Video Transcript for Optronics Trailer Lights BK70BB Review

Today we're reviewing part number BK70BB from Optronics. This is a trailer light mounting bracket for six and a half inch oval trailer lights. It's constructed or durable steel and it has a black powder coat finish that resists both rust and corrosion. The bracket can be mounted horizontally, like this, or vertically, like that. It has two mounting holes at the top and two screw holes, one on each side, as you can see here. The opening for the six and a half inch light is six and eleven-sixteenth inches long, and it is two and five-eights inches tall from the bottom of the opening to the top. The way this works is, you must have a six and a half inch grommet. If you don't have one of your own, you can purchase this one separately on etrailer.com. This is part number A70GB, and it is the Optronics six and a half inch rubber grommet.

The way this works, I have a six and a half inch oval light here, so I can show you. You put the grommet on the light, it gives you a nice weather-resistant seal, and as you can see, the grommet is open in the back for easy access to your wiring. Then you mount that into the bracket, like that. It allows you to flush mount your light. We can take that off. There are brackets made by several other manufacturers for which this part can be an exact replacement, and those are listed on the product page. Now to check some measurements. This bracket measures eight and a quarter inches long. Four inches tall. And one and five-eighths of an inch deep. There you have it for part number BK70BB from Optronics, the trailer light mounting bracket for six and a half inch oval trailer lights.

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 216182

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. 282384

Elcellent product and arrived early. Works just as advertised and looks nice on my Cargo Carrier. Just got done ordering more items. Great customer service department answered all my questions. 519670

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. 602170

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. 691414

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. 665944

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 559486

Upon placing an order i had not received tracking number of shipment and called to see where order was after 7 days. While there was some confusion they found the problem that supplier was no longer making a stainless light bracket and originally said they were 2 more weeks out on getting the powder coated ones. 3 days later may shipment was received in full with everything. Even though there was an error in the order at least you could contact someone and get immediate assistance. This will be my first choice for parts as they have given great service on all my previous orders as well. Keep up the great service hard to find these days. 434745

  • Recommended Lights to Increase Visibility on Hitch-Mounted Bike Rack
  • The Optronics Sealed, Streamline LED Trailer Light # STL79RB referenced in your question will work to provide an additional light on your bike rack, however there may be easier options. You might have trouble mounting the light assembly to the rack itself and the 3-wire design will not allow for easy disconnect when you are not using the bike rack. For an easier option, I recommend looking at the LED Light Kit # 98174LED. You can easily mount these to your bike by using the Mounting...

You can use self-tapping screws to secure the brackets to the top, rear rail of the carrier. This set up is the most cost effective option. It would plug into a 4-way trailer wiring connector.

You can definitely use the Optronics Streamline LED Trailer Tail Light # STL79RB with wiring like the Hopkins Endurance # HM38134 by just using heat shrink butt connectors # DW05744-5.

  • Parts Needed to Add LED Lights to Thule EasyFold Bike Rack
  • The Thule EasyFold XT 2 Electric Bike Platform Rack # TH903202 that you referenced doesn't have taillights built into it. It's also not a normal requirement to have to add trailer lighting to a rack that has a cover but we have seen people add lighting to bike racks and cargo carriers before. You'd be modifying the rack to the point of voiding the warranty but you could use the LED kit part # 98174LED to add the lights and then use the bracket # BK70BB and you'd be set.

  • Recommended Cargo Carrier for 2015 Mazda3 Hatchback
  • You can use a cargo carrier with your 2015 Mazda3 hatchback but it will need to be a fixed carrier and not a folding carrier. The reason for that is the only trailer hitch that fits your '15 Mazda3 is a Class I hitch that requires the stability that a fixed carrier offers as opposed to a folding carrier. For a hitch I recommend the Draw-Tite # 24914 which fits your hatchback and is a Class I hitch with a 1-1/4" receiver and 200 lb tongue weight capacity. What this means is the combined...

In the picture I attached you can see a similar way this bracket was used with the light kit.

  • LED Reverse Light Recommendation for 2005 Toyota Prius
  • Since you have a Prius I would strongly recommend going with an LED reverse light that will draw considerably less than the Halogen part # PL-807. For that you'd want the LED light part # BUL10CB with the bracket # BK70BB and the grommet # A70GB and you'd have a setup that draws only .28 of an amp per light. You'll also need a wiring pigtail like the part # A49PB. This could be ran to the reverse light circuit of your vehicle without overdrawing it.

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.

We do have mounting brackets like part # BK70BB which may help but there isn't a kit that is made to fit with bike racks.

  • Lights And Accessories for Using Curt # C18153 Cargo Carrier on 2014 Chevy Suburban
  • The only difference between the two anti-rattle hitch locks you referenced is that the # 63232 is for 2 inch receivers and the # SHP2040-XL is for 2-1/2 inch receivers. Since your Suburban has the 2 inch receiver, you'd need the # 63232. If the 4 pole on your Suburban is fixed in place on the bumper, I'd recommend the # 9653P extension.

  • Is a Light Kit Required When Using a Cargo Carrier Like the Curt # C18153

If this is the case then I recommend using the Tail Light Kit # 98174LED, along with 2 Brackets # BK70BB using Self-Tapping Screws # FA1131822.
