Optronics BUL53 Series LED Backup Light Diagram

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.

Video Transcript for Optronics Trailer Lights - Tail Lights - BUL53CB Review

Today, we're going to be reviewing part number BUL53CB. This is the sealed, 4 inch round LED, clear trailer back up light, from Optronics. The clear round light is going to function as a back up light. It's going to feature a sealed, waterproof housing and lens unit, with a corrosion resistant design. It's going to contain 36 LED's. Here, on the back side, you're going to see the connection point.

This is designed to accept the industry standard two prong plug, making it very simple to upgrade from incandescent lights. I said two prong plug, even though you're going to see three prong connection here on the back of the housing. Optronics applies all the same housing and connections to their round 4 inch lights. Even though it only requires a two prong plug, it's still going to have three connection points on it, but the two prong plug that we offer, it is going to be sold separately. You can find that with part number A45CB.

It is going to cover up all three connection points. That way, it's going to keep any dirt and grime from getting into the connections. Again, it only calls for a two prong plug. This is a system that's designed to flush mount with the mounting grommet. It's also going to be sold separately. You can find that right here on our website, with part number A45GB.

The dimensions of this unit, when it comes to the diameter, it's going to give us an overall diameter of 4 5/16ths of an inch, with an overall depth of right at 2 inches. This light is going to draw 0.228 amps at 12.8 volts. We're going to go ahead and make the connection point, that way you can see what the light looks like with power running to it and with our overhead lights turned off. I've got the two prong plug here. You can see here that it's just going to use two connections, but it does cover up that third connection point, to keep any dirt and grime from getting in there.

You can see here, that when the reverse function is applied, it's going to send out a nice, consistent LED signal. Again, the light's going to contain 36 LED's. That clear lens allows a lot of that white light to come through. That's going to do it for today's review of part number BUL53CB. This is the sealed, 4 inch round LED clear trailer back up light, from Optronics. .

Items arrived as described. Good quality, price and fast delivery made this purchase an overall great deal. The lights and the cables I haven’t test them, waiting for my truck replacement bumper to arrive in September and have the body shop install them for me.

Ask the Experts about this Optronics Trailer Lights


  • Mounting Hole Size for Optronics 4 Inch Round Back Up Lamp # BUL53CB
  • When used with the # A45GB grommet, a 4-1/2 inch diameter hole is needed to flush-mount the Optronics 4 inch Round LED Trailer Back Up Light # BUL53CB.

  • Wire Color Codes for Optronics 3 Wire Taillight Wiring Pigtail
  • On a three wire pigtail that's being used on a stop/turn/taillight, the red wire carries the brake/turn signal circuit, the black wire carries the running lamp circuit and the white wire provides the ground connection. The # BUL53CB lamp you mentioned is a single function lamp only, for that particular lamp, you'd use a 2 wire pigtail, like part # A45CB. On the 2 wire pigtail, red carries the power to the lamp, the white wire is the ground connection.

  • Wire Pigtail for Optronics 4 Inch Round LED Trailer Reverse Light
  • Although the rear of the lamp features three pins, only two of them are active which is why the 2-prong pigtail is called for (see photo). My guess is rather than design a separate back for lights that only need the 2 pin pigtail, Optronics finds it more cost effective to use a single back for all their 4 inch round lights.

  • What Is The Amperage Draw On The Optronics 55-Watt Halogen Utility Light # QH36CTS
  • The amp draw is 4.5 amps per light or 9 amps for both lights on the Optronics 55-Watt Halogen, Multi-Directional, Area Utility Light # QH36CTS. If used on your 2004 Chevy Silverado you will need to use the Draw-Tite Wiring Kit # 118151. This kit will allow you to run a separate 12 gauge wire with a 10 amp in-line fuse to the positive side of the vehicles battery. This will keep the lights from drawing power on your factory wiring harness which could cause problems. You will also want...

  • Are LED Lights with More Diodes Brighter and Can a Trailer Backup Light be Used on a Truck
  • It is pretty safe to assume that the more diodes in an LED light the brighter it will be. The only time that is not necessarily true is if one light has large diodes and the other doesn't. But any way you slice it light # BUL53CB and its 36 diodes is going to be bright. In this case, for all intents and purposes, a 4-5/16 inch and 4-1/4 inch diameter won't make a difference. The light can be used on your truck. In fact a lot of people use lights like this and other trailer lights...

  • Can I use a Halogen Spotlight as a Reverse Light to See Better Behind my Horse Trailer
  • These will certainly provide enough light. My concern would be that they provide too much light and would considered rear-facing headlights. There are DOT restrictions about how bright rear-ward facing lights can be so as drivers behind you are not blinded. The Custer Halogen Light you were looking at does not comply with this regulation. I would suggest instead, using brighter reverse lights. We have several backup LED lights that will be brighter than standard incandescent lights,...

  • What is the Brightest 12 Volt Fully Submersible Backup Light Available
  • If you are looking for a round backup light then I recommend part # BUL53CB but if you are looking for an oval backup light then I recommend part # BUL52CB. Both of these backup lights are completely submersible. The round light has 36 diodes with a 275 candella rating and the oval light has 36 diodes with a 175 candella rating therefore the round light will be a bit brighter than the oval light. In order to mount the round light you will also need part # A45GB or part # A70GB for the...

  • Installation of Extra Reverse Lights on 2006 Ford F-250
  • The amp draw is 4.5 amps per light or 9 amps for both lights on the Optronics 55-Watt Halogen, Multi-Directional, Area Utility Light # QH36CTS. With that much amperage draw I would not recommend to connect them to your factory wiring harness. It could cause overloading problems and damage your vehicles wiring harness. If you want to install the 55-watt lights on your 2006 Ford F-250 you will need to use the Draw-Tite Wiring Kit # 118151. This kit will allow you to run a separate 12 gauge...

  • What Amperage Value Fuse to Use When Running Two Optronics LED Trailer Lights # BUL53CB
  • Since the Optronics LED Trailer Light # BUL53CB draws only 0.228-amperes, two of them can be fused with as low as a 5-amp fuse (few vehicles will have any lighting circuit fused below a 5-amp value). You should not have to worry about compatibility due to power draw, which is quite moderate for all LED type lights as compared to the incandescent type.
