    Default Mounting Square Nodes

    There are several posts about mounting bullet style nodes in J-channel to mount along the eves, but I have been unable to find any that deal with mounting square nodes. I purchased square nodes a couple years ago because they better suited my old layout. I am now in a new house, and in the process of redoing things. Purchasing all new lights at this juncture is not practical, both from a time and money standpoint. All of my square nodes have little "wings" that look to be for mounting screws. These wings prevent the square node from fitting into the J-channel. I previously had all my pixels mounted in Boscoyo pixel strips. I tried to combine the J-channel and pixel strips, but can't come up with a good solution. Cutting all the little "wings" off just doesn't sound fun.

    Has anyone else used square nodes, and come up with a good mounting solution either with J-channel, the pixel strips, some combination of both, or something else all together?

    I use zip ties to pvc for house and yard pieces and zip ties to aircraft cable for mega tree. All square nodes.

    Same here, for the house I zip tied the nodes to PVC pipe and hang the pipes from my gutters using j-hooks. For the house verticals, I am still using PVC pipes but have clips for the pipes that connect to the corners of my vinyl siding:
