Important things to note:

Laying cables in between and underneath bricks

Cables can fit in between and underneath LEGO® bricks, plates, and tiles providing they are laid correctly between the LEGO® studs. Do NOT forcefully join LEGO® together around cables; instead ensure they are laying comfortably in between each stud.

CAUTION: Forcing LEGO® to connect over a cable can result in damaging the cable and light.

Connecting cable connectors to Expansion Boards

Take extra care when inserting connectors to ports of Expansion Boards. Connectors can be inserted only one way. With the expansion board facing up, look for the soldered “=” symbol on the left side of the port. The connector side with the wires exposed should be facing toward the soldered “=” symbol as you insert into the port. If a plug won’t fit easily into a port connector, do not force it.

Incorrectly inserting the connector can can result in bent pins inside the port or possible overheating of the expansion board when connected.

 

Connecting cable connectors to Strip Lights

Take extra care when inserting connectors to ports on the Strip Lights. Connectors can be inserted only one way. With the Strip Light facing up, ensure the side of the connector with the wires exposed is facing down. If a plug won’t fit easily into a port connector, don’t force it. Doing so will damage the plug and the connector.

Connecting Micro Cable connectors to Micro Expansion Board Ports

Take extra care when inserting the micro connectors to micro ports of Micro Expansion Boards. Connecting Micro Bit Lights to Micro Expansion Boards is similar to connecting lights and cables to Strip Lights. With the expansion board facing up, ensure the side of the connector with the wires exposed is facing down. If a plug won’t fit easily into a port connector, do not force it. Use your fingernail to push the plastic part of the connector to the micro port.

 

Installing Bit Lights under LEGO® bricks and plates.

When installing Bit Lights under LEGO® pieces, ensure they are placed the correct way up (Yellow LED component exposed). You can either place them directly on top of LEGO® studs or in between.

 


OK, Let’s Begin!

 

1.) We will begin with lighting the left section first. Seperate the two sections, then disconnect the front of the ship via the ball joints.

 

Disconnect the following black bricks from underneath the ship, then disconnect the following 2×4 plate from the top.

 

 

2.) Take a Green Strip Light and connect a 30cm Connecting Cable to the left port, then connect a 15cm Connecting Cable to the right port. Thread both cables up underneath the first floor, then pull both cables out from the top.

 

Peel off the adhesive backing from the green strip light and stick it underneath the first floor in the following position.

 

Pull both cables all the way out from above, then disconnect the following black 1×1 tile on the side and lay the cables down across to the side of the ship in between studs as shown below. Reconnect both the tile and the 2×4 plate we removed earlier over the top. Ensure there are no dangling cables showing where the strip light is.

 

 

3.) Take out a 6-Port Expansion Board and connect the end of the 15cm Connecting Cable to one of the far ports, then connect a USB power Cable to the next port on the board. Connect the other end of the USB cable to your USB Power Bank or wall adaptor (sold separately) to test the Green Strip Light is working OK.

 

Note: If you experience any issues with the lights not working and suspect an issue with a component, please try a different port on the expansion board to verify where the fault lies (with the light or expansion board). To correct any issues with expansion board ports, please view the section addressing expansion board issues on our online troubleshooting guide.

 

Power Bank Note – If your are using the Light My Bricks USB Power Bank, it is normal for the strip light to turn off automatically after a few minutes. This is due to very low power being consumed from the power bank. You won’t have this issue later on when you connect up more lights.

 

 

4.) Disconnect the lamp from the front side of this section, then disassemble it as per below.

 

Take a White 30cm Bit Light and thread the connector side of the cable through the base (larger hole) of the trans yellow round brick. Thread the cable through, then slightly bend the LED onto a 90 degree angle so that it will eventually point directly down when the lamp is reconnected. Pull the cable all the way from the top of the trans brick so that the LED sits comfortably inside, then thread the connector end of the cable through the base of the lamp enclosure. Pull the cable out from the outside, then reconnect the trans yellow brick inside.

 

 

5.) Reconnect the lamp to the lamp post, then pull the cable over the top post and then bring the cable back down and thread the cable between the two black clips.

Reconnect the lamp to the deck, then thread the cable underneath. Pull the cable all the way out from behind, then thread it through the back of the deck (in between the rock and the tree trunk)

 

Disconnect the following pieces and lay the cable down in between studs before reconnecting these pieces over the top.

 

Take the front section of the ship and reconnect the black bricks underneath. Connect the ship back to the set via the ball joints, then turn the set around and connect the Bit Light cable from the lamp to the 6-port expansion board. Turn the power ON to test the lamp LED is working OK.

 

 

6.) Take a 15cm Connecting Cable and connect one end of the cable to the 6-Port Expansion Board. Thread the other end of the cable through to the left (behind the post that is attached to the rigging). Bring the cable underneath the ships’s kitchen, then connect the cable to a Blue Strip Light.

 

Take a 30cm Connecting Cable and connect it to the Blue Strip Light’s left port. Peel off the adhesive backing and mount the strip light underneath the ship in the following position.

 

Thread the other end of the 30cm Cable through to the outside of the ship, then pull the cable down and thread it in between the deck post and deck base. Pull the cable all the way out as shown below.

 

 

7.) Disconnect the lamp post section from the front, then disconnect the following two larger brown plates.

 

Take the 30cm Connecting cable from the side and thread it underneath the deck, then lay it around the following studs of the deck post. Reconnect one of the larger brown plates over the top as shown below.

 

 

8.) Disassemble the lamp section as per below, then repeat the same method used for the previous lamp to install another White 30cm Bit Light to it.

 

 

9.) Locate the 30cm Connecting Cable from underneath the deck and connect it to a Blue Strip Light. Connect the Bit Light cable from the lamp post to the other port on the blue strip light.

 

Reconnect the lamp post to the front of the large brown plate that sits at the front of the deck, then turn it over so we can access underneath of it. Using the adhesive backing, stick the Blue Strip Light underneath this plate in the below position.

 

Twist/Fold the excess cable from the Bit Light and Connecting Cable into neat bunches, then turn the plate over and tuck the cables neatly underneath the plate behind. Reconnect the large brown plate, then disconnect the brown tile at the front and further tuck in any excess cable before reconnecting the tile.

 

Turn ON the power to test all the lights installed so far are working OK.

 

Note: If you experience any issues with the lights not working and suspect an issue with a component, please try a different port on the expansion board to verify where the fault lies (with the light or expansion board). To correct any issues with expansion board ports, please view the section addressing expansion board issues on our online troubleshooting guide.

 

 

10.) From the back of this section, remove the top floor above the captain’s HQ, then locate the spare end of the 30cm Connecting Cable from the Green Strip Light below and bring it up above the top floor. Slip the cable in between the yellow plates on the right and connect it to an 8-Port Expansion Board.

 

Disconnect the two lamps, then repeat the same method used for the previous lamps to install this time, a White 15cm Bit Light to each lamp (Total 2x White 15cm Bit Lights)

 

 

11.) Reconnect one of the lamps to the side of the ship, then follow the below images to disconnect the surrounding pieces.

 

Bring the lamp cable through to the inside of the captain’s HQ and lay it down in between studs before reconnecting all the pieces we removed earlier.

 

 

12.) Take the other lamp post and loop the cable around the top of the lamp post. Disconnect the railing section above the door, then reconnect the lamp post to it.

 

Thread the cable through the railing and pull it all the way out from the other side before reconnecting this section back to the top of the ship.

 

Disconnect the following brown tile and lay down the cable from the lamp above in between studs, before reconnecting the tile over the top. Connect the two lamp cables to the 8-Port Expansion Board. Turn ON the power to test the lamp lights are working OK.

 

Note: If you experience any issues with the lights not working and suspect an issue with a component, please try a different port on the expansion board to verify where the fault lies (with the light or expansion board). To correct any issues with expansion board ports, please view the section addressing expansion board issues on our online troubleshooting guide.

 

 

13.) From the front of the set, disconnect the front panel on the top floor as well as the two lamp sections.

 

Disassemble one of the lamps, then take a White 30cm Bit Light and thread the connector side of the cable through the base of the trans yellow brick (larger hole). Place the LED all the way inside the brick (without bending it on a 90 degree angle like we did earlier).

 

With the LED facing the inside wall of the trans yellow brick, carefully reconnect the black bar through the larger hole of the brick. You will notice the bar will be on a slight angle because of the LED pushing against it. This is normal.

Do not forcefully push the black bar all the way through, we just need the bar to be pushed in enough to stay secure.

Pushing the bar the whole way through may break the cable.

 

Reconnect the black dish, then thread the cable through the inside of the lamp enclosure before reconnecting everything back together. Align the lamp enclosure so that the LED is facing directly forward.

 

Repeat this step to install another White 30cm Bit Light to the other lamp.

 

 

14.) Reconnect one of the lamps to the left side, then slip the cable inside the corner behind as well as down on the side of the wall as shown below. Connect the cable to the 8-Port Expansion Board

 

Repeat this step for the other lamp to the right side.

 

Turn ON the power to test the lamp lights are working OK.

 

Note: If you experience any issues with the lights not working and suspect an issue with a component, please try a different port on the expansion board to verify where the fault lies (with the light or expansion board). To correct any issues with expansion board ports, please view the section addressing expansion board issues on our online troubleshooting guide.

 

 

15.) Take out the following provided pieces included in this kit (to assemble a spot light) as well a White 15cm Bit Light

  • 1x Black Round Plate 1×1 with Open Stud
  • 1x Black Tile 1×1 with Clip Rounded Edges
  • 1x Black 1×1 Modified Plate Rounded with Handle 

 

Thread the connector end of the Bit Light through the bottom of the round plate with open stud (larger hole). Slightly bend the LED so that it sits flat against the inside of the plate, then connect the plate to the bottom of the rounded plate with handle.

 

Thread the cable through the space of the handle, pulling it all the way out from the other side, then connect the handle to the tile with clip.

 

 

16.) Take the front panel we removed earlier and flip it over. Take a Warm White Strip Light and connect the Bit Light from previous step to the left port, and connect a new 30cm Connecting Cable to the right port. Using it’s adhesive backing, stick the Strip Light underneath the front panel as per below.

 

Reconnect the panel to the front of the set, ensuring the 30cm connecting cable is placed through the left corner in between the two yellow walls. Hide the cable down in between sections on the floor, then connect it to the 8-port Expansion Board.

 

 

17.) Connect the spotlight section to the top of the tree branch piece to the following stud. Position the spot light so that the LED is shining up onto the Pirate flag.

 

Neaten up the cable by twisting it into a neat bunch, then tucking it in underneath the panel as shown below:

 

Turn ON the power to test the strip light and spot light is working OK.

 

 

18.) Disconnect the captains desk with candles from inside of the headquarters. Disconnect the candles and remove the flame piece from each candle.

 

Take a White 15cm Micro Bit Light and carefully bend/fold the LED side of the cable about 5mm down. With the LED facing in, insert the folded part into the Candle piece, then secure it in place by reconnecting the flame piece. Fold the cable down the side of the candle.

 

Repeat this step to install another 3x White 15cm Micro Bit Lights to the remaining 3 candles, then reconnect all four candles to the desk.

 

 

19.) Turn the desk around, then group the four cables and twist them around each other a few times. Continue to twist/braid the cables around each other all the way to the ends, then connect them to the smaller ports on a Micro 2-4 Port Expansion Board

 

Connect a 5cm Connecting Cable to the larger port on the expansion board, then connect the other end of the cable to one of the OUT ports on a Flicker Effects Board. Connect a new 5cm Connecting Cable to the IN port on the Flicker effects board.

 

 

20.) Reconnect the desk inside the captain’s HQ, then lay the cables down the left side of the room. Connect the other end of the 5cm Connecting cable to the 8-port Expansion Board near the door.

 

Ensure the cables down the right side are well hidden into the corners, then fold down the captain’s bed to help further conceal the cables.

 

Turn ON the power to test the candle lights are working and flickering OK.

 

Note: If you experience any issues with the lights not working and suspect an issue with a component, please try a different port on the expansion board to verify where the fault lies (with the light, expansion board or effects board).

Important things to note:

Laying cables in between and underneath bricks

Cables can fit in between and underneath LEGO® bricks, plates, and tiles providing they are laid correctly between the LEGO® studs. Do NOT forcefully join LEGO® together around cables; instead ensure they are laying comfortably in between each stud.

CAUTION: Forcing LEGO® to connect over a cable can result in damaging the cable and light.

Connecting cable connectors to Expansion Boards

Take extra care when inserting connectors to ports of Expansion Boards. Connectors can be inserted only one way. With the expansion board facing up, look for the soldered “=” symbol on the left side of the port. The connector side with the wires exposed should be facing toward the soldered “=” symbol as you insert into the port. If a plug won’t fit easily into a port connector, do not force it.

Incorrectly inserting the connector can can result in bent pins inside the port or possible overheating of the expansion board when connected.

 

Connecting cable connectors to Strip Lights

Take extra care when inserting connectors to ports on the Strip Lights. Connectors can be inserted only one way. With the Strip Light facing up, ensure the side of the connector with the wires exposed is facing down. If a plug won’t fit easily into a port connector, don’t force it. Doing so will damage the plug and the connector.

Connecting Micro Cable connectors to Micro Expansion Board Ports

Take extra care when inserting the micro connectors to micro ports of Micro Expansion Boards. Connecting Micro Bit Lights to Micro Expansion Boards is similar to connecting lights and cables to Strip Lights. With the expansion board facing up, ensure the side of the connector with the wires exposed is facing down. If a plug won’t fit easily into a port connector, do not force it. Use your fingernail to push the plastic part of the connector to the micro port.

 

Installing Bit Lights under LEGO® bricks and plates.

When installing Bit Lights under LEGO® pieces, ensure they are placed the correct way up (Yellow LED component exposed). You can either place them directly on top of LEGO® studs or in between.

 


OK, Let’s Begin!

 

1.) We will first light up the space shuttle. Disconnect and disassemble the three jet pieces from the shuttle as shown below:

 

Take out a White 30cm Micro Bit Light and with the LED facing up, place it inside one of the black rounded bricks. Secure the light by connecting a provided Trans Orange Round Plate 1×1 over the top.

 

Thread the connector end of the cable through the bottom of the black round plate with open stud, then reconnect this along with the clip tile to the back as shown below:

 

Reconnect this section to the back of the shuttle ensuring the cable is facing the same way as shown in the below images.

 

 

2.) Repeat the previous step to install another 2x White 30cm Micro Bit Lights to the two other jet sections (using the provided Trans Orange Round Plate 1×1 to secure the lights in place). Reconnect each jet section to the back of the shuttle with the cable facing the same way.

 

 

3.) Group the three cables together toward the shuttle and twist them around each other a few times. Continue to twist the cables around each other all the way to the end to form one larger cable. Connect the three Micro Bit Lights to the Micro 2-4 Port Expansion Board (smaller ports).

 

 

4.) Connect a 5cm Connecting Cable to the larger port on this expansion board, then connect the other end of the cable to one of the OUT ports on the Flicker Effects Board

 

Connect another 5cm Connecting Cable to the IN port on the Flicker Effects Board, then connect the other end of this cable to a 6-Port Expansion Board. Connect the USB Power Cable to the 6-Port Expansion Board, then connect the other end of the USB cable to your USB Power Bank or wall adaptor (sold separately) to test the space shuttle lights are working OK with the flickering effect.

 

Note: If you experience any issues with the lights not working and suspect an issue with a component, please try a different port on the expansion board to verify where the fault lies (with the light, expansion board or effects board). To correct any issues with expansion board ports, please view the section addressing expansion board issues on our online troubleshooting guide.

 

5.) Place the Space Shuttle in front of the space station set and bring the cables and components around the left side of the stand. Turn the set around and connect a 15cm Connecting Cable to the 6-Port Expansion Board. Connect the other end of the cable to a White Strip Light

 

Connect a new 5cm Connecting Cable to the other end of the Strip Light, then peel off the adhesive backing protective paper on the back of the Strip Light.

 

 

6.) Thread the strip light through in between the stand’s vertical technic stand pieces, then wind the cable around the back stand leg and thread it back through in between. Turn the set around to the front, then stick the Strip Light underneath the top of the stand in the below position.

 

Turn the Power ON to test the strip light is working OK.

 

Note: If you experience any issues with the lights not working and suspect an issue with a component, please try a different port on the expansion board to verify where the fault lies (with the light, expansion board or effects board).

Important things to note:

Laying cables in between and underneath bricks

Cables can fit in between and underneath LEGO® bricks, plates, and tiles providing they are laid correctly between the LEGO® studs. Do NOT forcefully join LEGO® together around cables; instead ensure they are laying comfortably in between each stud.

CAUTION: Forcing LEGO® to connect over a cable can result in damaging the cable and light.

Connecting cable connectors to Expansion Boards

Take extra care when inserting connectors to ports of Expansion Boards. Connectors can be inserted only one way. With the expansion board facing up, look for the soldered “=” symbol on the left side of the port. The connector side with the wires exposed should be facing toward the soldered “=” symbol as you insert into the port. If a plug won’t fit easily into a port connector, do not force it.

Incorrectly inserting the connector can can result in bent pins inside the port or possible overheating of the expansion board when connected.

Connecting cable connectors to Strip Lights

Take extra care when inserting connectors to ports on the Strip Lights. Connectors can be inserted only one way. With the Strip Light facing up, ensure the side of the connector with the wires exposed is facing down. If a plug won’t fit easily into a port connector, don’t force it. Doing so will damage the plug and the connector.

Installing Bit Lights under LEGO® bricks and plates.

When installing Bit Lights under LEGO® pieces, ensure they are placed the correct way up (Yellow LED component exposed). You can either place them directly on top of LEGO® studs or in between.

 


OK, Let’s Begin!

 

1.) We will install lights to the bottom rocket first. Start by disconnecting the bottom jet sections followed by the tail pieces as per below:

 

 

2.) Using the LEGO Removal tool, disconnect the following wall section from the bottom as shown below


Carefully press down at the following position to allow you to completely pull this section out.

 

3.) Repeat previous step to remove the wall section to the right

 

 

4.)Remove the section in the middle by lifting out sections using your finger as well as using the LEGO removal tool

 

5.) Use the LEGO Removal tool to disconnect the following sections to then allow us to remove the internal white wall section as well as the red pieces above and underneath

 

6.) Take the 5 jet sections and starting with one, disconnect the bottom half then take a White 30cm Bit Lightand thread the connector side of the cable down through the centre of the top of the jet (trans orange piece). Thread it all the way through until the Bit Light is right up against the edge of the trans orange piece.


Slightly bend the Bit Light on a 90 degree angle so that it sits flat, then secure it in place by connecting one of the provided Trans Orange Round Plate 1×1over the top


Reconnect the top half of the jet section back to the bottom half ensuring the cable from the Bit Light is tucked neatly underneath the dark grey bars.

Take caution when reconnecting to the bottom half and ensure there is enough cable slack between the jet section and bottom half for the technic bar to push against the cable as the two sections reconnect. If there is not enough cable slack, the technic bar will push the cable out and snap the cable.

 


7.)
Repeat previous step to install White 30cm Bit Lights to the other four Jet sections using more of the provided Trans Orange Round Plate 1×1

 

 

8.) Reconnect the bottom three jet sections back to the base of the rocket starting with the one in the centre. Ensure the cable from each jet light is laid toward the top centre as shown below:


9.)
 Take the wall section closest to the bottom and then reconnect this to the ship starting with the top part.


10.) 
Reconnect the Jet section that connects to the bottom of the wall section we just reconnected ensuring all cables are neatly laid towards the centre.

Flip the rocket over and then reconnect the remaining wall section by first reconnecting the top part then reconnect the remaining Jet section.

 

11.) Take 1x Flicker Effects Board and connect the two shortest Bit Light Cables to the OUT ports (There are 3 OUT ports in total).

12.) Take remaining three Bit Light cables and connect them to a 6-Port Expansion Board


13.) 
Take a 5cm Connecting Cable and connect one end to the 6-port Expansion Board and connect the other end to the remaining OUT port on the Flicker Effects Board.


14.) 
Take a Flat Battery Pack and insert 2x CR2032 Batteries to it and then connect the battery pack cable to the IN Port on the Flicker Effects Board

Turn the Battery Pack on and confirm all lights and effects are working OK

Note: If you experience any issues with the lights not working and suspect an issue with a component, please try a different port on the expansion board to verify where the fault lies (with the light or expansion board). To correct any issues with expansion board ports, please view the section addressing expansion board issues on our online troubleshooting guide.

15.)  Eliminate excess cabling by grouping all the cables and twisting them around each other. Tuck everything in to the open middle section.


Reconnect remaining sections of the Rocket.


To turn On and OFF the lights, simply detach the middle section to access the Battery Pack.

16.) We will now proceed to lighting the middle section of the Saturn V. Using the LEGO Removal Tool, disconnect the following sections (two main and one centre section).

17.) Remove the internal walls

18.) Disconnect the five Jet sections

19.)Disassemble one of the Jets and then take a White 30cm Bit Light and then thread the connector side through the top of outer section. Thread it all the way through until the component is right up against the edge.


Carefully bend the Bit Light 90 degrees so that it now sits flat against the hole then secure it in place by reconnecting the Trans Orange Round Plate

Thread the cable through the piece that connects behind and then carefully reconnect the white bar securing all pieces together.

Take caution when reconnecting to the white bar and ensure there is enough cable slack between the jet section and white bar for the bar to push against the cable as the two pieces reconnect. If there is not enough cable slack, the white bar will push the cable out and snap the cable.

20.) Repeat previous step to install White 30cm Bit Lights to the other four Jet sections.

21.)Reconnect the five Jet sections to the base starting with the bottom ones, ensuring the cables for each light is laid neatly up the centre as shown below

22.) Turn the section over on it’s side and then pull all the cables up to the top section. Reconnect the bottom inside wall section to secure the cables in place.


23.)
 Take the the shortest two cables and connect them to the OUT ports on Flicker Effects Board


24.)
Connect the remaining three cables to a 6-Port Expansion Board 

Connect one end of a 5cm Connecting Cable to the 6-port Expansion Board and connect the other end to the remaining OUT port on the Flicker Effects Board


25.)
 Take a Flat Battery Pack and insert 2x CR2032 Batteries to it then connect the battery pack cable to the IN Port on the Flicker Effects Board. Turn the Battery Pack on and confirm all lights and effects are working OK

 

Note: If you experience any issues with the lights not working and suspect an issue with a component, please try a different port on the expansion board to verify where the fault lies (with the light or expansion board). To correct any issues with expansion board ports, please view the section addressing expansion board issues on our online troubleshooting guide.

 


26.)
Eliminate excess cabling by grouping all the cables and twisting them around each other. Tuck everything inside the open top section.


27.)
Reconnect the outside sections starting with the two main sections followed by the middle section

To turn On and OFF the lights, simply detach the middle section (from the bottom where you the cables are visible) to access the Battery Pack.


This completes installation of the lights to the middle section of the Saturn V. Let’s move on to the top and final section.


28.) Take the top section and disconnect one of the outside wall sections using the LEGO Removal Tool


Remove the outside wall section underneath


29.) Disconnect the bottom section to allow us to then remove the following dark grey round bricks in the centre.


30.) Reconnect the bottom section as well as one of the outside wall sections


31.) Disconnect the Jet section and then disassemble pieces as shown below:


32.) Follow Step 19 to install the remaining White 30cm Bit Light to this Jet section using the provided Trans Orange Round Plate 1×1. 

Take caution when reconnecting to the white bar and ensure there is enough cable slack between the jet section and white bar for the bar to push against the cable as the two pieces reconnect. If there is not enough cable slack, the white bar will push the cable out and snap the cable.


33.) Pull the cable around the bottom of the Jet and then secure it in between the light grey dish and dark grey modified brick.


34.) Reconnect the Jet section back to the bottom of this rocket section ensuring the cable is facing toward the centre of the open section above.


Lay the cable underneath the following LEGO pieces in between studs.


35.) Connect the other end of the Bit Light cable to any OUT port on the remaining Flicker Effects Board


Take the remaining Flat Battery Pack and insert 2x CR2032 Batteries to it. Connect the battery pack cable to the IN port on the Flicker Effects Board


36.) Eliminate excess cable by looping and twisting the cable around a few times. Tuck everything into the lower compartment. The Battery Pack should sit neatly sideways.


37.) Turn on the battery pack and then reconnect the outside wall section.

This finally completes installation of the Light My Bricks Apollo Saturn V Lighting Kit. Your light kit can be enjoyed either with all 3 sections connected or all apart.

When installing Bit Lights under LEGO® pieces, ensure they are placed the correct way up (Yellow LED component exposed). You can either place them directly on top of LEGO® studs or in between.

 


OK, Let’s Begin!

 

1.) First remove the bottle from the stand and disconnect the bottle top as well as top window sections to allow us to remove the ship.

 

 

2.) Remove the three masts from the ship, then disconnect the following sections around the front:

 

 

3.) Take a White 30cm Bit Light and thread the connector end of the cable through the gap of the brown clip on the back of the ship. Thread it all the way through until the Bit Light is up against the edge of the gap. Ensure the LED is facing up, then lay the cable down the side of the ship as shown below. Secure it in place by reconnecting the back section over the top. The Bit Light should be seen slightly peaking out from below the brown clip.

 

 

4.) Take another White 30cm Bit Light and slightly bend the wire down about 1cm from the top of the Bit Light as shown below. Hook the bit light over the following stud, then secure it in place by reconnecting the brown grill tile over the top.

 

Lay the cable down in between studs, then reconnect the side brown wall tile.

 

Repeat this process to install another White 30cm Bit Light to the left, securing it in place by reconnecting the brown tile over the top.

 

 

5.)  Before reconnecting the brown wall tile, slide in the 1×6 plate as shown below. You may need to slightly lift up the two bit lights to reconnect the plate back in place. Reconnect the brown wall tile by sliding it in and connecting it underneath, then reconnect the last remaining section to the back of the ship.

 

Reconnect the three masts then group the three cables together and twist/wind them around each other a few times at the top to lock them in place.

 

 

6.) Take the AA Battery Pack and insert 3x AA Batteries to it. Connect the battery pack cable to the first port on the 6-Port Expansion Board. Connect the three cables from the ship to the spare ports on the expansion board, then turn ON the battery pack to test the lights connected are working OK.

 

Note: If you experience any issues with the lights not working and suspect an issue with a component, please try a different port on the expansion board to verify where the fault lies (with the light or expansion board). To correct any issues with expansion board ports, please view the section addressing expansion board issues on our online troubleshooting guide.

 

Disconnect the three bit lights and battery pack from the expansion board, then continue to twist/wind the cables around each other all the way to the end so they all come together to form one larger cable.

 

 

7.) Take two trans light blue round plates from inside the bottle then take out a Blue 30cm Bit Light and place it directly over one of studs. Secure the Bit Light in place by reconnecting the other trans light blue round plate over the top as shown below:

 

Repeat this step to install another 5x Blue 30cm Bit Lights using more of the trans light blue round plates from inside the bottle to secure them in place.

 

Take the 8-Port Expansion Board and connect the AA Battery Pack to it, then connect all six Blue Bit Light cables. Turn ON the battery pack to test all the blue lights are working OK.

 

Note: If you experience any issues with the lights not working and suspect an issue with a component, please try a different port on the expansion board to verify where the fault lies (with the light or expansion board). To correct any issues with expansion board ports, please view the section addressing expansion board issues on our online troubleshooting guide.

 

 

8.) Tip all the trans light blue round plates out of the bottle then take an Adhesive Square and stick it to the side of the trans light blue plates where we have installed one of the Blue Bit Lights to. We will be installing 6 blue lights around the base of the bottle.

 

Mount the LEGO plates with Bit Light to the base of the bottle as shown below, then thread the connector end of the cable through the lower gap of the bottle. Pull the cable all the way out from behind.

 

We will now install the remaining five Blue Bit Lights around the base of the bottle. Using the same method as above, mount the other five trans light blue round plates with Bit Lights to the base of the bottle using extra Adhesive Squares. Continue to thread the other end of the cables through the same gap we did for the first Blue Bit Light.

 

 

9.) Turn the bottle around to the back, then ensure all cables inside the bottle are laid away from the brown plates except for the two cables shown below. Lay these two cables in between the brown plates.

 

Twist/wind the six cables around each other all the way to the ends so they come together to form one larger cable, then starting with the shorter two cables, connect all six cables to the 8-Port Expansion Board.

 

Group all the cables closest the expansion board and twist/wind them around the larger cable so they group together.

 

 

10.) Pour back in, all of the trans light blue round plates into the bottle. Spread the pieces out evenly to try and cover the cables inside, then turn the bottle back around to the front.

 

Take the ship and thread the group of three cables through the gap on the left of the blue bit light cables. Pull the cables all the way out from behind to then allow you to reconnect the ship back inside the bottle.

 

 

11.) Reconnect all the trans clear sections which make up main section of the bottle.

 

 

12.) Take a White 30cm Bit Light and with the cable facing down, place it over the centre of the studs on top of the main bottle section. Secure the Bit Light in place by reconnecting the bottle top section.

 

Bring the other end of the cable across to the right,  then twist/wind it around the group of white 30cm bit lights (on the right side). Connect the bit light to the next port on the 6-Port Expansion Board.

 

Twist/wind any remaining excess cables around the larger group of cables as shown below:

 

 

13.) Take a Multi Effects Board and connect a 5cm Connecting Cable into one of the OUT ports (side with two ports). Connect the other end of the 5cm Connecting Cable to a spare port on the 8-Port Expansion Board.

 

Take another 5cm Connecting Cable and connect it to the IN port on the Multi Effects Board (side with one port). Connect the other end of the 5cm Connecting Cable to a spare port on the 6-Port Expansion Board, then connect the AA Battery Pack to the remaining Port.

 

 

14.) We can now set the effect we want. For a slow effect to represent ‘waves of the sea’, we chose to the ‘Pulse’ effect. Flick the switch to the far right for ‘Pulse’, then turn the speed wheel all the way to the left for the slowest speed. Alternatively, you can set whichever effect and speed you desire by simply changing the channel switch and adjusting the speed wheel. Once you are happy with your desired effect, place the bottle back on top of the bottle stand with the back facing toward you still.

 

Twist/wind the two larger cables together then fold up the cables so they can be neatly hidden underneath the bottle in between the stand and bottle. Neatly place the AA Battery Pack to cover up the gap then turn the bottle around to the front.

 

This finally completes installation of the Light My Bricks Ship in a Bottle Light Kit. We thank you for purchasing this product!

Light My Bricks : Caterham LED Lighting Kit



Here is the instructions document for the LEGO Caterham LED lighting kit. Please read and follow the steps carefully to ensure this lighting kit is installed properly.


Package contents:

  • 4x White Bit Lights (with 30cm cable)
  • 6x White Bit Lights (with 15 cm cable)
  • 1x 12-port Expansion Board
  • 1x Flat Battery Pack (2x CR2032 Batteries Required)

Extra LEGO Pieces

  • 3x LEGO Trans Red 1×1 plates
  • 3x LEGO Trans Clear 1×1 plates

Important things to note:

Laying cables in between and underneath bricks

Cables can fit in between and underneath LEGO® bricks, plates, and tiles providing they are laid correctly between the LEGO® studs. Do NOT forcefully join LEGO® together around cables; instead ensure they are laying comfortably in between each stud.




CAUTION: Forcing LEGO® to connect over a cable can result in damaging the cable and light.

Connecting cable connectors to Expansion Boards

Take extra care when inserting connectors to ports of Expansion Boards. Connectors can be inserted only one way. With the expansion board facing up, look for the soldered “=” symbol on the left side of the port. The connector side with the wires exposed should be facing toward the soldered “=” symbol as you insert into the port. If a plug won’t fit easily into a port connector, do not force it.

Incorrectly inserting the connector can result in bent pins inside the port or possible overheating of the expansion board when connected.



Installing Bit Lights under LEGO® bricks and plates.

When installing Bit Lights under LEGO® pieces, ensure they are placed the correct way up (Yellow LED component exposed). You can either place them directly on top of LEGO® studs or in between.






OK, Let’s Begin!


Instructions for installing this kit

1.) We will install bit lights to the headlights and blinkers first. Start by removing the headlight sections and disassemble the pieces as per below:





2.) We will first install lights to each blinker. Disassemble pieces of the blinkers and then take one White Bit Light 30cm and thread the connector side through the large hole of the black LEGO cone. Pull the cable all the way through from the other side until the LED component is right up inside the LEGO cone.





Secure the bit light in place by reconnecting the trans orange round plate. Reconnect the light grey LEGO piece to the other side and then reconnect this section back.




3.) Take another White Bit Light 30cm and place the LED component part in the centre of the black round LEGO piece. With the cable facing downward, reconnect the trans clear round LEGO piece over the top ensuring the LED component sits securely in the centre.




Reconnect the headlight section back on top of the blinker and then reconnect this whole section back to the left side of the Caterham.



Repeats step 2 and 3 to install another 2x White Bit Lights 30cm to the other side’s headlight and blinker.


4.) We will now lay the cables through to the back of the vehicle. Start by removing the bonnet section as well as the yellow pieces along the side.




Carefully lay the cables in between studs and then secure them by reconnecting the yellow pieces over the top.



5.) Thread the cables down underneath the vehicle, and then thread the cable back up from underneath as per below.




6.) Remove the passenger seat as well as the LEGO pieces behind to allow us to bring the cables to the back of the vehicle.




7.) Take the 12-port expansion board and connect the cables we have just brought over into the port closest to that side.


8.)Reconnect the seat and then lay the cables underneath and in between studs before then reconnecting pieces over the top.





Hide the rest of the cables along the sides underneath the yellow and black LEGO pieces ensuring you lay them in between studs.



9.) Turn the vehicle around and do the same for the headlight and blinkers on the drivers side using the same method we did in the previous step.













10.)Reconnect the bonnet section of the Caterham


11.) We will now move onto installing lights to the back of the Caterham. Note: We will be required to swap out a few of the LEGO tiles to enable us to install our bit lights underneath.


First remove the middle section as well as the 2 side sections as per below.




12.) We will start with the right side first. Remove the trans red and white tiles.


Take one White Bit Light 15cm and place the LED component directly over the black stud to the far right. Ensure the cable is facing toward the left and underneath the stud in the middle, then connect the trans clear 1×1 plate (provided in this kit) directly over the top.



Take another White Bit Light 15cm and place the LED component directly over the black stud in the middle. Ensure the cable is facing toward the left and this time, above the black stud to the left and then connect the trans red 1×1 plate (provided in this kit) directly over the top.


With the 2 cables underneath and above the black stud furthest to the left, reconnect the trans clear tile (original piece) directly over the top.


13.) Disconnect the grey LEGO piece underneath and then pull the two cables underneath and then and then upward. Reconnect the grey piece over the top to secure the cables down before reconnecting the whole section back to the Caterham.






14.) Repeat the previous 2 steps to install another 2x White Bit Light 15cm to the left section of the back of the Caterham again, swapping out the trans red and white tiles with the provided trans red and white plates.



15.) Take the middle section and then remove both the trans red and white tiles.



Take another White Bit Light 15cm and place the LED component over the left black stud and with the cable facing down, connect the trans clear plate (provided in this kit) directly over the top.



Repeat this step to install another White Bit Light 15cm to the right side of the middle section this time, using the trans red plate (provided in this kit) to connect directly over the top.


16.) Turn this middle section over and the bring the 2 cables up and then disconnect and reconnect the blue lego plate over the top.



17.) Reconnect the middle section back to the back of the Caterham ensuring the cables are all neatly tucked in behind the back then disconnect the two headlight and blinker cables from each side of the expansion board.




18.) Connect the two cables from the middle back section into each side of the expansion board then wind them around the expansion board twice.



19.) Now take the cables from the back left and right sections (4 cables) and then connect them to the next available ports on each side of the expansion board. Wind them around the expansion board (along with the first 2 cables we connected) another 2 times or until we have about 4–5cm of slack.



19.) Reconnect the cables from the 2 headlights and 2 blinker cables we removed earlier to each side of the expansion board.


20.) Take the flat battery pack and insert 2x CR2032 batteries into it. Connect the battery pack cable into one of the available ports of the expansion board.


21.) Neatly place the expansion board and cables into the back of the boot. The expansion board should fit exactly in the below position.


Neatly place the battery pack on top ensuring you tuck in the battery cable underneath.


22.) Reconnect the sections of the back which we removed earlier.



This now completes installation of your LEGO Caterham LED Lighting Kit. Now turn on and enjoy!
