RE: Under-Cabinet lights

How does one retro-fit the small string lights under the lower cabinets close to the floor? What type of fastner is used to keep them tucked under the cabinet without falling to the floor? Where would they plug in?
Thank you.

Not sure if I follow where you are putting these lights. Under the lower cabinets to add light to the floor? Or under the upper cabinets to light the counter top? I used a string light from HD to light my countertops and they have a channel with an adhesive backing to it that you just stick where you want it and stuff the lights in the channel. Pretty slick. You can also get like a cable strap with the small nails also. As for the plugs, I put outlets inside my cabinets that are controlled by a switch. You run the wire in through a small hole in the bottom of the cabinet.

Hope this helps,
