Does a good job of waterproofing but mind the sag!

As a way to make non-waterproof strips work in the wet this is fine.

However, it is not at all stiff. I mounted this under a deck stair hand railing and found that using the 12" spacing for the mounting clips recommended by superbrightleds resulted in noticeable sag after only a week. I ended up manually nailing up some 9/16" staples in the middle of each 12" span, resulting in only a 6" space between supports. This appears to be working much better. The photo shows this sag.

The tubing is almost clear. If you are looking for something that will hide the individual LEDs, this not the right product for you.

The product arrived with a tear in the middle, near where it had been zip-tied together. SuperbrightLEDs needs to work on their QC in their shipping department. Fortunately, the tear coincidentally occurred at the exact point where I needed to cut for the two pieces I needed, so I was OK.

I am still impressed with how LEDs do as a light source. They are nice.

Response from Super Bright LEDs:

We appreciate your feedback. We are sorry to hear that this did not work properly. We suggest that you may want to also use the double sided tape for the application along with the clips. If you have any other questions, feel free to contact us.
