You can barely tell from the photo, but I left a button of urethane in the last LED that had the strip of urethane pulled away. That little bit is enough to allow the LED to operate. Pull it out and it stops working. It seems the urethane itself has electrical properties to make the LED work, but perhaps it's just putting pressure on the PN junction?
