The installation of the Connector Box is very straight
forward, plug the wires in and you're set. The hard part for
some people may be cutting the wires off of the neon tubes.
Street Glow did provide us with a 10" Chrome Neon Tube to test
this Connector Kit out.
We will be installing the Connector Kit in
conjunction with Street Glows 10" Chrome Neon Accent Kit.
This tube is slightly different than the normal neon tubes you may get
at your favorite PC modification shops. This tube comes attached
with a car cigarette adapter instead of the commonly seen molex
The best part about using the Connector
Kit is that, no soldering or twisting of wire is needed. You do
need to remove the cigarette adapter to expose the wire. Not a
hard process, but would be easier if Street Glow will decide to produce some Neon Tubes without the cigarette
We also tried out the Street Glow
Mini-Neon tubes. They are a slightly smaller than the normal 10
inchers, but they pack a nice glow. A splitting device is
utilized with this neon package since two tubes are included.
The only wire stripping you would need to do is the one on the
device. Just ripped off the cigarette adapter and you're all
The advantages of this smaller mini-neon
is that two tubes are provided which can be of good use in a large
box. You can place one tube near the top and another at the
bottom. Both using the same power source.
Just plug in the two wires into a pair of
connectors and you are set. One of the wires is solid black,
which will plug into the negative (ground) connector. The
striped will plug into the other.
The next step that most people will
follow should be to install the SPST switch into a front bezel for
easy access. We already had a bezel installed, so we just added
another spot for the switch to fit into. Any Dremel or drill
should be able to produce the correct sized hole easily for you.
I placed the neon tube at the bottom of
our test case, a modified Antec KS188 Value Full Tower. Snapped
the front bezel back in and we are ready to see how this Connector Kit
