Hey all, just looking for some guidance to access the electrical behind the flex face. It does not hinge open. Is the only way to gain access for repairs to the electrical by removing clips? If so any guidance on that would be appreciated.

It does look like flex material.  Without seeing the whole side I'm only guessing so...


i would drill a hole in the cabinet (under the molding and then fill with silicone) and look inside.   Hopefully there are extruded clips/bars holding the face taut so a whole section can come off without dealing with a multitude of clips.    From the angle of the photo I'd say this is a signcomp bleed frame.   Are there black plastic clips in the gap above/below the face?  if so you can remove them with a screwdriver - assuming the whole thing doesn't come off.  I'd sure there are videos on tensioning signcomp extrusion kits that can show much better than i could explain.   A tensioning tool signcomp will make re-installing the clips easier but again a screwdriver can do the job, just a lot slower.   Anyway, that's my guess!

Thanks for the reply, it’s a Signtech CTS with CTS clips. There not the black ones they are metal and look rusted out. Any tricks to taking them off to get at the lights with out damaging the material?

TBH, even after doing signs for a zillion or so years, I don't think I've ever had the pleasure of using that system.   IDK if the tensioning instructions from signcomp will be helpful but this was on their site.    The last section mentions using a screwdriver to depress the clip like with the plastic ones but IDK how that will work if they are rusted.   However i didn't see pricing on the site and replacement clips might not be available anymore.

That's the same information i was going to post. I've been doing this for 2 zillion years and never ran into those But here it the product link for the clips and they have some PDF probably the as Rocco's info but it's worth looking at.

Good Luck
