    • As shown in the first photo, it is very important to look at the color of the wires for the lights in this kit.

    • Lights with red and black wires can be connected to any adapter their plugs will fit into.

    • Lights with blue and white wires can ONLY be connected to either a BRANCH09 or BRANCH09X adapter board. Connecting a light with blue and white wires to any other adapter board (including other adapters where the plugs fit) will destroy the light.

    • The second photo is a visual reference for the controllers and adapter boards included with your kit. You may want to print a copy to reference as you walk through the instructions. You can download a PDF copy of this illustration here.

    • Here are some other very important tips to keep in mind as you connect the parts in this kit:

    • Plugs connect to adapter boards and controllers only one way. Do not force plugs.

    • Do not remove plugs with tabs by pulling on the wire. Always use your fingernails or tweezers to remove plugs by pulling on the tabs of the plug, not the wires.

    • Many boards have connectors that face vertically (upward). Use extra care when connecting or disconnecting plugs to these connectors. Pulling or pushing sideways on any vertically-facing plug can cause the plug to come detached from its circuit board.

    • This kit includes a bag of spare parts. If you damage a wire or light while installing your kit, you can use one of the spares in the Spare Parts Bag.

    • Note that the Spare Parts Bag does not include replacements for all parts. If you damage a part that is not included in the Spare Parts Bag, contact us to purchase a replacement.

  3. Before starting to install the lights, separate your Hogwarts castle into its two halves.  You will install lights into the "Great Hall" half of the castle first.
    • Before starting to install the lights, separate your Hogwarts castle into its two halves. You will install lights into the "Great Hall" half of the castle first.

    • At multiple points during the installation, you will be working with your castle set on its side, so you can access the large spaces beneath the rock elements. This is where the majority of wires will run in the first section.

    • As shown in the first photo, carefully remove the top section from the large tower. This will make it easier to rest the castle on its side in later steps.

    • As shown in the photo (red arrows), make sure the top part of the tower removes cleanly, with all dark tan parts still attached to the underside of the top section.

  4. As shown in the photos for this step, carefully remove the top parts of the boathouse.  This is where you will begin your installation. As shown in the photos for this step, carefully remove the top parts of the boathouse.  This is where you will begin your installation.
    • As shown in the photos for this step, carefully remove the top parts of the boathouse. This is where you will begin your installation.

  5. Take the bag labeled "Dock Torches" from your kit box, and carefully remove the two replacement torch parts. The wires on the dock torch lights are extremely thin, and they can easily become tangled.  If this happens, carefully un-tangle the wires, being careful not to pull.  Pulling can damage the lights. Install the two replacement dock lights as shown in the second photo.

    • Install the two replacement dock lights as shown in the second photo.

    • As shown in the third photo by the blue line, carefully run the thin wires next to the studs on the dark tan plate.

    • Whenever you are running wires, be very careful to run them along the side of studs, or between studs. Never run wires on top of or over studs-- doing so will cause the wires to become pinched or cut when you snap parts on top of the wires.

  6. As shown in the photos for this step, carefully re-attach the boathouse parts, being careful to keep the wires along side of the studs when you snap parts on top of them. As shown by the red arrows, the thin wires should extend out the back of the boathouse.  Here again, make sure the wires run between the studs on the dark bluish gray plate in back when you snap the tan parts back on top of it. At the end of this step, you should have a re-assembled boathouse as shown in the third photo.

  7. This is the first of several times you will be laying your castle on its side.
    • This is the first of several times you will be laying your castle on its side.

    • Make sure you are working in a large enough space to allow the full castle to be laid on its side without any side or top parts hitting anything in your work area.

    • While tilting the castle backwards, you can hold the backside with your hand to help ease it onto your work surface. To minimize the chance of damage, move the castle slowly.

    • If anything breaks or any parts come loose, it is a good idea to keep the original LEGO® installation instructions nearby.

    • After you have tilted your castle on its side and rested it on your work surface, it should look like the example in the photo.

  8. As shown in the photos for this step, carefully feed the boathouse wires through the holes in the Technic bricks at the base of the castle.  The plugs are small enough that they will fit through the holes. As shown in the second and third photo, wrap the wires several times around the light bluish gray brick close to the rear of the castle.  This provides tension relief and helps keep the wires from scraping when you move your castle. An important part of success in installing this light kit is making sure the wires that run underneath the castle are protected from scraping between the bottom of the castle and the surface you place it on after installing the light kit.  If any wires scrape, they are more likely to break or cause a short circuit over time.

    • As shown in the third photo, carefully route the wire for the first torch down the wall and next to (not on top of) the stud closest to the wall as shown by the red circle in the third photo.

    • Make sure to leave a little extra wire along the wall running up to the torch. When you snap the LEGO® parts back on top of the wires, they will pull down a bit. Without a little slack, there is a chance the lights will be pulled from the torch when you re-attach parts in later steps.

  12. As shown in the first photo, re-attach the LEGO® plate on top of the first torch light wire. As shown in the second photo, run the wire from the first torch near the second torch, then run the wires from the first three torches toward the outer edge of the hall as shown by the red arrows in the second photo.

    • Take the USB power cable from your kit and connect the power wire to the TRUNK08 main control board as shown by the green arrow in the third photo.

    • Connect the USB cable to a power source. The green power light on the TRUNK08 main control board should turn on.

    • If the green power light not come on, double-check to make sure all plugs are fully inserted.

    • Once connected to power, the lights you have connected so far should turn on and begin running their effects automatically. The video in this step shows how the effects should look.

    • If the effects are different from those shown in the video, you may have connected lights to the BRANCH09X adapter board in the wrong order. Go back and check the lighting connections and compare to earlier steps in this guide to make sure the lights are connected to the correct plugs on the BRANCH09X adapter board.

    • If your lights do not look and operate as shown in the video, do not continue installation. Double-check all connections, and if lights still do not work, contact us at support@brickstuff.com for further assistance.

  23. Remove Bag 7 from your kit.  Bag 7 will contain the parts needed to mount the lights inside the eight windows of the main tower, and also parts needed to start mounting lights in the top of the tower. Carefully remove the parts from Bag 7, making sure not to tangle any wires (or to carefully un-tangle any wires that may have become tangled). The second photo shows the parts from Bag 7 that you will use first.

    • When feeding cables, make sure they all run through the space under the brick, not between the brick and any studs below. This could pinch the wire.

    • Run the black connecting cable down the side of the tower so it sits near the base as shown in the third photo.

    • Unlike the black INPUT cable (blue arrow in the third photo), this black OUTPUT cable (green arrow) will not feed under the castle base but will instead hang loose.

  30. As shown in the first photo carefully re-attach the long tower panel. Make sure none of the wires covered by the long tower panel are pinched between any studs.  This is especially critical at the tower base, where there is a large side-facing plate.  If wires get pinched, they can break.

    • Make sure none of the wires covered by the long tower panel are pinched between any studs. This is especially critical at the tower base, where there is a large side-facing plate. If wires get pinched, they can break.

    • Once you have completely re-attached the tower side panel, you should have the black 3-wire OUTPUT connecting cable extending outside of the castle as shown in the second photo.

  31. Next you will run the wires from the eight window lights DOWN into the space beneath the castle. Carefully re-attach the panels you removed in Step 22, beginning with the two narrow panels. When re-attaching each panel, be careful that wires do not become pinched by any studs behind the panels.  Route the wires to the side of each panel and make sure no wires are pinched between studs.
    • Next you will run the wires from the eight window lights DOWN into the space beneath the castle.

    • Carefully re-attach the panels you removed in Step 22, beginning with the two narrow panels.

    • When re-attaching each panel, be careful that wires do not become pinched by any studs behind the panels. Route the wires to the side of each panel and make sure no wires are pinched between studs.

    • As shown by the green circle in the second photo, carefully feed each light wire through the hole at the base of the tower. Push the wire all the way into the hole so there is as little slack above the ground level as possible.

    • Lights that are mounted toward the top of a tower section may just barely reach the connection point underneath the castle. For this reason, make sure wires have as little slack as possible after feeding through the hole shown in the second photo.

    • Repeat this process for the two narrow side panels, and do the center (larger) panel last.

    • The center panel will be more difficult to attach than the others. As shown in the third photo, feed the wires down into the hole in the base of the castle, then carefully re-attach the last panel.

    • After re-attaching the last panel, check around the tower to make sure no wires are showing.

  32. Carefully turn your castle on its side and lay it on a soft, flat surface. As shown in the first photo, gather the eight wires from the window lights that you fed down from the tower in the previous step.
    • Carefully turn your castle on its side and lay it on a soft, flat surface.

    • As shown in the first photo, gather the eight wires from the window lights that you fed down from the tower in the previous step.

    • It may be difficult to locate all eight wires. When you fed the wires down into the castle base in the previous step, some wires may have gotten stuck. If you can't locate all eight wires, use a flashlight and tweezers to search up inside the base of the castle until you have located all eight wires.

    • If any wires are too short to reach, you will need to check back under the window panels above to see if there was excess slack in any of the wires. If all wires are pulled tight but still do not reach, you may need to re-locate the window light for any short wires one or two levels lower in the tower panel (refer to Steps 26-27).

    • Take the second BRANCH09X adapter board from Bag 7 and connect the eight window light wires to plugs #2 through #9 on the adapter board.

    • Do not connect any window lights to plug #1 on the BRANCH09X adapter. You will use this plug for another light later. If you connect a window light to plug #1, the effects will not work properly.

  33. After you have connected all eight window lights to the BRANCH09X adapter board in the previous step, take the 24" 3-wire black connecting cable you fed down into the castle base in Step 30 and connect it to the OUTPUT plug of the BRANCH09X adapter board, as shown by the green arrow in the first photo. Make sure you are connecting the black cable you fed down into the base in Step 27, NOT the black cable you left hanging outside the castle in Step 32. Make sure you connect the black cable to the OUTPUT plug on the BRANCH09X adapter board, NOT the INPUT plug.
    • After you have connected all eight window lights to the BRANCH09X adapter board in the previous step, take the 24" 3-wire black connecting cable you fed down into the castle base in Step 30 and connect it to the OUTPUT plug of the BRANCH09X adapter board, as shown by the green arrow in the first photo.

    • Make sure you are connecting the black cable you fed down into the base in Step 27, NOT the black cable you left hanging outside the castle in Step 32.

    • Make sure you connect the black cable to the OUTPUT plug on the BRANCH09X adapter board, NOT the INPUT plug.

    • Next, locate the first BRANCH09X adapter board you connected in Step 10. This is the adapter board with the short 1.5" 3-wire red or black cable connected to the OUTPUT plug. (see the board in the second photo)

    • Connect the other end of the short 3-wire red or black connecting cable to the INPUT plug of the BRANCH09X adapter board that has the eight window lights connected to it.

    • After connecting the two BRANCH09X adapter boards, your setup should look like the connections in the third photo.

    • The first BRANCH09X adapter board (with the blue wires connected to it) should have a 12" RED cable connected to the INPUT plug and the short 1.5" red or black cable connected to the OUTPUT plug.

    • The second BRANCH09X adapter should have the other end of the short 1.5" red or black cable connected to its INPUT plug, and should have the 24" black cable from the top of the tower connected to its OUTPUT plug.

  34. Take the second green LED from Bag 1 (inside the smaller bag labeled "Green LEDs") and attach a small sticky square to the back as shown in the first photo. Feed the LED wire through the small gap in the base of the tower as shown by the blue arrow in the second photo. As shown by the red circle in the third photo, mount the green LED to the BACK side of the plate above the door at the base of the tower.

    • Make sure that no wires are hanging below the base of the castle. Any wires left hanging will rub against the LEGO base plates and the surface you use to display your castle, causing the wires to break over time.

  36. Take the speaker and carefully remove it from its cardboard box. Inside Bag 7, there should be two squares of double-stick tape (see the second photo).  You will use these to mount the speaker inside the base of the castle. As shown in the third photo, stick one of the double-stick tape squares to the back of the speaker in preparation for mounting. (You can save the extra square in case you need to move or re-mount the speaker in the future)

    • Make sure the speaker wire does not pass under the bottom of the castle base, where it will rub against the surface you place your castle on.

  38. If your kit includes color-changing spotlights, now is a good time to mount the first five of them since your castle is already on its side with the bottom exposed.  There should be a total of 10 spotlights in Bag 11 in your kit. Inside Bag 11, there should be a special cable approximately 36" in length.  As shown in the first photo, this cable has a small connector on one end (red arrow) and a larger connector on the other end (blue arrow).  Both connectors have three wires.

  41. Now you can attach the five spotlights to the castle base.  It's up to you where to mount them-- in general the lights should be evenly spaced along the front and side edge of the castle base, shining up on the castle. When you run the spotlight wires, make sure they do not run under any plates-- see the red "X" in the first photo for an example of how not to run the wires.  The wires should run above any plates as shown in the second photo so they do not rub against the base when the castle is upright.

    • Red -wire connecting cable, as shown by the red circle and arrow in the first photo.

    • Black speaker cable, as shown by the blue circle and arrow in the first photo.

    • Note that the red wire shown in the second photo should still be connected to the BRANCH08 master controller after you tested the first section of lights in Step 21.

    • As shown in the second photo, you should still have the three wires connected to the TRUNK08 master controller (USB power, remote control receiver power, and remote control receiver output).

    • If your kit includes color-changing spotlights, you will also have two extra wires extending through the gap in the center of the castle: the black 3-wire cable with the large connector and the red/white/black cable with small connector. These are the wires from the BRANCH17 adapter board for the color-changing spotlights.

    • As shown in the third photo, take the spotlight wire with the small connector and insert it into the plug labeled "SENS1" on the TRUNK08 main controller.

    • Make sure the TRUNK08 master controller is connected to power, and the lights should operate as shown in this video clip.

    • If the staircase lights are not on, you can try pressing and holding the "B" button on the remote control for 2-3 seconds, then releasing. This "long press" on button "B" should turn the interior lights on.

    • All lights from the first test you completed in Step 24 should also continue to operate correctly when you perform this second test.

    • Make sure all eight window lights turn on and off at random intervals. It make take up to 90 seconds for all lights to come on, so be patient and make sure all eight lights are cycling on and off.

    • If your lights do not look and operate as shown in the video, do not continue installation. Double-check all connections, and if lights still do not work, contact us at support@brickstuff.com for further assistance.

  44. Next, you will install the pre-wired lamp post string.  As shown in the first photo, remove the 9 lamp posts from your Hogwarts Castle. The replacement pre-wired lamp post string is contained in Bag 4 (second photo). As shown in the third photo, carefully unpack the lamp post string and lay it flat, making sure there are no tangles in the wires.
