Peterson 162A Piranha LED Clearance Marker Light Dimensions

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.


P2-Rated Lights

Diagram of light spread for P2 rated light

A P2-rated light produces a 45-degree angle of light to either side of its centerline for a total of 90 degrees of coverage. This beam pattern can be seen straight on, but it cannot be seen clearly from the side. So this type of light can be used as either a side marker light or a clearance light, but it cannot function as both. If you need both functions, then you must install 2 separate lights on your trailer - one as a front or rear clearance light and one as a side marker light.


Recessed-Mount Light

Recessed Grommet Mount Trailer Light Installation Diagram

Recessed-mount trailer lights install with a grommet, which is often sold separately. These lights extend past the trailer surface and require a hole for installation. If replacing a light, you can utilize the pre-existing hole. If installing a new light, you will need to cut a hole or use a mounting bracket (sold separately) to complete the installation.

Video Transcript for Peterson Trailer Lights - Clearance Lights - 162A Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at part number 162A. This is the Peterson LED 2-1/2" Round Amber Trailer Clearance Light. The LED says seems we have a life expectancy of about 100,000 hours. It's going to contain a three diode, or three LED design. LEDs are going to be great replacement for incandescent lights. They're going to last longer. They're going to burn brighter, and they're going to be much more efficient.

You don't have to worry about replacing the bulbs, and you don't have to worry about brutal filaments. It's got the nice amber lens with a white base. This unit is sonically sealed for water proof design. The LED lights are going to use 1/10 of the electrical current needed to operate when compared to standard bulbs. This does operate between nine and 16 volts. We'll take a look at the overall diameter of the light.

It's going to give us the measurement of about two and a half inches. The depth, measuring just the lens. That's going to give us a measurement of about 13, 16, 7 inch. Here on the back side is our connection point for our wiring. This is designed to accept your industry standard two prong plug.

It's also designed to be mounted with a grommet. The grommet and the pig tail plug, are going to be sold separately. You can find those on our website using part number 162-18K. This unit is Department of Transportation compliant. We're going to go and hook it up to an external power source, that way you can see what it looks like with power running through it. I have a two prong plug here.

We're simply just going to place it into the female port on the back. Give it a good push so it sits right into the housing back there. You can see here, it sends out a really nice clear, consistent signal. The amber lens sends a lot of lights come through. It's going to contain three LEDs. The multi-diode design is really going to help optimize our light output. Again, this is designed to be used as a trailer clearance light. That's going to do it for our review of part number 162A. This is the Peterson LED 2-1/2" Round Trailer Clearance Light. .

Works great, the only reason for 4 stars is there was a sticker on it that left residue behind and was a pain to remove! All of the other led lights I ordered did not have stickers on the lens, I suggest you don't put them on these!

I used these as replacement lights for my box trucks. These are brighter than the original lights, and as they are LED, I expect them to last much longer as well. The price was also very good.

Good Product correctly shipped, no issues with the product. The order was a little messed up due to a incorrect grommet assembly for the light. CS is working to resolve the issue.

Review from a similar Piranha in Trailer Lights


Purchased these side marker lights specifically because they have two wires rather than just a positive wire and the ground attached to the mounting grommet. Lights were easy to mount and with rubber gasket they are protected from vibration.


Comments
All lights are working! Made one important change due to use in salt water. I ran all ground wires to the front of my boat trailer, so that the ground wire connections to the trailer would not be submerged when launching and retrieving my boat.

Review from a similar Piranha in Trailer Lights


These lights were the perfect brightness, very rugged, and easy to install inside protected areas of the frame on the updated raft trailer. etrailer has great selection, the website makes it easy to find the best parts for the job, and their communication is excellent. Their videos and reviews are invaluable.

Review from a similar Piranha in Trailer Lights


Replaced poorly designed lights on a travel trailer with these. The original lamps were not weather proof and used tensioned contacts that were prone to oxidation and corrosion from the elements. These LED lamps are sealed in epoxy so the elements will not affect them. Each lamp has two LEDs and a 6" wiring pigtail.

LIghts still working a year later

Review from a similar Piranha in Trailer Lights


Ordered 4 of your 2 1/2 inch round LED marker lights. Price was good, shipping time was good, but you placed large stickers over two of the lenses. It took a lot of effort and time to remove the goo off the lights from these stickers.


Comments
I will follow up with our Warehouse team so we can better label these lights.

I used these lights to replace the burnt out lights on the back and sides of my box trucks. These are much brighter than the originals, and as they are LED, I expect them to last much longer as well. The price was also great.

The lights are still working GREAT! Not one failure.

Small in size, but very bright. Lights were sealed well on the back and have plenty of pigtail length. Very happy with the light and price. Great value as long as they hold up over time.

3/15/2013 Item 168A - Just the right size light I was looking for to use as a side marker for a motorcycle cargo trailer. Well built product. I used with its black base (B168-18) that fit well also. LED lighting excellent. Just great to deal with etrailer folks.

Ask the Experts about this Peterson Trailer Lights

  • Replacement Recommendation For 2-1/2 Inch Amber Clearance Trailer Light
    We do not carry the replacement lens for the Peterson clearance light you referenced, but we do have a replacement light assembly that would work for you. I recommend the Peterson Piranha LED 2-1/2 inch Round Trailer Clearance Light, part # 162A that has the same dimensions as the 100-15a light you have. It measures 2-1/2 inches diameter and is 3/4 inches tall. This has 3-LED diodes and uses about 1/10 of the electrical current a standard light draws. The grommet and pigtail needed...

  • Recommended LED Clearance Light To Replace Peterson Incandescent Light
    The clearance light I recommend is the Peterson Piranha part # 162A. This is a 2-1/2 inch x 3/4 inch round light with 3 LED diodes and has an amber lens. The grommet and pigtail for this light is sold separately and is part # 162-18K. We have one surface mount clearance light that would be the same size as the lights you currently have. This is also an incandescent light and is the Optronics Round Trailer Clearance and Side Marker Light, part # MC58AB.

  • Recommendation for Bright, 2-1/2 Inch, Round, Trailer Tail and Clearance LED Lights
    The Peterson Piranha LED 2-1/2 Inch Round Trailer Clearance Light, 3 Diode # 162R light that you referenced is certainly a bright trailer light. This 3 diode LED light will be brighter than a standard trailer light for you. I have attached a review video of the # 162R and the # 162A for you to see what the lights look like when they are on in the dark. The Peterson Piranha lights will install on the trailer using a 2-wire pigtail and grommet, # 162-18K. These LED light will work great...
