Optronics Tow Bar Wiring - TL21RK

Get lights for towing your vehicle without splicing into its wiring. Magnetic light kit provides a pair of stop, turn, and tail lights. Mounts using large, heavy-duty magnets for increased stability. Plugs in at rear of your motor home.

    • Can also be used as trailer lights
  • 2 Red lights act as brake, tail, and turn signal lights
  • Magnetic bases let you easily mount lights on trunk or roof of your car
    • Large, heavy-duty magnets provide excellent stability
  • Wishbone-style wiring harness can be easily routed beneath car
  • 4-Pole flat connector on harness is designed to hook up to your RV's 4-way trailer connector
  • Separate, 3' long harness with 4-way can be wired into tow vehicle or RV if no trailer connector is present
    • Includes quick-splice connectors for simple installation
  • Department of Transportation compliant

  • Bulb type: 2057 double filament
  • 3-Year limited warranty on housing and wiring only


A towed car is required by law to have functional brake and signal lights that illuminate at the same time as the brake and signal lights on the RV that is towing it. Most wiring kits require you to splice into your vehicle's electrical system to install diodes, but doing this can void your manufacturer's warranty. You also run the risk of making a mistake during installation that could result in potentially damaging electrical feedback. Magnetic tow lights eliminate this problem because they bypass your car's electrical system entirely and leave your wiring intact. Just mount the lights on your vehicle's trunk or roof with the heavy-duty magnetic bases. Then run the wiring harness up to the front of your towed car, across your tow bar, and then connect it to the 4-way flat on your motor home or tow vehicle. If your tow vehicle doesn't have a 4-way, an adapter is required.


This kit includes a 20' long wishbone-style wiring harness with a 4-way flat connector on the end. A separate 3' wiring harness with a 4-way plug can be used to install a 4-way on your tow vehicle or RV if it does not already have a trailer connector. Quick-splice connectors are included if needed. A 4-1/2' long harness connects both lights, giving you enough slack to position the lights where you want them.

Video Transcript for Optronics Trailer Lights TL21RK Review

Today, we're going to review Part Number TL21RK. These are the Optronics Magnetic Mount Stop, Turn and Tail Towing Light Kit with the 20-foot Wiring Harness. This is a temporary magnetic towing light kit that includes the two stop and turn tail lights, the 20-foot trailer wiring harness and a stand-along three foot long four way vehicle-end connector, in case your vehicle doesnt have one. It comes with the quick connectors to attach the four-way to the vehicle if needed in the instructions. This does come with a limited three year warranty. Now, that warranty does exclude the bulbs.

It is magnetic mount, so you can just attach this to, if youre towing a vehicle, if youtr flat-towing the vehicle and you dont do it very much and you just need to use the lights a few times, you can use this magnetic mount. You can use it on the trailer if you have a trailer that doesnt have lights and you might need to use it at night. Basically, this magnetic mount, I have a piece of metal here. You can see it will attach to it and stays pretty firm to it. Its got a good pull to it, pretty hard to detach it.

You just put one of these on each side. The cord here is about four-foot, so they will spread out four-foot width. Now, I do want to show this does come with this 20-foot wiring harness. It has a trailer connector that where you plug into the vehicle-end four-way if your vehicle has one or if you attach this one to it. To give example of the brightness of the lights, I have a four-way vehicle-end connector attached to a power source.

Im going to give you an idea. Ill plug this in; we turn on the tail lights. This is what the tail lights would look like. Now, Im going turn off the overhead lights to give you an idea how bright they are in somewhat darkness. Then if you apply the brakes, as you can see, thats with the brakes and if we do a turn signal, I want to give you an idea of just the turn signal.

Thats how the turn signal would look like. Now, well go ahead and turn off or turn back on the overhead lights. That should do it for the review of the Part Number TL21RK. This is the Optronics Magnetic Mount Stop, Turn and Tail Towing Light Kit with the 20-foot Wiring Harness.

I am using these for added visibility on the back of a large bike rack that pretty much stays on the car all the time. I do not suggest using the magnets as the only form of attachment as they are not strong enough to keep the lights attached when going over bumps. I zip-tied them to the frame of the bike rack. At first, I had them sticking out from the bottom of the rack, and they were fine until I went up a steep hill and one of the lights got knocked off on the road. These lights are extremely well-built because instead of snapping the light, the rather large zip-ties broke. The light still works great after the incident. I now have them sticking out the sides to give more ground clearance, and they seem to be doing fine. For my application, I had to replace the wire between the lights with a longer one, but that was not difficult and will not be necessary in a typical application. At least the lights are easy to disassemble to access the wiring. The only way these could be improved would be to add strong neodymium magnets and to make the red lenses screw on (instead of snapping on) for easier access to the bulbs for replacement. Otherwise, a perfect product. For the record, I did not need to use the included vehicle wiring harness or splice connectors, since my application required an electronic light controller. 53035

I purchased a Curt hitch for my 09 CRV. I also bought a wiring harness and a set of magnetic lights for attachment to vehicles. I was able to install the hitch in less than an hour. It took me 30 minutes to connect the wiring. The lights are very simple to connect and only hook up one way. The instructions included links to videos that made the job a snap. The instructions said to put the wiring inside the car by the spare tire when not in use to preserve the connector. what a great suggestion! I did not put a single mark on the car and the hitch looks great. 29217

Perfect, just what we needed to get our trailer home from storage so I could work on the finding the root cause for the failure of the permanent trailer lights. Now that the permanent lights have been fixed, the temporary magnetic lights are stored with the trailer sort of like a spare tire, knowing how fiddly trailer wiring can sometimes be. It's worth the small investment for the extra measure of safety in case the permanent trailer lights fail again far from home. 82108

works great for towing my jeep. just plug the four flat into the factory trailer wiring on the tow vehicle, set the lights on the bumper and they work perfect. the magnets are strong but the thicker the metal they are on the better they hold. steel on my bumper is thick enough for a strong hold but I tried thinner metal and the hold is weaker so you may need to add some straps 211070

by: Silver Bullet06/20/2015


Speed of delivery was great and the product was exactly what I expected. Surprisingly, the magnets hold really well, I was concerned the lights might fall off when I went over a large bump. The wiring was smaller/thinner grade than the wiring in my vehicle, but that did not present any issues. All in all, this was worth the small investment. Quick and easy. 205882

Do you have a question about this Tow Bar Wiring?


  • Needed Items for Flat Towing 2012 Honda Fit
  • For starters, you will need a tow bar and base plates. The tow bar mounts into the receiver on your Winnebago, and would use the base plates that permanently attach to the Honda Fit as an attachment point. I would recommend the Roadmaster Falcon 2 Tow Bar, part # RM-520. The Falcon 2 is our best seller, and is easy to operate. The vehicle-specific base plate kit is part # 521190-1. I will link you to our video showing this kit being installed on a 2010 Honda Fit. Next, you will need...

For base plates, I recommend a Blue Ox Base Plate Kit. If your Civic is a Hybrid, you will want to use # BX2236. If your Civic is a standard model, not SI, SIR, or Hybrid, you will want to use # BX2234. I recommend the Blue Ox Alpha Tow Bar # BX7365 to use with the Blue Ox baseplates. The Alpha tow...

The steering column should be unlocked by turning the ignition key to the OFF position, which is the next position from LOCK. The transmission should be in neutral.
