    Hello all,

    I'm currently developing several RGB/Pixel clips and I need your help. I've created a site and kindly ask for your participation by completing the product survey. This survey will help determine item specifics including model numbers, quantities, and pricing. The more feedback received the better the outcome. Please feel free to leave comments or suggestions on future products. To help spread the word, please share link or make recommendations for other channels. I thank you for your support.

    hi Bill mate what an idea what a great idea i like the pipe ones i was looking at 20 mm od conduit for my mega tree so i would be looking at 800 just for my tree but bear in mind zip ties are 1c each and also i am looking at mounting straight 20 mm pvc on the uprights on my pergola post so maybe another 400 so if you could get close to 3 or 4 c each in bulk i would definitely look at buying them plus 2016 i will do rooflines and more so i would buy more next year too but if you could get close to the price i would consider buying at least 2000 at a time to suit the 2801 12 mm pixels

    How about some that don't need to go on a pipe but rather the eve of a house. I'd love to print these on a 3d printer. I love 3d work.

    going off the website they look like they have plans for a few different types including facia..
    I have sent an email to get some samples to see if they are usable on our common conduit.

    For the pipe clip sized models, a quick search shows that 1/2" schedule 40/80 has a nominal OD of 0.840" (or 21.336mm). For an Aus. equivalent the IPLEX brand DN15 (PN18) PVC-U pressure pipe also has the 21.3 mm nominal OD. Different brands may have different naming conventions so a quick visit to you local plumbing supply or hardware store should get you sorted. I think both sized clips are going to be too loose a fit for either 16mm or 20mm conduits.

    I'd be interested in ones that clip to the gutter, but will prob use the conduit ones as well.

    +1 for a gutter clip, I'm currently researching the best way to attach pixels to the gutter and haven't found anything simple and quick yet.

    I made a suggestion on the survey that a slight modification could see them used for holding strip to conduit as well. I cable tied my led strip to conduit for my 2d ray tree. I actually made some clips from conduit just the other day. I used conduit, cut it into 10mm pieces and cut a piece out of it. It looked a little messy as it was all done by hand, but worked well. The clips just look like a "C" and slip over the strip and conduit. These look much nicer than my attempt and could serve multiple purposes.

    Thanks for your interest. I've selected a tooling/plastic manufacturer and tooling will be launched soon. I plan on sending an update sometime next week.
