Backing Install

This is when the glass neon tubes sit on top of a display of some sort.


  • Easiest option for self install.
  • Makes the neon more portable.
  • If the backing is opaque, it allows the wires and transformer to look hidden.
  • Ideal for gifts, where you don't know where the recipient plans to put the neon.
  • Ideal for storefronts / suspension.
  • Easy to add a dimmer.


  • Only applicable in certain scenarios depending on clients space.
  • Neon itself can't be very large (no larger than 60 inches).
  • Even if the backing is opaque you still will see a power cord that goes into the outlet.
  • To hide the power cord you need a recessed outlet or electrical work done.
