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. .

18" L x 2" W; alternating red/white reflector tape; 8 strips; DOT certified; rated for 7 years of use


The reflective tape installed perfectly on the side of our camper. And they are still there after our trip from Wisconsin to Texas and back!!


Going to lake and forgot to raise jack on trailer and bent jack at trailer and jack had a 45 degree slant / bend. replaced it with a " jack", more affordable than Walmart and Bass Pro !!!!!! Ordered reflective strips to place on back of boat motor , back of boat and trailer receiver. prices are SO MUCH MORE lower than any other place I have found and / or shop at. With such a large inventory online, I'll be shopping here more often. AND shipping and service is FAST!!!!

Have added a new wiring harness and side marker lights, trailer looks like a X-mas tree going down the highway. VERY REFLECTIVE. The NEW TRAILER JACK IS SOOOOOOOOOO MUCH BETTER THAN THE custom jack. ALL IS WELL HERE.
Jeff I - 12/28/2014


have not used yet, but good size and quite reflective. should work fine one applied to hitch carrier.


This is the first time I've used these cut-to-length reflective strips. Seems pretty easy.

A great product in an easily manageable length. After a year on the job they have not faded. They have not come off. This is a winner.
Don B - 05/06/2022


Recently bought and refurbished trailer.
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.


I've got these babies applied around the perimeters of a couple of my equipment trailers. They were a cinch to apply, have been durable and are holding up well AND meet the legal requirements in my state for conspicuancy markings. I'm VERY happy with them.


Your site was very easy to navigate. Products were well explained. Everything I ordered came in 3 days with no problems.Tracking number was sent as soon as processed. I will buy from them again.


So far - so good. Adhesive is still sticking and have not noticed any fading.


Arrived today. Love that there were 8 in the pack. I can install one on each door of the trailer I am remodeling, one on each side(trailer is 10 ft cargo trailer) and use the other 4 on our 8 ft cargo trailer. These should make them very visible even if parked.


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

I have been proud of the lights i put on the trailer,they are bright,they really dressed the trailer up,along with all the dot tape,everyone cant help but notice the trailer at night,thanks again for a good product
Bill M - 07/22/2014


Identical to what I was replacing on my old trailer, heavy foil metal backing, they might last 20 years like my old ones did.


Instant stick and great reflective qualities. Last set lasted 4 years. All smiles here.


Arrived without being damaged.


I researched the DOT requirements for my trailer. According to DOT I should have red reflecting markers on the back and the outer most side of the trailer towards the back, also there should be yellow reflecting markers at the outer most front side of the trailer. Basically the reflectors should duplicate what lights are on the trailer. I would assume if a light fails the reflector would add some visibility to the trailer. That being said there was no yellow product available. Therefore I cut the product into red and white and placed the red portion on the back and back sides of the trailer and the white to the front sides. The only issue was separating the backing from the reflector which required a knife and reading glasses. The glue seems to be a once chance application.


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.


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.


lites and protectors are great … had put them on my 2 year old trailer and have upgraded to a beefier trailer and had to have them on the new one. the reflector strips are just what I needed on the new trailer since the strips the manufacturer put on the trailer were damaged in transit. the new strips were easy to install and reflect from a 1/2 block away. thanks again etrailer …...


I ordered a package of 8 DOT-C3 reflector strips for my trailer. The package indicated 8 strips but only contained 4. I called and the Service Representative immediately corrected the problem. A couple days later I received an additional 8 strips which was the original order.

There is no substitute for knowing your product. eTrailer meets or exceeds my expectation every time. They are very knowledgeable and professional!


Holds up to alot abuse on my son's wheel chair accessible van ramp and has not come off after alot of wear and tear. These are heavy duty and highly reflective.

Looks great on my trailer as well.


As advertised - reflective stickers. Ideal for the pontoon trailer which virtually disappears at night with no boat on it. The "etrailer difference" is that it shipped with an hour of placing the order so that even the least costly shipping put it in my mailbox in 4 business days.


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.


All items in the order for trailer wiring components were exactly what I ordered and all items were delivered promptly. Good communication from Etrailer with reasonable prices, and FREE SHIPPING!! Nice.


Easy to apply. They stick really good unlike some others I've had.


Good quality adhesive. Easy to work with while placing strips in place.

Sold the trailer however, the new lights helped me to get my asking price.

The item I ordered RE18T Conspicuity Reflectinve Tape, was good quality and will be used to replace damaged tape on my trailer. I also ordered a cover 87166SP for my Atwood Power Jack, it is an exact replacement for the original which was damaged by hail.

  • Reflector Option for Adding to 24x60 Cargo Carrier # E98874
    The easiest way to add reflectors to the 24x60 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.

  • Can I Put Conspicuity Reflective Tape on Diamond Pattern Steel Plate
    I don't recommend putting the 7" Long White/ 11" Long Red Conspicuity Reflective Tape - (8) 18" Strips # RE18T on diamond plates because it's going to be tough to get it to stick without bubbles everywhere. With that said, it will certainly stick to flat metal surfaces without issue.

  • Solution for Needing 6 inch by 2 inch Red Reflector
    Our best solution would be conspicuity tape like the Optronics part # RE18T which is 2 inches tall and can be cut down in length to match the 6 inches that you need.

  • 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 # RTR15066PB 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 near...

  • 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.

  • 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 sides...

    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.
