Mounting LEDs


Can I mount LEDs directly into wood or will they cause a fire

Matt, Welcome to the forum
If your Led is not very hot to the touch then you are probably OK.
What are you trying to do?

Led


I've wired up some LEDs into a staircase for my daughters room to use as a night light. I was wondering if I could drill a small hole the size of the LED and just mount them directly into the wood or if I needed to create a perspex mount or something similar.

These are the LEDs I'm using.

I've wired up 35 of them in a Parallel circuit using a 240v to 12v converter

Bezel


Sorry, I think I have just answered my own question. Looks like I need to mount them in 5mm Bezels.
