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


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

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 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

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..

I have owned this product for about a decade but it got broken when I backed up to a curb. There are many places that sell lights like this but not of this quality. A careful reading of reviews will show that often the electronic circuit board is exposed via the hitch. I can't imagine that a light would last long being exposed to everything that gets splashed in the trailer hitch area. This light is totally sealed and it is made so that it does not blink when your signals are used, a feature that many of its competitors cannot say. I've had many compliments on the light. No, it is not the cheapest light available but when you buy quality you don't expect it to be. It is competitively priced and that's good enough for me. 854320

I’m impressed with my order. The merchandise is of good quality and eye appeal. The only issue was the lighted—eyed skill head. The mounting attachment holes were and little to small. My husband was able to make them wider now everything thing is working find. Great Merchandise! 850908

After a multi year search, I finally found exactly what I was looking for. This is awesome! It fits multiple receivers, great design, quality materials, easy to install and gives me the extra protection I was looking for given the extra distractions of today's drivers. I have had it for over a year and I can highly recommend it. Plu6, etrailer has been great, very reasonable pricing and came faster than the estimate. I really like the brightness and alternate flashing between this and the regular turn signal when making a turn or lane change. Plus the extra brake light in a non-standard location to get the attention of the driver behind me. 811596

Having bought the other one through etrailer I found that it leaked poorly. My choice was to have safety on my RV therefore I purchased a different style but sealed it all the way around so it would not leak and fail. So far so good. 791807

Bright light adds another level of visibility to my vehicle. Have one on each or the SUV's with hitches. 775397

A year ago I purchased this hitch light. It still is in excellent shape and works every time I push on the brake pedal. IMHO It adds to the safety factor,another indication to vehicles behind me that I’m slowing down or stopping. It is very bright and yet small enough to stay out of the way when I have the SUV tail gate open. I have removed the hitch light numerous times so that I could use the hitch for towing. It is very easy to remove and reinstall. I recommend this to anyone who is looking for the right light. Sorry no picture. 774431

Light worked as described but my hitch receiver is fairly low to the ground causing the light to drag on the pavement when backing out of driveways. This said the plastic section that goes into the hitch receiver broke. 732704

I just installed this on my Subaru Forester. The fit using the outside bracket was a bit tight so I used the inner one instead. I also reduced its length by cutting it with an ordinary saw. My wife wants one for here Crosstrek so I am pleased enough with mine to order one for her too. 694479
