Optronics BUL35 Series DOT LED Back Up Light Dimensions

Sonically Sealed, Waterproof Trailer Light

The waterproof construction of this light makes it ideal for use on trailers that may be submerged, like a boat trailer. The housing and lens are sonically sealed together to create a single unit, which means that water will not get into the light and damage the diodes or circuit board.


Recessed-Mount Light

Recessed-mount trailer lights install underneath a housing or a grommet. These lights will extend into the mounting surface and require that a hole be cut into your trailer.

Video Transcript for Optronics Trailer Lights - Tail Lights - BUL35CB Review

Today we're going to be reviewing part number BUL35CB. This is the Optronics LED Back Up Light. It's going to have a flush mount design. The sealed flush mounted clear LED back up light is waterproof and corrosion resistant. It's going to contain 16 diodes featuring a polycarbonate housing and lens. This unit can be installed horizontally or vertically. Here on the back you can see that it has a three-prong connection, but it's only going to require the industry standard two-prong plug.

Even though it has a three-prong connection it's only going to use two functions so it just needs the ground connection and then it just needs the circuit for the reverse light. So instead of making just a completely separate two-prong acceptance plug on the back of the housing, they go ahead and include the there-prong. The two-prong plug which I'll show you in a minute will seal up all the connections so you don't have to worry about that. This does require the mounting grommet and the plug to complete your installation. Those are going to be sold separately. A couple different options you have when it comes to the plugs, you can find a straight 2-wire pigtail with part number A45CB here on our website, or a right angle, 2-wire pigtail with part number A49PB.

If you need to pick up a mounting grommet you can find that right here at etrailer.com using part number A33GB. This unit is certified for a back up light function when installed in a pair in a two lamp system. If we take a look at the overall dimensions it's going to give us an overall length of 5-5/16" an overall width of 3-7/16" and then the depth is going to measure about 2-5/16". We're going to go ahead and hook this up to our external power supply that way you can see what it looks like with power running to it and with our overhead lights turned off. You see here that I have our 2-wire plug. I'm simply going to take this, connect it here at the back of the housing, just push it in. You can see how all three of those prongs are covered up by the two-way plug or the two-prong plug.

Now we'll go ahead and activate our reverse function and you can see there that it sends out a nice, consistent, pretty bright reverse function signal. Really quick response time. The LED are a great system to have in place. They last longer than incandescent lights. They burn brighter and they draw less power. That's going to do it for today's review of part number BUL35CB.

This is the Optronics LED Back Up Light. .

I have received the product and am very happy to say that the product is going to work for the application we needed it for. However we did have a question on if you could provide part numbers for us. We want to get the pig tail and the grommet for the lights we just purchased for us. Could you provide part numbers so we could get those ordered? 589176

I purchased this Optronics LED Backup Light to supplement the amount of reverse light that the T Bargman LED taillights provide. I installed them on a 1991 Ford E450 21 passenger church bus. This light is intended to be installed in a steel trailer frame with a rubber grommet which I did not order. I did not realize that a grommet was required. I probably would have ordered the grommets just in case I needed them but it was not made obvious to me on the website or recommended that I may want to consider including them in the order. After receiving the package and examining the light I realized that there was no way to secure the light into place without something. I went back to the website and looked up the light again and drilled down to the bottom and there it was, the grommet that I needed. Why didn't the site make the recommendation more obvious or suggest this part before ordering like it did with the wiring lead...? I was able to still make the lights work, it just took a little bit of planning which was required anyway with this custom retrofit application. I cut a precise hole into the fiberglass so that I could recess the light, which was my original plan even before realizing that the light required a grommet. I recessed the light in the hole and glued it in place with silicone. Time will tell if this was a good idea or not. I wish that I would have ordered the elbow wiring leads in stead of the straight ones. I ran into a clearance issue with the straight lead and had to modify them as well. 584173

Great service! Parts ordered arrived in record time, order was complete, and no problems. I had ordered same parts from another supplier, waited 5 weeks and when order arrived it only had one light not two as were ordered. Still having issues trying to get that order resolved. You guys make it easy, will get more orders from me as well as letting my friends know where to order from. Thanks 555644

Do you have a question about this Trailer Light?


  • Flush Mounted LED Lights for Flatbed Trailer
  • Thank you for the photos; based on what you showed, you would want oval LED lights that are in the 6-1/2" x 2" range, though you would need exact dimensions to ensure the right fit. For example, # STL72RB is a red oval light that measures 6-7/16" x 2-5/16" x 1-3/4" deep while # STL70RB is another red oval light but with dimensions of 6-1/2" x 2-1/4" x 1-1/8" deep. The same will apply for your white oval lights, such as the 6-1/2" L x 2-1/8" W x 1" # BUL72CB. The other lights look to...

  • Are Load Resistors Needed for Reverse LED Trailer Lights
  • You will not need load resistors to install the Optronics LED Backup Light for Truck or Trailer # BUL35CB; load resistors are not needed for reverse lights like these. The only thing you will need are Grommet # A33GB and a 2-wire pigtail, either part # A45CB or the right-angle pigtail, part # A49PB. I have added links for video reviews for you to check out as well.

  • Can Halogen Bulb Lights be Converted to LED Type Bulbs
  • Bulb types can often be changed as long as there is a compatible equivalent version and so long as the new type does not cause fit or temperature issues. You could not go from an LED to a halogen since the waste heat generated by halogen bulbs is fairly substantial and far more than what an LED light's housing might tolerate. The Pilot Bully Bumper Mount Backup Light # PL-807 uses a standard H3 type halogen bulb like # P250003W. We do offer halogen-to-LED upgrade bulb kits from Putco...

  • Can LED Backup Light, # BUL35CB, Be Used as a Fog Light
  • LED Backup Light, # BUL35CB, is designed for use as a reverse light and not a fog light. Different lights, if DOT approved, have to meet certain requirements for a given function. For a fog light kit you can use # QH-84CF. Each of these lights has a power wire and ground wire. The kit includes brackets, a switch, and the wiring along with the 2 lights.

  • Availability of White LED-Type Rectangular Backup Light
  • For a rectangular white LED-type backup light I suggest the Optronics Flush Mount LED Backup Light # BUL35CB. This recessed-mount light uses an industry-standard plug like # A45CB and a mounting grommet # A33GB. Please click on the video link for more.

  • Dimensions and Mounting Grommet Recommendation for the LED Back Up Light part # BUL35CB
  • I attached a picture of the LED Back Up Light part # BUL35CB that shows its dimensions. If you were planning on making a grommet to install these lights you could instead just get the Grommet part # A33GB as this grommet is specifically designed to fit this light.
