1. A method of packaging a lighting unit comprising a first component having a first elongate member and a second component that is physically separate from the first component, the second component having a second elongate member, the method comprising:
connecting the first elongate member of the first component to the second elongate member of the second component with a resilient binding element comprising a first ring adapted to receive and hold the first elongate member at a first longitudinal location thereof, the first ring having an inner circumference that is less than an outer circumference of the first elongate member, the resilient binding element further comprising a second ring adjoining the first ring and adapted to receive and hold the second elongate member at a first longitudinal location thereof, the binding element at least partially inhibiting the first and second components from being longitudinally moved relative to each other;
inserting the first elongate member into a first aperture in a carrier base sized and shaped to receive the first elongate member at a second longitudinal location of the first elongate member, wherein the second longitudinal location of the first elongate member is spaced a distance from the first longitudinal location; and
inserting the second elongate member into a second aperture in the carrier base sized and shaped to receive the second elongate member at a second longitudinal location of the second elongate member, wherein the second longitudinal location of the second elongate member is spaced the distance from the first longitudinal location.
