yea the sections that you cut have terminals for negative and positive. All you have to do is peel back the weatherproof lining with a blade and solder the wire leads on there. You can also buy connectors that clip right on to the ends. My friend at GG Lighting said he has them available. Had I known before hand, I would have just gone with those since my solders suck ass.
