Product Features

The absolute key to a well designed and beautiful RGB Pixel MegaTree is ensuring that your pixels are straight and evenly spaced - even just a few mis-aligned or un-evenly spaced pixels can ruin the look of a pixel MegaTree. While strip / ribbon pixels have this as part of their inherent design, nodes have always had a problem getting perfect spacing and alignment. Previous solutions involved complicated and extremely slow taping or zip tying and often then didn't produce perfect results. All these problems with mounting pixel nodes on your MegaTree are now solved and at a price below any other method on the market today with PixNode Strips™.
  • Outdoor Rated - Manufactured from durable, outdoor rated and UV resistant plastic (black material only) on our in-house, computer controlled machines.
  • Durable & Strong - Our strips are 15% thicker and stronger than all other pixel node strip on the market today - hands down the strongest strip on the market today.
  • Black or Clear - We offer black which is great for non-reflective lighting and helps to hide light scatter from the rear of pixels. Clear is a good choice where daytime aesthetics and reduced light blockage from rear facing elements in a display are important.
    • NOTE: All clear strip has been sold out for 2018
  • Part of the Integrated QuickTree System - The QuickTree system allows you to use PixNode Strips to build 4 to 60 ft tall strip trees and more - all perfectly designed to work together.
  • No Screws, Bolts, Washers or Tools Required - HolidayCoro invented the original, no-hardware strip version using two simple 4" zip ties - no need to worry about additional bolts to splice together longer lengths.
  • Trimmable to 1" Sections - Each strip can be cut to any length using standard scissors, in increments as small as 1". To create longer lengths, use two, 4" zip ties to create super strong splices (see video on this page for complete details) - without the need to manually punch holes or modify the strip in any way.
  • Designed for High Tension Forces - Designed for 55 pounds of tension and 70 pounds on splice joints using just two nylon zip ties
  • Fast Installation - Installation takes only about 2-4 seconds per node making it the absolutely fastest method on the market today
  • Recommended Nodes and Spacing:
    • Center to Center Pixel Spacing

  • No electrical tape - As many have learned, using the "banding and taping" method, results in electrical tape that comes loose in the cold and is extremely time consuming to install and makes repairs a nightmare.
  • Easy "On-Tree" Repairs - On-tree repairs of bad nodes can often be performed without requiring any major disassembly of surrounding nodes.
  • Extensive Termination Options - Strip ends can be attached to a variety of termination points at the top and bottom of your tree. Materials that can be used for termination points include:
    • PVC pipe
    • Eye hooks (round, hook, large or small)
    • Screws
    • Bolts
    • Nails
    • Zip ties
    • See our product video for examples
    • We also offer for selected installations, the PixNode Strain Relief clip.
  • Easy Off-Season Storage - Just take down your PixNode Strip with the nodes installed, coil up and store away in bins or hang from your garage or basement joists. The material is safe to store in temperatures up to 375f.
  • We recommend purchasing 5% more than actual necessary length to allow for splicing and end connections/terminations

Just getting started November 9, 2018
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from BELTON, TX United States  
I found the awesomeness that is WS2811 nodes on ebay last year and made a pixel arch using PVC pipe and landscape edging. Im going to do the same arch this year and add other pixel elements which is where this strip comes into play. I cant wait to get my pixels so i can start work on my display. these strips are a higher quality than i expected. holiday coro is going to be my best friend for many Christmases to come.
