Video Transcript for Optronics Trailer License Plate Mount Bracket Installation

Today we're going to show you Optronics Trailer License Plate Mount Bracket, part number LP15SB. First off, with our bracket this is an all-metal construction. In its typical application, this license bracket is designed to sit behind the bracket that holds your taillight in place. In this case, we're on the driver's side or left-hand side. Typically they will line up with the studs on the lights. You can mount this either way you'd like, but typically you want this underneath so it sticks underneath the light on the bottom for the license plate. Let's go ahead and install it. Pretty simply.

Let's go ahead and remove these two nuts. Most of the time it's going to be a 7/16. In certain situations, it won't fit like this, so you can flip it around and install it that way as well. Of course, we realize that not as much light will go onto your license plate, but it will still work just fine. Then you can go ahead and install your license plate; 1/4" hardware will work just fine for that.

This hardware does not come with it as well. Since it is recessed inaudible 00:01:14 back, let's go ahead and turn off the lights and try it out and see how the trailer light illuminates the license plate. Even though it's recessed, it's still doing its job. That will finish it for a Optronics Trailer License Plate Mount Bracket, part number LP15SB. .

Mike, where did you get your old black plastic bracket that broke? I had the exact same one and I liked it and it worked for me. I cant find a suitable replacement and would like another one just like this. Thanks!

Are you kidding? This metal license plate mount is rock solid and under $2. The holes are set up perfectly to fit the mounting bolts on my driver side trailer light and the position of the license plate when mounted allows it to be lit by the clear lens on the bottom of the trailer light when the running lights are on. Also, the bracket allows the mounted license plate (and frame) to just clear the rail of the flat bed trailer itself. Yeah, it's a perfect fit. Thanks, trailer!! 145002

I think you will find these photos show a unique installation of your metal trailer license plate holder. My Yamaha golf cart is street legal which requires a license plate. You will see in close up photo that the holder is used up side down for a custom fit. Couldn't be happier. The plastic holder was not stiff enough so your holder is perfect. 635724

I am very pleased with the product, price and service. I don't understand how it can be sold for the low price that it sells for, but it is worth every penny. I am replacing the tag bracket on all of my trailers that have the cheap plastic bracket. The plastic bracket on one of my trailers broke and I lost my tag which cost me 34.00 to replace the tag. This metal bracket will prevent that from happening. 499050

Not much to say except that it fit perfectly and should last a lot longer then the original one that had broken. The pictures used to describe the part are exactly what it looks like on my trailer. And as usual, it arrived when promised and in great condition. Thanks again, etrailer. 572215

  • License Plate Bracket for a 1992 Jayco Pop-up Trailer
    We may not have the exact same license plate bracket as the one you lost on your Jayco trailer. But we do have quite a few that you could likely use. Bracket # LP15SB is an excellent choice since it is metal and would be more durable and would not cause ground problems (if the tail light grounds through the mounting studs). It mounts on holes that are 2 inches apart on center. If you happen to need a hole spacing that is 1-3/4 inches apart then you could use # LP20SB. I have...

  • Replacement License Plate Bracket for Triton Jet Ski Trailer
    A broken plastic license plate holder is unlikely to be repairable so you'll probably be best served replacing it with a sturdier corrosion-resistant unit like # CE26053A which is aluminum or # 30-62-030 which is galvanized steel. It may be necessary to break off the remaining plastic pieces and to drill holes for mounting hardware. You do not want to run your winch strap over the trailer's bow roller. It uses the secondary roller underneath to allow the trailer bow roller to properly...

  • Metal License Plate Holder and Bracket for a 2012 Karavan Boat Trailer
    Metal license plate bracket # LP15SB would be a good option. The top most mounting holes are 2 inches apart on center. I included a picture showing the dimensions. We also have steel cover # LP20SB. I have included a picture of its dimensions as well. Being steel, it would not be as corrosion resistant as # LP15SB. Aluminum bracket # CE26053A is another excellent corrosion resistant option. Its mounting holes are 1-1/2 inches part on center.

  • Would the Optronics Trailer License Plate Bracket part # LP15SB Replace a Wesbar 003201 Bracket
    The Wesbar license plate bracket part number 003201 that you referenced is a universal license plate bracket just like the Optronics Trailer License Plate Bracket part # LP15SB. To see if the mounting holes would line up check out the dimension picture I attached. If the dimensions don't match up you could still make the bracket work pretty easily.

  • License Plate Bracket Options For Tow Dolly
    I recommend using a license plate holder like part # LP15SB. You would need to find a suitable place to mount the bracket and probably drill through the fender or the frame to install this bracket. This bracket does not come with mounting hardware. We do have license plate brackets that are designed to be used with tail lights. I have attached a link to our product page for the brackets we offer. You may find one that will work with the tail lights on your dolly.

  • Does Optronics Heavy Duty Trailer License Plate Mount Bracket # LP15SB Include Hardware
    The Optronics Heavy Duty Trailer License Plate Mount Bracket # LP15SB does not include mounting hardware. You will need to re-use your existing hardware or choose new hardware. This plate mount is intended for full size license plates but you can check the included photo with dimensions to see if it will work to your satisfaction with a small plate.

  • Dimensions of the Optronics # LP15SB
    The Trailer License Plate Mount Bracket, Heavy Duty Zinc Steel # LP15SB is 1/16 inch thick. That makes it 16 gauge sheet metal. I've attached a photo with other dimensions that will most likely be helpful as well.

  • Can License Plate w 6 in Apart Mounting Holes Attach to License Plate Mount Bracket # LP15SB

  • License Plate Relocation For Front Mount Hitch
    The EcoHItch Front Mount Hitch part # 306-X7904 is normally used for accessories like winches and snow plows in situations where license plate visibility is not as big of a deal. Since you are using your front mount hitch for a bike rack while on the road then you would need to relocate the license plate with a license plate bracket like part # LP15SB. Please keep in mind you do not want to drill into the hitch.

  • Do Cargo Carriers Normally Obstruct Taillights and License Plates
    The Surco Cargo carrier part # 52017 that you referenced is 48 inches wide and should sit lower than the taillights of your vehicle (most likely). Mainly due to the width of this carrier it shouldn't interfere at all with the visibility of the taillights. You can measure the distance between your taillights to be certain. This carrier should sit lower and be too narrow to cause issue with that. Also, most likely the cameras that would take a picture of your license plate would be up above...

  • Is a License Plate Relocation Bracket Required when Using a Trailer Hitch Mount Cargo Carrier
    If the cargo loaded on Curt Cargo carrier # C18153 come up to the bottom of the license plate on your 2014 Mazda CX-5 but do not block it then there shouldn't be any problems. You can add a license plate bracket to the back of this carrier using # LP15SB but you would have to drilling into the carrier. Otherwise you could just zip tie the plate to the back of the carrier but you would have to cut it off every time you were finished and it is not as secure as an actual bracket.

  • Recommendation for a License Plate Bracket for a Small Cargo Trailer
    I believe I have just the right license plate bracket for you. Take a look at the Trailer License Plate Mount Bracket, # LP15SB. It is just a little over 8 inches long at 8-7/16 inches. It is 4 inches tall. The center to center distance between the center slotted holes is 2-1/4 inches but can be 2-3/4 inches apart at the outside edges. The top most set of holes are 2 inches apart on center. I have included a picture showing the dimensions for you.

  • Legality of Operating a Car With the Rear License Plate Blocked by a Bike Rack
    Typically a bike rack will not completely obscure a vehicle's rear plates, and in our customers' collective experience this has not been an issue for law enforcement. On the other hand, a fully-loaded cargo carrier WILL likely block a rear plate entirely and this might be an issue. I suggest you contact the State Police or Highway Patrol in the states in which you will be travelling and simply ask them about this concern. In states that do not require a front plate, there may be greater...

    The front fascia trimming that is required to install the Draw-Tite Front Mount Hitch on your 2011 Chevrolet 3500 is detailed in the installation instructions that I have linked for you. Basically, you will need to drill a square hole that is 3-1/4 inches by 3-1/4 inches. To begin measuring for the cutout, you will want to measure from the tow hook bolt center to the ground. Next, subtract 4-1/8 inches from that measurement, this will be the distance from the ground to the bottom of...

  • How to Mount Bike Carrier Without Obstructing Rear License Plate from View
    In many states if your rear license plate is obstructed from view by a bike rack, luggage rack or a similar device, a vehicle owner has the option to obtain a temporary license plate. This third license plate is a paper document that is placed on the interior of the vehicle's rear window in a manner clearly visible from the outside of the vehicle, but doesn't obstruct the driver's view out of the rear window. Another option is to use the bike rack you want to use and move the plate to...

  • Recommended Metal License Plate Bracket with Light
    For a metal license plate bracket with light, we have the Peterson License Plate Light with Bracket # PM436B. We have other options with lights but they are a polymer. You can always get the parts separately like bracket # LP20SB, # CE26053A or # LP15SB and then add the light # LPL31CB. I've attached a link to your light options.

  • Troubleshooting Turn Signals Not Working with Running Lights On on a Utility Trailer
    First, check the trailer wiring harness on your tow vehicle with a circuit tester, like part # 40376, and make sure all of the functions are working correctly without the trailer connected. Make sure to test with the running lights on and off to be sure. If it is not working correctly you will most likely have to replace the taillight converter. If it is working correctly, turn your attention to the trailer. It does sound like a weak ground, or a short circuit issue, because when you...

  • License Plate Bracket Option for MaxxTow Wheelchair Carrier with Ramp
    At the rear of the Maxxow Wheelchair carrier is a pretty large platform which could be used for attaching a license plate bracket like the part # LP15SB. This would be a great option unless you'd prefer the diamond plate part # CE26053A.

  • Is there a Bike Rack Available that Will Not Block the License Plate
    That really depends on where the license plate is located. Since you were looking at the Surco bike rack, # SP501BR, I assume you have a van or RV that has a ladder with the license plate in close proximity. What I recommend is to use the bike rack you want to use (trailers and RVs can only be equipped with certain racks, see link) and relocate the license plate to an area of the vehicle, trailer, or RV that is more visible. For a license plate bracket, if you need one that has...

  • Angled License Plate Bracket Recommendation for a License Plate Collection Display
    I think a better option for you would be the Trailer License Plate Mount Bracket # LP15SB. This bracket has an offset that is pretty close to 90 degrees and since it is a metal bracket it can be bent to the desired angle if needed. You could also paint the bracket with spray paint if you wanted.

  • All Trailer Lights Work Except Brake Lights Using Tail Light Kit # TL29BK
    This is most likely a bad ground. Ground issues normally show up when there is more load on a circuit such as the constant draw of brake lights. There are a few things that could cause this to happen. The first thing you are going to want to check though is the vehicle side connector to make sure the brake signal is reaching that point. Use a circuit tester like # 40376 if you do not already have one to test the vehicle side connector. If the brake signal is not coming through then check...

  • Steel Frame License Plate Bracket Availability that is Compatible with LED License Plate Light
    If you dont mind drilling a few holes you could get the LED Mini Trailer License Plate Light # LPL31CB to work with a Steel Trailer License Plate Mount Bracket # LP20SB. But I pulled both these products from our warehouse and the holes of these products do not line up, but if you used the # LPL31CB as a template you could drill the correct dimension holes in the # LP20SB above its current holes. Or you could check out the Optronics Heavy Duty License Plate Bracket # LP15SB. This has...

  • Do You Have License Plate Brackets for Trailers
    Yes, we sell license plate brackets separately. There are several options including some with lighting for the plate. I would recommend the Trailer License Plate Mount Bracket, Heavy Duty Zinc Steel, item # LP15SB, if you just need a mounting bracket and if you need the light for the plate the Heavy-Duty, LED Trailer License-Plate Light w/ Mounting Bracket, item # LPL55CB would be a good choice.

  • Folding Trailer Hitch Mount Cargo Carrier, Light Kit and License Plate Bracket Recommendations
    The Pro Series carrier, # 63153, does not have an alternative shank that will allow it to fold. But we do have other carriers that do fold and that you can add a light kit and license plate bracket to. Take a look at the Surco carrier, # 52018F. This is a 24 x 60 inch carrier, it folds, and you can add light kit # 52014. I have included a link to a video review for you. For a license plate bracket, there is not a specific bracket made for the carriers but you can use # LP15SB. Self-tapping...

    The measurement between the tail light mounting holes of the CE Smith Trailer License Plate Bracket # CE26053A is really 1-1/2 inches, that is correct. There is a good option for you, however with the Optronics License Plate Mounting Bracket # LP15SB which will work with studs that are 2 inches apart, which you can see in the accompanying photo. I've added a link to a video review and install of this bracket for you to take a look at as well.

  • License Plate Bracket Needed for Wesbar Trailer Lights
    We do have the Trailer License Plate Mount Bracket # LP15SB which was used when installing the Wesbar Submersible Lights # 403026 and # 403076 on a trailer. The mounting holes for the bracket are separated by 2" on center (see attached picture) which you can use to ensure that it fits your application.
