervious set, and it was broken, I immediately ordered these expecting them to be identical to the ones I previously had. But that's when I noticed that they, of course, were different. I had two choices: try to remove the 5' strip of LED's which were already in place and adhered several days prior; simply so I could replace it with a different strip that matched the layout of these 90 angles (however, not only would that be a lot of work, but it would render that strip useless). Or I could simply find another option. I did not have connectors, nevertheless, I did find a few precut 90 wiring segments that matched the exact wiring that I had set up. Without having done this, I would not have been able to complete my project with the ones that I had ordered.If that does not make any sense, please see the photos I have attached. Lastly, I would highly recommend to the manufacturer a bit of advice that (I believe) would suit them just well, and that is to please include two different sets of prewired 90 segments; in particular, those of the: BGR+ and the +RGB varieties.Otherwise, it's a fairly good dealt through and through out. 4Works with Govee RGB Wifi LED Strip LightsI bought these to connect two strips of RGB LED Strip lights together. I was not 100% sure they would work with the Govee Wifi Waterproof Strip lights, but they work just fine. It took some time to make sure they were connected properly (had to remove the silicon on top of the waterproof strip, and sticky adhesive on the backside to make a proper connection), but all in all, not too difficult.I will say, if you are trying to power a long strand of lights, you will need a separate power supply. The last few feet of the 15 foot strip was not lighting up as brightly or with the same colors. Luckily, I only needed about 9 feet out of the 15 foot strip, so once I cut off the excess length, the strand lit up perfectly.All in all, Very happy with this purchase.5Fiddly, but with patience, they seem to work wellI was using these connectors for joining strips to strips and strips to extension cables. Connecting them to strips was fairly easy, though it isn't hard to slip and miss-align the strip when trying to close the clip. Just take your time. Connecting the clip to an extension cable, which these connectors aren't really designed for, is more difficult, but once I figured out a method that worked, I was able to make custom length extension cables fairly quickly. I was separating the four ends of cable, then paring away the insulation on one side of the wire, carefully laying the exposed wire onto the connector terminals, then clamping down. Check with a multimeter in continuity mode between adjacent terminals on the opposite side of the connector to find shorts, and between the terminals and the other end of the cable to ensure a connection. Might take a couple of attempts before a getting it right, which is where the patience comes into play.The lights have been installed for a little over a week, and so far so good. I was concerned about connections coming loose, especially when manipulating the extension cables out of view, but the only problem I had turned out to be a fault in the led strip, not the connectors.4After doing a test run the strip worked just fine and the entire procedure took less than 2 minutesI ordered these knowing they are for 10mm strips, but I used them to repair one of my 12mm 6803ic LED strips that was damaged. I cut the strip where marked to remove the damaged section and trimmed the width of each end down with a razor knife. I then slipped the exposed copper ends under each side of the connector pins and clamped it down. After doing a test run the strip worked just fine and the entire procedure took less than 2 minutes. If the lights will be on a stationary object this should work just fine, if they are on an object that is moving or subject to vibration or rattling, it may/may not hold up under pressure or may require a backing material to help hold it in place a little tighter.....will need to test that aspect further.It was so quick and easy (after attempting to solder the connections) that these clips are well worth the rather small investment! Beats throwing out an entire 5 meter strip (it was 2 feet longer than I needed anyway, lol).Will update on how well they hold up!5Quick And Easy the are great for those whom are DIY and working for tape for the first time or whom don't have access to a soldering iron/not confident in your skills.these ones seem like the usual quality, nothing wrong or bad. all the printing on the tape portion was in place.two tips with these:1: they won't work properly anywhere the tape has been solder spliced or the tabs have solder on them. they will be too thick to fit into the plastic clips of the corner. but that is the case with all these clip style connectors usually.2: as a ProTip, the tape potrion of these without the plastic connectors are a wonderful way to have clean corners on pro level installs. as long as you can do what you need in the standard tape second lengths these look better than leads for a corner and are faster to do, no wires to strip, tin, solder. 5Two tabs are flimsyThese looked like they should have been a very simple installation. It wasn't and I was unsure if they were going to work. First off the two tabs that grip the strip are VERY flimsy. On my first attempt to use a clip, they bent over and snapped right off. The other issue is that the glue on the back of the strips I was trying to connect causes a major problem. I couldn't just easily slide the strip in because of the extra thickness and the stickiness. Once I did get them in I had to do a lot of messing with it to get a good connection. Not too confident on how long the connection will last, but so far so good.3Instructions I was having a hard time figuring out how these connect, the biggest problem being that the clips are so small, I had trouble seeing them.First, the hard white plastic pieces opens, they have a cover that s opens and closes, the side that opens looks like a small box, pulls away and flips up. Obviously the best way to get these open is to use your teeth.Once you have both sides open you ll see 4...very, very small Silver prongs, the trick is to slip either the corner piece or the cut end of the LED strip pushed UNDER the Silver prongs. If you look very carefully at the side of the plastic piece with the top open you ll see a very small grove, the cut end needs to be inserted into this grove and pushed in UNDER the Silver prongs.The 12v, Red, Green, Blue must match, your completing the circuit to get the next string to light up. Hope this helps. 5Near seemless connectionsThis is the greatest thing to strip lighting since self slicing bread. I just cut the strip light at the last possible segment before the wired end that comes connected to it. It varies based on brand. Then added it to the next strip clipped the two clips and voila a seamless connection.But beware the added sections need power and reduce the maximum brightness of the entire strip. It's physics and therefore unavoidable. But you'll be the only one that notices. and maybe your wife.5Sometimes you may have to wiggle the connection side to side or make a better cut on the LED strip for all the colors ... Nothing fancy - does the job to connect RGB LED strip lighting together for the needed shapes. Some of the connections took a bit of fiddling to get all the colors to turn on, but all worked in the end.A few pieces of advice:If your lights have adhesive tape attached make sure it is removed for the amount the clips will cover (including any residue or stickyness - you may need to clean it with rubbing alcohol and a q-tip if it doesn't come off easily). The same applies if it has a waterproof silicon coating (though these are not waterproof).Set your lights to a white color so all the LED colors are active and slide the strips into the connectors with the lights on, so you can look closely at the LEDs and make sure all the colors are lighting up (you may want to turn the brightness down so you can see it better). Sometimes you may have to wiggle the connection side to side or make a better cut on the LED strip for all the colors to light properly. Each little prong should firmly touch one of the metal pads on the LED strips.Make sure the correct end of your LED strip goes in these. If you are just getting a very dim/flickery version of one color then either use the other end of your strip or flip the strip over and reinsert it. That should take care of the problem.Don't snap the clips down until the LED strip is fully working, as they're kind of a pain to get unclipped if you need to adjust the connection because one color isn't working or something. Get the connection working and then snap it. 5Not Just for Splicing LED Strips, A Nice Adapter for Breadboarding and STEM ExperimentsI purchased these thinking they would help me with breadboard prototyping of 12v analog RGB light strips, and they do nicely.First, to insert the LED strip you simply be certain to slide the edges of the strip under the plastic edge tabs and the strip will align nicely with the contact fingers. The LED strips are marked for polarity (12v strips are (+) common) and the splice is marked for polarity on the shell.Second, I was happy I was able to slide Male-Female breadboard wires under the contact switches on the other side. This makes it simple for me to use a short length during prototyping and not worry about soldering new leads or adding some bulky lead with removable pins that causes things to want to flop all over the place while I'm working.Thee photos, all grainy from enlargement. One is the labeling of the LED inserted in the splice, showing the plastic edge tabs over the LED strip. Another shows how tight the snap-over shell is to the first LED - they are touching. The third shows the Male-Female breadboard wires pressed under the contacts. Please note how the plastic edge tab interferes with the alignment of the end connectors, so if you use one of these for all four pins and RGB testing, you will want to carefully cut away those edge tabs so the end connectors can be straight.5Good connectors for 90 degree turns. Worked just as described. These come in separate pieces (connectors and the strips) so you have to piece them together. This is actually a good thing as it takes about 5 seconds to snap them in and allows you to interchange the parts of some are defective.In implementing these, I encountered a few defective clips but the purchase provided me with more than what I needed to complete the project so it worked out well. The only thing I would have like better would be small pieces of double sided tape to help with the mounting. All in all, this was a good product and I would definitely buy again. 5

Connecting the clip to an extension cable, which these connectors aren't really designed for, is more difficult, but once I figured out a method that worked, I was able to make custom length extension cables fairly quickly. I was separating the four ends of cable, then paring away the insulation on one side of the wire, carefully laying the exposed wire onto the connector terminals, then clamping down. Check with a multimeter in continuity mode between adjacent terminals on the opposite side of the connector to find shorts, and between the terminals and the other end of the cable to ensure a connection. Might take a couple of attempts before a getting it right, which is where the patience comes into play.The lights have been installed for a little over a week, and so far so good. I was concerned about connections coming loose, especially when manipulating the extension cables out of view, but the only problem I had turned out to be a fault in the led strip, not the connectors.4After doing a test run the strip worked just fine and the entire procedure took less than 2 minutesI ordered these knowing they are for 10mm strips, but I used them to repair one of my 12mm 6803ic LED strips that was damaged. I cut the strip where marked to remove the damaged section and trimmed the width of each end down with a razor knife. I then slipped the exposed copper ends under each side of the connector pins and clamped it down. After doing a test run the strip worked just fine and the entire procedure took less than 2 minutes. If the lights will be on a stationary object this should work just fine, if they are on an object that is moving or subject to vibration or rattling, it may/may not hold up under pressure or may require a backing material to help hold it in place a little tighter.....will need to test that aspect further.It was so quick and easy (after attempting to solder the connections) that these clips are well worth the rather small investment! Beats throwing out an entire 5 meter strip (it was 2 feet longer than I needed anyway, lol).Will update on how well they hold up!5Quick And Easy the are great for those whom are DIY and working for tape for the first time or whom don't have access to a soldering iron/not confident in your skills.these ones seem like the usual quality, nothing wrong or bad. all the printing on the tape portion was in place.two tips with these:1: they won't work properly anywhere the tape has been solder spliced or the tabs have solder on them. they will be too thick to fit into the plastic clips of the corner. but that is the case with all these clip style connectors usually.2: as a ProTip, the tape potrion of these without the plastic connectors are a wonderful way to have clean corners on pro level installs. as long as you can do what you need in the standard tape second lengths these look better than leads for a corner and are faster to do, no wires to strip, tin, solder. 5Two tabs are flimsyThese looked like they should have been a very simple installation. It wasn't and I was unsure if they were going to work. First off the two tabs that grip the strip are VERY flimsy. On my first attempt to use a clip, they bent over and snapped right off. The other issue is that the glue on the back of the strips I was trying to connect causes a major problem. I couldn't just easily slide the strip in because of the extra thickness and the stickiness. Once I did get them in I had to do a lot of messing with it to get a good connection. Not too confident on how long the connection will last, but so far so good.3Instructions I was having a hard time figuring out how these connect, the biggest problem being that the clips are so small, I had trouble seeing them.First, the hard white plastic pieces opens, they have a cover that s opens and closes, the side that opens looks like a small box, pulls away and flips up. Obviously the best way to get these open is to use your teeth.Once you have both sides open you ll see 4...very, very small Silver prongs, the trick is to slip either the corner piece or the cut end of the LED strip pushed UNDER the Silver prongs. If you look very carefully at the side of the plastic piece with the top open you ll see a very small grove, the cut end needs to be inserted into this grove and pushed in UNDER the Silver prongs.The 12v, Red, Green, Blue must match, your completing the circuit to get the next string to light up. Hope this helps. 5Near seemless connectionsThis is the greatest thing to strip lighting since self slicing bread. I just cut the strip light at the last possible segment before the wired end that comes connected to it. It varies based on brand. Then added it to the next strip clipped the two clips and voila a seamless connection.But beware the added sections need power and reduce the maximum brightness of the entire strip. It's physics and therefore unavoidable. But you'll be the only one that notices. and maybe your wife.5Sometimes you may have to wiggle the connection side to side or make a better cut on the LED strip for all the colors ... Nothing fancy - does the job to connect RGB LED strip lighting together for the needed shapes. Some of the connections took a bit of fiddling to get all the colors to turn on, but all worked in the end.A few pieces of advice:If your lights have adhesive tape attached make sure it is removed for the amount the clips will cover (including any residue or stickyness - you may need to clean it with rubbing alcohol and a q-tip if it doesn't come off easily). The same applies if it has a waterproof silicon coating (though these are not waterproof).Set your lights to a white color so all the LED colors are active and slide the strips into the connectors with the lights on, so you can look closely at the LEDs and make sure all the colors are lighting up (you may want to turn the brightness down so you can see it better). Sometimes you may have to wiggle the connection side to side or make a better cut on the LED strip for all the colors to light properly. Each little prong should firmly touch one of the metal pads on the LED strips.Make sure the correct end of your LED strip goes in these. If you are just getting a very dim/flickery version of one color then either use the other end of your strip or flip the strip over and reinsert it. That should take care of the problem.Don't snap the clips down until the LED strip is fully working, as they're kind of a pain to get unclipped if you need to adjust the connection because one color isn't working or something. Get the connection working and then snap it. 5Not Just for Splicing LED Strips, A Nice Adapter for Breadboarding and STEM ExperimentsI purchased these thinking they would help me with breadboard prototyping of 12v analog RGB light strips, and they do nicely.First, to insert the LED strip you simply be certain to slide the edges of the strip under the plastic edge tabs and the strip will align nicely with the contact fingers. The LED strips are marked for polarity (12v strips are (+) common) and the splice is marked for polarity on the shell.Second, I was happy I was able to slide Male-Female breadboard wires under the contact switches on the other side. This makes it simple for me to use a short length during prototyping and not worry about soldering new leads or adding some bulky lead with removable pins that causes things to want to flop all over the place while I'm working.Thee photos, all grainy from enlargement. One is the labeling of the LED inserted in the splice, showing the plastic edge tabs over the LED strip. Another shows how tight the snap-over shell is to the first LED - they are touching. The third shows the Male-Female breadboard wires pressed under the contacts. Please note how the plastic edge tab interferes with the alignment of the end connectors, so if you use one of these for all four pins and RGB testing, you will want to carefully cut away those edge tabs so the end connectors can be straight.5Good connectors for 90 degree turns. Worked just as described. These come in separate pieces (connectors and the strips) so you have to piece them together. This is actually a good thing as it takes about 5 seconds to snap them in and allows you to interchange the parts of some are defective.In implementing these, I encountered a few defective clips but the purchase provided me with more than what I needed to complete the project so it worked out well. The only thing I would have like better would be small pieces of double sided tape to help with the mounting. All in all, this was a good product and I would definitely buy again. 5
