MCL165 Series Dimensions

Innovative GloLight Design

This amber 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 trailer lighting. LED lights are more efficient, use less power, and last much longer than incandescent lights.


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 lights on your trailer - one as a front or rear clearance light and one as a side marker light.


Surface-Mount Light

Surface mount light

Surface-mount lights install flat against the surface of the trailer, so a hole does not need to be cut into the trailer for the light. This type of light is installed using a flange or bracket that has mounting holes. And mounting hardware is used to secure the light to the trailer.

Video Transcript for Optronics GloLight Trailer Lights Manufacturer Review

Brett Johnson: (silence)The Glolight is the stunning combination of premier lighting technology, meeting world-class style and capabilities. The introduction of the Glolight series represents the first truly different approach in years to the visual presentation of stop-tail-turn lamps.Most LED lamps have hotspots or patterns of bright light. Glolight lamps are visually distinctive from other LED lamps, because their lenses diffuse the light, giving them a smooth, bright, glowing appearance.The Glolight optical technology is so different, it's patentable. And Optronics has 35 new products with Glolight technology in its pipeline, right now. Mudd: Lighting is one of the most visibly predominant features on any vehicle, and this is a completely different looking yet highly effective light. We're focused on integrating the latest technology into our manufacturing process, and these new lights clearly represent the innovative partnership between Vanguard and Optronics.

Innovation is important to Vanguard, our customers, and our industry. Robert: Glolight technology looks different because it is different. Different in its optical approach and different all the way down to the circuit boards.We designed and manufactured all of our lamps using the most advanced engineering techniques, and test them in our own world-class, state-of-the-art optical testing facility. Lamps are engineered to resist everything, from shock, to dust, to high-velocity water spray. We're committed to designing and manufacturing erosion-resistant LED lighting products.

And Glolight lamps are produced using solid state, surface-mount device, or SMD, technology.Most LED lamps sold in the heavy duty market today, use what is typically referred to as "through hole" construction. Optronics LEDs are mounted directly to the surface of the circuit board, eliminating exposure to connecting points. LED lamps with SMD technology, like Optronics' new Glolight, are so robust that they can continue to function even if their circuit board is completely submerged in water. The unique Glolight lenses and housings are made of tough polycarbonate material that is sonically welded to create an impermeable seal. Glolight lamps meet all FMVSS 108 and SAE photometric requirements for visibility and safety.

And our lamps are tested at a certified, independent laboratory.I guess it's redundant to say this, but our lamps come with a lifetime warranty. Roush: There's nothing out there that's as eye-catching and effective as these Glolight lamps. Vanguard is always drawn to component supplier products that contribute to our customers' efforts to operate more effectively and safely. Glolight lamps just look different and more noticeable. And that means better safety.

Brett Johnson: With world-class manufacturing facilities, harness making capabilities, and a global market presence, Optronics is now changing the competitive landscape in HD lighting. We always have access to a lighting manufacturer with global sophistication, fleets are enjoying increased product availability, and everyone is befitting from new, innovative technology and the industry's most competitive pricing structure. With Glolight, Optronics is sending a signal that things have changed in the HD lighting industry.

I spent a lot of time on the internet looking for bright LED clearance lights. I happened upon these GloLight marker lights. I was a little hesitant but have been nothing but pleased. The lights seem to be of sufficient build to keep the water out for years to come. Many LED lights put light out in a straight patter I wanted a light that gave general area lighting and this fits the bill. I drive a lot in the pitch black. It is nice to be able to clearly see where my trailer is at at all times. I would definitely purchase these lights again. I purchased the amber as well as red marker lights. I also purchased the tail markers and the effect was dramatic. Way brighter than the old LEDs I had on it. 589646

I have a 2004 haulmark 8.5x24 and had a difficult time finding these replacement lenses. I was very happy to find them in an LED version. Installation was relatively easy; however, the metal pan head screws used to install the original light bases were too tall for these lenses, and I had to grind them down in order to get these lenses to snap into place. These lenses appear to be made well and I hope they will stand up to ultraviolet light without fading. Very pleased. 258078

Trying to swap out my trailer lights to LED, so the draw on the battery is minimal. There are so many variations on the solid color, I had to measure and keep measuring. The solids have 10 Led’s But no such luck is it’s the fender lights that are both amber and red. I guess one company can’t do it all. It would be great to include the mounting plates, especially at this price. And also to sell multi packs of two or three. I only need two amber and two fender dual color, but need seven red. Shipping was sort of slow compared to today’s shipping speeds. Back in the day it would have been speedy. Times they are a changing. Packaging was weak. Each light has a plastic bag, but maybe only two were still in the bag. Maybe some sort of sealed plastic bag would have been smart. I’m guessing these will work fine. I thought we had to be careful of the Positive and Neutral leads for LED lights because we can damage them if they go on backwards. I guess we shall find out. Thanks etrailer for actually having this product with such extensive documentation and videos. Other websites ain’t got nothin on you. 653347

We do have several light bracket options linked at the bottom of each product page for each light. There are different configurations, and colors to suite your specific needs. At this time we do not offer these lights in a multi-pack configuration.

I have found that the LEDs burn out much quicker than the incandescent bulbs, but because the LEDs burn out one at a time, I get about the same amount of use. The burn out may be because my alternator puts out nearly 15 volts which exceeds the capacity of the LED. I like the LED light because it is much brighter, even with burned out LEDs. 421988

Review from a similar Optronics GloLight Thinline in Trailer Lights


Looks clean and simple. Works well and can be easily replaced if something impacts an area of your trailer. Easy to install, but make sure you use low profile mounting hardware. A nice low profile screw works well, but a cap head screw will create an interference when clipping this light to it’s mount. 521326

Review from a similar Optronics GloLight Thinline in Trailer Lights


The only other way to get a drivers attention would be to slap them up side the head! Great looking, eye catching, extremely bright especially at night. The only problem I had was one of the lights wasn’t water tight. After a rain storm, I found about 1/4” of water at the bottom of one. This was the same problem I had with a previous led light. Evidently the hermetically sealed light wasn’t hermetically sealed. I alleviated this problem by drilling a small (.016”) weep hole in the bottom. I’ve taken a few pictures to show the quality and brightness of these lights. Lights off, lights on during daylight and at dusk. The picture of the lights at dusk is not the intensity of brake lights but just taillights. 435848

Nicely made LED brake/turn & tail light. Sealed from moisture. Don't forget to order the silver base to mount the light. I was able to trim the base on each end so that the LED piece fit on a slightly curved surface. Without the base that would not have been possible. I mounted these lights on the rear of my truck topper for towing with my MH. 608595

Review from a similar Optronics GloLight Thinline in Trailer Lights


One of my old LED tail lights had a few diodes fail so I started the hunt for a replacement. I wanted something with a fairly bright output so people will know that I am there. I spent quite a bit of time searching the internet and reading reviews before arriving upon these. I was a little skeptical about the "glow" but I LOVE them. They more than exceeded my expectations. There is a version of these tail lights that have reverse lights and I almost got that for those dark nights when I put the trailer away. These put off enough general light it almost isn't needed, though it would still be nice so others would know if I was backing. I took the opportunity to replace all the trailer lights and bought the GloLight amber and red side markers as well. I am out in the country so at night there is almost no light pollution. It is nice to be able to see exactly where my trailer is at all times. I would buy these all day long. I actually own a second enclosed trailer and am considering putting these on even though those haven't failed yet. I have also purchased from etrailer in the past and always had a great experience and this was no different. 589639

Review from a similar Optronics GloLight Thinline in Trailer Lights


These are a very high-quality... I love the glow they give off, unlike regular LEDs these are intense but not overwhelming and they really make my trailer visible day or night in just the tail light mode which was the biggest worry I had. But when the brakes are applied it's so bright that there's no doubt I'll be stopping and nobody will be confused of that... I'm going to get more of these for the other trailers I have, they make me safer at night by far. And they are bright enough I really don't need backup lights, the glow is amazing... 544152

Review from a similar Optronics GloLight Thinline in Trailer Lights


In general, I am very pleased with the LED marker lights I ordered. One bit of advice, there is a "zero clearance" fit between the light itself and the mounting base. Therefore, the only screw that will work must be a tapered head which sits, fully recessed, within the mounting holes. The lights did not come with any mounting screws, so you must source your own. 389352
