Circuit Diagram

The circuit diagram shows 1 red from the led strips, mine has 2 reds and 2 black wires. How should they be connected?
Thank You,

Hello!
The circuit diagram shows all blacks/reds going together, but I have an extra set of each on the LED strips. I know they're power but how to wire them?
Thanks <3

The extra set of red/black wires is not needed for that application. (They are used when you have a large pixel installation with multiple power feeds.)
You can trim them back. Just be careful that you don't allow the exposed wire ends to short against anything . You can cover them with tape for added protection.

Hi : )

Thank You SO Much for getting back to me!! I don' t think the clipped leads will short anywhere/anything with the setup. I will be back later with programming Q's.

Robots and Resistors,

Robin.
