To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
These brackets are EXACTLY as described! I needed brackets for when my light strip goes around corners because the tape does not tend to stick. The brackets are perfect and hold the strip, which is exactly what they are meant to do. These are silicone, that means that are not rigid, which makes install a tiny bit difficult, but totally doable. Bad reviews are because folks didn't read the description well enough, there is absolutely nothing wrong with this product.
These brackets correctly fit over the Philips Hue light strips to hold them in place. They're also translucent, so if you install one over an LED in the strip, it won't block the light.
I used these to anchor a set of Hue light strips to the underside of my kitchen cabinets. The countertop lighting looks fantastic, and after several months the brackets are doing their job to keep the strips in place anywhere the adhesive has started to separate.
Each piece still has silicone in the holes, so you have to push each screw threw the silicone or it won't even start in the wood. These screws are so tiny, not even really a phillips #1, and they were so difficult to screw into wood that was soft and old. I would never use these again. I had to go buy my own screws to make these work.
These are worthless. It was impossible to use for installing LED strip lights. Flimsy and the screws are so small they will not sink into anything. I aborted using these after one attempt. I cannot return as a couple of weeks outside of return time.
The brackets are made of soft silicone plastic. This makes it easy to tear the brackets when tightening screws. The screws are made of cheap sheet metal. At least 25% of the time, The screw heads broke off while tightening. Do not buy !
