Optronics MCL157RB GloLight Red LED Side Marker and Clearance Light Dimensions

Innovative GloLight Design

This red LED light serves as either a side marker light or a clearance light. The light gives your truck or trailer a distinctive look that's completely street legal. This Optronics GloLight has a unique solid light pattern when lit, so your lights stand out from the rest. Optronics GloLights are a great way to add both style and value to your truck or trailer.


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.


LEDs vs. Incandescent Lights

The long-lasting, cool-burning LEDs make this light the perfect replacement for incandescent vehicle and trailer lighting. LED lights are more efficient, use less power, and last much longer than incandescent lights.


Surface Mount Technology

The surface-mount technology used to construct these lights protects the LEDs from shock and vibration better than through-hole technology because the diodes are soldered directly to the surface of a printed circuit board instead of attached with wires that run through holes in the board. The result is a circuit board that is smaller yet provides more routing area and that offers superior performance, reliability, and durability.


Simple Installation

Back of Optronics Glow light showing standard 2-prong plug mount

This GloLight has a standard 2-prong plug as pictured above. A 2-prong pigtail with mating plug (A46PB or A49PB - sold separately) is required to connect this light to your vehicle or trailer. An optional mounting bracket is also available (BK55BB - sold separately) to make it easier to mount the light on your trailer.


P2-Rated Lights

Diagram of light spread for P2 rated light

A P2-rated light produces a 45-degree angle of light to either side of its centerline for a total of 90 degrees of coverage. This beam pattern can be seen straight on, but it cannot be seen clearly from the side. So this type of light can be used as either a side marker light or a clearance light, but it cannot function as both. If you need both functions, then you must install 2 separate light on your trailer - one as a front or rear clearance light and one as a side marker light.


Recessed-Mount Light

Recessed mount light

Recessed-mount trailer lights install underneath a housing or a grommet (A56GB, A56GB or A57GB - sold separately). These lights will extend into the mounting surface and require that a hole be cut into your trailer.

Nice light, I like the halo running light because it stands out a little. I did notice the price on these went up significantly (4 bucks) so not sure why that was 649627

Couldn't find anything like this anywhere. This reverse light far outshines other 6" oval led types I've had and seen. Was rear ended recently, and the old ones of this same style were knocked out and run over. Fits my 2012 ranch hand sport series bumper. 490512

Review from a similar GloLight in Trailer Lights


These lights are pretty impressive for trailer lights. I would be lying if I said I didn't consider putting a pair of them on my truck. The appearance is excellent, function is excellent, and I am overall very pleased with these lights. I installed them on my flatbed and livestock trailers - both look phenomenal but the vertical mount on the livestock trailer is most impressive. Installation was a snap with the new rubber bushings (purchased from etrailer for less than $1/each). You just can't go wrong for this price. I haven't seen STT lights I have liked as well as these. As far as the shipping goes, I live in West Central Illinois and these items arrived in less than 24 hours with the standard shipping. You cannot, and I mean cannot, beat etrailer for customer-centered service. OUTSTANDING!!! 102044

Light requires the use of a grommet to fix it into a recess. A video of how the grommet is installed & works with the light would be helpful. I spend a lot of time getting the grommet with the light to fit nicely note the hole needs to be a little bit larger than the light which is dimensioned in its description. Looks and fits great once installed properly. Nice products! 511515

Shipping was on time. Each light in own separate bag in box with tissue paper. Not just thrown in a box. Dielectric grease in each terminal. Light is insanely bright. Just what I wanted, hoping they last. Thanks Etrailer 568489

Optronics is a high quality brand. I love being able to see clearly behind me. I've backed over and into things; if I'd been able to see better, most could have been prevented. The backup lights make outstanding makeshift work lights for hooking up a trailer at night or changing a friend's flat tire. 644228

Excellent product. Brightest reverse light I've seen. Installed on ranch hand bumper on 2012 f150. Customer service from etrailer was amazing! I was notified that my order may be delayed due to availability via phone and email. Was not delayed after all; was notified about the package being shipped days later and the rest is history. All over, I feel very happy with my purchase 238728

These lights were added to my cargo trailer that I pull behind my motorcycle. These help to make sure that people see me when I am on the road. The lights were easy to install with the grommets and pigtails that I ordered at the same time. All the products worked together well and made the project easy to do. Love these lights and will buy more if needed. 403017

I'm only giving you a little over a good mark. Service was great delivery was great. But I'm sorry the lite is falling short of what I had hoped for. I expected a much brighter lite. with that many LED's on it.. I will say they are brighter then stock. but in dark location need as much lite can get. 572139


Comments
Because this lamp is a back-up lamp, its allowable brightness is limited by DOT regulations. A utility lamp like # BUL43CB
Optronics LED Trailer Utility Light - Submersible - 10 Diodes - Round - Clear Lens
$22.79
would be brighter, but would not be DOT compliant if used as a back-up lamp.

Review from a similar GloLight in Trailer Lights


Quite frankly, these are one of the nicest LED taillights I've seen. The glow of the tail-lamp is very modern and it's very bright. These replaced old halogen square tail-lights on a 2005 toyhauler, and it helped freshen up the look of the rear. I had to drill a few holes in the metal plate these attached to, as the three wires must have a direct exit so that they don't get pinched. Initially, these flashed an error code on my 2018 Superduty when I tested the turn-signals, but when I tested them again, the error code went away. Be aware that swapping out halogens for LED's on a trailer may make your tow vehicle throw a turn-signal error. 538942

Used the lights on my Harley servi-car, they look pretty good for trailer lights. The LEDs draw a lot less wattage than the lights that were on there. My charging system thanks you. 207285

Great Light! Put two on the back of a toyhauler for backing up. You will need the grommet and pigtail to do it right. I had to cut two oval holes for mounting in trailer frame. Take your time with the layout and get the right sized hole saw, makes installation pretty easy. 586398

Ask the Experts about this Optronics Trailer Lights

  • Looking for Trailer Clearance Light to Fit 2-5/8 Inch Rough Opening
    I'd recommend the # MCL59RB for red or # MCL59AB for amber. The lamps are sealed and are waterproof, perfect for a snowmobile trailer. Each LED lamp is 2-1/2 inches in diameter. With the lamp, you'd use the # A57GB grommet, which requires a 2-25/32 inch hole, which is about .156 of an inch larger than the 2-5/8 inch hole you referenced. If your 2-5/8 inch measurement is right on the mark, it would take just a few moments with a Dremel or a round file to slightly enlarge the existing holes...

  • Recommended Clearance Light And Grommet For Older Snowmobile Trailer Rebuild
    The clearance light I recommend for your snowmobile trailer is part # MCL57RB. This is a 3 diode 2-1/2 inch round light. It does require a rubber grommet for installation. The grommet to use for installing this light I recommend is part # A57GB. You may need to take a small round file and open the mounting hole you said measured about 2-5/8 inches but this should work well for your trailer. To connect the light to your trailer wiring I recommend using the Two Wire Pigtail, part...

  • Is GloLight LED Trailer Clearance or Side Marker Light P2 Rated
    I checked with Optronics and can confirm that the GloLight LED Trailer Clearance or Side Marker Light # MCL157RB is P2 rated. To mount this light you can use the 2-1/2" Round Grommet # A55GB for flush mount or 2-1/2" Round Grommet # A57GB for a recessed mount. It will require 2-Prong Plug # A46PB. The GloLight LED Trailer Clearance or Side Marker Light # MCL157RB is red although there is also an amber version of the exact same light at part # MCL157AB. I have added links to video...

  • Availability of a Flush Mounted 2-1/2 inch Diameter GLO Light Led Trailer Light
    The Optronics GloLight # MCL157RB that you referenced is designed to be recess mounted with the Recess Flange # A57GB. While it wouldn't quite be as flush mounted as the Optronics GLOLight LED Stop/Turn/Tail Light # STL101RFMB that you also have it would look pretty good on your trailer. For a very similar 2-1/2 inch LED light that is designed to be flush mounted check out the # MC57RB. For a flush mounted grommet you would want part # A55GB.

  • Recommendation for Bright, 2-1/2 Inch, Round, Trailer Tail and Clearance LED Lights
    The Peterson Piranha LED 2-1/2 Inch Round Trailer Clearance Light, 3 Diode # 162R light that you referenced is certainly a bright trailer light. This 3 diode LED light will be brighter than a standard trailer light for you. I have attached a review video of the # 162R and the # 162A for you to see what the lights look like when they are on in the dark. The Peterson Piranha lights will install on the trailer using a 2-wire pigtail and grommet, # 162-18K. These LED light will work great...

The correct terminal for the clearance/side marker lights is shown as "TM" which is a black/brown wire.

For an oval LED light with a grommet, the GloLight # STL111RB is 6-7/16" Wide x 2-5/16" tall and fits in grommet # A70GB. A round LED light that may work is the GloLight # MCL157RB which is 2-1/2" Diameter x 1-3/16" deep and fits in grommet # A55GB.

  • Is the Heavy Duty Light Bracket # BK55BB Compatible with Optroncs Glolights
    Yes, the Heavy-Duty Metal Mounting Bracket # BK55BB that you referenced would work with the Optronics Glolight Amber # MCL157AB or the Optronics Glolight Red # MCL157RB but you will need a grommet as well. For that you would want a Round Grommet # A57GB. For wiring up the lights you will want a Two Wire Pigtail for Sealed Trailer Clearance, Side Marker Lights # A46PB.
