Is it possible to cut my WideBeam LED Strip to make it shorter? Where should I cut it?WideBeam LED Strips can be cut shorter if you like. To do so, make sure that you cut in places where you have a group of three LEDs with resistors: Please note that if you don't cut in one of these four locations, some LEDs will stop working. For the WideBeam Magnetic Series, this will be trickier as there will be magnets in these locations. We recommend avoiding cutting the magnets themselves and instead cut beside the magnets: Once cut, we recommend applying silicone glue on the cut ends to maintain the strip's waterproof properties.
