Light shows have become a staple at music festivals and events, adding an extra layer of excitement to the atmosphere. LED gloves have become a popular accessory for those looking to enhance their light show game, and what better way to stand out than with a custom LED glove set? Building your own custom glove set allows you to choose your own chips, LED colors, and casings to create a unique and personalized light show that truly reflects your personality. In this blog post, we'll take you through the steps to build your own custom bulb glove set, so you can impress your friends and fellow festival-goers with your one-of-a-kind light show.



Step 1: Prepare your LED bulbs

Cut the LED bulb right before the raised part of the prong with your scissors or nail clippers, as shown in the photo below.

Step 2: Place batteries inside your chips

Stack the coin cell batteries so one battery's positive side is touching the other's negative side.
Place your stacked batteries inside the chips, with a battery's positive side touching the battery bar and the negative side of the other battery touching the bulb chip.

Step 3: Insert the LEDs

Insert the LED prongs into your chip in the location shown in the photo below.
Press the button to see if the LED turns on.
If the LED does not illuminate, remove the LED and flip it around, so the prongs are in the opposite connectors. Your LED should turn on at this point. If not, make sure your batteries are new and placed in your chip properly.
