Quasar led tube mounting

Recommended Posts


If you're going to velcro the clips to something, I'd just velcro the tubes. But I wouldn't rig them anywhere they were likely to fall onto anyone or anything. You could probably use big cable rip ties with a reasonable degree of security.

I wouldn't use sticky velcro directly on the back of a Quasar tube - the rear half of the tube is a heatsink, and it would get hot enough to make the adhesive melt and unstick.

Off the top of my head, I think #10 screws fit the holes in the Q-blocks. 

What are you trying to attach your tubes to?

I'd say longer is better if the wood is deep enough.  Washers aren't strictly necessary but I'd probably use them if I was screwing the blocks down with power tools.

Screws can work, but i believe the blocks were designed for bolts and of using thin wood the bolts will be more secure.

The bolts go in through the front, then you use a washer and nut on the back. The hex opening in the front prevents it from turning, just use the right size bolt.
