Built-In LED Testers Verify Connection

The Hopkins Smart Lights make it easy to diagnose faults in your trailer wiring. Each Smart Light has 3 separate LEDs on the side of the unit that act as test lights. These LEDs allow you to see if the tail light is receiving power, and if not, why.


The bottom LED (labeled "G") shows if there's a fault with the ground connection. A poor ground is the most common problem seen with trailer wiring. The bottom LED on the Smart Light will alert you to an improperly connected ground by flashing repeatedly. Check that your ground connection is properly set on a clean, unpainted metal area of your trailer's frame. If there is any rust or corrosion around the ring terminal itself, clean it off and reset the ground.


The top and center LEDs (labeled "S" and "T" respectively) are the testers for the stop/turn and tail light functions. If both of these LEDs light up, and the trailer light illuminates as well, then everything is working correctly and you're ready to tow.


As long as the center and top LEDs light up, power is getting to the light. So if these LEDs illuminate, but the trailer light itself does not, then a bulb must need to be replaced.


If only 1 of these LEDs lights up, then there is likely a problem with the connection for the circuit that is not illuminated. Check the wire associated with that function to determine the problem.


This Smart Light kit also includes a 4-way extension loop with LED test lights, which verify that your trailer is receiving power from your tow vehicle. Like with the Smart Lights' LED test lights, the 4-way extension loop's LEDs are each labeled with a specific wiring function to make troubleshooting fast and easy.


If a function is receiving power from the tow vehicle, the LED on the 4-way connector will illuminate red. If the connector's LEDs illuminate red, but the LEDs on the Smart Lights do not, then there is a problem with your trailer's wiring. If the LEDs do not illuminate red on the 4-way or on the Smart Light, then there is a problem with your tow vehicle's wiring.


With this kit, there's no need to spend precious time figuring out why your connection isn't working. Simply check the LEDs, fix the issue, and you're ready to go.


Easy-Pull 4-Way Connector Is Easy to Grip and Pull

Easy Pull

The extension loop included in this kit features a Hopkins' Easy-Pull handle on the trailer-end plug. Standard 4-way flat plugs have a small surface area to grip when you are pulling them apart, forcing you to wriggle the plugs back and forth to loosen them. Some users even pull on the wires. This can lead to broken terminals or ripped wiring.


With this Easy-Pull extension loop, the trailer-end plug has a large grip ring designed to make disconnecting a snap. Simply slide your finger into the ring and pull the plug away from the opposite plug to disconnect.


Easy Pull Rings

The Easy-Pull is also available as a vehicle-end 4-way flat plug. Combine the Easy-Pull trailer-end plug on this harness with the vehicle-end plug, and you'll get the easiest possible disconnection. With ring handles on both connectors, disconnecting is as simple as gripping the rings and pulling straight apart. No wriggling, no broken terminals, and no damaged wires.


Combination Lights for Trailers Over 80" Wide

Flatbed trailer over 80" wide with combination tail lights

If a trailer is 80" or wider at its widest point, then it requires rear clearance lights in addition to basic trailer lights. These clearance lights indicate the width of the trailer when it is viewed from the back.


To meet these requirements on a flatbed utility trailer where the bed extends past the wheels, you can install combination trailer lights that include the rear clearance function. For proper mounting, the lights must be installed at the widest points on the rear of the trailer - one on each corner.

Video Transcript for Hopkins Trailer Lights - Tail Lights - HM69601SK Review

Speaker 1: Today, we're taking a look at the Hopkins Smart Light trailer tail lights. These trailer lights serve eight functions for your trailer, such as your stop light, tail light, turn signal, side marker, side reflux reflector, rear reflux reflector, rear clearance. On the driver's side light, we do have the license plate lens here at the bottom, which allow light to come through to illuminate the license plate area. Now, the unique feature about this system is that they feature built in test lights on each unit, so it's gonna let you troubleshoot issues quickly and easily. So, on each side of the main light we have a S, T and a G. This really helps eliminate the amount of time spent trying to diagnose trailer wiring issues.

The S is for stop and turn signal, so if lit that means that power is present. T equals tail lights. If lit, that means power is present, and G is ground. If that's flashing that means that you have a bad ground on that unit.It also comes with a four way tester, which shows that you trailer is receiving power from your tow vehicle. The units feature a submersible construction, which is ideal for boat trailers.

These are incandescent bulbs that are easily replaceable when and if needed. The lights accept the industry standard three prong plugs located right here on the back. The PL-3 pigtail harnesses are included for trailers that don't already have existing plugs. And then each plug has a three wire design in which case white is your ground, red is for stop and turn light and then black is for your tail lights. Also, the tester right here functions as a easy pull extension loop, which can increase the length of your connection.

So, we have the ring handle, which makes it easy to pull the connector straight back for proper leverage, making sure you don't damage the connection terminals on the unit.So, this side will plug into the vehicle, this side will plug into your trailer wiring and then again, it also functions as a tester to show that your trailer is receiving power from your tow vehicle. So, we have that ring handle. Also, it has a wide handle, which makes it easy to grip the connector. Each unit is inaudible 00:02:12 installation with the included mounting studs. So, it comes with a foam gasket, mounting studs and brand new installation nuts.

That's the same for each unit. This kit is SAE and department of transportation compliant. We're gonna go over the measurement and then we'll hook it up to power so you can see what it looks like with power running to it. Now, each unit measures about six and three eighths inches wide by about four and a half inches tall by two and nine sixteenth inches deep. The mounting studs on the back are separated on the center by two inches.I'm gonna go ahead and hook one of them up to power that way you can see what it looks like with power running to it. I'm gonna do that on the driver side light. So again, the black wire is for our tail lights, white wire is for ground and then red it gonna be for stop and turn. So you can see here that the unit sends out a nice, consistent signal. We have the side light, the main light and then on the bottom we have light that comes through to illuminate the license plate. When we apply our brakes you can see how the signal output increases. It does that same thing when we activate our turn signals. Overall, they're really nice lights. Again, they contain incandescent bulbs and with this part number you get the four way tester, you get both smart lights. One for the passenger side and one for the driver's side.That's gonna do it for today's look at the Hopkins Smart Light trailer tail lights.
