Perhaps the easiest light kit to install, the sealed light units snap into the built-in mounting brackets on Draw-Tite, Rola and Tow Ready cargo carriers and then plug into the existing 4-pole trailer connector on the vehicle.


Features:

  • Fits Draw-Tite 40101, Rola 59502 and 59507, and Pro Series 63153 and 63155 trailer hitch mounted cargo carriers
  • Off-set Y-harness - one lead measures about 3'




Light Kit Installation


Insert grommet

Step 1

Mount rubber grommets on both sides of cargo carrier tray making sure grommets are seated securely.



Insert light

Step 2

Press tail lamps into grommets until seated securely on both sides of carrier tray.



Route plug

Step 3

Route plug with green wire under cargo carrier to the passenger side (right) and plug into cargo carrier tail lamp.

Route plug with yellow wire under cargo carrier to the driver side (left) and plug into cargo carrier tail lamp.



Secure wiring

Step 4

With supplied cable ties, secure all wiring to the bottom of the cargo carrier.



Please note: With the off-set Y-harness, one wire lead (about 3' long) is run straight to a light, the other lead (about 6' long) is run along the back edge of the carrier before it curves up to the second light. On the 40101 and 59502 cargo carriers, the wires come up through the carriers' mesh floor to attach to the back of the lights. On the Tow Ready carriers 63153 and 63155, the tighter mesh floor is not large enough for the plug to pass through. Therefore run the wire leads under the platform to the lights, then up the front of the carrier and around to the back of the light. This also helps prevent the wires from getting pinched by the cargo. On vehicles where the 4-pole trailer connector is tucked under the vehicle, a 4-pole extension may be required to connect the two plugs. See 'related items.'

Video Transcript for etrailer Hitch Cargo Carrier 20174 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Cargo Carrier Light Kit for railed cargo carriers. This light kit provides your cargo carrier with lights that serve three functions: tail light function, stop or break light function, and turn signals. This light kit is very easy to install. It's going to come with everything that you need for your installation. Once installed, the lights will receive power from the vehicle. The wiring harness is going to plug into the four-way flat connector on your vehicle.

The other ends of the harness plug into the back of the lights. This kit's designed to fit Draw-Tite 40101, Rolla 59502 and 59507, and Pro Series 63153 and 63155, trailer hitch mounted cargo carriers. You can see everything that the light kit comes with. It's going to come with your two incandescent tail lights, nice white base with a red lens. They are SAE and DOT, Department of Transportation, compliant. It's going to come with your rubber mounting grommets.

It's going to come with your wiring harness. It's going to have a four-way flat connector on it. The connector with the green wire goes to the passenger side tail light. The connector with the yellow wire going to it goes to the driver's side tail light. You're going to get zip ties to secure any excess or slack in the wiring that you may have.

Please note that on vehicles where the 4-pole trailer connector is tucked under the vehicle, a 4-pole extension may be required to connect the two plugs. That item is sold separately and it's available here at etrailer.com. What I want to do now is simply just go ahead and hook these up to power. That way you can see what they look like with power running to them. These plugs just plug directly into the back of the housing of the lights. The plug goes in and then we'll connect our four-way flat connector.

We'll also turn off our overhead lights so you can see it in a lower light setting. This is the tail, or running, light function of the kit. When we apply our brakes, you can see how that signal output increases, really brightens up quite a bit. It's going to do that same thing when we activate our turn signals. This would be hazards. If we do just one side . We'll do the other side. That's going to do it for today's look at the Cargo Carrier Light Kit for railed cargo carriers.

Delivery was quick ordered Mon mornning deliverd Fri afternoon.Trailor was very easy to put together looks great and should do what I got it for.. could come with 6 larger washers fo 3 center bolts.Lights allso went on easy.i chose to run them through the smaller tubes to lessen exposure seeing that i cut them to add an extension (to short by 12 inchs) then I zip tighed tupperware over inside to protect from cargo banging into them and popping them out..in all I would recemend great for the price 148843

Used this for my new carrier. Fit was perfect. I extended the wires in order to run them inside the tubes of the rack. Not necessary,but a cleaner look. You could just zip tie them to the rack if you want. Lights are bright. No need for LED type. 403743

Very well packaged, arrived in good shape. Easy to put together. Have 12.50 x 35 inch tires plenty of clearance, can not open tail gate with large tire. Ordered light/wire kit, changed to different lights. Will work great for what I need. 365843

Etrailer was a pleasure to order from. I highly recommend them to everyone. I started to order a cargo 24x60 carrier pro series online but had some questions. I called the company and spoke with one of their representatives. She was very courteous and professional. She was able to answer my questions and helped me place my order. It arrived very quickly and as ordered. I have since put the carrier together along with add on the light kit. I tested the fit and the wired connection, everything worked as represented. Fantastic company and product! 174758

Package was received with no issues, well packed. Assembly was easy. The light kit install instructions could use a little more detail, hard to tell what they're supposed to look like when properly seated, but not a big issue. Would like to see the wiring harness light connector removable so as to run the wires inside the support channel, but not a big deal. My harness just fit into my connector, but I would imagine others would need an extension. Overall, very happy with the product. I hauled a big gas grill an it was no issues. Plenty of tie-down options. I would recommend this product to anyone looking for a way to expand storage. I can take 7 people in my SUV and now I have a place for their stuff. 142387


Comments

No problems. The only thing I would change is to make the wires for the lights longer so they could be attached along the perimeter of the frame instead of jutting across.

They work just fine. The cord to the trailer light socket next to the receiver is to short. Had to purchase an extender. Also, the light fit to loose into the sockets on the carrier. Will have to come up with something to keep them in. 257350

It's great for what it is... until you need to change a bulb... the lenses seem to be permanently glued to the shells, so it's impossible to pull them apart and change the bulbs. Am I missing something? I mean, what the heck kind of design is that? 26704


Comments

Same problem, bought these for my Rola rack to use on a family trip to the home of the mouse in Florida, LOVE THE ROLA RACK, LOVE THE ETRAILER LARGE CARGO BAG, and ETRAILER as a whole is AWESOME!!!! ........That said, WISH I HADNT WASTED THE MONEY ON THE LIGHTS!!.......they stick too far into the cargo area because the plug connection is on the rear of the light.......If the connection was on the side vice the back then it wouldnt be so bad, Just like everyone else, wire to plug is too short so I ended up buying an extender so it wouldnt be in the way and look like crap........Left TX and on second day get to the home of Mickey and notice the passenger light is out....the lights were in use for all of two days.....just got home and had a few to look at the housing thinking I would a new bulb in....I do no see any way to get it apart without using implements of destruction - can see enough of the bulb to tell it is blown. Will probably trash the lights, go to the trailer shop down the road and build my own set with bulbs that can be changed....description really should read DISPOSABLE LIGHT KIT..........I really like etrailer but this product needs some serious improvement!!!!

We're currently on a 9000 mile road trip from California through Canada to Nova Scotia, to Maine and back... we purchased a car carrier and waterproof cover and they have performed as advertised! Lots of rain, muddy conditions here in Canada and all of our camping equipment stored in our carrier remains clean and bone dry! Great sturdy products. I purchased the light kit for the carrier and it too has performed flawlessly. The carrier is installed on my 2016 Subaru Outback. I had a 2" hitch previously installed and the carrier with all the weight looks great. I don't feel it on the road... 422204

Bought the 24x60 railed cargo carrier with the light kit - love the carrier, but the light kit sure could use up to 1 foot more length for the yellow (driver's side) wire. It is too short and I could not route it neatly using the support beams--had to go straight from light to plug and then there is still no slack. They could have taken some from the green (passenger side) because there is plenty there to route neatly along the support beams. I had to fold up about 8 inches of that run. It is simple to install and works fine, just need more wiring. 5914

by:

For $20 it's not bad, but the plugs on the lights are a little sketchy and the number of zip ties are a bit short if you want thorough security. They are otherwise easy to install 614546



- 20174
by:

Very nice set up. Works great on my carrier rack to be able to have brake and tail lights without worrying about the gear on the rack blocking the vehicles lights. 621656



- 20174
by:

The product itself appears to be pretty well made. The wired connections fit nice and snug and were sufficient length to route underneath the cargo carrier i purchased and plug into the hitch harness. I only gave it 4 stars since it didnt fit in the 24x60 Reese Cargo Carrier #63153, even though the description says it will. The rubber gasket and light are too small for the oblong openings in the carrier and I had to ziptie them in place so they dont fall out. 617203

Everything fit just like you said it would. My only comment is I wish the connectors were smaller so that they would fit through the bottom of the cargo carrier instead of routing them around the outside. 504071

Was a little concerned that this product would not live up to my expectations. I was totally wrong. Quality product great, easy to install, make sure you follow the directions as the product fits very snug to create a tight fit. Wiring Harness could have been a little longer to route the wires the way "I" would have liked. Overall Quality product. 493629

by:

The light kit arrived quickly, and was easy to install. I agree with the comments about the problem of those two plugs sticking into where the baggage will rest on the rack (it will push against them when you're stopping), and that the grommets seem to not hold the lights into the rack openings very securely. The electrical wires seem to be long enough now. Sure like doing business with etrailer! 437766

Love, love, love our cargo carrier - used it when we traveled across the states. It's sturdy, easy to use, and very handy, since we travel with two large dogs. Pups had room in the van because they weren't squished in with luggage. So, the product is great, but we also want to give a shout out to the customer service and the extremely prompt and friendly communications. 367467

by:

great all in one package, no need to splice wires or buy any additional wires. fits right into the 6" oval trailer light brackets. Plugs up to my jeeps trailer plug by the hitch reciever. Took me less than 10 min to install. Plugging the wire into the light itself takes a little patience but once you get the plugs lined up it goes right in. The lights themselves feel solid. 327410

by:

Works great. Installed easy. 315137

by:

Lights work well. The only complaint is that they did not fit into the trailer hitch carrier snugly. I used cable ties to secure them better onto the hitch carrier. Not a big deal. Overall, though, very nice. And, yes, I would purchase them again. 311717



- 20174
by:

Lights were no problem; they fit well, were sealed and water resistant, and worked as expected. The wiring harness was the problem! The two connecting 'branches' to the lights were the incorrect lengths, no matter how they were manipulated. So extra wire was on one side and the other was too short. 305189

Exactly what I ordered and it fit perfect ! 301845

by:

light slips out of housing easily but other than works fine. 276262



- 20174
by:

Would not recommend this kit. Had to extend all wires on lights to reach and not be damaged when not on vehicle. After redoing wires to both lights, they got so hot they burned plastic housing. Replace both lights with led ones. Better off buying your own lights and wires and install. 273738

The light kit worked great for our trip to Florida. Items arrive quickly and was easy to install on my carrier. Thanks and will definitely use e trailer again. 260873

The Cargo Carrier, Cargo Bag & Light Kit were perfect! NO water entered the Cargo bag, the light kit was easily installed! It made traveling so easy. We stayed in a hotel on the way to the beach & we just simply put the bag in our SUV so it was secure overnight! Perfect solution! Customer Service is excellent. We didn't have any problems, but when I had questions before purchasing emails were answered promptly! 260203



- 20174
by:

Very easy to install and adds safety to people notice the carrier on the back of the car! We initially installed them on the underside of the carrier and then realized they would hit on steep hills, so moved them to the top. 248256

  • Do Lights have to be Added to a Trailer Hitch Mount Cargo Carrier
  • Basically, in any state in the union, if the rear license plate or lights are obscured in any way, a police officer can pull you over, regardless of the specific verbiage of the laws. Beyond that it is just a good idea to add lights for safey. For the Rola cargo carrier # 59502 you can use light kit # 20174. In order to use the lights your vehicle will need to have a 4-Way trailer connector. If your 2012 Toyota Highlander does not have a trailer connector you can use # 118449. I have...

  • Recommendation To Relocate License Plate When Using Tow Ready Hitch Cargo Carrier, # 63153
  • On the Tow Ready Hitch Cargo Carrier, # 63153, the license plate can be mounted to the back of the cargo carrier by drilling two holes of 1/4 inch or less and attaching the plate with two screws. I also have a Optronics License Plate Holder, # LP35BB, that you could use. It mounts by one screw in the center and then the license plate attaches to the holder. If you have the Optional Light Kit, # 20174, on your cargo carrier you could use the Optronics License Plate Light And Bracket,...

  • Cargo Carrier Clearance From Rear Mounted Spare Tire On 2012 Jeep Wrangler
  • I did some research on a 2012 Jeep Wrangler, and per the Jeep website, if you have a Class lll trailer hitch with a 2 inch receiver, the tongue weight capacity for that hitch is 500 lbs. The weight capacity would include the cargo carrier weight along with anything that would be carried. The towing capacity for your Jeep Wrangler is 2000 lbs. If you have a Class lll hitch, one of the carriers I recommend is the 24x60 Pro Series Cargo Carrier, part # 63153. It features a 2-1/2 inch rise...

This light kit will install on the Pro Series cargo carrier and plug into a 4-flat connector on your vehicle. This will give you operating taillights on the back of your cargo carrier.

I have linked a couple of videos on these light kits for you. To add reflective strips you can use # RE418T. You will likely have to trim them to fit but they will definitely make the carrier more visible. You could use marker # DM35RS to attach to the basket so that you can see it in your mirrors.

  • The tongue weight capacity of the CURT Trailer Hitch, # C13143, for the 2010 Lexus RX 350, is 600 pounds. If the vehicle tongue weight capacity is under 600 pounds or under the 500 pounds of the carrier then you go by the lowest rating. Tongue weight is calculated by the weight of the carrier plus the weight of the cargo loaded on it. You also have to add in the weight of anything loaded behind the rear axle of the vehicle. So, if you have a 50 pound carrier and put 200 pounds of...

  • If the cargo carrier and the cargo loaded on it do not obscure the vehicle tail lights, you do not have to have a light kit installed on the carrier. However, it is still a good idea to get a light kit for safety purposes. Since you have the wagon model of the 1995 Buick Roadmaster, you would first need to install Tow Ready Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring, # C55352. For cargo carrier, # 63155, you can use light kit # 20174.

  • The Surco 24 by 60 Cargo Carrier, part # 52018 has a straight shank, which means that the height at the back end would be the same at the height of the receiver. For the Toyota Venza, once a hitch is installed, the top of the receiver would fall just below the bottom of the rear fascia.

  • Attaching License Plate to Cargo Carrier

Your best bet would be to directly contact the State Police or Department of Transportation in the states in which you will be traveling. Many cargo carriers do not provide a dedicated place to attach a license plate. You could drill two holes through the rear rail in order to bolt the plate in place to temporarily attach the plate, if needed. The Rola Cargo Carrier, part # 59502 has...

The carrier includes license plate relocation holes to let you reposition the plate if necessary. It also includes mounting locations for a lighting kit (part # 20174) if the carrier should block your vehicle tail lights, as well as an anti-rattle hitch pin and clip.

  • Can a Trailer hitch Mount Cargo Carrier be Used to Hold a 185 Pound Generator
  • A trailer hitch mount cargo carrier would be a good choice to carry your 185 pound generator. You will need one that fits the trailer hitch on the vehicle and that has the size and capacity to hold the generator. The Rola carrier you referenced, # 59502, is designed to fit 2 inch trailer hitch receivers. It has a capacity of 600 pounds so it can easily handle the generator. The usable space is 23 inches by 56 inches so you will want to compare that to the dimensions of the generator. You...

  • Are the Wesbar 108121 and Optronics # ST70RB Lights Interchangeable with Light Kit # 98174LED
  • Wesbar light 108121 is now a discontinued item but the Optronics # ST70RB is a direct replacement for it, and yes, this 6-1/2-inch oval 3-function light will work great as a replacement part for the cargo carrier lighting kit # 20174. For brighter light output and lower power demand you can change over to an LED-type lighting kit such as # 98174LED. LEDs do cost more than standard incandescent lights but they offer higher efficiency, brighter output and require no periodic bulb changes.

The license plate can be mounted at a location of your choosing on the back of the carrier using License Plate Holder, # LP35BB. You can also drill two holes of 1/4 inch or less diameter and attach the plate with two screws. A light kit is not available for the CURT model.

Plus, the welded carrier is more sturdy than the bolted model. The 63155 is the same carrier but it requires assembly, bolting together three parts.

Also the Curt carrier has the ability to adjust the placement of the carrier basket on the shank and includes the required hitch pin and clip, while the Pro Series does not.

  • You can easily determine the fit of this cargo carrier, the Rola Dart # 59550, on your 2010 Toyota Sienna by taking one simple measurement of your trailer hitch receiver. Measure from the center of the hitch pin hole back 7 inches. This point is where the closest edge of the carrier will be when attached to your vehicle and folded up in the storage position. As long as this point is behind your rear bumper (and any other parts at the rear of the vehicle) the Rola carrier will fit when...

  • Cargo Carrier Light Kit Recommendations for the Surco Hitch Cargo Carrier # 52018F
  • The best option would be to use the etrailer Cargo Carrier Light Kit, # 52014, which will attach directly to the upright bars on the carrier you purchased, see photo. This is the option I would select for the best fit and easiest installation. You could also use the Trailer Light Mounting Bracket for 6-1/2 inch Oval Trailer Lights, # BK70BB, to install the Light Kit for Draw-Tite, Tow Ready, and Rola Railed Cargo Carriers, # 20174, on the Surco Hitch Cargo Carrier, # 52018F, that you...

  • Where Can Straps be Hooked to on the Rola Dart Trailer Hitch Mount Cargo Carrier
  • The holes at the rear of the Rola Dart Cargo Carrier # 59550 are there to install lights, # 20174 or # 59516. A more structurally sound location, such as at the bottom corner, would be better to hook on to. You can hook onto any part of the tray mesh and main supports, where accessible, to secure cargo.

  • Comparing Rola and Pro Series Cargo Carriers for a 2009 Toyota Highlander
  • The Pro Series carrier # 63153 is a great value. The steel mesh floor of this basket has smaller opening compared to the Rola carriers, # 59502 and # 59550 so it is less likely to allow something to fall through. If you will not be using the carrier very often then I would go with the Pro Series carrier all the way. It can be fitted with light kit # 20174. The middle ground is Rola carrier # 59502. This basket is a little higher quality than the Pro Series but lacks the razzle dazzle...

  • Adapter for a 7-Way Trailer Connector on an Acura MDX to a 4-Way Flat for a Light Kit
  • It sounds like your Acura MDX has a blade style RV 7-Way. In order to connect the 4-Way flat from Light Kit, # 20174, to your MDX you will just need an adapter like # PK12716. One end will plug into the vehicle side. The other end has a 4-Way flat receptacle for the light kit.

  • Replacement Lights and Light Kits for Tow Ready Cargo Carrier # 63153 and # 63155
  • You are correct. The light kit, # 20174, for Tow Ready Cargo Carriers, like # 63153, are sealed and there are no replacement bulbs. The lights used in the kit are 6-1/2 inch Oval Trailer Stop, Turn and Tail Light, 3-Function, # ST70RB. We also have complete replacement light kits. First is the 20174 kit you have referenced. The other is the LED Light Kit for Draw-Tite, Tow Ready, and Rola Railed Cargo Carriers, # 98174LED. The only difference is that the 98174LED light kit uses LEDs...

  • Recommendation for an Enclosed Trailer Hitch Mount Cargo Carrier
  • There are no boxes that will fit in trailer hitch mount cargo carriers like # 63155 but there are bags that fit, # 59102. It is not waterproof because to be waterproof it has to be able to be submerged under water for a certain period of time and not let any water in. We do carry some enclosed hard shell trailer hitch mount cargo carriers that will fit in Class II, 1-1/4 inch trailer hitches though. First we have the Thule Transporter, # TH665C. This carrier can tilt down, lick, and...

  • Comparing Curt, Pro Series, and Surco Trailer Hitch Cargo Carriers for a 2002 Honda Odyssey
  • The Curt cargo carrier # C18153, is the only one of the 3 that can fold up. From the center of the hitch pin hole to the nearest part of the carrier is 9 inches when folded and 19 inches when in the down position. It fits a 2 inch trailer hitch receiver hitch only and has a 500 pound capacity. The slight rise in the shank provides a little better ground clearance. This is the best all around carrier for your 2002 Honda Odyssey. Pro Series carrier # 63153 does not fold up but has more...
