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.

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

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

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

You should let your customers know on latter models of F-150s, it will show bulb out message BEFORE they order the lighted hitch cover. I then ordered TR20141 to remedy this. Now my back up sensors will not work. I’ve disconnected it and used it as a unlighted $[$$] ford emblem. Very disappointing. 708071

Have had several of these for both cars. Is a little vulnerable to dragging thru ditches, driveways, etc. Reall7 lights your rear, better alerting vehicles behind. Great product~ 654198

Never any issue. Improvement would be to cover the wires all the way up to the plug. Maybe offer one with shorter wires so there is less excess. 665648

I like the product, but I was under the impression that it would light up with my taillights also and it does not. It only works with my brake lights. 611162

This dual lit trailer hitch cover is neat as H. The blue running lite is distinctive from all others and the red brake lite provides that extra bit of safety with it's bright lite. It was extremely easy to install. If you have a Ford with a trailer hitch and you don't get this, shame on you. Also get a locking hitch pin as someone will want to get this for free. Great customer service with these folks. 339329

This is my second Tri-Light that I have purchased from E-Trailer. I broke the first one and needed a replacement. The product is as described and works perfectly. It enhances the safety of my vehicle and is very visible to traffic behind me. I had recently installed LED lights in my truck and as a result of that it caused my turn signal lights to hyper flash. This Tri-Light solved that as soon as I plugged it in. It was very easy to install, even for this 80 year old man. I give it five stars. 610236

JUST AS A LOT OF THE OTHER REVIEWS STATES, YOU SHOULD BE INFORMED THAT THE PLUG DOES NOT REACH THE HOOK UP ON NEWER PICK-UPS. THAT WAY YOU KNOW WHEN THE ITEM COMES YOU CAN ORDER EXTENSION TO HOOK IT UP. BESIDES THAT THE LIGHT IS GREAT, NICE AND BRIGHT AND STANDS OUT VERY NICELY 402317

Great, today you need as much braking light as possible to get others attention that you are braking

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

Looked for this light hitch cover everywhere and this was the only place I could find it. Price was right. On the Edge and works great. Shipping was fast to my local UPS location 5 miles away, then 2 days to post office 1/4 mile from UPS and then not brought there early enough, so don't go out for delivery until the next day. 580604

Product arrived quickly. Product was as advertised. I had to trim the thickness of the rubber gasket in order to get the pin holes to line up with those in my receiver without creating undue pressure on the product. Best of all, my wife is pleased with it as it went on her vehicle. 423349

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

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

Looks great, easy to connect, highly re commended. 88393


Comments

Ive had one of these covers for some time and it worked just fine until I broke off the post on the connector. I have tried wiring it to a regular connector without any luck and my guess is it has something to do with the ground. Likely easier to get a new connector but am unable to find one any ideas?

-- comment by: Arnie - 11/11/2013

I have not seen any connectors sold individually that have the two pole setup that omit the yellow and brown wires. That being said, you should be able to splice a regular 4-pole in place, like part 18004. I would definitely recommend soldering and heat-shrinking the splice joints rather than using mechanical splices.

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

I'm really happy with the light, it adds a little snap, added safety and looks great at night. I used a stainless steel locking pin, to keep it in place and keep it from those who may envy it 450598

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

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..
