Yes, I would like to take this opportunity to express my thoughts about not only the product I received, but dealing with etrailer. You cannot ask for a better company, not only are they accurate with you process, but they deliver on time. The product is superb and was packaged in a matter where no damage could occur. It is without any reservations that I highly recommend etrailer for your future purchases. 41403

The before and after photos don't do justice to the HUGE difference this LED item made towards the SAFETY of my wife's SUV. Because it is a dark color there have been numerous close calls on being rear-ended. The Trailer hitch cover I had for the past three years had a bulb, but it just was never bright enough to say LOOK OUT! This LED cover is FAR BRIGHTER and offer the additional advantage that it flashes with a left or right turn signal. It also arrived with all of the various parts to customize an easy install for any diameter hitch. My wife and I feel MUCH SAFER having this cover, and the customer service from start to finish was THE BEST! 112651

It is just the right size for my trailor hitch. The reflector technology faked my wife out - she thought the lights were white. We all know they are not. It looks good in the back of my truck. 77172

A nice addition Installation of this item was very easy. It was actually a bit bigger than I'd expected from the photos, but it still looks fine on my 4Runner. The rubber gasket supplied for the 2-inch hitch sleeve to keep it from rattling was not thick enough for the hitch I have. However, I was able to re-purpose one of the smaller gaskets to fill the gap, so now it's fitting just fine. 5198

Square LED Trailer Hitch Brake Light Certainly as good as I could have hoped. Like the fact that it works as a running-light even when I only drive with the side-marker lights and then really shines when I step on the brakes. With my SUV, the factory brake lights are about 4 feet off the ground and then nothing from there to the ground. This Hitch Brake light helps to really enhance the image of the braking action when necessary - especially when you have a turn-signal going while braking as well.4410

Very attractive light that functions as an additional running light, then gets brighter when the brakes are applied. Also, the light blinks when either turn signal is on and the brakes are applied. Works great as an extra measure of safety given all of the distracted drivers on the roads these days.33629

I bought this light to help my visibility and for the nice appearance,it was very easy to install,and adds some beauty to the rear of the truck as well.The construction is hard plastic,you just attach your size of channel to light base with provided screws and place the foam gasket over to fit.You will need an adapter if you only have a 7 pole plug as it requires the flat 4 way plug.4 star rating for material.25964

Product was pretty much as advertised. It suits my needs nicely. It would been a bit better if the part that actually went into the hitch receiver was metal but the plastic shank should suffice. It is big enough and bright enough to get attention and that is what it is all about. Maybe a little overpriced but not extravagantly so.25691

The reflector LED hitch cover is a neat product which really enhances the rear of the vehicle. Some other similar lights which are not as sophisticated have a wire that is too short to reach most receptacles requiring the purchase of an extension cable. This product has a sufficiently long cable that reaches over to the wiring receptacle on my Dodge Ram. I also commend the customer service. I actually received a store display model that had an external battery pack attached. Customer service was right on the ball and gave me instructions on the phone for removing the battery pack.102678


Comments

Just to clarify, this was not a display unit. All of them, shipped new, have the battery powered test function. This is the same package you would find if you found these in a store so you could see it function, without opening it, before buying.

My first thought was, "Wow that is big!". I was surprised by the actual size of this unit. I really expected something small and difficult to see but I was happily proven wrong. Assembly was very simple. Just 4 screws to install. The unit slips into the trailer hitch receiver and gets plugged into your trailer light connector. This also functions to keep the connector clean and secured. Love the extra brake light.84155

This product is much larger than the typical trailer hitch brake light, and some minor assembly is required. There is a certain "bling" appearance to it, as these are red LEDs each in a bright silver reflector. There is a lot of silver reflector to see. Lots of silver. Reflectors. Lots.63063

This product was exactly what I expected. The L.E.D.s are as bright as my cars brake lights if not a little brighter and the installation was quick and simple. Over all it is an excellent product. If you're going to get a trailer hitch cover why not one that serves a dual purpose. 1) keeps the receiver plugged and clean 2) makes the rear end of your car more visible. I ordered over the internet at etrailer.com on the 10th and received it, via USPS on the 14th. Pretty fast service! Buy one you'll like it! Thanks etrailer!23939

  • I went out to the warehouse and pulled an LED Brake and Tail Light Trailer Hitch Cover, # CR-025, and tested it out on a co-workers truck. The turn signals will cause the light to blink, when the brake pedal is pressed. If the brake pedal is not pressed and the turn signal is activated the hitch cover will not blink.

  • Compatibility of LED Hitch Cover # CR-025 with Wiring Harness # 118384 on 2012 Chevy Colorado
  • The Pilot Automotive Square LED Brake and Tail Light Hitch Cover, part # CR-025 would indeed be compatible with the # 118384 on your 2012 Chevy Colorado. Using the turn signals will not cause the hitch cover to blink, unless the brake pedal is pressed at the same time. The cover will light when the head/ running lights are on, and will then brighten when the brakes are applied.

  • Does the LED Brake and Tail Light Trailer Hitch Cover, # CR-025, Blink with Turn Signals
  • Your LED Brake and Tail Light Trailer Hitch Cover, # CR-025, is operating correctly. The brake light signal overrides the turn signal for this application. Normally on a vehicle or trailer that has combined brake and turn signals, the turn signal overrides the brake light on the side that is blinking. For this unit, it is the other way around. Its better that way for a vehicle because a flashing red light at the center of a vehicle does not really indicate anything to the drivers behind you.

  • Options for Supplementing Reverse Lights on a Vehicle
  • The lens of the Pilot Square LED Brake and Tail Light Hitch Cover, # CR-025, is clear, but it only comes with red diodes. It would not provide a white light when reversing. If you are looking to supplement your reverse lights, I have several other options that you may be interested in. If your vehicle has a 7-way trailer connector, then you could use the Blazer Light Buster Backup and Utility Light, # C8020. This light simply plugs into your 7-way trailer socket.
