Extension Cables

Product Description

This extension cable, specifically designed for the Philips Hue Lightstrip system, enables you to create a break in your LED lightstrips instead of having only one continuous line. The possibilities are endless! You can run lights under cabinets with a break over the sink, create sharply defined lighting on a series of shelves, or even connect lightstrips across an entire room. Our cables are flexible and flat, which makes them inconspicuous - perfect for designing your ideal lighting setup!

This product is great for:

  • Connecting to the end of a lightstrip to add a break in the lightstrip
  • Running lightstrips around corners
  • Connecting a lightstrip to a controller that is located in a different location (with the use of our Controller to 6-Pin Adapter)

Specifications

  •  If you want to connect this product directly to the Philips Lightstrip Plus Controller, you MUST use the Litcessory Controller to 6-Pin Adapter to do so.
  • Male ends are removable, converting them to female.
  • Supports lightstrip runs up to 33 feet/10 meters (lightstrips and extension cables combined).
  • Cable is UL Listed.
  • Made for Indoor Dry Locations Only.
  • All Litcessory products come with a two-year warranty.

To connect two cut lightstrips together with a Litcessory Extension Cable, you will need to use one of our 6-pin to cut-end products: a 6-Pin to Cut-End Extension Connector, a 6-Pin to Cut-End Connector, or a 6-Pin to Cut-End Connector (Solder-On). This will allow you to convert the cut end of the lightstrip into a 6-pin connector.

  1. Connect the cut-end connector side of the cable to the cut lightstrip.
  2. Plug the extension cable into the 6-pin side of the 6-Pin to Cut-End Connector.
  3. Connect a second 6-Pin to Cut-End Connector to the other cut lightstrip

If your lights are not the right colors after connecting a cut-end connector, this means that the cut-end connector is not making a solid connection with the solder points on the lightstrips. Try the following:

  1. Unplug the power source
  2. Ensure the backside of the solder points (the side opposite of the LED lights) are making contact with the cut-end connector’s metal prongs, and that the cut-end of the lightstrip is fully inserted.
  3. Close the lid of the cut-end connector and clamp down with a pair of pliers. Use plenty of pressure. You should hear a slight “snap”.
  4. To ensure your cut-end connector stays tight, you can wrap the cut-end connector tightly with electrical tape.

If you are still having issues after trying the above steps, please contact our awesome support team. We are always happy to help!
