Optronics MC53 Series Amber Marker Clearance 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.

PC-Rated Lights

Diagram of light spread for PC rated light

A PC-rated light produces a 90-degree angle of light to either side of its centerline for a total of 180 degrees of coverage. This beam pattern can be clearly seen when you are standing directly in front of the light, as well as when you are standing on either side of the light. When properly installed, this type of light can function as both a front clearance light and a side marker light or as a rear clearance light and side marker light.

A good price!


We use these lights in our electrical diagnosis simulator. The lights work perfectly!


The Clearance lights we got from you a year ago are working just fine. My husband had to do some new rewiring to get them to work because the wiring that was there was terribly old. But he got the new ones to work. We have a 1973 Nomad trailer I inherited from my parents and I need new tail light covers because they are badly faded but I'm having a hard time finding them because they are rectangular, approximately 8 3/4 x 4 1/4. If you could help me find two of them I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you

The clearance lights we got to replace the old ones on the camp trailer are working great. Thanks

I was online looking for a source for 2 in round push in lights for flatbed on my truck. I came across etrailer and I found what I needed and pricing was super low and got a quality light as well. They shipped them promptly and received them within 1 day because of choice of 1 day shipping . I will be back for more stuff for my 3 trailers I own . Good job guys and gals. Thanks.

Perfect, still working great

Ordered bulbs for a CM Truck bed. Once again Perfect fit.


I ordered these running lights to replace the originals on the 1997 boat trailer that I purchased used. One of the original lights (?), although "sealed" / "submersible", actually failed when submersed. I don't know how long the original lasted, but I know that the previous owner stored the boat outside and the freeze/thaw cycle could have caused the failure.

Before I installed the new one, I added a small bead of silicon sealant as a "backup" to the factory sonic sealing. Hopefully I'll be able to upgrade this rating in a few years.


Works great and bright! Terminals were covered with a protective piece of tape and had some terminal grease in them and all ready to go. Thank you etrailer!

Still working great one year later

In total, I purchased electric tongue jack, double roller for rear ramp door, vent cover, new backing plates (four) complete with electric brakes, new hubs and bearings.
This time wheel covers for two trailers and some lights for quad trailer.
I am very pleased with everyone involved with purchases and products.
I would recommend etrailer to anyone and have already done so to some friends!!


Exactly what i needed! So glad I found etrailer. Not that I mind using dealers and repair shops on occasion, but I also prefer to save money on those projects that i can take on myself. The clearance lights were a perfect replacement and a quality product. Fast shipping was appreciated!




Bought these lights for my trailer 1 year ago and they are working like a champ. These sealed lights are not expensive and no hassle. Unplug and plug in. Very simple.


I had to order this Round Trailer Clearance and Side Marker Light because the replacement provided by the trailer manufacturer did not work.
This light was a perfect replacement for the original.
And I received it from ETrailer earlier than I expected.
I will continue to shop with ETrailer for all my trailer needs.


I have purchased from etrailer several times and I find the selection of parts very good

I think their attempt to help customers with video and a good tech department is very unique and beneficial

The quality of the lights I received is good but I do feel it was not the same quality as the original "Grote" brand lights my trailer came equipt with...
Also the quality of the rubber grommits was definitely thinner and not as robust as all the original grommits used on the trailer originally... these parts were made over seas and the oems were all American made...

This is not meant to be a "DONT BUY" I'm just stating the facts
the parts are not the same quality but the price was great and the parts did work just fine but just bear in mind there is a difference but for my used trailer rebuild they were just fine

the jacketed wire was top notch BTW

I would buy from etrailer and these same parts again


I have a new POLARIS aluminum trailer. I broke a side light lens cover. The dealer could not supply me a replacement. I found the exact lens at The lens is an exact match and the service was very fast. The etrailer rep I talked to was very helpful and courteous.


This was an easy installation and has worked perfectly for the first year. Good value product.


These lights were an exact replacement for my trailer marker lights. The description was good enough to help me mark the choice and I am happy that I did. Works well as everything that I have bought from etrailers has for the past 4 years! My go to place for trailer parts and accessories!


I priced the same items around here and I could buy three light with shipping from for less than the cost of one light in the stores here.
I also like the pictures of the items which helps you order the right product and the ease of scrolling through the website to find the correct light.
Your lamps were OEM lighting that came with my trailer.


I was very pleased with the products available on your website. The site was very easy to find what I needed and I was able to order and have delivered in a reasonable time. All the places where I live told me either they couldn't find or it would take weeks to get and cost a lot of money. Thanks and I will definitely be shopping at again in the future.


Exactly what I ordered and great service. They resolved an issue with a back order part and took great care of us!


Perfect fit for my boat trailer. I looked all over for these lights. And your price was great as well. Thanks I will shop with etrailer for now on.


I just bought a 2006 goose neck trailer that needed some minor repair. Wanted to match existing good parts. These lights were exact in every way.


I actually found everything I needed for lights and at a good price. Products were exactly as shown on the site. I will surely go to etrailer first for other products when I need them.


Website is well laid out and provides extensive information to ensure you are making correct selection for your trailer. Staff kept me informed of progress on the order. The order was shipped in timely manner and contained the correct parts. Great experience!


Great product and price. Fast shipping. I'll always check with your company for anything I need for my trailers. I was frustrated looking for the lights, until I came across your web page.


hitch parts ordered very nice part, lights same , very good price.always use because of price and service its the best

  • What Is Hole Size For Mounting 2 Inch Round Trailer Lights With Rubber Grommet
    The item you selected, Sealed 2-1/2 Trailer Light, part # MC57AB, is a 2-1/2 inch light that will mount into a 3 inch hole using 2-1/2 inch grommet, part # A55GB. The hole size to mount a 2 inch round light flush mounted would be 2-5/16 inches. The grommet you would need for a 2 inch light would be 2 Inch Round Grommet, part # A54GB. If you are flush mounting your lights, the 2 inch light will sit inside the grommet. A 2 inch light similar to the one you selected is part # MC53AB. We...

  • Looking for Trailer Clearance/Marker Light to Replace Trucklite Model 10
    According to my research, I have found that the Trucklite model 10 clearance/side marker light measures 2-1/2 inches in diameter. Because the Optronics # MC53AB measures 2 inches in diameter, it would not be a good replacement. The Optronics # MC57AB, with its 2-1/2 inch diameter, would be the correct replacement. If you need a mounting grommet, it is available as part # A55GB. The two pin wiring pigtail is also available as part # A46PB.

  • Does Light # MCL50AB Use the Same Grommet as Light # MC53AB
    Yes, the Sealed Miro-Flex 2" Round LED Trailer Side Marker part # MCL50AB will fit in the same grommet as the Sealed 2" Round Trailer Clearance and Side Marker Light part # MC53AB as they are both exactly 2" diameter. The LED option however is 1-3/16" tall whereas the incandescent option is 11/16" tall but as you mentioned this should not be a problem. If you need a new grommet then you can use the 2" Round Grommet part # A54GB.

  • Replacement Side Marker Light and Grommet for a Trucklite Brand Grommet and Marker Light
    I went out to the warehouse and pulled grommet # A54GB and light # MC53AB. I then assemble them and the result looks exactly like your picture. I then measured the amount the lens sticks up above the grommet and came up with just under half an inch. The lens could be pressed further in. I used digital calipers to take the measurement. I also made a video showing the assembled result for you. The light takes wiring harness # A46PB if you do not already have them on your trailer.
