    Got my kit from Litetechauto, this is the best kit I've came across. My buddy has a $300 kit, this is brighter, and more configuration options. I got the A/C adaptor, a back up battery pack, in line manual on/off switch, a rocker switch that mounts on the door and automatically turns on and off. 2-48" led strips , and 3-20" strips. All for $67 delivers to the door. This is worth the money!

    Wal-Mart has led rope lights. Save your money for ammo.

    I bought a 8 ft LED rope at Home Depot for like $8 on sale and I leave it on 24/7 it does produce a little heat which helps dehumidify the inside along with my dehumidifier rod in the bottom . It more than provides plenty of light. It starts about half way up the safe on the right side just inside the door goes up to the bottom of the barrel holders all the way around the safe and back down the opposite side just inside the door . I move my top shelves forwards about 1" and this lets the light shine through to the back to see whats on the shelves .
    I will see if I can find a pic

    I can wait to put mine in. The Cannon S-33 I bought a month ago, is still not in my garage! They lied and said it would be bolted down in my garage in two weeks from purchase . Here we are a month later and the guy tells me it goes into production today. Really! So now I have to wait another week or two. I'm going to light up my crapper for now I guess! Makes for good reading of my favorite magazine Recoil!

    Hope everthing works out for ya! You'll love the LED's. They will light up very nicely. I just need to find out how to wire the rocker switch to it so it will come on autoatically. I have to hit the on/off switch for now.

    I noticed he didn't send any instruction. Doesn't it have a harness on each side? It should be the first piece after the A/C adaptor or battery pack. Then your first strip should be the vertical 48" after that. I saw it at the show and , he mounted it to the bottom hinge side of the interior door panel.

    No it shouldn't. I just checked his sight, and nothing about the rocker switch. I'll do some playing around with it when I get home. Hope I don't up at RadioShack trying to figure this out.

    The only thing that bad about the deal is that it doesnt come with any instructions and the only contact to the vendor is via email. I sent them an email and so far have not received any response. Were you able to look at your setup? Maybe Im missing something...

    My "kit" cost me roughly $13 from Lowe's. I bought a 3-pack of LED pucks approx 3x3".....bought some adhesive backed velcro strips....and attached the pucks to the felt liner in 3 places on the safe ceiling/shelves ;)

    When I open the safe it takes me 3 seconds to push each light on

    Cheap, but works great ;)
