    • Large, heavy-duty magnets provide excellent stability
  • Wishbone-style wiring harness can be easily routed beneath car
  • 4-Pole flat connector on harness is designed to hook up to your RV's 4-way trailer connector
  • Separate, 3' long harness with 4-way can be wired into tow vehicle or RV if no trailer connector is present
    • Includes quick-splice connectors for simple installation
  • Department of Transportation compliant

  • Bulb type: 2057 double filament
  • 3-Year limited warranty on housing and wiring only


A towed car is required by law to have functional brake and signal lights that illuminate at the same time as the brake and signal lights on the RV that is towing it. Most wiring kits require you to splice into your vehicle's electrical system to install diodes, but doing this can void your manufacturer's warranty. You also run the risk of making a mistake during installation that could result in potentially damaging electrical feedback. Magnetic tow lights eliminate this problem because they bypass your car's electrical system entirely and leave your wiring intact. Just mount the lights on your vehicle's trunk or roof with the heavy-duty magnetic bases. Then run the wiring harness up to the front of your towed car, across your tow bar, and then connect it to the 4-way flat on your motor home or tow vehicle. If your tow vehicle doesn't have a 4-way, an adapter is required.


This kit includes a 20' long wishbone-style wiring harness with a 4-way flat connector on the end. A separate 3' wiring harness with a 4-way plug can be used to install a 4-way on your tow vehicle or RV if it does not already have a trailer connector. Quick-splice connectors are included if needed. A 4-1/2' long harness connects both lights, giving you enough slack to position the lights where you want them.

Video Transcript for Optronics Trailer Lights TL21RK Review

Today, we're going to review Part Number TL21RK. These are the Optronics Magnetic Mount Stop, Turn and Tail Towing Light Kit with the 20-foot Wiring Harness. This is a temporary magnetic towing light kit that includes the two stop and turn tail lights, the 20-foot trailer wiring harness and a stand-along three foot long four way vehicle-end connector, in case your vehicle doesnt have one. It comes with the quick connectors to attach the four-way to the vehicle if needed in the instructions. This does come with a limited three year warranty. Now, that warranty does exclude the bulbs.

It is magnetic mount, so you can just attach this to, if youre towing a vehicle, if youtr flat-towing the vehicle and you dont do it very much and you just need to use the lights a few times, you can use this magnetic mount. You can use it on the trailer if you have a trailer that doesnt have lights and you might need to use it at night. Basically, this magnetic mount, I have a piece of metal here. You can see it will attach to it and stays pretty firm to it. Its got a good pull to it, pretty hard to detach it.

You just put one of these on each side. The cord here is about four-foot, so they will spread out four-foot width. Now, I do want to show this does come with this 20-foot wiring harness. It has a trailer connector that where you plug into the vehicle-end four-way if your vehicle has one or if you attach this one to it. To give example of the brightness of the lights, I have a four-way vehicle-end connector attached to a power source.

Im going to give you an idea. Ill plug this in; we turn on the tail lights. This is what the tail lights would look like. Now, Im going turn off the overhead lights to give you an idea how bright they are in somewhat darkness. Then if you apply the brakes, as you can see, thats with the brakes and if we do a turn signal, I want to give you an idea of just the turn signal.

Thats how the turn signal would look like. Now, well go ahead and turn off or turn back on the overhead lights. That should do it for the review of the Part Number TL21RK. This is the Optronics Magnetic Mount Stop, Turn and Tail Towing Light Kit with the 20-foot Wiring Harness.

I am using these for added visibility on the back of a large bike rack that pretty much stays on the car all the time. I do not suggest using the magnets as the only form of attachment as they are not strong enough to keep the lights attached when going over bumps. I zip-tied them to the frame of the bike rack. At first, I had them sticking out from the bottom of the rack, and they were fine until I went up a steep hill and one of the lights got knocked off on the road. These lights are extremely well-built because instead of snapping the light, the rather large zip-ties broke. The light still works great after the incident. I now have them sticking out the sides to give more ground clearance, and they seem to be doing fine. For my application, I had to replace the wire between the lights with a longer one, but that was not difficult and will not be necessary in a typical application. At least the lights are easy to disassemble to access the wiring. The only way these could be improved would be to add strong neodymium magnets and to make the red lenses screw on (instead of snapping on) for easier access to the bulbs for replacement. Otherwise, a perfect product. For the record, I did not need to use the included vehicle wiring harness or splice connectors, since my application required an electronic light controller. 53035

works great for towing my jeep. just plug the four flat into the factory trailer wiring on the tow vehicle, set the lights on the bumper and they work perfect. the magnets are strong but the thicker the metal they are on the better they hold. steel on my bumper is thick enough for a strong hold but I tried thinner metal and the hold is weaker so you may need to add some straps 211070

I purchased a Curt hitch for my 09 CRV. I also bought a wiring harness and a set of magnetic lights for attachment to vehicles. I was able to install the hitch in less than an hour. It took me 30 minutes to connect the wiring. The lights are very simple to connect and only hook up one way. The instructions included links to videos that made the job a snap. The instructions said to put the wiring inside the car by the spare tire when not in use to preserve the connector. what a great suggestion! I did not put a single mark on the car and the hitch looks great. 29217

Perfect, just what we needed to get our trailer home from storage so I could work on the finding the root cause for the failure of the permanent trailer lights. Now that the permanent lights have been fixed, the temporary magnetic lights are stored with the trailer sort of like a spare tire, knowing how fiddly trailer wiring can sometimes be. It's worth the small investment for the extra measure of safety in case the permanent trailer lights fail again far from home. 82108

The product itself is well made and reliable. However, I didn't realize how much the wire laying across the hood of my dinghy would move while driving. This resulted in significant buffing of the surface that required several rounds of compounding to remove. I have since moved to a wireless unit. If you plan on using this product, I would recommend running the wires under the hood or taping them down in a way that doesn't damage your dinghy's surface. 376471

After struggling with my trailer lighting system for years, I gave up and bought a portable system from etrailer. Within 5 minutes of unwrapping it, everything worked great and I am not longer spending hours trying to trouble shoot the old system. The magnets that hold the lights on the trailer are very strong, but I still use a bungy cord on each one just in case I hit a large bump in the road. Thanks etrailer, excellent product! 295763

by: Silver Bullet06/20/2015


Speed of delivery was great and the product was exactly what I expected. Surprisingly, the magnets hold really well, I was concerned the lights might fall off when I went over a large bump. The wiring was smaller/thinner grade than the wiring in my vehicle, but that did not present any issues. All in all, this was worth the small investment. Quick and easy. 205882

The product arrived quickly and was exactly as advertised. The light kit is the perfect solution for the car I tow behind my RV, but also use by itself. I like the fact that it is totally portable, mounts high up on the vehicle for good visibility and is quick and easy to install when needed. 391247

I needed to move a trailer to a location where I could troubleshoot and repair the trailer lights. Worked well, good price, and reasonable shipping cost, After I had used the lights I happened to see a similar setup at Walmart which was $10 MORE than the total I paid etrailer. 140114

Strong magnets hold the lights in place even on a bouncy trailer. Lead wire length is sufficient for the average towing vehicle or trailer. My only complaint is that the wire length between the two lights needs to be a foot longer for my uses. 268014

Purchased the 10" drop/ rise receiver to make hooking up the tow bar to my jeep level. My jeep has 4" of lift on 33's and the truck is a stock 2013 dodge ram. This receiver leveled them perfectly. The light kit I purchased also works great. 200064

The other items include a light/wiring kit, base plates, a supplementary braking system, a high/low hitch adapter and...

  • Parts Needed To Flat Tow A 2004 Honda Civic Behind Motorhome
  • To flat tow your 2004 Honda Civic you will need vehicle specific base plates, a tow bar, safety chains, a supplemental braking system, tow wiring for your Civic, and a wiring extension. For base plates, I recommend a Blue Ox Base Plate Kit. If your Civic is a Hybrid, you will want to use # BX2236. If your Civic is a standard model, not SI, SIR, or Hybrid, you will want to use # BX2234. I recommend the Blue Ox Alpha Tow Bar # BX7365 to use with the Blue Ox baseplates. The Alpha tow...

  • Installing Winch Mount & Base Plates on 2016 Jeep Wangler Unlimited 75th Anniversary
  • Blue Ox base plate kit # BX1134, which fits various versions of the 2016 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited including your 75th edition, can be installed along with a winch mount so long as they do not share the same mounting points on the vehicle. Usually on Jeeps a winch mount will attach to the bumper beam rather than the frame where base plates attach. Flat towing requires a few specific components in addition to the base plates, such as a tow bar like the Alpha # BX7365. The linked articles...

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 1994 and 1997 Jeep Wrangler Behind a Class C Motorhome
  • The Bulldog Stubby Bumper # BDW21000 is not rated for flat towing. I spoke to Bulldog about using it to flat tow and they said they haven't tested it long-term in that fashion but if the bumper is reinforced it could be used. It is confirmed to fit both the 1994 and 1997 Jeep Wranglers you have. The Bulldog Stubby bumper has 3/4 inch shackles so you can use the Roadmaster Adapters # RM-035 to connect to a tow bar. The tow bar I recommend is the Roadmaster Falcon 2 # RM-520 and safety...

  • Troubleshooting Magnetic Light Kit for Blinkers Not Working Correctly
  • I would check the connector of your tow vehicle and test it for voltage with a circuit tester like our # 3808. A magnetic towing light kit like the Optronics Tow Bar Lights # TL21RK that you referenced should be able to provide any and all tail light functions when installed correctly. It sounds like the problem is in the trailer connector of your tow vehicle. Using the # 3808 you should test for voltage on the 4-way on all of the circuits to make sure that your vehicle is wire correctly....

Each of these is detailed in the linked article which may be a good starting point for you.

Other helpful flat towing articles are also included for your reference. These concern two of the items required, high/low hitch adapters and braking systems.

  • Parts Required for Safe & Legal Flat Towing of 1998 Jeep Cherokee Behind Class B Motorhome
  • Virtually all U.S. states and Canadian provinces require that a towed vehicle be equipped with a supplemental braking system of one type or another. Even if you happened to be towing in an area where one was not required my guess is that only a few miles would be required for you to see the merits of a toad braking system! Supplementary braking systems come in many forms. There are purely mechanical systems like the Blue Ox AutoStop # BX88100-3050 and portable/wireless electronic systems...

  • Modifications and Equipment Necessary to Flat Tow 1999 Pontiac Sunfire
  • According to my research, the 1999 Sunfire with the 4T40E automatic transmission is flat-towable, subject to any recommendations listed in the owners manual. From what I have read, the fuses for the instrument panel lighting need to be pulled to prevent the battery from being drained. The steering column should be unlocked by turning the ignition key to the OFF position, which is the next position from LOCK. The transmission should be in neutral. I would strongly recommend you confirm this...

  • Base Plates and Accessories to Flat Tow a 1997 Suzuki Sidekick
  • In order to flat tow the vehicle, you would need the tow bar, base plates, wiring for the vehicle tail lights, safety cables and a supplemental braking system, depending on the state you were planning on towing the vehicle through. Since you already have a tow bar, you would start with a base plate. Blue Ox does not offer a base plate kit that is compatible with a 2WD 4 door model Sidekick, but there is a Roadmaster Base Plate Kit, part # 1007-2 that will work, as long as your Sidekick...

  • How Strong are the Mounting Magnets on Optronics Towing Lights # TL21RK
  • Describing the strength of the magnets used on the Optronics Magnetic Mount Tail Lights would be fairly difficult, as magnet strength is pretty subjective. The magnet on one of the lamps is strong enough to suspend a 6 pound ball mount, as you can see by watching the short video I produced for you. Hopefully, this will give you an idea of how strong the magnet is. The thickness of the metal the magnetic light is attached to will also have a bearing on how well the magnet adheres...
