How It’s Made
A lot of work goes into making sure that when you receive your lighting system that it is the quality and standards you have come to expect of RubRailLights.com. Here you will find some of the specifications of our lighting systems. Our systems go through rigorous testing and perfecting to achieve the ultimate level of quality. When you receive one of these patented systems you will see the level of workmanship throughout every aspect of the product.
The Rub Rail Light Difference
We frequently hear stories about our competitor’s LED strips breaking loose, detaching and flapping in the breeze while going down the lake. Our system is nearly invisible, with a clean appearance hidden in the rub rail insert. No more hacking, cutting, routing, and gouging to install like our competitor’s products. Simply remove the old rub rail insert and install a new insert with integrated lights and wiring. We very often hear comments like “ I was tired of replacing lights because they would just come loose or fail and decided to buy your kit even though it cost more, and wow, it looks so much better!”
