Fiber Optic is a great choice for bringing light into challenging to reach spaces. The optic strands are fairly flexible and they carry the LED source light out to the end of the strand. They are great for lighting up elements that may be hard to fit LEDs into.
How do you use fiber optics?
- You will need an LED for a source light to light up your fibers.
- Choose from any of the LEDs we carry.
- We like the 3mm and 5mm because you can sand the tip of the LED flat and glue the fiber right to the flat bulb surface. You can glue 2 or lots more fiber optic to the same LED.
- Our new Fiber Optic Connector fits right over the 3mm bulb and blocks any "side light", while securing the fiber even better to the bulb.
Our fiber optic is sold by the foot, 0.75 cents per foot. Choose your size and add the number of Feet you need to cart. We measure by the foot but we sell in whole pieces, so for example if you get 3 feet or 6 feet you will get a full sized piece it will not be cut.
This product can be easily cut to the exact sizes you need with regular scissors.
We have a new way to connect fiber optic. Choose 3mm connector for 3mm LEDs. Choose 5mm connector for 5mm LEDs It can hold one piece, or several pieces of fiber optics. The black color is very good at cutting down the side light from the LEDs. This will hold onto your LED very firmly.

Here is a great example of a use for fiber optic sent to us by one of our customers. You can see the numbers are nicely outlined and illuminated without being too intensely bright.
