Trailer light relocation brackets provide an easy way to reposition your trailer's tail lights. Typically mounted to post-style boat guides, these brackets help to keep the tail lights out of the water when you are loading or unloading your boat. To attach a bracket around the boat guide upright, you will need to drill holes. One end clamps around the post and secures with a bolt. Holes on the other end of the bracket allow for easy mounting of surface-mount lights and leave room for wires.

Video Transcript for CE Smith Boat Trailer Parts CE27650A Review

Speaker 1: Today we're taking a look at the CE Smith mounting brackets for post-style boat trailer guide-ons. Heavy duty brackets are designed to attach boat trailer lights to 40-inch and 60-inch tall post-style guides. Now this kit, once it's installed, is designed to keep your lights up out of the water so they don't get cracked during loading or unloading. A lot of times when you're backing down the boat ramp, your license plate, your taillights, all that kind of stuff will drag, or if you back down the boat ramp and you get onto the water, you don't know what's under there. So these simply keep the lights out of the water. It's gonna keep your lights protected so you're not constantly having to replace the taillights on your trailer.They extend the lights 7 1/2 inches out away from each post.

They're constructed of sturdy, galvanized steel to resist rust and corrosion, and it does come with the necessary mounting hardware. This is what it comes with. So you get the two brackets, you get the necessary wiring so you can tie in to the trailer wiring on your trailer, you get a couple zip ties to secure the wiring, and you get the hardware needed. You get the ring terminals needed as well as the wiring connectors.The part's made in the USA. It does come with some nice, detailed installation instructions.

So you can see right there how they want you to install it. You can drill a hole through the post; that way you can bring your wiring out, get your connectors on there, your license plate . or excuse me, your taillight would attach right here. These attachment holes are separated on center by two inches.Now you'll notice that it comes with four bolts. One would be designed to attach the bracket to the actual post.

The other one gets installed at the bottom of the post if your post rotates. Now, if your post rotates on the guide-on, you don't want it to, because that means that your light will have the ability to rotate, so they include hardware; that way you can run a bolt through there, put a locking nut on the other side, and keep your PVC posts from rotating. That way the taillights stay in the direction that they're supposed to be pointing.So everything you need for your installation is included. Does not come with taillights, so just keep that in mind. These are designed to accept surface-mount taillights with the mounting posts.

Again, the mount holes on the brackets are separated on two-inch centers, and these are designed to install on two-inch round guide-ons. Both brackets are included, and last thing I wanna mention is just be sure to check with your state Department of Transportation for restrictions regarding the maximum trailer width, because again, these are gonna extend your trailer lights 7 1/2 inches out away from each post.That's gonna do it for today's look at the CE Smith light mounting brackets for post-style boat trailer guide-ons.

You should change how you attach the ground wires to the trailer. Instead of drilling holes in the trailer you should provide two ring terminals for the ground leads. The ring terminals would be attached to your bracket U bolts on either side of the trailer. Much easier and cleaner way to do it. I tried it and it works great. Picture attached! 562814

I loved this product, everything came out great! I had 1" 1/2 guides and i was a little nervous about it fitting, However , I bent the brackets closer with a vise and had no problem drilling hole for light bracket. I also did a 90' degree bend so they did not stick out all the way out ! Most of the wiring was already set up, but i did have to set a white ground wire to trailer/lights) for better grounding. I had a few questions and service with return e-mails were great! Thanks George and etrailer for a super product! No more Seawater corrosion on lights! Yahoo 560591

This is a great add on to the guides. Keeps lights and plate out of the water. I did all my wiring so it was just under the cap with heat shrink connectors. This will mean less wiring and light repairs. 504028

I ordered this item online , and it arrived at my house two days later. I installed the light mounting kit (in conjunction with the CE Smith guide-ons CE27620) on my CE Smith 48810 trailer the next day. Easy peasy! The fit was good, the installation was easy, and I'm sure their functionality will be superb. Very pleased with etrailer's service -- the website has a world of great information and videos. Thank you! 501636

Unique and will suit my purpose but would be better if could be used as is for rectangular lights. Needs to be slightly large but I will make it work. Great concept! 207224

Very happy with the product. Delivery was fast. Installed and now my trailer lights will never see salt water again (unless I end up having a major oops moment). Only issue is in order to remove the lights from the bottom of the trailer and relocate them to the guide poles you have to make 4 wire splices on each side and not enough wire splices come in the package. If you think about it you must first cut the wires where the lights are attached to the trailer and then splice the extention wires at this point using two of the wire connectors and then attached the wires to the light up on the guide poles using two more wire connectors. Hence 4 connectors on each side. Other than that I'm very happy with this product. 192458

  • How to Install the CE Smith Post-Style Guide-Ons on a Malone MicroSport Trailer
  • I have two options that will allow you to install the CE Smith Post-Style Guide-Ons for Boat Trailers part # CE27620 on your Malone MicroSport Trailer part # MPG460G.

The other option I have for you would be to relocate the taillights. Once the taillights are removed (2 bolts), you can then install the guide...
