Video Transcript for Custer Adjustable Emergency Light Review

Today, were going to be taking a look at the Custer Amber LED Adjustable Emergency Light with magnetic base. Its part number is HF18A-MB. This Amber LED light, which contains 18 LEDs behind the lens is going to allow you to safely and effectively alert every motorist to your emergency situations. Simply click the button one time for a flashing beam, and a second time for a solid. The Custer Emergency Light comes with a strong magnetic base. This base has a protective cover over the rear of it, thats going to help to protect any of your paint surfaces from scratches.

Its as easy as lining our two arrows up so they face the right same direction, rather. Well slide it in until we hear it click. The magnetic base is going to allow us to attach to any portion of our vehicle thats going to have a metal surface. There are two small black knobs located on each side. Well loosen those up, and as you can see, we have multiple different angles to choose from in setting our light. So if were working on a flat surface like this, we can rotate it up to where it's easily visible out.

At the same time, if we need to put it on the roof of our vehicle or if were just putting it on top of a toolbox or a trailer or something like that, we can turn it to where it's in its upward angle. Well simply just tighten down those two knobs to secure it in place. Now, the batteries are not included. It uses a standard set of four double A's. Now that weve got our batteries installed, its ready for use. The 6 by 4 inch light is going to run for up to 32 hours on a single set of batteries, so its got a really good life.

This is also available in red, part number HF18R-MB. Now that weve gone over most of the key features of the light, lets take it out and show you what it looks like in action. Hey, buddy. Thanks for stopping. Its starting to rain.

I was just about to get wet. Thats going to complete todays look at the Custer Amber LED Adjustable Emergency Light with magnetic base, part number HF18A-MB. .

I've been an e-trailer for a couple of years now and the service and products are excellent. 166466

Was looking for an alternative to re wiring my sawdust trailer. This lite fit the bill. Very bright. very strong magnet to hold it in place. Fast shipping and a great price played a factor in buying this product. I like the fact that you can change the positioning of the light. Would recommend. 601611

It works perfectly. I had hoped it might be brighter. So it's a five star product barring my expectations. 876249

Handy light. I slap it on the back of my garden tractor for greater visibility when blowing snow. Strong magnet, 455857

great light. we use often for corner markings on wide loads. 448606

Very good product! Bright yellow light and good battery life. Magnetic base is very strong, easy to attach on a vehicle or a trailer fender. The yellow light is a good complement to a vehicles standard red emergency flashers. 373000

The lights worked fine- The Magnets did not hold well- Hard fastened the lights to Tractor fenders. 313152

When working near street side my husband uses this on his mower. This little light has a big impact on making it safer for him. I would highly recommend this for anyone working in hazardous situations. This is a great light for the price! 193337

When on flash mode, if aimed down the oncoming drivers line of sight, it looks like a warning light on a construction warning cone or barrier out to 100 meters or more (daytime, more at night, I'm sure). I would become exceedingly wary if I were to approach it until I could determine if there was a hazard or not, and if so, what type. Even though I don't know how long the batteries will last or how durable the product will be, I bought this as a backup to my rotating warning light and it appears that it will perform as expected. I would buy this product again, and I would recommend it to a friend. 152873

Really like these lights. Magnet more than adequate to hold in place. Very visible, using on UTV that I do a roadside pickup with you. Just another way to make myself more visible to traffic. 149341

by:

This is a product that I have been looking for the use in case of motorhome breakdown. Rear flashers on tow vehicle are not adequate for road side warning. These with magnetic base can attach to vehicle and be used to supplement. 114964

I bought these lights for when I haul oversized loads. They are super bright! Magnets seem pretty strong, just slap them on and go. Great price, I can't comment on the battery life, but it's worth it for every mile extra that I can run in states that require lights at night in places that it's impossible to wire light directly. Very happy with them! The only downfall is that to change the batteries requires a Phillips screwdriver for 2 little screws. 109263

Awesome!! We order 100's of these and we love them!!! 104920

I've purchased four of these items and am very satisfied. I looked at many competing products but none impressed me as much as the HF 18A-MB. I'm going to buy two more for my daughter as well. I think that the best part of all of this is etrailer. The owner is extremely customer focused with great follow-up. It's been a very good experience and I don't know how things could have been any better. In this day and age customer service is so important and they have it down pat. 64105

Patrick: Very impressive product. Throws out the flashing LED's far out and that buys you an extra margin of safety. There are some crazy drivers out there who get distracted easily. I saw one guy driving with a cigarette in his mouth trying to tie a shoielace at 60MPH on the highway. I definitely want that guy to see my flashing lights from as far away as possible. I'm ordering another two for our other car. Richard 63256

As a part of my job I'm often parked on the side of busy and country roads. With small emergency flashers on my car. iIt has been difficult for oncoming traffic to see me. I put the light up on my roof with it on flash mode. Due to its size and brightness I'v'e notice cars slowing down sooner and giving me more space. Glad I bought it. 13756

Ask the Experts about this Custer Emergency Supplies

  • Will Custer Amber LED Safety Light # HF18A-HD Stay Attached on a Truck Driving 60 mph on a Highway
    According to my technical contact at Custer, the Amber LED Safety Light that will withstand a truck moving 60 mph is # HF18A-HD. This unit has two, 25-lb pull magnets which gives you 50-lbs of pull, which is plenty to stay connected while highway driving. The # HF18-MB that you referenced has two 10-lb pull magnets which are more for identification of your location when stranded or sitting on the side of the road.

  • Recommended Warning Light with Ability to View Front and Back
    The Sealed, 4" Round, Double Flash LED Warning Light, 22 Diode - Amber # SLL43AB1 and # SLL43AB2 are the only warning lights we have of that style and they are not double face as you mentioned. We don't have any that are double faced warning lights, but we do have other options that will allow viewing from both sides. The closest to the size/style you are looking for is the Custer Adjustable Emergency Light w/ Magnetic Base - LED - Amber # HF18A-MB but this is only single sided, so...

  • Is the Custer Adjustable Emergency Light # HF18A-MB Weatherproof
    The Custer Adjustable Emergency Light # HF18A-MB that you referenced is considered weatherproof which means that it will withstand the rain and inclement weather. In order for something to be considered waterproof it has to be able to be submerged underwater for a certain amount of time and still work.

  • Magnetic Battery Powered Lights to Be Mounted on a Trailer
    We do have some magnetic lights that operate on batteries. They're technically emergency lights but they have a constant shine setting. Of course they will not operate as brake or turn signals which I cannot recommend you tow your trailer without. A few examples: # HF18R-HD # HF18R-MB # HF18A-MB You might want to have your truck checked by a mechanic, if you haven't already. I know it will cost more money but if you're paying a shop to perform the repair it should solve the...

  • Emergency Battery Powered Trailer Light
    I believe what you are referring to would be something like the Pilot Magnetic Tow Lights # NV-5164. These are wireless and would bypass the trailer wiring. Or, for like an emergency flasher type light that is battery powered you would want the part # HF18A-MB or # HF18R-MB.

  • Recommendation for Magnetic Tow Lights That Can Be Used as Back-up Should Trailer Lights Fail
    It sounds to me like you are looking for a spare set of lighting that would allow you to move your trailer even if the trailer's lighting had failed. If this is the case, if your tow vehicle is equipped with a 4 way, I would recommend going with the Roadmaster Standard Magnetic Tow Lights, # RM-2120. These magnetic lights ensure that you have emergency flashers and the signal lights required for towing without having to tap into existing wiring. Just plug the lights in and you are ready...

  • Wiring Mopar Tow Bar Wiring Harness with Roadmaster Even Brake ICX Transmitter on 2007 Jeep Wrangler
    You need the wire that only has power when the brake pedal on the 2007 Jeep Wrangler is pressed. In your Mopar harness, use a circuit tester such as # 40376 to test the wires. The one that has power with the brake pedal and not at any other time (such as with a turn signal or running lights activated) will attach to the ICX transmitter on the Even Brake # RM-9400.

  • Can the Custer LED Amber Quad Flash Kit # CPL65A-STR be Surface Mounted
    The Custer LED Amber Quad Flash Kit, # CPL65A-STR, was not designed to be surface mounted. The sockets for the plug-in wiring harnesses protrude past the back of the light so they would not sit flat. The only surface mount flashing amber lights that we offer are magnetic lights like the Custer Adjustable Amber LED Emergency Light, # HF18A-MB. I have attached a link to all of our flashing warning lights for you to check out.
