Optronics LED Trailer License Plate Light w/ Bracket - 5 Diodes - Clear Lens - LPL55CB

Average Customer Rating:  4.6 out of 5 stars   (278 Customer Reviews)

8-5/8" x 3-1/4". LED trailer light with ABS mounting bracket illuminates your license plate. Durable polycarbonate lens and housing. Surface mount to trailer with bracket. 2-Wire design.

by:

Based on other reviews of these lights, I had no doubt that they would be brighter than the Bargman Series 92 incandescent lights that came standard on my trailer. The issue was whether or not the 12-13 degree return slope on the back of my trailer (see picture) would adversely affect their visibility because some LED lights are "directional. The bottom line is that I think they work very well despite the slight downward aim. The attached video shows my test of one of the new lights taped into position (right) compared to one of the old lights (left). The video does not due justice to the brightness of the new fixture, but you can clearly see how much sharper the "flash" of the light is compared to the old one. Two notes regarding installation; (1) there is very little space in the back of the fixture for wires so you need to be able to center the fixture on the whole in the trailer to push extra wire into, and (2) yo can configure these lights to be 1/2 stop/tail and 1/2 turn/tail if your trailer is wired appropriately.

Product worked perfectly for what we were using it for. I purchased a motorcycle and needed to move the license plate bracket to be able to add bags. I found your bracket online, knowing we were going to have to jerry rig it to where we wanted to mount it. I was a little suprised the bracket was plastic when I received it, but still worked great. A friend made 2 mounting brackets from a flat bar, cutting and bending them to the length and angle we needed. Drilled holes and mounted them under the rear fender. Mounted the license plate bracket on the other ends of the custom brackets and wired it in for lights.




by:

This item is made of rugged plastic and will not rust out in a few years like the one that I had to replace and because of the LEDs, I won't have to search for a little filament that burned out or a rusty lamp socket. As we know , trailer lighting always fails at the worst possible time!




by:

This is one of the few license plate lights that would work for me. As you can see in the picture I have it mounted on top of the license plate, above the lamp. The attached bracket made for an easy installation. The wires were kind of short (about 8") because of the way I mounted it so I had to extend to wires.

I did not want to mount my plate on the bottom of the tail lamp assembly to utilize the built-in license plate light because it was to low to the ground and was always dragging loading and unloading the trailer. The product made an easy DIY modification to keep me on the good side of the men and women in blue.




by:

This worked very well to mount and light my license plate when I removed the OEM lights that had an integrated mounting for the plate. It was easy to mount and wire to the existing trailer license plate lighting circuit. I'm very pleased with the finished result.


Comments
It has worked perfectly. Illuminates the license plate and provides a mounting point.

Just wanted to tell you that I have finally installed the product I ordered
from etrailer.com, and I must say that it is by far the best product I have
ever used. They are bright, and very visible even during daytime. Attached is the finished product that I installed on my travel trailer. I
hope that other consumer like me will find this very helpful to buy from
etrailer.com.

Perfect replacement for my motorhome mounted in the same holes and has a ground wire.

Exceptional and inexpensive LED-lit license plate mount/bracket.
I ordered this item (online) on a Sunday, and received a human confirmation e-mail that evening! Item was shipped the next day (Monday). Very Easy installation. Photos (3) attached. If you need an illuminated license plate bracket, BUY THIS ONE!

The light worked perfectly for my needs. I am very happy with it

All is well. Thanks
Rich Z - 02/01/2019

This license bracket was just what I needed to replace a broken one on my RV. This unit is well made, with a nice finish and a bright light. Better than original equipment!




by:

This kit works, but not in the configuration delivered. If you purchase this, be prepared to find an alternate method to mount the lights. You will likely need to modify the cargo carrier to make this work.

The lights are sealed units that are normally flush mounted on larger trailers. Mounts have been added with self-tapping screws that easily strip out of the housing and the mounts fall off the lights. The screws in the kit were smaller in diameter than the holes in the mounts, both front and back, making them useless. I tried attaching the lights using zip ties and just the mount on the light portion, but that failed when the mount screws stripped out of the lights. I did not have the issue with the wiring being too short like other reviewers. My wiring was actually a little too long.

To actually install this kit reliably, here what you need:

- Silicone
- Super Glue
- Screwdriver (Flat or Phillips Depending on Screw Choice)
- Wire Cutters (To Cut the Ends off of Anchors)
- 9/32" Drill Bit
- 4x #6x1.5" Machine Screw
- 4x #6x0.75" Anchors

How I installed mine:

1. Remove the plastic bracket supplied with the light. Fill the holes with silicone so that the lights are sealed again. Check in a couple minutes to ensure that the silicone didn't drip through. Add more as needed until the hole is filled.
2. Trim the ends off of your anchors so that they fit in the two plastic circles on the back of the lights. Just a little bit will do. Test fit them to make sure they go all the way in. Once you're sure they fit, super glue just the bevel at the top to the light. This is to prevent them from turning in the hole because the plastic on the light is really smooth.
3. Drill two 9/32" holes in the rear upright bars of the carrier. Make the holes 1/4" from the edge so you can still connect the wiring. Space the holes at 2 5/16". The holes need to go through the front and back of the uprights.
4. Put the screws through the back holes pointing outwards. Once the super glue has dried, screw the screws into the anchors.
5. Connect the wiring per the supplied instructions.

Works good. Only complaint would be the price. A little steep in my opinion. Otherwise a great product.

Nice sturdy bracket and matches my new tail lights. Led and bright. Just what I wanted. I will attach a photo.

It was great to find a replacement lens for my trailer lights. Previously, when I cracked a lens it meant a whole new light assembly. Now I can save time and money and remain safe and legal. Thanks to etrailer!

The led lights look great and were easy to install . The license plate holder finished the off the project.

Replaced original factory RV camper tail/stop lights with these led double lights. Fantastic difference! Helps with lane changes. Very bright.

I like the idea that this product has a lifetime warranty on the lights if they should burn out. Very pleased with the difference over factory installed lights.

See what our Experts say about this Optronics Trailer Lights



  • Can Optronics LED Trailer License-Plate Light # LPL55CB Be Mounted Upside Down
    The Optronics LED Trailer License-Plate Light, part # LPL55CB, could be mounted upside down but the case that covers the light is designed to protect the light from the elements with it mounted above the license plate. The case is solid on top to allow water to run off of the light fixture and the clear lens has a drain hole in it to allow any moisture on the inside of the lens to drain out. If you install the light upside down it would allow the chance of more water to go inside the case...

  • What Bolts to Use to Secure a License Plate to a LED Trailer License-Plate # LPL55CB
    I would just run up to a hardware store and grab a couple bolts with a matching nut and lock washer and secure the plate with that. You will want to use bolts with a diameter of 5/16 of an inch or smaller as that is the diameter of the mounting slot.

  • How To Wire Up the Optronics LED Trailer License Plate Light
    In regards to the Optronics LED Trailer License Plate Light part # LPL55CB, the black wire is for power and the white wire is a ground. The black wire will be hooked up to the running light circuit which is usually a brown wire. If you have a ground circuit nearby you could tap into this or just use a screw and ground it straight to metal.

  • License Plate Bracket for Cargo Carrier When It's Down For Use and Up For Storage
    I do have a potential solution for you, however we don't have a folding license plate holder available that you could use in different orientations, whether your hitch-mounted carrier is down for use or folded up against the rear of the vehicle. The best option I can offer is to simply use a single license plate bracket like the Optronics # LPL55CB. You can use some wing nuts, washers, and bolts for mounting that let you easily move the bracket/plate when needed. You would drill a couple...

  • Is Optronics LED Trailer License-Plate Light # LPL55CB Fully Submersible in Water
    The Optronics LED Trailer License-Plate Light # LPL55CB that you referenced is not a submersible light. We do offer other tag lights with brackets but none are both LED-types and submersible. We also offer submersible lights with incandescent bulbs but without the plate bracket. The link provided will show you the three submersible license plate lights we offer.

  • Installing 2-Wire Lighted License Plate Bracket on Trailer
    When wiring a 2-wire license plate bracket, such as the Optronics LED # LPL55CB, you are correct that the white wire will be for ground and the black wire is used for the running lights. The white wire from the bracket should be attached to a clean, bare metal surface on the trailer frame for a secure ground. As you mentioned, the brown wire on your trailer is most likely the correct wire to tap into for the black wire on the bracket, but you will want to verify this by testing the wires...

You will want to use bolts with a diameter of 5/16 of an inch or smaller as that is the diameter of the mounting slot.

    Each of the license plate lights we carry are going to require splicing with a power wire.

  • License Plate Bracket With Light Kit For Hitch Mounted Bike Rack
    I recommend instead, to use the Optronics LED Trailer License Plate Light w/ Bracket # LPL55CB. This product already has a built in light that will run off of 12V DC power, and can mount anywhere you'd like. Hardware is not included, however, so you'll need to supply that yourself.

  • Recommended License Plate Light for Rola Cargo Carrier # 59502
    To illuminate your license plate I recommend the Optronics LED Trailer License-Plate Light with License Plate Relocating Mounting Bracket # LPL55CB for your Cargo Carrier. If you already happen to have a license plate bracket and just need the light then I would recommend the LED # LPL41CB. LEDs will last longer and draw less amperage than traditional incandescent lights. I have linked the mentioned products and an installation video for your convenience.

Aluminum trailers and trailers with folding tongues can also have this issue. Using a ground jumper wire is a great fix.

    To remove bulbs from the Round Trailer License Plate Light with Mount Ears - Chrome Plated # LP71CB, you simply remove the screws on the outside mount, remove a plastic dome and rotate the bulb to remove. The bulb is a CT67. We don't have any LED replacement options for this bulb. We don't offer them in black instead of chrome. If you want a black LED option, I recommend the # LPL55CB.
