dimensions of light

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.


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.

Video Transcript for Optronics LED Amber Clearance and Side Marker Light Review

Today we will be taking a look at the Optronics LED clearance or side marker light. This is what it looks like installed. This would be a great choice for you if you just needed to replace your light, or even if you're looking to upgrade to an LED from a traditional style incandescent. As you can see, even with just three diodes in this bright room it still puts off plenty of light. An LED light is a better option in my opinion because it uses less power for a brighter light. You don't have to worry about replacing bulbs and it lasts a long time.

It features a sonically sealed waterproof housing and lens, which makes it fully submersible, so this light is ideal for trailers that may spend some time in water, like boat or jet ski trailers.The light measures 1-1/8" wide, 1-1/8" tall, and 1-1/16" deep. On the back of side of the light we have our power wire and we also have our mounting bolt. Now this bolt actually serves as the light's ground as well, which is a really nice feature compared to some of the others, which are a two wire design. Also along the edge here on the top and bottom there's an indentation, and that will allow us if we want to to run our power wire out of the light like that.Now that we've gone over some of the features, let's show you how to get it installed. The first thing you want to do is determine where you're going to mount your light.

We have a bracket here, and this is what we're going to go with. The only thing you'll need is a center hole big enough for your ground post to fit through, and if your hole is already preexisting and a little too large you can use a washer so the nut doesn't pull through.I'll go ahead and take our rear off. You take your wire and feed it through, and using your hand on the outside to maintain pressure you could take a washer, the included lock washer, and the included nut and just get it finger tight for now. Then we can grab a tool and snug it up.Once it's mounted we can get our power wire for our trailer and we're going to connect the trailer power wire to the light's power wire. We're going to accomplish that with a heat shrink bar connector, which you can find these on etrailer.com.We went ahead and zip tied back this wire up out of the way not only for a better look, but to help prevent them from getting damaged.

The last thing we need to do is to put power to our light to make sure it works. As you can see, it does.That completes our look at the Optronics LED clearance or side marker light.

Fit perfectly. Soldered the wires together and covered with heat-shrink tubing. Nice and bright. Survived one dunking so far. 93550

Still working perfectly! I try to always be sure to disconnect the wire harness before dunking, just to be safe.

Marker light is clear and bright. The light grounds itself through the mounting stud by design, but I used a ring terminal and wire lead to connect to the ground on the wiring for a bit better grounding source. Works perfectly and saves me time at the boat ramp by not having to disconnect the trailer lights since they are all LED's. 134732

Everything still working like new after a dozen trips to the lake. Definitely recommend.

Once again, the best in service and selection. Ordered the marker lights and they appeared in my mailbox almost as quickly as it took to log off the site. Products are as described, priced amazingly well and perform as advertised. This is the supplier to use for high quality items that far surpass those available in "parts stores" or Big Box retailers. Have used their products on two boat trailers and one equipment trailer, every item far better than OEM and true to descriptions... 502526

I want to thank you for all your help with my trailer you were more helpful than you realize. So this is my trailer for a 22' Flats Cat shallow draft Catamaran. I totally dismantled my trailer and buffed by hand with a wire buffer and sand blasted in some spots and applied multiple coats of some very expensive galvanize paint (Z.R.C.). I installed all new C. E. Smith Carpet (about 80'), seven new LED waterproof lights, new springs, new equalizers, new tongue jack, new wench, new safety chain, new chain brackets, all new SS hardware and a 35' long wiring harness. I was able to send only one review with a picture of the safety chain and brackets. I'm having a little trouble with the rest..oh some of these items were bought locally or from your competitors, until I found ETRAILER. Your prices were cheaper for the exact same things. Your helpful how to videos were helpful. And Rose, your personal helpful knowledge made my buying experience very pleasant, I actually enjoyed talking to you! Thanks to ETRAILER and specifically to Rose G. 497942

Very bright, very easy install; only reason for 4 stars is bc I just installed them and can't speak for their longevity; I drilled a small hole in my trailer next to the main mounting hole to poke the wire through, so as not to see the wire; looked very nice. 479238

As of the last time I launched which was in November the lights still worked great. They have been fully submersed many times in either fresh or salt water.

  • Upgrading Lights on 2000 Tracker PT175 Trailer to LED
    We do offer a wide variety of replacement lights for trailer but since trailer manufacturers don't keep a record of what they use on trailers I would need some pictures of the lights you are wanting to replace along with some measurements so I can be sure to recommend the correct parts.

  • Replacement Trailer Lights for Shoreland'r Boat Trailer
    For other options we have # MCL95AB for amber lights and # MCL95RB for red. They're still surface mounted lights but the base is included and may work for you. They're also a single wire design so they ground through the mounting hardware. If these will not work for you reply to my email with your pictures and dimensions and I'll see if I can find some that will.

These sealed, waterproof LED light assemblies measure 2-1/8 inches long and 1-1/8 inches wide. They feature a single mounting stud on the back. These do have a single wire design, as opposed to the 2-wire design you mentioned. This simply means that they will ground through the mounting stud instead of using a dedicated ground wire.

  • Can 12 Guage Wire Connect to 20 Gauge Wire With Butt Connectors
    When you have to go from a much thinner gauge wire to a thicker gauge wire with a butt connector you want to use the bigger size connector like # DW05745-10 which fits 10 to 12 gauge but the trick to getting the thinner gauge wire to fit well is to strip off 3 times as much insulation than you'd normally need and fold the core of the wire a couple times so that it ends up being thick enough for the butt connector to grab it.

  • How to Mount Trailer Clearance Lights that Ground Through the Mounting Studs
    With a one wire light like the Optronics Mini Rectangular LED Clearance Light, item # MCL95AB, you can ground the light in one of two ways. If the light is mounted to a location that allows for the mounting bolt or screw to contact a good ground location such as the vehicle frame then you can mount the light in this location. Then, run the power wire to a 12 volt positive tail light circuit without further wiring. If the location the light is mounted to is not a good source of ground,...

  • Lighting and Conspicuity Tape Recommendation for a 36 Foot Long Trailer

Based on your dimensions you would want the # TLL36RK to start and then would also need a # MCL84RB and a couple more clearance lights like part # MCL95AB. You will also need conspicuity tape as well like part # RTR150711PB. See the mentioned help article for placement of the lights and tape.

    The Optronics Mini Rectangular LED Clearance Lights, # MCL95AB and # MCL95RB, are single stud surface mount lights, so they do not have a grommet or mounting bracket available. They were designed to mount directly to an existing bracket or to the trailer frame. The closest clearance lights that we carry to the dimensions of your current lights are the Optronics Square LED Clearance Light, # MCL36AB and # MCL36RB.

  • Troubleshooting LED Lights on 2008 Shadow Horse Trailer
    Since most of your trailer lights are functioning I would check the two subject lights' mounting and wiring for the cause for the problem. If the light uses a mounting stud or mounting hardware to establish the ground, like # MCL95AB, then you can try sanding/cleaning the mating surfaces to remove any corrosion, dirt or trapped moisture that could be interfering with the electrical connection. Also inspect the wiring for signs of damage from road debris or hungry critters. Once you have...

  • What is the Gauge of the Wire on the Optronics Tail and Clearance Light Assemblies
    I went to our warehouse to check the size of the wiring on the Optronics # STL9RB & # STL8RB Tail Lights and the # MCL95AB Clearance Lights. The wire on these units measured 12 gauge. When connecting to existing trailer wire, I recommend using the Deka Electrical Butt Connectors, # DW05745-10. This is a set of 10 heat shrink butt connectors that will connect 12-10 gauge wiring.

  • How Long is the Mounting Bolt on the Optronics LED Clearance Light # MCL95AB
    The bolt on the back of the clearance light # MCL95AB is approximately 5/8 inches long from the back of the light housing to the end of the bolt. Not all bolts on lights equipped with them are the same length but they are generally within very close proximity, no more than 1/4 inch off, from the lights I have measured. The stud in this light is also the grounding point. Similar lights, like # MCL13A2B, would mount using 2 screws with gasket # A13G2B. This light has 2 wires so you would...

  • Connection Recommendation for Connecting 12 Gauge and 20 Gauge Wire
    I wouldn't recommend using quick splice connectors when trying to connect to different gauge wires (as well as in general). Ideally you solder the connection or you use butt connectors. If you use butt connectors you'll want to use the yellow ones like part # DW05745-10 which are for 10 to 12 gauge wires. On the lighter gauge wire you'd need to strip back quite a bit more wire than needed and then fold the wire core a few times to thicken it up and allow the butt connectors to grab them.
