Install inline between the power source and the lights.
The dimmer must be connected to - ground.
The Load must have a "Floating Ground", as shown in wiring diagram below.

NOTE: ISSUE REGARDING BI-COLOR LED BULBS

The dimmer will dim both colors in our bi-color bulbs. However, the dimmer likely will interfere with the color changing. To change color, you need to toggle a switch off and back on. The dimmer, however, ramps the power more slowly, and you may get stuck with only white light. 

The only remedy we know of is to put a switch inline with the dimmer. Use the dimmer for dimming. Use the switch for color changing. The bulb should initially illuminate in the secondary color (i.e. red or blue). When the switch is toggled, it should turn to white. To return to the secondary color, you need to turn the switch off for typically 4 to 7 seconds, then turn back on.

If you have an existing wall switch, perhaps you can keep it and add the dimmer. Otherwise, we do offer a switch here: 12 volt wall switch.
