Just what I needed to add tail lights on my T2 Pro bike rack for added safety and peace of mind.

Used 2 of these to add a light kit to my Thule T-2 receiver bike hitch. East to mount and wire with optional lens kit. Adds extra safety with 2 29 inch bike hanging out the back.

Apparently the website is very confusing. I ordered 2 mounting brackets and the customer rep said I ordered 3. I also ordered 2 lights and the rep said I only ordered 1. I am educated enough to know how to order items. I also spoke to another rep before my order was shipped. If this was something I did then I will blame it on a confusing website.

Attaced trailer lights to a Thurle hitch, 2bike platform. When the plateform is lowered to the loaded position the lights are located on the bottom of the rearmost horizontal bar. The light on the left is attached to the hex bolt at the end of th bar and rhe other end of the mounting bracket is held to the bar by a zip tie which runs through the hole at that end of the bracket. On the right side There are 4hex bolts on that part of the bar. The bracket holes don’t match up to those bolts. I used the bolt closer to the center and furthest to the rear and drilled a new hole in the bracket to match the bolt in that line furthest to the end. Both lights are secure and as the picture shows helps to define the protrsion of the rack and hopefully will protect from a rearend crash.

:I have a hitch platform bike rack, With bikes on the rack, particularly when they are covered, the car tail lights are not seen. I applied the Rola LED Light Kit for Railed Cargo Carriers to the Platform bike rack so that Tail lights, turn signals and brake could be visible. This adds Safety to driving as well as protection for the bikes. Arthur D., the etrailer representative I spoke with, was well versed in etrailer products and was extremely helpful in getting my order organized and shipped. I was completely satisfied with my interaction with Arthur D and the company.

A friend had this style on his trailer and they seemed to be trouble free, I could not buy these local for the price etrailer offers. So I bought light, gromet, and pig tail. Very nice and easy to mount.

The Brackets are made of rigid, high quality steel, with a nice powder coated finish. We used these brackets to add newer style lights to an old trailer. These saved us lots of machining and cutting time.

All products bought from etrailer.com have been as advertised. All products purchased are excellent. Products purchased are, Blue ox tow receiver, 6 inch drop/rise. A very strong, well made product. Also, a set of LED tow lights, for my scooter carrier. A 'Quiet hitch lock', which ensures no movement in my hitch at all. Lastly, a hitch plug, a little bit of 'whimsy', many thanks to the reps., at etrailer.com, their knowledge and advice has been invaluable.

Exactly what I was looking for these are sturdy enough to attach with magnets as temporary towing lights for my historic vehicle. Thanks

by:

Great value and seemingly good quality. I opted to add stop lights with components reviewed on etrailer site. LED wiring with light kit is very problematic. Had to purchase a 12” 4 way extender. No way to do a neat, professional install due to the wire harness. Oh well, it’s installed. I would still do it again but suggest product management take control. . Love etrailer service.

Good fit and plenty of holes for vaious mounting applications. I welded mine on and the material is thick enough to be welded and hold its structural integrity mounted in any position.

First...I have used trailer hitches and other products from etrailer before...all worked and were relatively easy to install for a 74 year old, falling apart, fat boy. I have no real complaints toward etrailer or those/this product. I called before ordering this oval light mount to be sure it would fit the LED trailer lights I have and was assured all 4 holes lined up perfectly. My lights looked like the 10 led STL72R, but the mount had only two holes and only 1 hole lined up(see pictures)...the other was off by ~14" to 3/8". In all fairness I don't know how old my lights are or who made them...nor do I know which light was used as a model or by whom at etrailer... It is NOT a big problem and easily fixed and the mount is usable as is just by drilling an upper mounting hole and/or elongating the mount holes on both the light and mount and using washers to squeeze the flanges together. A person can always hope that pieces and parts will fit perfectly but that isn't the usual happening especially with parts made who knows how many years apart and by how? many manufacturers. I am satisfied. This assembly will be mounted on a "trunk mount" attached to my Voyager Trike kit on my 2002 Moto Guzzi California Special Sport

fit the back up light perfectly as advertised. nice universal mount, mounts anywhere you can drill a hole or two.



- BK70BB
by:

Not sure how these brackets wouldn't be 5 stars. Seemed to be pretty stout so shouldn't wiggle or bend. It took me about 20 minutes to mark/drill holes and bolted them into the trailer frame using 1/4" bolts with fender washers and nyloc nuts. Next time I have to replace the wood decking, I'll probably weld them in place



- BK70BB
by:

Exactly what I needed for my trailer. Make sure the lights are pushed into their designed location properly. I lost a light because it wasn't seated properly. The metal is thick enough to take a really good weld.



- BK70BB
by:

The lights are great, however, you should probably sell as a kit to include the mounting brackets and wiring harness. I had to make a second order to complete the installation on my truck.

I mounted a pair of these 98174LED lights to my Hollywood Racks Hitch Bike Rack- HR1450Z-E. They work great. It's nice to have the added protection of having an extra set of brake/tail lights when my mounted electric bikes cover and hide my Ford Escape tail lights.

  • Bracket and Grommet for Optronics Light STL72RB
    There is a way to use the bracket with a light that is just like the Optronics LED Trailer Tail Light # STL78RB although this particular light has a built-in flange and would not work with a bracket. If you take a look at the accompanying photo you can see how this light is designed to install. Instead you can use Optronics LED Trailer Tail Light # STL72RB which is the same light without the built-in flange and mount it with Grommet # A70GB and Bracket # BK70BB. I have added links...

  • How to Install Tail Light and Grommet into Trailer Light Mounting Bracket # BK70BB
    I went out to the warehouse and pulled a # BK70BB bracket, a 6 inch oval tail light and the A70GB grommet. I found that it is much easier to install everything if you push the grommet fully into the bracket until it is fully seated and then push the light into the grommet until it bottoms out. At that point, you will have a fit tight enough that the lamp is securely held in place. Make sure the grommet is pushed FULLY into place before inserting the lamp.

  • Adding LED Lights To A Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE 4
    We have definitely seen customers do this and modify racks like the EasyFold # TH903202 before using the LED kit part # 98174LED and the brackets # BK70BB to mount. You will also need some self-tapping screws # FA1131822, or drill and use the hardware of your choice to mount the brackets. Doing modifications on the Sport Rider SE 4 # HR1400Z can cause a voiding of the warranty so that's worth checking out with Hollywood Racks before taking this on. Another option to consider that...

  • Testing Trailer Wiring Circuits to Determine what Wires Run to Running Light Circuit
    You are going to need to verify what the circuit each of the wires you have on your trailer carries first since not all of the wire colors you mentioned are standard. Use a circuit tester like part # PTW2993 to test them while the different taillight functions are applied. The circuit that is hot when the running lights of the vehicle are on is the circuit to use for the running lights. I attached a help article that has standard trailer wiring diagrams for you to check out as well.

  • Brackets and Grommets for Boat Trailer Lights
    I've linked to a list of our trailer light mounting grommets and brackets. Which one you choose will depend on the dimensions of your light. For example, the Optronics Mounting Bracket, part # BK70BB, will mount 6-1/2" oval lights and requires a grommet, part # A70GB, to complete installation. It mounts on 6-1/4" centers, so the mounting area needed can play a part, too. I've linked to video reviews of both of these in the off chance that this is what you need. If you tell me your...

For the red led lights I recommend the Optronics LED Trailer Tail Light - Stop, Tail, Turn - Submersible - 10 Diodes - Red Lens # STL72RB with wiring pigtail # A47PB.

  • Can Tail Lights be Installed on Kuat Sherpa 2.0
    Thank you for the purchase of the Kuat Sherpa 2.0 # SH22B. Since your right turn signal is being obscured you could very possibly use the Thinline LED Trailer Tail Light # STL59RB with a 4-Way pigtail like part # HM38134 but I have a different recommendation for you that I believe is a bit simpler to install and will look better since that strip can only carry one turn signal function.

    I'm not 100 percent sure what you are referring to in regards to the wire, but it sounds like maybe you need to know the functions of the pigtail harness that is needed for the Optronics LED Trailer Tail Light # STL72RB. This light uses a 3-wire pigtail, either 3-Wire Pigtail # A45PB or Right Angle 3-Wire Pigtail # A47PB. This pigtail has three wires, a white, black, and red. The white wire is ground, the black wire is the power, and the red wire is the brake/turn signal, which is...

  • 24 by 60 inch Cargo Carrier Recommendation for Use at Rear of Truck and Travel Trailer
    The best hitch cargo carrier for what you are looking for is the Curt cargo carrier part # C18152 which is the size you are wanting of 24 inch by 60 inch and also because it is a fixed carrier without a folding mechanism which means it will do better at the rear of a travel trailer since hinges add movement and are typically a weaker portion. This also has a rise built into the shank which gives better ground clearance as well.

  • Tail Light Kit For Kuat NV Base Bike Rack
    The LED light kit # 98174LED and bracket # BK70BB is for a cargo carrier like this one # C18152. It will not attach to your Nv 2.0 # BA22B without rigging it up. Your best bet is to get something like the magnetic tow lights # PE26UR. These will connect to your 4 pole on your vehicle and will attach to your roof via magnets. This light kit won't interfere with your bike cover as the others may. Keeping the lights on your roof rather than your bike rack will be much more visible too.

  • What is the 4-Way Connection Curt Auxiliary LED Indicator Lights # C53201 Plugs Into
    The 4-way flat connector that the Curt Auxiliary LED Indicator Lights # C53201 plugs into is the trailer wiring installed on the vehicle either from the manufacturer of it or aftermarket. If your vehicle doesn't seem to have a 4-way it's very likely it does not. If you let me know what the year/make/model of it is I can see what trailer wiring kit you'd need. I attached a review video for this light for you to check out as well.

  • Mounting Dimensions of the Optronics 6-1/2 Inch Trailer Light # ST70RB
    I took a few measurements for you that I think will help. I have attached a diagram and made a short video for you showing the dimensions and the light. I believe this light will work with your bumper without having to cut out a hole in the back of the bumper. When the light is mounted in the grommet, portion of the light that extends past the wall of the bumper will only be 1-11/32 inches. You should have no problem installing this in your 2 inch x 4 inch bumper.
