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.
Clear Plastic Brackets fit the rounded IP65-7 weatherproof LED light strips just right. The one's I received were pliant, not brittle. None broke while installing.
Product came with a double ended Philips screwdriver bit that fit the screws better than those drivers I have. They're small, tiny screws. Fumble fingers needs a bright flashlight to find them when they drop onto floor.
My install was into Hardwood, oak. Easy & quick to install if you have room to work and use power drill. In some of the areas I used these was in tight spaces. Not enough room to use a drill. I ended up using a dremel to predrill using a 1.9mm drill bit to use a short handled screwdriver. The OD of the threads of screws is 3mm (1/8"). Other areas, I used a small hammer to tap the screw into the wood, then screwdriver.
As a previous reviewer stated, it's a frustrating fumble due to the size of the screws, so drill pilot holes & you'll be glad you did. I agree. Using other different techniques to get those tiny screws into the wood was the doll house wood working tricks I've already known.
Overall, good product, annoying to install but worthwhile in the end. It didn't take that long to do. Yes, I'd recommend these annoying little brackets. They work good.
What else is there to say. They are plastic and screws. They didn't quite work for the LED strips I got but that is because I didn't get the water proof ones. They still worked to hold the strips to the wall.
When my husband asked for these I thought it was bit much. But seeing them fall and look horrible without them he was right. My daughters room is lit up along the ceiling. They work and are worth the few extra minutes.
