    Hi all


    I just received a whole lot of custom length LED rope light from mysolarled. The big problem I have is that they didn't attach any of the power cords to the rope light lengths. I'm in no way electrical minded, hence I have no idea how to attach the power cords and get these rope lights operational. I've attached a photo below (I hope it works) which shows everything mysolarled sent me. Hope someone can help.


    Cheers
    Chris

    there should have been a 3 prong part in the package that slides into the end of the rope then into the plug

    This looks like the same stuff as the My-T-Brite 240v stuff.

    If you have a look at the connector the spiked pins are offset from center. This type of rope will only work if its the right way around.

    I can see by the picture the end of the rope is also offset.

    Hope this helps.

    I found this guide:


    [font=.HelveticaNeueUI]http://www.mytbritelights.com.au/rope-light-instructions[/font]

    [font=.HelveticaNeueUI]This seems to show what I need to do. But again, I'm an amateur at best. Anyone in the Newcastle area put together rope light as depicted in the guide? I'm gonna need some help..[/font]
