Video Transcript for Pilot Brake Light Trailer Hitch Cover Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Pilot brake light trailer hitch receiver cover, part #CR-007. This 2" by 2" hitch receiver cover provides all the benefits of a regular hitch receiver cover, keeping out dirt and debris, with the added benefit of lighting up. It illuminates every time the brake pedal is depressed. It's powered by your vehicle's existing 4 pole and includes a foam gasket to help reduce rattle. It's constructed of a durable AVS plastic and the incandescent bulb is easily replaceable. Now that we've gone over the features, let me go ahead and show you how easy it is to install. You'll need to provide your own pin and clip.

If you don't have one, that's okay, you can find one here at etrailer.com, part #PC3. Let's go ahead and feed into our receiver tube and line up our pin holes. That looks pretty good. Then we'll just take our pin and clip, put that through, add our clip, then we can grab our 4 pole connection, simply plug it in and then we've got it. Let's test it out.

Works great. That's going to complete our look at the Pilot brake light trailer hitch receiver cover, part #CR-007. You can find this and everything else right here at etrailer.com. What's up man.

Nice little $10 unit. i put it on my wife's SUV for extra safety for the kids. It also keeps the receiver clean, and the light plug protected. 221644

Neat light - for 2" box. Adds safety, and is an eye catcher. Quirk: blinks with right side turn only. Easy to use, and comes pre-wired. 862

I bought this for my RAM truck and to maybe get other people to notice the brake light. Excellent quality item and easy to fix up. Thanks etrailer. Awesome customer service. 303645

The changed this from 4 pins-- Which would come on when you turned on your Daytime or Headlights!!! Would also blink when either the Left or Right Turn Signal was turned on. Now just the Right Signal will work.. Why....etrailer.com Cheaped out and only ran 2 wires verses 4 Wires.. Sooo Not happy... I have purchased Twice Before without a problem.. Now We have Problem... I will be sending this Item back.. Mark 425716


Comments

Mark,Thank you for your review on CR-007. CR-007 is a 2 wire system that only illuminates when the brake pedal is pressed or right turn signal is activated. If you need a brake and tail light that connects to the 4 way connector. I would recommend part CR-007A. This light illuminates when running lights are on and brightens when brake pedal is pressed.

Excellent Product First I was nerveous about buying etrailer... I had never heard about the company. Then, I took my chances after speaking with a friendly customer service person... The quick delivery exceeded my expectations!!! They told me Friday, I got the product one day earlier on Thursday. The Product: Easy & Easy to install (My car had hooks for it already). The results were remarkable. For once, I called etrailer customer service, and confirmed my satisfaction... Great service so far./. 3084

Review from a similar Pilot Automotive Light-Up in Hitch Covers


Wiring Harness is not wrapped, just a bundle of loose wires, harness needs to be longer as plug location varies among vehicles, not long enough to route and hide most of the wiring behind the license plate. Not enough room behind lights to install hitch pin with a lock, had to order a basic hitch pin without a lock. Functionally it works as advertised, but loose wires hanging in front of license plate looks less than professional. 593724

I'm a little disappointed that the light is all plastic, otherwise it would rate as excellent. I'll just have to wait and see if there's a durability issue 60126

The light is still working great, and there seems to be no problem with durability.

I bought them for Christmas gifts one is from my daughter one is for my nephew they make what a young driver is doing more visible twice as many blinkers four times as many brake lights four times as many emergency flashers if they’re stuck on the side of the road it’s a no brainer if you have a child driving 590954

Thus far great. The hitch cover looks good. I was a little nervous when I put it together it looked cheap but after I put it together and installed it. Yes very nice

Should have left and right as arrows. Instructions don’t tell you what to do with the mystery box attached to the wires. 567487

by:

Review from a similar Pilot Automotive Light-Up in Hitch Covers


The stem that goes into the hitch receiver is way too short. When I put a pin in the hole to hold the light assembly from coming out there is very little clearance for the electrical wires. The wires will be stressed and eventually wear out. 378853

Review from a similar Pilot Automotive Light-Up in Hitch Covers


Just got the product today 7/30/2018. Very easy to hook up and it looks very good on my 2004 GMC CANYON. I had recently changed the brake/turn signals lights to LED bulbs because the factory bulbs get too hot and were melting the lenses. The LED bulbs corrected that, but it caused the turn signals to "hyper flash". The CR-007XLAM solved that problem. Also helps to improve safety when braking or using your turn signals. Wonderful product, well made and works like a charm! 548479

this is #2 skull, my truck was hit in the back by a ford SUV. had to replace tailgate, bumper, trailer hitch and the skull. it looks grate on the black Dodge 1500 RAM. the only thing I wish it would do is blink one eye when turning. 575869

First time customer, first time writing a review like this. My order was mistakenly swapped with someone else's. Ok, mistakes happen. Company re-shipped item when notified but the shipping clock had to start over from ground zero - they would not, to any extent, expedite the order to try and cover their mistake. Then we received an automated invitation link to write this review, presumably unaware my order hasn't even arrived yet. Next time other sites 481216

The Bully oval light works great, fit perfectly, and fills the receiver hitch with flare and purpose. I am considering buying another one for an auxiliary light for my motorcycle. 70037

Review from a similar Pilot Automotive Light-Up in Hitch Covers


This was the ONLY lighted trailer hitch receiver cover that I could find to fit a 1-1/4” hitch receiver! It comes with 2 different mounting brackets, 1-1/4” or 2”. They screw on to the back of the light. Went together easily. Arrived quickly after ordering. Since I have been rear-ended 4 times by distracted drivers, I have noticed other vehicles with lighted hitch covers are much easier to spot while braking, so I decided to try this. I feel safer already. THANKS! 572167

Both this hitch light and eTrailer have been great. I’ve ordered a couple over the years. The last one ordered was a replacement for one I’d had for several years - but backed into a high stump and shattered it. The light is bright and easy to see; it easily connects to the wiring harness and can be removed / reinstalled quickly when towing my utility trailer. An excellent product. 569369

Been almost two years now and the light is holding up without a problem. Ive had others comment on how good it looks. Enough to put a lock on it so it can not be stolen. No problems with police in Michigan or Florida, but then again Im not responding to an emergency.Quote from Bob:This lighted hitch cover is illegal in Florida due to the fact that it has blue lights. State Statute 316.2397 2 prohibits the use of blue lights for any vehicle or equipment except police vehicles or the Department of Corrections when responding to emergencies.

I really like this product..It comes on with brakes and running lights and flashes with turn signals when brake is pressed..It dresses up the back of the Jeep and hopefully will give extra notice to drivers behind.. 109356


Comments

I am still happy with the trailer hitch tail light..It keeps the hitch clean and gives an extra light for other drivers to see..It has been on the Jeep for a year and it still actually works and looks like new..

Review from a similar Pilot Automotive Light-Up in Hitch Covers


I wanted to dress up the 1 1/4" hitch receiver that came with my new Subaru Forester with the addition of a new cover. I thought one with lights that connected to the vehicle trailer light harness would make it a practical and beneficial addition as well. This was the only product I found that would fit that size receiver. I found this product to be exactly as advertised and easy to configure and install. LED lights are bright in both day and night. The 1 1/4" hitch receiver adapter fits fairly well with little movement and the included foam gasket helps prevent the attachment screws from scratching paint off the receiver. The long wire lead made it easy to attach to the wiring harness on my vehicle. It is so long that I actually wound it around the hitch receiver tube a couple of times before connecting to keep it from hanging down. However, using the holes molded in the adapter to insert the hitch pin through left the light sticking out fairly far from the bumper of my Subaru Forester; at least the width of 2 of the included gaskets. Enough distance to have me bumping my legs into it when loading and unloading. It also made me worried the light maybe more easily damaged at some point. To solve this problem I removed the hitch pin, pushed the light further into the receiver till the included gasket was just touching both receiver and light and then marked the pin location on the plastic. I then removed the adapter and drilled a new, proper size hole using my drill press. Now the light sits further back and out of the way and also is less likely to get damaged. In this new position I think the light looks better and it is still easily visible to drivers behind me. If I had the opportunity to improve this product I would make the light body and adapters out of metal and have a 3rd hole molded in the location where I made my modification to the original. Overall, it is meeting my needs and expectations, it works as advertised and it was a good value. The product was shipped quickly after order and arrived in good condition; packed well to avoid damage in transit. Based on my experiences to date, I would buy other products from etrailer.com in the future. 178599
