Replacing undercabinet strip lights

Post by actoms » Sun Sep 11, 2022 11:31 am

I am looking to replace two current fluorescent undercabinet lighting units with LED equivalents.
The current lights are daisy chained together and I attach a pic of the plug at each cable end of the linked unit.
The new LEDs have a Figure 8 connection but I have been unable to establish the identity of the existing plugs in order to purchase suitable converters.
Are they available at all?

In the time you will take to find such "converters" (If they indeed exist) you could have either changed the existing plugs or installed new cables as required and saved time / money in the process.

If the original connector is ISO then you may find [url=https://www.tlc-direct.co.uk/Products/GKLC20.html?source=adwords&ad_position=&ad_id=&placement=&kw=&network=x&matchtype=&ad_type=pla&product_id=GKLC20&product_partition_id=&campaign=shopping_accessories&version=finalurl_v3&gclid=CjwKCAjwyaWZBhBGEiwACslQo36xHXvb_f8VopeVOJh6Qt4jpeF5BPZDc8KuCn9BHtquMXuDCEaLGBoC35QQAvD_BwE] an adaptor [/url] but in the main we use a junction box, and cut off the original connector.
