Video Transcript for etrailer Hitch Mounted Cargo Carrier Tail Light Mounting Brackets Review

We're looking at this bracket for your cargo carriers. And it's gonna allow you to put some taillights on your cargo carrier. Typically, when we start stacking stuff pretty high it starts to block our taillights. So with this bracket, it's gonna solve that problem. The bracket has a nice clean look to it. It matches the finish of the etrailer cargo carrier.

It's gonna be made of steel and it's gonna fit around the top tube. And then bolt through the bottom little grate. Everything comes with the kit, which is nice. And it's definitely so much better than the other options I have. I don't like this, cuz it looks bad, it's incandescent and I'm just looking for a clean look.

And with this, I'm adding even more length onto the carrier. So that's something I try to avoid especially with accessories. So the bracket gives you a nice clean look and it looks like it's supposed to be there. We have a couple different options when it comes to lights. Here are a few.

One, we have an LED one here. It's more flush cuz it doesn't have a curve to it. And the incandescent version has a little curve to it as well, but they are all gonna fit and there are more options on our website. Pretty much what makes it fit is the shape and this little rubber grommet. Give you an idea how big this bracket is, it's about eight inches long.

And then from the very top to the very bottom is about five and a half inches. Our tubing's gonna be seven eights by seven eights. So that's what this fits around. And then on the bottom it sticks in quite a bit. So it goes all the way to the little grates right here so we can get our bolts through. And from the edge of our bracket to the other edge right here, it's about two inches. There's not a whole lot to this product. It's a very simple product that doesn't take a whole lot of time to install just to solve your problem. And I think that's a win-win. So if you're interested, you can stick around. We're gonna show you how we installed it. To get the bracket installed, I wanna install it on the farthest most point right here. So what we gotta do just put it like this, drop it down and sits into place. I like to even it out. So give a tape measure, just eye it out. We're gonna have some hardware with the kit. We're gonna go with the bolt with a washer on it and we're gonna put it down trough this hole just like that. On the other side, we're gonna take another washer and now we're gonna lock that and I'm gonna get these just hand tight for now and install the other two. Now we're gonna center it up and then take a half inch wrench and socket to tighten it up all the way. Once that side's done it's gonna be the same exact process on the other side. Now that the brackets are nice and mounted up we're ready for some lights. It's just a simple product that just solves a lot of problems for a lot of people. So I think it's gonna be very useful for you. If you have a cargo carrier like this one go ahead and grab the bracket and the light kit. And if you're picking between the two lights that are gonna work with the bracket I would go with the LEDs just because it's LEDs. And that's pretty much it for our look at the etrailer light bracket for your cargo carrier. And I'm Adam with etrailer..

Purchased these in addition to led lights for my etrailer cargo carrier. Fast installation, led lights fit securely. In a review I read someone mentioned them as being loose. Initially mine also seemed loose, on closer examination I discovered that the the problem was that I failed to properly seat the rubber grommets supplied. After correcting my mid take it takes a lot of effort to remove lights. Absolutely no way for them to become dislodged from road vibration. I turn to etrailer for all towing and illumination needs.



by:

Easy to use and install! Highly recommend to make the lights look more finished compared to zip tying lights to the trailer.

  • Option to Add Lights to Bike Rack
    While there isn't an LED light strip that is so narrow that will plug into your 4-way, there may be an option for you to add lights with a cargo carrier light kit: - LED Light Kit # 98174LED The issue would be mounting them, as there are mounting brackets, but you may have to get creative in finding a way to do it, but the correct fit for these lights is the Tail Light Mounting Brackets # e98943. So while I know this isn't the exact solution you were looking for, I at least wanted to...

    The # 20174 cargo carrier taillight kit is indeed compatible with the etrailer # e98874 24 x 60 cargo carrier you purchased, but you'll also need the # e98943 bracket kit.

  • Will Lights be Secure in etrailer.com Tail Light Mounting Brackets
    The etrailer.com Tail Light Mounting Brackets for Hitch Mounted Cargo Carrier # e98943 is only designed for specific cargo carriers so we cannot confirm if it will fit on any bike rack. I can tell you that the LED Light Kit # 98174LED will absolutely work in the brackets and will not fall out. If you check out the linked video review I added you can see that the lights install via the grommet first into the bracket and then the light goes into the grommet. In regards to the Trailer Light...

  • How To Install Trailer Lights On The Back Of A Hitch-Mounted Bike Rack
    I have a solution for you, but there are not any custom-fit tail lights for the Kuat NV 2.0 Bike Rack # NV22G. I think your best option is to use a light kit that is designed for a hitch cargo carrier. LED Light Kit # 98174LED with etrailer Mounting Brackets # e98943 would be a good route to go. You can attach the brackets to the Kuat bike rack; drilling will be required. Then connect the 4-pole wiring harness to your vehicle's 4-pole trailer connector and you will have trailer lights...

  • Availability of Lighted License Plate Mount for Cargo Carrier
    If you have a hitch mounted cargo carrier like the Rola Swinging Hitch Mounted Cargo Carrier, part # 59109, that you reference, your license plate will attach to the bottom tray between the taillights. There are four mounting points to show where the license plate is supposed to go. There are also two mounting points to show where the Rola License Plate Light Kit, part # 59117, should be installed. This light comes only in white. However, the Rola Carrier has a plug for the red brake lights. I...

  • Recommended Talllight Kit for etralier e98873 Hitch Mounted Motorcycle Carrier
    Adding a light kit to the etrailer # e98873 motorcycle carrier is a great idea to provide better visibility for the carrier. I'd recommend using # 20174 for incandescent bulbs or # 98174LED for LED lamps. You'll also need a set of # e98943 mounting brackets. The LED's are more expensive, but they'll be much brighter and draw just a fraction of the electricity that the incandescent bulbs do.

  • Recommended Cargo Carrier for a 2011 Scion TC
    I would be happy to! It looks like the only hitches for a 2011 Scion TC are 1-1/4" so you are going to be limited to 200 lbs total. With this in mind, I recommend the 17x46 Curt Cargo Carrier for 1-1/4" item # C18145. This carrier measures 48" long x 20" wide x 6" tall and weighs only 28 lbs. You'll have right at 170 lbs of weight you can add to it. You can use the etrailer Cargo Bag w/ Mounting Straps item # 988501 to keep your equipment dry. We actually did a review video of this cargo...

  • Dimensions of B&W Custom Headache Rack w/ LED Brake, Turn, Tail Lights
    The B&W Custom Headache Rack w/ LED Brake, Turn, Tail Lights # BWPUCP7500WA has the following measurements: Bottom width: 72-1/2" Top width: 63-1/2" Height: 28" This isn't a fit for your 1994 Dodge Ram 3500 so if you want it to fit you'll need to get creative. If you'd like a headache rack that is custom-fit for your pickup then we have the Aries Classic Headache Rack # AA111000 instead. This has a semi-gloss black powder coat instead of that white powder coat and it doesn't come with...

    If you've got a cargo carrier like the etrailer # e98874 that you're using the etrailer Cargo Bag # 988501 with, then you can use the Light Kit for Draw-Tite, Tow Ready, and Rola Railed Cargo Carriers # 20174 and mounting bracket # e98943 to give yourself some extra lights.

  • Can a Cargo Carrier be Attached to the Back of a Kuat Bike Rack
    There isn't a hitch mounted cargo carrier that will allow you to insert your Kuat bike rack into the back of the carrier. But there is a bike rack that can have a cargo carrier attached to the end of it. they are sold as a set, # HR1400Z-85. The great part is the cargo carrier and bike rack in this set can each be used independently. I have linked a video review for you.

    For your 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL, the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" # DT78MR is a great option made by the same manufacturer as Reese components. The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" # C13392 is also a great fit for your Jeep with the rear spare and has a thicker powder coat but a lesser tongue weight rating.
