Optronics STL72RB Oval Sealed LED Tail Light Diagram

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.


Recessed-Mount Light

Recessed mount light

Recessed-mount trailer lights install underneath a grommet (A70GB - sold separately). These lights will extend into the mounting surface and require that a hole be cut into your trailer.

These LED lights are fantastic. I bought the gasket that goes with them as I have a small utility trailer that had rectangular inserts for an older style light. With a few custom modifications I was able to make it work. These lights are super bright and do a fantastic job.

I have a Haulmark utility trailer. One tail light was giving me trouble and I tried fixing it but decided to just replace it with these. They are brighter and fit right in to the old grommet. They were a bit loose so I wrapped some e-tape around them and they are staying in place just fine. I also ordered the pigtails and soldered and heat-shrinked the connections - the factory connecting were "scotch-locks", which I hate. After I did this, I looked closely at the old lights and realized that there was a 3 prong plug which I might have been able to use rather than doing new connections and soldering them, but by doing what I did, I now have tight connections and I can easily replace the light if I ever have to (I got rid of the scotch locks). Yes, I could maybe have soldered the old connections and used the old plug, but it was constructed in such a way that I didn't realize it was there (I thought it was part of the light body). My picture shows the old light and the old plug disconnected from it and the new LED in place on my trailer. It works great - glad I did this. It's much brighter than the old light.

Bright and work well so far, have not yet submerged into the lake. But a word of warning.. I was surprised the lights were just tossed loose into a shipping box. No packaging, no rubber grommets, no pigtails. Luckily both the old rubber grommets and electrical connectors were in good shape on my trailer, and the new lights didn’t get too banged up in the shipping box.

Needed to replace 18 year old incandescent lights on boat trailer. Wow these things are BRIGHT. I don't know why they still sell incandescent ones...Buy THESE LEDs. I bought them because they said they had 10 LED's...and yes, they are bright. Fixture seems well made and even comes with grease preloaded in the contact sockets to minimize corrosion. These look and feel way better than the price point would have you believe.

Needed these lights for one of our cargo trailers. I had a rear light go out, and these units are sealed... You can't buy just a replacement bulb. They fit perfectly, and are bright and reliable. Customer service was amazing, quick delivery. I'm a contractor, with 6 of these large cargo trailers, and using these LED replacement lights is the only way to go. They never burn out! Love Etrailer.

The light function is still working, but they are inconsistent. Sometimes the lights are dim and then they will eventually go back to normal. I am constantly getting alerts in my truck to check the lights. I may just throw them out and get better ones.

Perfect replacement for my OEM incandescent lights on my cargo trailer, I pried the old ones out of their grommets, these LED's used the same electrical connectors so I just plugged them in and pressed the lights back into the grommet, 4 lamps replaced in less than 15 minutes. These are a great improvement over the old bulbs.

  • Cutout Dimensions Needed for Flush Mount Oval LED Trailer Lights
    The Optronics LED Trailer Tail light - Stop, Tail, Turn - Submersible - 10 Diodes - Red Lens # STL72RB will use the PVC Grommet for 6-1/2" Oval Trailer Tail Lights # A70GB for mounting. With this combination the opening you need to cut is a 6-11/16" long x 2-5/8" wide hole like you can find on the mounting bracket # BK70BB.

    I'm not 100 percent sure what you are referring to in regards to the wire, but it sounds like maybe you need to know the functions of the pigtail harness that is needed for the Optronics LED Trailer Tail Light # STL72RB. This light uses a 3-wire pigtail, either 3-Wire Pigtail # A45PB or Right Angle 3-Wire Pigtail # A47PB. This pigtail has three wires, a white, black, and red. The white wire is ground, the black wire is the power, and the red wire is the brake/turn signal, which is...

  • Installing Optronics # STL72RB LED Trailer Stop, Turn and Taillight
    The Optronics # STL72RB is designed to mount into an oblong hole in either the trailer or a bracket like # BK70BB. A grommet like # A70GB would push into the 6-11/16 x 2-5/8 inch hole in the trailer or bracket, and the # STL72RB lamp would push into the grommet. If you'd care to send me a photo or two of your old lamps, I'd he happy to recommend replacement lamps that would easily install on your boat trailer.

    We do have a large selection of trailer lights available. In order to choose replacements for your existing assemblies, I first recommend checking to see if you can find a model number or manufacturer information listed somewhere on the assembly itself. If you cannot locate this, then you will want to measure the unit in order to pick out a compatible replacement. Unfortunately, trailer manufacturers do not often maintain a record of smaller parts that they install on their trailers,...

    The most amount of diodes we have in a light that is a direct replacement for the Trailer Tail Light part # STL72RB is going to be the Trailer Tail Light part # STL572RB for red or part # STL572AB for amber. All three of the above lights have the same mounting dimension and use the same wiring harness.

For a grommet to install it you would want part # A70GB, for a bracket instead you would want the # BK70BB, and then for a wiring pig tail you would want the # A45PB.

  • Marine Masters Boat Trailer Replacement LED Trailer Tail Light Recommendation
    You can pretty easily swap your trailer's taillights to LED style lights as it's basically just a matter of swapping the assemblies. You wouldn't need any special wiring harnesses or anything. You'd just need to find the best fitting assemblies and wire them in and mount them. I couldn't find any clean shots of the rear of your trailer but I believe the kit you'd want is the part # TLL16RK which gives you two standard style of trailer LED taillights.

  • Flush Mounted LED Lights for Flatbed Trailer
    Thank you for the photos; based on what you showed, you would want oval LED lights that are in the 6-1/2" x 2" range, though you would need exact dimensions to ensure the right fit. For example, # STL72RB is a red oval light that measures 6-7/16" x 2-5/16" x 1-3/4" deep while # STL70RB is another red oval light but with dimensions of 6-1/2" x 2-1/4" x 1-1/8" deep.

    I have a solution for you, but we do not carry Glo-Brite lights, so replacing it with the same brand will not be something I can offer you. Instead, to replace your Glo-Brite 9852-88, I recommend using the Optronics LED Trailer Tail Light # STL72RB. This is also a 10 diode LED light with stop, turn and tail light functions like the light you're replacing and also measures 6-7/16" long and 2-1/8" wide like your Glo-Brite light.

    The longest tail/turn/stop led light bar that we have that is similar to the Optronics # STL2RB that you referenced is the Optronics # STL79RB, which is 17 inches long and 1 inch wide. This unit is sealed so it is waterproof and contains 11 LEDs. Past the 17 inch point, you get into 48 inch running lights that go on the tailgate of a truck. I have attached a brief video demonstrating the 17 inch bar.

  • Turn Signals on Trailer are Dim and Not Work with Running Lights On
    There are a couple of possible reasons why the directional lights on your trailer are dim and do not work at all when the running lights are turned on. The most common cause for this type of issue is a weak ground. A weak ground connection will usually allow enough current through for some lights to pass, but not enough for all of them. Considering that the running lights will remain continuously on when activated, unlike the brake or turn signals, they will require more power and there...

    The correct grommet you need for use with the trailer LED light part # STL72RB that you have is the part # A70GB. And if you need to wire the light or replace the connector you can use the right angle pigtail, item # A47PB, or the straight pigtail, item # A45PB.

  • Troubleshooting Left Turn Signal Light on Trailer that Is Dim But Not With Brake Lights
    It is most likely a ground issue that is causing the problems you described on your trailer. Since several lights are behaving strange I would first check to make sure the main ground for the trailer is connected to a clean metal surface. You can also try running the ground wire of each light back to the main trailer ground and that will help as well. If the lights ground through the mounting hardware you also will want to make sure that they are attached to a clean metal surface.

  • Troubleshooting Excessive Trailer Tire Wear
    The first place I would look is at the suspension components of your trailer. Worn out suspension can cause tires to wear strange. You could jack up your trailer (use jackstands) and get underneath your trailer and see if you can find any movement in your suspension components. While the trailer is jacked up also try and spin the wheels of the trailer. They should spin freely by hand but you should feel a light drag from the brake assemblies. If this drag isn't present the assemblies...

  • Option for Towing Trailer with 12 Volt Lights with 24 Volt Tow Vehicle
    I think your only real option would be to replace the trailer lights on your trailer with lights that are compatible with 24 volt systems since there isn't an adapter available that we offer that would work for converting your 24 volt system to work with a 12 volt lighting system. Right now, we have a few select 24 volt tail lights. We have # STL23R24B and # STL90R24B. For turn/marker lights we have # STL90A24B and # STL23A24B. And for reverse lights we have # BUL23C24B and # BUL90C24B.

  • Tail Lights and Clearance Lights that Can be Used on Both a 12 Volt System and 24 Volt System
    For a tail light that can run off of 12 volt or 24 volt systems you can use Transit tail light # STL90R24B. For clearance lights you can use # MCL55A1224B for an amber light that works with 12 and 24 volt systems or # MCL55R1224B for a red light. For these lights use pigtail # A46PB and grommet # A54GB. Or for surface mount clearance/marker lights that are 12-24 volt compatible you can use # MCL66A24B for amber and # MCL66R24B for red.
