Make sure you solder your wiring and do not Butt Connect them, mainly because Butt connectors can malfunction and create a short and your lights will go out...


When you solder them together this cannot happen and your lights will be reliable for years...

How to make your own Shrimping Lights

DIY Shrimping Lights - How to Make LED Shrimp Lights,

Shrimping Lights DIY (Do It Yourself) Shrimp LED Light Build..


Putting LED Shrimp Light Together


Cut your outer Clear Tubing to size...

Cut your inner PVC Pipe to size...

Drill hole for wiring...

Test fit all components...

Clean off inside PVC Pipe with either acetone or alcohol...

In this photo you can see the hole I drilled for the LED wiring to go through...

Using a Dremel tool...

Now using gloves peal the 3M off of the back of the LED Strip, ONLY a Little at a time... Making sure it does not get contaminated with dust...


Then wrap the LED Light Strip around the inside PVC Pipe...

The LED Light Should look like this...

Install the two end rings to the inside pipe, so the inside pipe has a snug fit too the inside of the end caps, so the lights wrapped around the pipe does not rattle...

OK, ready for testing your light, before you solder the wiring together... and place heat shrink around the wiring...

I use a rubber mallet to tap on the end caps for a flush fit...

OK, this is important:

Notice that there is a slight space on each side of the LED Light Strip....


This is not a mistake, or mismeasurement ... It was done on purpose...


if you make the lights to short they will not have the proper buoyancy....


Note: The lights need to float under the water, so you can adjust the float level.... so the lights need to be buoyant...


Your finished light should look something like the below...


This Shrimp Light Build has 150 GREEN LED Lights

This information is something that you won't see the manufactures posting...

But I will be making it available to all our DIY (Do It Yourself) members...

I found that the green "SMD 5050 LED’s Tri Chip" Strips, provide more lumens than the SMD 3528 led strips.

First you will need to order the parts needed to start your build…
