Video Transcript for Optronics Trailer Lights A70GB Review

Today we'll be reviewing part number A70GB. This is the Optronics Rubber Grommet for 6 1/2 inch Oval Trailer Lights. It is designed for flush mounting those lights. It's going to provide shock protection. This is going to extend the life of your lamp. It's going to feature that open back design that's going to give easy access for wiring.

This does require a 3 wire plug along with the lights to complete installation. Those are going to be sold separately. Couple different plugs that we would recommend is part number A45PB or A47PB. Let's go over the dimensions of the grommet. It's going to give us an overall length of 7 5/8 of an inch. Overall width of 3 3/8 and then an overall depth of 1 1/8.

That's really easy to install, a light I have in right here for our demonstration. Once you have your 6 1/2 inch over light, all you got to do is place it through the grommet. Then just push it into place. The grommet comes up over the light and that's all there is to it. The light is nice and secure in there.

Again, you have the open back for easy access to the wiring. That going to do it for today's review of part number A70GB. This is the Optronics Rubber Grommet for 6 1/2 inch Oval Trailer Lights. .

I purchased these Submersible LED bulbs for my boat trailer for two reasons. The first is so road traffic is aware of my intentions of backing up and the second is to make it easier to back my trailer into my driveway at night. The only thing that I find disappointing about this product, is that the wires are not sealed. You have to plug a pigtail in to power the bulb. Although they say it is watertight, I still plan on sealing the plug with some marine grade silicone sealant. Otherwise I am very satisfied with the way these bulbs light up my path of travel. 376428

Didn't fit the holes in my trailer, although LED lights fit and were same size as original. Measure the cut out in your trailer before ordering. Product was fine but my assumption was it was a standard size. My fault - they will go in the trash now. 79286


Comments
I just had the same experience, needed a thicker or bigger gasket, even trailer manufacturer confirmed this issue, not sure where to get the thicker gasket from? Like You, I thought these were all the same size, the lights to go into the gaskets are...but not the gaskets?

Do you have the part number from the old gasket? Should be molded on it somewhere. That may help shed some light.

  • What are the Hole Dimensions for the #A70GB, Rubber Grommet for 6-1/2 Inch Oval Trailer Light
    I went out into our warehouse and measured one of our Rubber Grommet for 6-1/2 inch Oval Trailer Light, # A70GB, that we have in stock. From the measurements I took, you will have to cut a hole that is 6-11/16 inches long and 2-5/8 inches tall.

  • How to Cut a Grommet Hole for Installation of the Oval Trailer Tail Lights # STL22RB
    The easiest way to cut the oval hole for the Rubber Grommet, # a70gb, in my opinion, would be to use a Light Mounting Bracket for 6-1/2 inch Oval Trailer Lights, BK70BB, as a template and then use a hole saw the correct size to cut a hole on each end of the mounting location. Then, use a angle grinder with cut off wheel or a reciprocating saw with metal cutting blade to cut the straight top and bottom sides of the hole. The correct width for the grommet is 2-5/8 inches, but I have found...

  • Size of Hole Needed to Install PVC Grommet # a70gb in Thicker Mounting Surface
    The ribs of the PVC Grommet for 6-1/2" Oval Trailer Tail Lights # a70gb do push further into the light assembly when you attempt to install on a thicker mounting surface. Since the ribs are on the top and bottom you'd just need to open the hold up to 2-5/8 inches vertically and the same 6-3/4 inches left to right and you'd be good. I attached an install video for this for you to check out as well.

  • How To Remove Trailer Light That Has Been Riveted To Trailer
    The way to remove a riveted item on yoru trailer is by using a drill. You want to use a drill bit that is smaller than the head of the rivet. This will remove the body of the rivet and then you can just easily pop the head of the rivet out without expanding the hole. I have attached a link to the trailer lights we offer. If you have any questions about a specific replacement just let me know.

  • How to Remove Flush Mount Taillights and Grommets in a Square Tube Snowmobile Trailer Frame
    It sounds like your trailer has the 6-1/2 inch Oval stop turn and tail lamps and some side marker lamps that use a rubber grommet like the 6-1/2 inch oval tail lights grommet, # A70GB. Since the area where your lights are mounted is not accessible from the back side, you will need to pry the light out of the front of the grommet with a small screwdriver or other similar tool. If you could find a plastic pry tool that might work better and keep you from damaging the rubber grommet. Another...

  • Tips for Installing 6-1/2 Inch Oval Trailer Lights and Grommet in Trailer Frame
    PVC Grommet # a70gb and the lights that fit with them have to have a tight fit in the trailer. Try to press them into the hole as evenly on both sides as possible. Using some soapy water on the grommet and trailer will help it to install easier. If your trailer takes the same size backup lights you can use # BUL002CB with wiring # A45CB which also fits that same grommet.

  • Rough Opening Dimension and Maximum Panel Thickness for # A70GB Lamp Mounting Grommet
    The # A70GB grommet is meant to fit a 6-11/16 by 2-5/8 inch rough opening. The maximum panel thickness would be right about 3/16 of an inch.

  • Could the Rubber Grommet # A70GB be Installed in 5/16 in Thick Material
    The Rubber Grommet # A70GB should have no problem being used in a material that is 5/16 of an inch in thickness as long as the hole is cut the proper shape. To see the dimensions that the hole will need to be check out the picture I attached.

  • Installing LED Tail Lights and Grommets in Trailer Mounting Hole
    When installing your new lights, you will first install the grommet # A70GB into the hole and then install the light into the grommet. This will ensure the grommet is properly seated in the hole and the light will be a snug fit. I've attached a video installation to further assist.

  • Will Gravel Roads Damage the Back Up Light # BUL10CB Mounted on a Boat Trailer
    As long as you mount the backup light part # BUL10CB using the grommet part # A70GB and bracket part # BK70BB in such a way that it would not be directly behind the tires of the trailer you really shouldn't have a problem with debris...unless you drive like the guys on Dukes of Hazzard. I don't think a box to protect the lights would be necessary. You would just need to pick a good location for the lights and you would be fine. We are in Wentzville, MO which is about 45 minutes west...

  • Replacement Amber Trailer Light for GloBrite 1250
    We do not carry the Glo-Brite brand of trailer light (and I believe they are no longer in business) but we do have a replacement for the model 1250. My research indicates this amber lens light measures 6-1/2-inches x 2-5/16-inches, like the part # ST75AB and the LED version # STL75AB. The lights mount using grommet # A70GB as they are recessed mount and not surface mount.

  • Which Oval LED Trailer Tail Light is Brightest?
    It is difficult to compare the brightness on the different LED oval tail lights. Neither Bargman nor Optronics share lumen ratings for their tail lights. So, when comparing the Bargman 48 Diode Tail Light # 47-06-404 with the Optronics 22 Diode # STL111RB, or the Optronics 10 Diode # STL72RB, you won't notice a huge difference with the naked eye. But, in most cases, the more diodes there are in an LED light, the brighter it will be. This is not always the case, but all LED tail lights...

    The Optronics LED Trailer Tail light - Stop, Tail, Turn - Submersible - 10 Diodes - Red Lens # STL72RB will use the PVC Grommet for 6-1/2" Oval Trailer Tail Lights # A70GB for mounting. With this combination the opening you need to cut is a 6-11/16" long x 2-5/8" wide hole like you can find on the mounting bracket # BK70BB. You may want to get the bracket as a stencil to give you the perfect fit. You will also need the wiring pigtail # A45PB for each light. The kit you mentioned #...

  • Comparing Brightness Ratings of Optronics LED Tail Lights
    The Optronics LED Backup Light # BUL22CB is brighter than backup light # BUL10CB although I would not describe it as significant, though that can be subjective. Optronics measures the brightness of their lights using candelas and the # BUL10CB has a candela rating of 125, while the # BUL22CB has a candela rating of 160. There is also the backup light # BUL52CB which has a candela rating of 175. The reason I would not classify the brightness as significantly higher is because these...

For your 2-1/2" round clearance light we have the Peterson Piranha LED Light # 162R with the wiring and grommet as part # 162-18K. We have had people ask about your PM 421 light before and have found that the Optronics # STL22RB with the grommet # a70gb are perfect LED replacements. If you need new pigtail wiring for these you can use part # A45PB or the angled part...

  • Oval LED Trailer Tail and Backup Light that Mounts with a Grommet
    The closest match would be # STL211RB. It doesn't have a clear lens or Glo feature though. The grommet for this light is # A70GB and you would need pigtails # A47PB and # A49PB to plug into the back of it.

    Yes, the connection on the Micro-Flex Trailer Tail Light - Stop, Tail, Turn - LED light, part # STL22RB, is compatible with the PM 421 lights that you currently have on your Silver Star horse trailer. You will not need a new pigtail since it uses the same pigtail. However if you do need to replace a pigtail we have the 90 degree option, part # A47PB, and the regular option, part # A45PB. We also carry a replacement grommet if you need that as well, this would be part # A70GB but if yours...

  • What is the Candela Output of Optronics 6-1/2 Inch Incandescent and LED Tail Lights?
    I do recommend you move to LED lights as they are going to last much longer than the incandescent lights on your horse trailer. As far as light output, Optronics generally measures their lights in candelas instead of lumens though at a distance of 1 foot candela is equal to lumens so you should have a good idea of how bright the lights are. I contacted Optronics and the representative was able to give me the candelas of each of the lights you were asking about. The incandescent # BU70CB...

    The Command 003-5400 light doesn't give me specific dimensions. Base on some research it appears the Optronics # STL72RB may be a replacement option. I've attached the measurements for this light to assist. The Optronics # STL22RB is a similar light with overall dimensions of 6-1/2" long x 2-5/16" tall x 2-1/4" thick. This light uses grommet # A70GB for flush mount as well so even though they are different they mount in the same way. If you can give me dimensions and a photo of the...

  • Replacement LED Tail Light for Trucklite Model 60
    Based on the dimensions for the Truck Lite Model 60 that you have it matches the Optronics 10-LED Trailer Tail Light # STL72RB so this light will work as a replacement for you. The 48-LED version # STL70RB that you referenced is the same size and will work too. For a grommet you would need the part # A70GB and then for a harness part # A45PB.

  • How to Remove Grommet-Mounted Tail Light for Bulb Replacement
    Usually lights that mount using a rubber grommet will need to be popped-out of the grommet to give you access to the lens for removing that part to allow for bulb replacement. You can push the light out of the grommet by moving it out from the grommet, toward you as you look at it. For instance, the red oval light # ST70RB from Optronics uses grommet # A70GB for installation. This light is a exact replacement for Truck Lite part 60202R and others as listed on the linked page.

It works with the PVC Grommet for 6-1/2" Oval Trailer Tail Lights # A70GB. This light will use the standard 3 prong plug that if you need a replacement is # A45PB or # A47PB for the 90 degree connector.
