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. .

Average Customer Rating:  4.8 out of 5 stars   (88 Customer Reviews)

18" L x 2" W; alternating red/white reflector tape; 4 strips; DOT certified; rated for 7 years of use


High quality reflective material, and a good adhesive so it will stay on the vehicle.



Amazing that in my salty, corrosive, coastal wet climate, that these are not peeling or de-laminating on the trailer I applied them to.


Great product....easy to apply.


everything the on-line catalog said they were. came in good shape not bent or tore up. Seem to have good adhesive on the back of the strip.

Joe F.


working fine!


Red Conspicuity Reflective Tape works great.

Fulton FHD2500 Drop Leg was easy to install and saves me the trouble of carrying extra blocks of wood around to place under the old jack to get the trailer tongue up to height of hitch ball, time saver.

The products were delivered on time.


Great rack.


A perfect product to replace original equipment , keeps the trailers looking in top shape. It also keeps the resale value up, if one decides to sell or trade later. Everything that I have ordered from e-trailer, did just that. The price is good, the packaging is also good, and the shipping is very timely. This makes shopping online a pleasure.


Easy to put on and appears to be durable after a few months. I had enough for cargo carrier and bike rack, with replacement stash.


Just what I needed to add some marking to the ramps on my open car trailer. The only lighting have is the two combo lights attached to the fender - no lights on the very rear of the ramps. These will fill the gap until I can work out a viable soultion. They are very reflective and so far have held up very well. (I installed a set 3 years ago on the corners of the trailer)


And great reflectionness?? Now when I crash my trailer lights at least there'll be something back there to show I tried.

Pat B.


After a year in the weather and sun the tape is like new.


Purchase this item for my small Continental boat trailers as an extra safety measures in case i break down in Miami FL busy highways they are the perfect length for side mount and the reflection in low and high light setting is perfect thank you guys God bless....


These are the best reflectors you can get anywhere, and both the price and service from Etrailer are top notch!

In fact, we got status and shipping notifications right away so we KNEW that the order was ion progress, and the delivery was on its way!

Etrailer knows how to give great customer service - which is all too rare these days. We will definitely order from them again - so should you!


I never leave reviews but felt compelled to based on my outstanding experience with your company. From the great product and installation videos on each product I bought, to the great customer service and fast shipping, I wish every online purchase went as smooth as this transaction.

In terms of the cargo carrier, well built and works as advertised. You guys are awesome, keep up the good work.


Exactly what I was looking for to add to the trailer hitch cargo carrier that for some reason didn't have anything reflective on it.


Great Customer Service, friendly and knowledgeable staff, promptly delivered quality products! Thank You, keep up the great job!



Your products are awesome, thank you!


Great quality-updating tape on 24 foot trailer.


Thick sticker reflectors, perfect for any trailer


Easy to put on and reflect very well. Make sure you know exactly where you want to place them on the trailer because if you try to pull it off it will tear. Great price and very functional.


Again, I want to say I am just taken back by the service you provide...I haven't seen "great" quality like this in years...I certainly will return as I have more needs and I have been passing this on to others...
great product as well !!!

  • How High Up Will Curt Cargo Carrier C18145 be when Used on a 2015 Hyundai Accent Hatchback
    You would be looking at about 9 inches from the ground to the bottom the receiver on your 2015 Hyundai Accent hatchback using a trailer hitch such as # 24884. To that 9 inches you would add 1-1/2 inches for the wall thickness of the receiver and the opening. Then you would add about another 6 inches for the height of the basket part of 17x46 Curt Cargo Carrier for 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches - Steel - 500 lbs Item # C18145. That is a total of 16-1/2 inches from the ground to the top of the carrier...

  • Reflectors and Conspicuity Tape for Use on Vehicle Mud Flaps
    If the Custer 12-inch reflector # RFL-12R is too big for your mud flap application and you do not want to use two of the smaller size # RE15RK then I suggest you consider Conspicuity Tape # RE418T. This is 2-inches wide x 18-inches long overall and the red portion is 11-inches; this can be cut down to your desired 10-inch length and it can be riveted in place or secured with hardware of your choosing. It does have a self-adhesive backing for installation on trailer surfaces but on your...

  • Cargo Carrier Recommendations For My 2017 Chevrolet Silverado 1500
    The 19x60 Curt Cargo Carrier for 2" Hitches - Aluminum - Folding - 500 lbs # C18100 will work on your 2017 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 if you have the 2 inch hitch receiver already installed on your vehicle. The carrier is 60 inches long by 20 inches wide and it has an easy 2-piece, bolt-together assembly. The Pin and Clip for 2 inch and 2-1/2 inch Hitches - 5/8 inch Diameter x 3-1/4 inch Span # PC3 will work with the cargo carrier and 2 inch hitch. You could also use The Anti-Rattle Trailer...

  • Dimensions on Replacement Reflector for MaxxTow Wheelchair Carrier
    I went out to our warehouse to take a look at the Replacement Reflector for MaxxTow Wheelchair Carrier # FHG65VR referenced in your question. I measured a length of 3-11/16 inches and a height of 1-15/16 inches. The distance between the two mounting screws on center is 2 inches. I have also attached an image with these dimensions labeled for you to check out. If this will not work for your carrier, another option is conspicuity tape like the Optronics # RE418T. This is alternating red/white...

  • Availability of Plain Reflective Hitch Cover
    We do not carry a hitch cover that features reflectors, but you could pretty easily rig one up using the Curt Chrome trailer hitch cover, part # F-10P and conspicuity tape like # RE418T. You'd simply peel off the backing of the high-quality tape and apply it to the hitch cover as you wish.

  • Recommended Magnetic Towing Lights for Pickup Carrying Canoe and Towing Log Splitter
    We have several styles of magnetic tow lights that you can consider for use on your pickup that carries and canoe and tows a log splitter. Most of these have a 20-foot 4-pole flat type trailer connector, such as # TL21RK (which I like for its strong heavy-duty magnets and low price). We also have a Hopkins wireless kit # C6304, available at a higher price point, which requires use of 8 AA batteries but which gives a range of up to 65-feet. We also have amber warning light products, also...

  • Reflectors for Curt Aluminum Cargo Carrier
    Although the 19x60 Curt Cargo Carrier for 2" Hitches - Aluminum # C18100 does not have mounting holes specifically for adding reflectors, there is a simple way to add them to this carrier. I recommend using 7" Long White/ 11" Long Red Conspicuity Reflective Tape # RE418T or Optronics Trailer Reflector # RE10RB, which will easily stick on the carrier's sides. Keep in mind you will also need the Pin and Clip # PC3 or Anti-Rattle Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock # 63232 to secure this carrier...

  • Adding Lights and Reflectors to Make Pro Series Trailer Hitch Cargo Carrier More Visible
    You have a couple of light kit options for the Pro Series carrier # 63153. For regular incandescent lights you can use # 20174. And for the LED light version use # 98174LED. I have linked a couple of videos on these light kits for you. To add reflective strips you can use # RE418T. You will likely have to trim them to fit but they will definitely make the carrier more visible. You could use marker # DM35RS to attach to the basket so that you can see it in your mirrors. The pole is 35...
