Where to source clip together LED tube lights

Postby joesher9 » Sat Mar 13, 2021 9:54 am

A few years ago I had new LED tubes installed in my shed. These were clipped onto the ceiling with plastic clips and could interconnect, with the end one being plugged into the mains.
This was incredibly simple to fit and has served its purpose well. I want some more like this but cannot find them anywhere. Does anyone know if this (or a similar system) still can be obtained.

I had never heard of them, so I googled, the last mention of them that I found is 2017. Even the manufacturers youtube page that you link to, has not had a video posted for 4 years, as well as the only question of where can they be purchased from has been ignored. So I would assume they are obsolete.

Why not use LED tape instead?

Thanks. I considered tape but it would not supply enough light. However some more searching turned up Barrina LED T5 which also link directly on Amazon so I may try these.

The way this forum works joesher9's reply appeared AFTER chriscba posted with his find.

Just as a matter of interest, LED "tubes" (They go under several names / brands) are made from..............LED tape, some have two parallel rows of tape to give more light, they also incorporate a "Power supply" (Capacitive dropper) to power the LED's all in a decorative package.

What are you saying / trying to say, as from here, that makes no sense what so ever.
