Anyone know either where I can get good pre-made cyberlox with LED in them or how I could install LEDs in pre-made Cyberlox?

I want some to enhance a dance costume I have, but so far I've either found good Cyberlox without LED or bad Cyberlox with LED.

I'm in the UK but US suppliers would also be an option

As someone with a fair bit of experience in LEDs and electronics and very little experience in cyberlocks, I don't think it's too difficult. cyberlocks are just hollow tubes, right? Easiest solution would be to solder some LEDs (and the necessary resistors) in series along a wire and thread it through the 'lock. If you were doing multiple 'locks you could power it off a 9v or a couple hidden in a headband. Power source depends on how many LEDs you're intending to put into it. Also some sites sell strips of LEDs, like so: https://www.glowire.com/
which might give you the desired effect.

I would recommend EL Wire over LEDs though, if only for easy of use and "cyberpunk" look. Cut to size, hook up to power, ready to go.

How about using EL wire instead of LEDs?

I'd rather die on paws, than live on feet.
