A towed car is required by law to have functional brake and signal lights that illuminate at the same time as the brake and signal lights on the RV that is towing it. Most wiring kits require you to splice into your vehicle's electrical system to install diodes, but doing this can void your manufacturer's warranty. You also run the risk of making a mistake during installation that could result in potentially damaging electrical feedback. Magnetic tow lights eliminate this problem because they bypass your car's electrical system entirely and leave your wiring intact. Just mount the lights on your vehicle's trunk or roof with the heavy-duty magnetic bases. Then run the wiring harness up to the front of your towed car, across your tow bar, and then connect it to the 4-way flat on your motor home or tow vehicle. If your tow vehicle doesn't have a 4-way, an adapter is required.


This kit includes a 20' long wishbone-style wiring harness with a 4-way flat connector on the end. A separate 3' wiring harness with a 4-way plug can be used to install a 4-way on your tow vehicle or RV if it does not already have a trailer connector. Quick-splice connectors are included if needed. A 4-1/2' long harness connects both lights, giving you enough slack to position the lights where you want them.

Video Transcript for Optronics Heavy Duty Magnetic Tow Lights Review

Announcer: Today we'll be taking a look at the Optronics Heavy Duty Magnetic Tow Lights for a 4 flat trailer connector, part number TL21RK.Demonstrater: Here's what it looks like once it's installed. They have a nice, sturdy base, magnetic base, that's going to make it stay on the car. They are designed to fit into a 4 flat on the back of your RV. You're going to have 1 single red light on each side. It's going to act as your turn signal, your tail light, and your brake light. It will affix to any metal surface, such as your roof or a trunk.

It's a very easy, quick install. In this case, we are adding them in unison with the tow package that we have that uses the factory tail lights. In this case, our customer has a bike rack attached to the back of their towed vehicle. We want to make sure that people are able to see their tail lights, which might be obstructed a little bit by our bike rack, so we're going to have a little added security by having the lights on the roof as well. This is what our kit is going to consist of. Our 2 magnetic lights, 20 feet of cable to attach to your vehicle, 4 flat. It also comes with a 3 foot harness of your vehicle is not equipped with a 4 flat connector that you can tie into with the provided quick connects. Now, let me run over some features I'm going to go ahead and show you how to install them.

We're going to take our left light, which is the one with the single wire, denoted with the yellow, place it on our car. You want to just place it and let it snap down. Careful not to drag it across your paint, possibly scratching it. Then we can place our right turn signal on. Then we ca start running our wire to the front of our vehicle.

We went ahead and attached the wiring and bunched it up in the middle of our car with a zip tie just to keep it all together, and we just went ahead and routed it along our roof rack. We kind of weave in and out to zig-zag it and keep it from falling off the side of the car. Brought it down, we put it between the windshield wiper and the arm, just to keep it in place so it can't some off the sides. We went underneath our guardian, following our towed vehicle wiring harness, then plugged it into our 4 flat receptacle. Now we can test our running lights, our left turn signal, and our right turn signal, and our brakes. That's going to do it for a look at the Optronics Heavy Duty Magnetic Tail Lights for a 4 flat trailer connector, part number TL21RK.

They say that a company is only as good as its employees... Well, etrailer is extremely fortunate to have someone like Shawn B. Working for them! This young lady got me out of a really frustrating predicament, and through careful listening and asking the right questions, she saved me not only a ton of money, but a whole bunch of frustration as well! My dilemma was that I had purchased a Jeep Liberty with a Blue Ox base plate, but I had a Blackhawk 2 tow bar! I thought I was going to have to go out and buy a Blue Ox tow bar to use with the Blue Ox base plate, but through careful review of my situation, and a calm analytical approach, this young lady determined exactly what I needed in the way of adapters and a towing light set up! Today, more than ever, it's all about customer service, and that is exactly what she provided for me! 463012

works great for towing my jeep. just plug the four flat into the factory trailer wiring on the tow vehicle, set the lights on the bumper and they work perfect. the magnets are strong but the thicker the metal they are on the better they hold. steel on my bumper is thick enough for a strong hold but I tried thinner metal and the hold is weaker so you may need to add some straps 211070

I am using these for added visibility on the back of a large bike rack that pretty much stays on the car all the time. I do not suggest using the magnets as the only form of attachment as they are not strong enough to keep the lights attached when going over bumps. I zip-tied them to the frame of the bike rack. At first, I had them sticking out from the bottom of the rack, and they were fine until I went up a steep hill and one of the lights got knocked off on the road. These lights are extremely well-built because instead of snapping the light, the rather large zip-ties broke. The light still works great after the incident. I now have them sticking out the sides to give more ground clearance, and they seem to be doing fine. For my application, I had to replace the wire between the lights with a longer one, but that was not difficult and will not be necessary in a typical application. At least the lights are easy to disassemble to access the wiring. The only way these could be improved would be to add strong neodymium magnets and to make the red lenses screw on (instead of snapping on) for easier access to the bulbs for replacement. Otherwise, a perfect product. For the record, I did not need to use the included vehicle wiring harness or splice connectors, since my application required an electronic light controller. 53035

Perfect, just what we needed to get our trailer home from storage so I could work on the finding the root cause for the failure of the permanent trailer lights. Now that the permanent lights have been fixed, the temporary magnetic lights are stored with the trailer sort of like a spare tire, knowing how fiddly trailer wiring can sometimes be. It's worth the small investment for the extra measure of safety in case the permanent trailer lights fail again far from home. 82108

Attached to a bed extender for kayak hauling. Magnets are strong enough but used zip ties as extra security precaution. My vehicle is prewired for flat or round connection. Lights were all "plug and play" for me. Served my purpose very well. 161810

Looks like it will do the job. One problem the length of wire between the two lights is just 1 inch too short for my purpose. I plan to put it on my truck at the end of the bumpers. I guess I will have to splice some wire. Otherwise it looks well built 503455

After struggling with my trailer lighting system for years, I gave up and bought a portable system from etrailer. Within 5 minutes of unwrapping it, everything worked great and I am not longer spending hours trying to trouble shoot the old system. The magnets that hold the lights on the trailer are very strong, but I still use a bungy cord on each one just in case I hit a large bump in the road. Thanks etrailer, excellent product! 295763

The magnets didn't stay on the car so I ended up permanently gluing them to my roof since we tow our car behind the rv full time. Had to replace the bulbs with LED bulbs since our rv tail lights couldn't supply enough voltage to the incandescent bulbs to see them in daytime. This isn't a failure of the product but rather an undiagnosed voltage problem with our rv. With those modifications I am happy with it. 455021

etrailer was easy to order from and shipping was fast. However, I ordered this specific light set to fit my standard 4-way flat connection that already exists on my trailer and did not plan on doing any wiring on my truck. Unfortunately, it does not fit. I will have to buy a converter or something I guess. I emailed them with this issue asking if this light is not a standard 4-way flat and haven't received a response. Seems to be a nice sturdy light set. Doesn't help when I can't use it, though. 413367

The product itself is well made and reliable. However, I didn't realize how much the wire laying across the hood of my dinghy would move while driving. This resulted in significant buffing of the surface that required several rounds of compounding to remove. I have since moved to a wireless unit. If you plan on using this product, I would recommend running the wires under the hood or taping them down in a way that doesn't damage your dinghy's surface. 376471

Speed of delivery was great and the product was exactly what I expected. Surprisingly, the magnets hold really well, I was concerned the lights might fall off when I went over a large bump. The wiring was smaller/thinner grade than the wiring in my vehicle, but that did not present any issues. All in all, this was worth the small investment. Quick and easy. 205882

  • Wiring to Flat Tow a 2019 Jeep Wrangler Behind a Motorhome
  • Magnetic tow lights, like part # TL21RK, do their job just fine, are less expensive, and don't require much to setup so they're not a bad option by any means. The only real drawbacks to them is that you need to set them up or take them off each time you change from towing to driving the Jeep. They also have a chance of scratching the Jeep's paint since they're being attached to its surface each time. We often recommend them if you're not going to be towing the vehicle very often or if...

  • Can a 2017 Chevy Colorado be Flat Towed?
  • Yes, you can flat tow your 2017 Chevy Colorado so long as it has a Four-Wheel Drive Low setting. There are a number of things you will need to flat tow, starting with base plates. If your Colorado does not have Adaptive Cruise Control, I recommend going with the Roadmaster EZ5 Base Plate Kit # RM-523182-5. If you do have Adaptive Cruise Control or your Colorado is a Z71 Trail Boss or ZR2 model you would need to go with the Blue Ox Base Plate Kit # BX1721. For a tow bar, a great option...

  • Demco Tabless base plate kit # DM9519340 is a great starting point for your 2019 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk's flat towing setup so long as the Jeep has factory tow hooks and a transfer case with a neutral position.

  • Tow Bar and Other Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2013 Ford F-150 Behind a Class C Motorhome
  • The first thing to do is to check your owner's manual to make sure the 2013 Ford F-150 can be flat towed without causing it any damage. From my research it can as long as it has 4-wheel drive. The rear wheel drive cannot; at least not without adding after market parts for the transmission. If this is the case for your truck then I recommend talking to a Ford dealership before flat towing it. If you are able to flat tow your truck then there are several parts you need. You need the...

  • Is There a Speed Limit for the Curt Tow Bar with Adjustable-Width Arms C19745
  • If you will be doing a one time only move from California to Texas then I suggest a cost effective tow bar like the Curt Tow Bar with Adjustable-Width Arms part # C19745. In order to install this towbar you will need to remove the bumper and attach it to the vehicle's core support somewhere. There are no speed restrictions for tow bars like the above. If a speed restriction is present, it will be from the owner's manual to protect the vehicle. The Curt Tow Bar will maintain its warranty...

  • Recommendations on Flat Towing a 2017 Honda Fit with a Manual Transmission.
  • According to the Owner's Manual, the 2017 Honda Fit is towable behind a motorhome if it has the manual transmission. The Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) model cannot be flat towed. The base plate that I recommend for the Honda Fit is the Blue Ox Base Plate Kit # BX2261. The Blue Ox base plate is a custom fit piece that is hidden beneath the vehicle's body. Blue Ox also provides all the hardware needed. Blue Ox does state that the bumper fascia will have to be removed and...
