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.


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.


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.


Just wanted to tell you that I have finally installed the product I ordered
from, 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


Only 1 of the 5 LED’s work. Disappointing.
picture isn’t that great due to the reflection, but only the center led is lit.

The LED lights are covered under warranty. I will have our Customer Service team reach out to you.


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!


Needed rear license holder when installing new Bragman LED surface mount lights.
Holder was easy to install an works great.


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!


Item showed up early ,and was8 what I o rd9ered


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


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

They are still working great and looking good


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.


The Clear plastic lens keeps coming unsnaped from the rubber base. Had to use gorilla glue to keep it in place.

I would say that this is not normal with this bracket. I will have our Customer Service team reach out to you.


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

Rich Z.


All is well. Thanks


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.



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


A year has passed since I installed my LED trailer tag light/bracket and it’s still working as good as the day I installed it.

David M.


Working great


The first license plate lights that doesn't break when you back your boat trailer into the water while it's running. Yea LEDS!



Many a loaded trailer trips and all is still doing great! Its so nice when a product works like it should!


This plate mount with light is the exact replacement part for my boat trailer.
Perfect! And of course E-Trailers service is consistently fantastic! Thanks team!

Light still performing as required!


I did a little engineering on it, but it did a great job. Even a Police Officer at the beach commented positively about it.


I love the LED tail lights that I purchased for our travel trailer. Exceptionally bright and they give me a lot more confidence driving down the road both in daylight hours and after dark. The trailer manufactures should be installing these tail lights from the get go. They were easy to hookup and install and the full size foam rubber gasket makes a great seal. The picture you see with my review isn't of the tail lights.


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.



Very Well, Well made


I ordered the LED License plate light/bracket to replace an old broken one on my 1984 13' Scamp camp trailer. The renovation of my trailer is not yet complete but the new light/bracket along with the new LED tail/signal/brake lights also from etrailer, will make the old camper look like new from the rear. The composite, non-metal construction should insure long life that is free from rust, & the LED lights will 'draw' less energy while lasting much longer than incandescent.


I’m very happy with these LED tail lights. Bought them to replace the ones that came on the trailer. They are bright and seem to be of high quality. They were easy to install. The only slight drawback is that it’s a bit tricky to get the wires to lay flat enough against the light to get it to sit flush with the back of the trailer. But in the end it worked fine. I would recommend these as a good replacement for older, smaller, incandescent tail lights.


etrailer had everything in stock
shipping too
Very happy and will be a repeat customer


good product. would buy again.

  • License Plate Mounting Bracket Solution for Ladder on Class B Motorhome
    Thank you for all of the details and photos! For your application I recommend using the Thule License Plate Holder for Bike Racks # TH35JV along with the 6' Long Roadmaster Extension Loop # RM-300150-00. This gives you exactly what you're needing and eliminates the need to hardwire connections like you'd need to do with the LED Bracket # 328-003-70BE or Optronics # LPL55CB. The Thule bracket also comes with straps to mount it so you can wrap those around your ladder rungs which will not...

    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.

  • Replacement Bracket Recommendation for Moving RV License Plate for Increased Visibility
    It really just depends on the mood of the police officer. At least in our area they don't really mess with RVers who happened to have a plate that's not visible. But that can really depend on where you are at and how bored the cop would be. Moving the plate should be too hard either. A bracket like the part # CE26053A would be the easiest way to do it but then if you wanted to run a bracket with a light you would need the # LPL55CB. You would need to tap into the running light circuit...

    It wouldn't really be possible to mount a license plate to the Carr Mega Step Fold-Up Step - 2" Hitch - 14" Long part # CARR190011B because you would need to install it on the side of the step to have enough ground clearance.

  • Using Optronics Hardware # LP52HP to Secure License Plate to Factory Flush Bracket on New Trailer
    The Optronics Hardware Kit # LP52HP that you referenced is indeed the best option we have available for securing the license plate to the factory bracket on your new travel trailer. This kit is designed specifically for the Optronics brackets like their LED # LPL55CB, which has a really similar design to the one in the picture you attached. I can't say for certain that the nut won't rub up against the surface of the trailer, but you can compare the depth of your bracket's mounting holes...

  • What is a Recommended License Plate Light for a Cargo Carrier?
    The best option for you to use a license plate light with your Pro Series Cargo Carrier, # 63153, would be to get the available cargo carrier light kit, # 20174. The kit plugs into a trailer wiring harness on your vehicle for turn, stop and running light functions. After that, the LED Trailer License-Plate Light with Mounting Bracket, # LPL55CB, can be mounted on the carrier and lit by tapping into the running light circuit wire from the light kit.

  • Making License Plate Light Kit Adapter for Spare Tire Carrier
    To make a license plate light that you could add to your spare carrier you could use the part # LPL55CB to provide the light and plate bracket and then for wiring use run a # HM48110 to it so that you could plug in when needed. Basically you'd run the brown wire of the 4-way to the black of the light and then the white to white and you'd be set.

  • 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...

If you have a ground circuit nearby you could tap into this or just use a screw and ground it straight to metal.
