Could I get the UV LED Strips segmented for a Pool Table?

I'm interested in buying your True UV LED Strips for a pool table and was wondering if there was a way I could get the strips segmented out for each side of the table so the balls going into the pocket wouldn't damage the strips.

It might be helpful to know that the realUV™ LED Strip Lights are designed with designated cut points every 0.984 inches (25 mm) for installations requiring various segment lengths. 

These cut-points include solder pads, which can be connected to power (or other segments) using soldering or LED Strip Connectors

Regarding protection against damage, we would likely recommend installing the lights within products such as our Aluminum Channel for LED Flex Strip. While these channels are only available in 3.3 ft (1 meter) lengths, we have heard that other customers have divided these channels using handsaws for precise measurements. 

Is there a way that you could cut them to my measurements and install connectors between them? would make things a lot more convenient for me seeing as I have no soldering gun or experience soldering.

As we are unable to ship custom-cut orders, we would likely recommend using the solderless LED Strip to Strip and Gapless Connecters as an alternative option. 

These products were designed to easily clasp upon the LED Strip Light segment's contact points for connection to power sources, and would not require any soldering. 

Can I use your solderless connectors to connect as many UV LED Strips as I want? That being said, other than a 12V power supply (planning on using the strip connectors around all 6 pockets and the strip-to-strip to connect the 3.2-meter strips), should this theoretically do the trick and illuminate my UV reactive pool balls?

It might be helpful to know that the LED Strip Lights have a hardware-defined maximum combined length of 16.4 ft. When continuous runs exceed that length, voltage drop and diminished output will be experienced. To overcome this, we usually recommend one dedicated power supply per full reel of LED Strip Lights. 

As a further note, each LED Connector will cause a minute drop in the voltage being provided to each subsequently connected LED Strip Light length. As such, you may find that using an excess of connectors within a 16.4 length will result in slightly reduced output. 

Beyond the two recommended power supplies and the single-color connectors, it appears that the items in your cart should theoretically illuminate the pool table playfield. In the hopes that it is useful, we have attached two LayoutMap links below. The first is for a segmented realUV installation, and the latter is for an installation where two reels and power supplies are connected to a single wall dimmer.
