Good day to all, in this short article I will tell you how to make the illumination of bicycle wheels with your own hands.
For this we need:
1.Waterproof LED strip.
2. Holders for 9v batteries.
3. Two 9v batteries.
4. A pair of switch buttons.
5. Silicone sealant or hot melt adhesive.
First of all, we cut the LED strip into the segments that we paste between the needles, I got 36 segments for each wheel.
Next, glue the segments of the LED strip between the spokes on each wheel and proceed to the process of soldering it.
After the LED strip has been soldered, we are going to connect the power - we solder a couple of wires at the end of the LED strip and output them through the power button to the battery holder, we fix the holder to the wheel shaft with a steel clip, now we only have to fix the wires with the switch along the knitting needle and seal soldered contacts on the LED strip using hot melt adhesive or silicone sealant.
We check the performance and set off to ride around the night city ...
If you have any questions, watch the video of the manufacturing process:
