I 5 male connector and 5 female connectors so I could mount and wire the lights pretty much any way I choose to, paid about $10 for the connectors from Amazon and got here on day 3. Sucks that you have to make repairs to something new but amazon may be the answer

Talking

Installed mine last night. I used a 9 volt charge ftom a shifty sweeper that the DG did not want any more. On the way to the trash, I thought that the charger might work for the lights. So i recycled the charger from the trash man. I installed the light inder the awning and plugged them in. The charger is onle 9 volt but I looked at the lights when it was dark I'm very please with the results. Iwill up load pic soon i hope. First time for up load. I need yo figer out how.

A question on cutting the strip; I purchased the 5050 lights from Ebay and I need to cut the length a little, where are the cut points? I see what looks like "fuse links" every 6" or so and was thinking that's where I should cut it but there is nothing in the paper that came with them, anyone already cut theirs?

Those little copper links are the cut points.
If you split length in the middle of the the strips all the LEDs in the section will still light.

That's the cut point. Just make sure they are not powered on when you make the cut. Disconnect them from the power supply before the cut.

Excellent advice. I know some things should "go without saying" but most times still need to be said...

You da man! Thanks for being so quick. I'm keeping everything covered so to speak and need to cut about 6" or so off the strand. Only thing is with mine, my pass-thru door will need to be open for the remote to work, I kept everything enclosed as much as possible; thanks again
