Other lighting products for watercraft are adhesive or utilize tape, while the Patented Rub Rail Lighting Systems are engineered to fit INTO the rub rail system just below the point of contact. The lights & wiring are concealed and ride above the rail’s natural air gap, so no matter many docks it bumps, the lights keep shining.
