I know I've seen this discussed (here I think)....


Does anyone know if it's possible/okay to cut the ropelight available from HD/Lowes (not the bulk type)? My run for my riser is a bit too long (the HD stuff - 6" or so too long) and I don't have enough of the bulk stuff I bought for my soffit....


I thought I saw someone post that you can, but there was a caveat...


I searched, but couldn't find it.


Thanks in advance....

The rope light has cut marks usually every 12 or 18". If you cut other wise it kills the section.

Well, I decided to go ahead and try cutting off the section...inspected for cut marks and there weren't any....there was a regular pattern that looked like it denoted "sections" of the rope light, so I picked one near the end, and....


It worked. The last few inches are off, but the bulk of the rope light is working fine. I trimmed back any exposed wires, taped over the end, and re-installed it.


Cheers,


Rich
