Video Transcript for Optronics Red and White Conspicuity Reflective Tape Review

Today we'll be taking a look at the Optronics 7" long white by 11" long red Conspicuity Reflective Tape in a quantity of four in 18" long strips, Part #RE418T. This also comes as a quantity of eight, Part #RE18T. The Optronics Conspicuity Reflective Tape comes in 18" long strips by 2" wide. This reflective kit is rated at over 600 candle power per square foot. It is also hermetically sealed and unbreakable. It does mount on flat, as well as, curved surfaces and it is DOT Certified, as well as, being rated for seven years of use. It also complies with the J1967 for vehicle conspicuity material. Now let's go ahead and go over here to our enclosed trailer and we'll show you how to put them on.

As you notice, this trailer does not already have the conspicuity tape installed on it, as it doesn't meet the federal requirements where it's needed. We're adding them to give us an extra safety feature and adding more visibility to others around us. We're going to go ahead and line it up right here along the bottom of the trailer. We'll first go ahead and clean the back area with just a little bit of glass cleaner and a paper towel. Now as you can see, the back has a split in it that allows you to easily pull it off. It also has a checkered style pattern that gives high visibility, as well as, reflectivity to it.

It lets you know right here that it is DOT compliant by having a DOT-C2 stamped right onto the strip. I will go ahead and line up where we want to put it, simply hold it in place and we'll peel back the small portion right here. Go ahead and take the backing and fold it over and press firmly in on the strip to make sure it adheres fully to the side of our trailer. Now, since four strips come with the package, we'll go ahead and apply the other three the same way we did this one. Now as you can see we've added significant reflectivity to our trailer by adding the Optronics Conspicuity Reflective Tape strips, Part #RE418T. .

Recently bought and refurbished trailer. Reflective tape went on easily and has held well! I was able to cut to size to fit between rails on trlr. I included a pic. at this point the trlr has close to 2,000 miles on it since installed and has been pressure cleaned once and not one loose piece of reflective tape. 650627

My experience with etrailer has been great,I first ordered a wire harness and lights to redo a utility trailer,then i thought why not do led lights,same amount of wk,so i returned the 1st set,no problems ordered the led harness,lights,and extra side marker lights,then i ordered 3 sets of refective tape,I have just finished my trailer,its only a 5x14,but it looks great,it is fire engine red,expanded metal bottom,and tail gate,with bright lights,rear,3 side marker yellow each side,3 reflective tape each side,4 tapes on rear tail gate,i added chrome wheels,it really dressed out to a nice looking trailer,I am proud of how finished,and etrailer was great doing business with multiple times with,it was nice getting a thank you from them each time and being noticed as a return customer,I would recommend anyone to use them,Thanks You Guys 89687

Item was delivered as specified and is good quality. I spend a lot of time on the road for work; and this product is practically "standard issue" on trailers of all sizes, from trailers for hauling off-road toys through 45' semi-trailers. The reason it is so common is that it works very, very well; which anyone hauling "quads", dirt bikes, horses or other livestock will appreciate. Have not installed the reflective stickers yet; as the horse trailer is undergoing some rehab work; which will culminate in a fresh coat of paint. I'm sure that it will install just as advertised and work as advertised. 101974

All the products have been great. They were installed on an older livestock trailer and they just keeping going. The white LED lights we put on the inside work too good. When I first pulled them out I thought they were too small and would do the job. They are so good we rarely use the one up front because the back one does such a great job. Thanks for the good products. 566843

etrailer is probably the best one stop trailer solution on the web. I just fabricated my own deck over dovetail tailed from scratch. I ordered just about everything I needed for the build. The sales staff are very knowledgeable and professional. I highly recommend etrialer to anyone weather your rebuilding your trailer or fabricating a new trailer, they pretty much have everything your looking for with very good pricing and they stand behind every product they sell. 359317

  • Reflector Option for Adding to 24x60 etrailer.com Cargo Carrier # E98874
  • The easiest way to add reflectors to the 24x60 etrailer.com Cargo Carrier # E98874 that you referenced is going to be with conspicuity tape like part # RE18T. This gives you a reflector sticker that gives you overall dimensions of 18 inches by 2 inches that you can cut down to whatever size needed.

  • Should the Red or White Part of Conspicuity Tape be Pointed Towards the Front of the Trailer
  • Generally on the side of a trailer the red part of the conspicuity tape such as # RE18T points towards the front of the trailer. I have included a link to our help article that covers this and other information on trailer lights and reflectors that you will find helpful.

  • Lighting and Conspicuity Treatment Requirements for 53-Foot Trailer
  • Trailer lighting requirements do vary based on trailer size and gross weight so in order to keep your trailer legal I suggest you refer to the article I linked for you which details the requirements for lights. The article also covers conspicuity treatments which are required for trailers over 10,000-lbs GVWR. These treatments consist of strips of reflective tape like # RE18T or rows of individual reflectors like # RT10RB that create an alternating pattern of red and white along the...

  • Difference in Tape Sizes for Trailer Conspicuity Tape Reflectors
  • If you check out the help article I attached below you'll see info on when conspicuity tape is needed like part # RTR15066B for 6 inch by 6 inch or part # RE18T for 7 inch by 11 inch. The size differences basically come down to what best fits the trailer, but here is more on that: Red and White Marking Tape Each segment of red or white marking tape must be from 6" to 18" long. Shorter lengths can be used to clear obstructions. Longer lengths can be used to avoid placing white tape...

  • Light Kit and Other Ways to Add Visibility to Hitch-Mounted Cargo Carrier C18153
  • For the Curt hitch-mount cargo carrier # C18153 there is no specific light kit offered but we can help you with the individual parts you'd need to install one. What you will need to do is use a light kit like # 98174LED, and then add 2 brackets # BK70BB. You will also need some self-tapping screws # FA1131822, or drill and use the hardware of your choice to mount the brackets. I noted in your purchase history that you have a 2011 Chevrolet Traverse, which will need to have a 4-pole...

  • Does Trailer Lighting TL29BK Meet FMVSS and DOT Requirements
  • The Trailer Taillight kit part # TL29BK does fit all DOT FMVSS requirements. If you are unsure if you need more lighting/conspicuity tape I attached a help article that covers lighting requirements for trailers based on size. The part # RE18T is a set of 18 strips of conspicuity tape that is 18 inches long and 2 inches wide.

  • Does the LED Trailer Tail Light # STL68RB Have Reflectors Built-In
  • The 10-1/8" x 3-1/16" LED Trailer Tail Light # STL68RB that you referenced is not reflective so you will need additional reflectors like part # RE11RB or part # RE18T. We do offer some light options that have reflectors built-in but nothing in this size. The Stainless Steel Trim Ring # A68SSB is purely for looks. If you don't want to install it then there is no need to as you can see from the attached installation video on an enclosed trailer.

  • Bright LED Amber Light that Can be Seen Straight On and at an Angle
  • I think I have the perfect light for you. Take a look at the LED amber clearance light # MCL49AB. This light has 14 diodes so it will be bright and you can see it straight on and from an angle. I have included a link to a video review of this light for you. You might also be interested in some conspicuity tape, # RE18T, for its reflective properties.
