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.

Video Transcript for Optronics Round Trailer Clearance and Side Marker Light Installation

Today we'll be taking a look at the Optronics sealed, 2-inch, round, amber trailer clearance and side marker light, part number MC53AB. This round amber light can be used as a clearance or side marker light. It's a perfect replacement to match your other incandescent lights. It uses a heavy duty long-lasting bulb. It features a sonically-sealed waterproof housing and lens, so it's going to hold up for a long time. Here's what it looks like when the lights are off.

As you can see, we've got a nice bright light here in the center. That's our bulb, and here on the outside of the light, where the rings are, it diffuses evenly. Now that we've gone over the features, I'll go ahead and show you how to get it installed. All of our trailer's side marker lights are working except for this one, so we simply just need to replace it with the new one. Let's go ahead and show you how we'd do that. To remove our old light, if we can access the back, we can just simply push it out through the front, or if we have a flat blade screwdriver, we can pry it out.

Since we have access to the back, let's go ahead and just push it out. You can see on the back side it's going to reveal our connection. We're just going to pop that loose. As you can actually see, our connections are dirty, and they're even split a little bit, which could cause the light not to work. Now our trailer here is using a two wire pigtail, which means it's going to work out great for our new Optronics light. If you don't have one, you could pick up one with part number A46PV.

Now our new light does not come with a grommet, but if you need to replace yours, you could pick up a new one with part number A54GV. Now when installing trailer lights, it's important to remember that your amber lights are going to go on the side or in the front of your trailer, and that your red lights are going to go towards the back. Now our new light's going to come pre-greased. Let's go ahead and peel back the paper. You can see how it's pre-greased in there. When we hook it up, it doesn't rightly matter which way you go.

It will work either way. We'll simply just line up our plug and push it firmly in place, just like that. Let's go ahead and test it out. As you can see, our new light is working. Let's go ahead and turn it back off, push it in the grommet, then we're all set. This part's very easy to do, as well. All we need to do is just line it up with the grommet, evenly on both sides, and just push it into place. We're all set. With our new Optronics light plugged in, it's working, and our trailer's going to be more visible at night. That's going to complete our look at our Optronics sealed, 2-inch, round, amber trailer clearance and side marker light, part number MC53AB.

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 403115

I priced the same items around here and I could buy three light with shipping from Etrailer.com for less than the cost of one light in the stores here.

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
