Its this easy! Also remember that if solid state components/semi-conductors initially work they will last a very, very long time -- spend wisely since the miles of these LED strips are produced on the very same equipment regardless of end user price. $.02

Just to clarify a comment above, though, tombstones are usually very easy to replace, and cost just a few dollars at the hardware store. Just because they're wrecked doesn't necessarily mean the fixture is complete garbage. As for ballasts, I've changed more than I care to count, but it's my job. In any case, if you're going to LED, anyway, compare the price of a couple of T8 (or T12) replacement bulbs with the price of a new fixture.


The tombstones in my fixtures were integral and non-removable. The fixtures have to go.
