Here's one fairly short how-to video I found on U-tube on these led tape lights

Thank you for the idea.

We have a small dog who's blind.We've noticed though that the she can see a little bit, enough for her to be comfortable with her footing and not run into walls when we used an LED flashlight once.

She gets lost in the hall way.Our GR helps her to find the doggy door.Makes sure she gets back in ok.We do to.

Can these be used running along the floorboards.With one small strip for the doors?

I wouldn't run these because they're rather fragile. You wouldn't want to bump them with your feet or vacuum cleaner, or whatever....
Instead, a LED rope light might be a better choice, as they're encased in clear plastic tubing? And you'll probably need two separate/independent ropes because of the door.

I found these at Menard's today, 9.8 foot strips. At least when I came across them I knew what they were. I think we will be getting these for under the cabinet. Thanks RoadFix!

After removing all the old flourescent fixtures it occured to me that I can simply hard wire the transformer at any one of the switched junctions......

I also installed a cool white light strip inside and under our little bar cabinet over the weekend. The cool white has a soft bluish hue to it and lights the bar counter and inside in glass cabinet nicely.
