It looks to be a good product. I just wish there was some instructions on how to put this on a trailer. It looks simple enough for veteran trailer owners but, us newbies gotta learn on the fly. 120557


It does its Magic!:-. Bright and is still luminous after a year. I highly recommend the LEDs.

Exceptional and inexpensive LED-lit license plate mount/bracket. I ordered this item (online) on a Sunday, and received a human confirmation e-mail that evening! Item was shipped the next day (Monday). Very Easy installation. Photos (3) attached. If you need an illuminated license plate bracket, BUY THIS ONE! 7513


by: John K10/25/2013

This bracket fit my project boat trailer to a "Tee"...so much so, that I bought another one for my other boat trailer... 105204


Both boat trailer lights are working great...best lights I had on any boat trailer

Just wanted to tell you that I have finally installed the product I ordered from etrailer.com, and I must say that it is by far the best product I have ever used. They are bright, and very visible even during daytime. Attached is the finished product that I installed on my travel trailer. I hope that other consumer like me will find this very helpful to buy from etrailer.com. 33120


by: RSV03/27/2015

As is, this is OK. The LED light is EXCELLENT. It's the bracket that leaves much to be desired if aesthetics are important to your application. Reason for this comment is that the mounting holes for the bracket itself are OK, but the molded-in holes for the light mounting are in the generic "cluster" pattern to fit several styles of light because you can also buy just this bracket itself. So, the LED light only just partially covers some of the mounting holes and the result makes it look like just a tacked-on afterthought. Otherwise, it's functionally just fine. 181168


by: Harvey L.05/11/2011

I ordered the LED License plate light/bracket to replace an old broken one on my 1984 13' Scamp camp trailer. The renovation of my trailer is not yet complete but the new light/bracket along with the new LED tail/signal/brake lights also from etrailer, will make the old camper look like new from the rear. The composite, non-metal construction should insure long life that is free from rust, & the LED lights will 'draw' less energy while lasting much longer than incandescent. 13443


by: Hannibal Smith06/23/2015

Good price, quick service. I like the semi soft flexible plastic material of the assembly. The license plate bolt hole pattern is such that a small plate will fit. But the LED light fixture seems a bit flimsy. I guess it's OK that the light fixture is not totally sealed because it houses LEDs, not bayonet incandescent bulbs that can corrode over time. Overall, I give it an 7.5 out of 10. 206772


by: Bob M.10/03/2014

The help I got was really great. The people were very polite and accommodating. I received the order a day earlier than stated, The license plate bracket is of good quality and will suffice in every way. Thank you for your promptness on this order. 154315

Fantastic product, had it installed in a few minutes after it's arrival! Very happy with it and the staff at Etrailer.com. Excellent communication and fast shipping. We will definetly be a repeat customer down the road someday. 187148

The license plate bracket LPL55CB looks good and will handle the job it is intended for. The service was great, people were polite and helpful. I would reccomend that etrailer be use for your ordering. They do it right. 153537


by: Steve E03/18/2011

Excellent bracket for your trailer licence plate. This is made of thick, sturdy plastic with a few different holes for mounting available. The LED light is very bright and draws very little current from your vehicle. 9780


by: John S.06/05/2013

(have been) purchasing the LED-style of lights as I replace them on a 10+-yr old cargo hauler to overall reduce amp. load. Works as expected, but I had to modify it to make it work with what I have. 83432


by: Joel03/13/2013

Received the license plate light in good order and is exactly what I wanted. I am using it on a utility trailer to upgrade the lighting and it brings the total lighting group up to modern day specs. 70426


by: H.D.05/28/2015

Not quite as heavy duty as I'd hoped for, but it should be plenty sturdy for what it is used for. I haven't had the chance to see how bright it is at night, but I'm sure it will be plenty bright. 198345


by: Jesse Jones12/11/2010

Great Product This product is a great product for my trailer.I got the electric brakes and hubs and other parts.I can say that i got the correct parts and great service with fast shipping.Thanks 4004

Just what I needed to relocate the license plate on my trailer. Installation was pretty straight forward. Does an excellent job of lighting the license plate at night. 19888


by: Ryan A01/08/2014

Product came in and looked decent. A little cheaper feel to it, but not bad for the price. Got it wired up and only 2 of the 5 LED lights worked, no bueno. 112300


Optronics covers the LEDs in this light with a Lifetime Warranty. We will be in touch to get the warranty claim with Optronics taken care of.

Would like to see same product with a bit more robust (Thicker/Stiffer) plate attachment section. 30928

Nice bright LED's, but the bracket is flimsy plastic. Should work okay for a couple of years. 189000

Good value for the money but I would suggest spending a little extra for a sturdier part. 151588

Do you have a question about this Trailer Light?

  • Recommendation To Relocate License Plate When Using Tow Ready Hitch Cargo Carrier, # 63153
  • On the Tow Ready Hitch Cargo Carrier, # 63153, the license plate can be mounted to the back of the cargo carrier by drilling two holes of 1/4 inch or less and attaching the plate with two screws. I also have a Optronics License Plate Holder, # LP35BB, that you could use. It mounts by one screw in the center and then the license plate attaches to the holder. If you have the Optional Light Kit, # 20174, on your cargo carrier you could use the Optronics License Plate Light And Bracket,...

  • Does a License Plate Need to be Moved When Using a Trailer Hitch Mount Cargo Carrier
  • The legality of an obscured rear license plate varies from state to state. If you want to heed the letter of the law, the plate can be relocated to the rear of the cargo carrier. We sell quite a few cargo carriers, and to be honest, it is really not that much of an issue. You could zip tie the plate to your carrier, or use a bracket with a light like part # LPL55CB (In most states, the rear license plate is required to be lit after dark). If your vehicle has a trailer connector,...

  • How to Wire the LED Trailer License-Plate Light # LPL55CB
  • You will need to use a quick splice, item # 804C, and splice the black wire from the LED Trailer License-Plate Light, item # LPL55CB, into the tail light wire on your trailer. The tail light wire is normally the brown wire, but you should use a circuit tester, item # 3808 if needed, to be sure you are splicing into the correct wire. You will then need to attach the white wire to ground, usually the trailer frame or the white wire coming from the trailer connector. Once wired the license...

  • License Plate Mounting Bracket With LED Light for a Hitch Mounted Cargo Carrier
  • One license plate bracket with an LED light that may work for you is the Optronics LED Trailer License Plate Light with Mounting Bracket, # LPL55CB. At this time there are no license plate brackets with lights that are specifically designed to work with hitch mounted cargo carriers, but this bracket provides attachment points for a license plate. You will just want to find a way to attach the bracket to the cargo carrier. In most cases, the bracket is screwed directly to the top rail...

We do have a solution for you though. You could install the Bargman lights that you like and then install an LED license plate light like the LED Heavy Duty Trailer License Plate Light, # LPL41CB, or the LED Mini Trailer License Plate Light, # LPL31CB, above your license plate.

I have attached a link to our product page for license plate lights.

There are different opinions about mixing LED and incandescent lights on the same circuit. We have had customers that wire them in the...

  • Recommended Light Kits and License Plate Bracket with Lights for Cargo Carriers
  • In instances when the tail lights are obscured by anything placed on the carrier, we recommend using a light kit. We offer part # 20174 which works with several of our most popular cargo carriers such as part # 40101, #59502, #59507, #63153 and #63155. We also offer light kit part # 52014 which works with cargo carriers like part # 52017 and # 52018. As far as the license plate goes, a bracket and light combo like part # LPL55CB could be used. The light could be wired into the running...

  • What Bolts to Use to Secure a License Plate to a LED Trailer License-Plate # LPL55CB

  • Is the LED License Plate Light and Bracket, Part Number LPL55CB Constructed of Metal or Plastic?

  • Relocating License Plate and Bracket on a Utility Trailer
  • I recommend using something like and L-bracket, such as # CE26098G, that you can attach to the top rail near the end of the trailer. Then you can attach a bracket such as # LPL55CB (may have to do some drilling/modify the L-bracket). Then you can ground the license plate bracket to the nearby frame of the trailer and the power wire to the running light circuit. The wiring can be run along the frame to the nearest tail light for the power wire. You can use wire ties or even metal loom...

This will give you a 4-way with a running light circuit that you could use to power a light for the license plate that would only come on when your headlights are on. You will then have to mount a lighted license plate bracket on your cargo carrier like the part # LPL55CB. You will run the black...

  • Replacement LED Light Recommendations For Trailer
  • For a grommet mount red 2 inch clearance light I recommend part # MCL55R1224B. This light uses a 2-wire pigtail, part # A46PB for installation. If you need amber, you would order part # MCL55A1224B. Installed without a grommet, these lights measure 2 inches diameter x 1 inch deep. You can use the 2 inch grommet part # A54GB for this light for a flush mount. It would require a 2-5/16 inch mounting hole. The tail lights I recommend are the Optronics GLOLight LED Stop/Turn/Tail Light,...

  • How to Wire a License Plate Bracket with a Light on a Dune Buggy
  • License plate lights are typically wired to the running light circuit. You should have no problem wiring your plate light in with your existing tail lights. I recommend using solder, # FL0803484, and a soldering iron for these connections, but a quick splice, # 564 will work if you do not have access to a soldering iron. A circuit tester, # 3808, will be needed to locate the running light circuit on the dune buggy. Typically it is easiest to find this circuit at the rear of the tail lights. We...

  • License Plate Location on Rola Enclosed Cargo Carrier with Tray Folded Up
  • That is an interesting issue. What I would do is use a secondary bracket for the plate, # LP15SB. You could secure it to the underside of the tray so when folded up you will have a bracket there. Or you could attach a bracket with a light, # LPL55CB, and splice the light into the same wire used for the light on your Rola carrier. A quick and dirty solution would be to bungee cord it to the carrier with some bungees like # 3044DAT. That may not be pretty but it would work.

  • LED Light on a license Plate Bracket Flashes and Will Not Stay On

  • Can Optronics LED Trailer License-Plate Light # LPL55CB Be Mounted Upside Down
  • The Optronics LED Trailer License-Plate Light, part # LPL55CB, could be mounted upside down but the case that covers the light is designed to protect the light from the elements with it mounted above the license plate. The case is solid on top to allow water to run off of the light fixture and the clear lens has a drain hole in it to allow any moisture on the inside of the lens to drain out. If you install the light upside down it would allow the chance of more water to go inside the...
