Peterson 162R 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 - 162R Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at part number 162R. This is the Peterson LED 2-1/2 inch round red trailer clearance light. It's going to have a life expectancy of about 100,000 hours. It's going to contain three LEDs, or three diodes. LEDs make great replacements for incandescent lights. They're going to burn brighter, they're going to last longer, and they're going to be much more efficient.

This particular light is going to feature a sonically sealed design, so it's going to provide a nice, tight waterproof design. The LED lights use one tenth of the electrical current needed to operate when compared to standard bulbs, so the LED system is a great upgrade. This unit is going to require a grommet for mounting and a two-wire plug for complete installation. Those items are sold separately, and you can find those here on our website. You can see here it's got the two-prong connection point here on the back, so this will accept your industry standard two-prong plug. Taking a look at the measurements real quick, it's going to give us an overall diameter from edge to edge of about 2-1/2 inches. The depth of just the lens, that's going to measure about 13/16 of an inch deep.

This is Department of Transportation approved or compliant. We're going to go ahead and hook it up to our external power source. That way you can see what it looks like with power running to it. It's got the nice red lens. Again it's going to contain three LEDS, or three diodes. I'm going to take our two-prong plug, place it into the connection points here on the back of the housing.

Give it a good push; it creates a nice, tight seal. You can see here that it has the diodes functioning perfectly, a very bright light from Peterson, sends out a really nice consistent signal. Again, LEDs are going to be great replacements. It's got a multi-diode design, so it's got three LEDs. That's really going to optimize the light output. That's going to do it for today's review of part number 162R.

This is the Peterson LED 2-1/2 inch round trailer clearance light. .

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. 359172

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. 124430

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

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. 71000

I had lights similar to these as markers on my old trailer, and was looking to find similar for the front markers on my Avalanche. NIce and small, bright as can be, fully sealed behind, and I think they cost less than before ! 234117

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. 444876

3 stars because of the clunky design, no gasket or screws. That said these are nice and bright and add turn signals to the side of the motor home; hope fully that will make us more visible. Used # 12 SS screws 1 inch long to mount. 640028

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. 566956

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! 319966

I used four of these sealed led lights to replace the clearance lights that came on my Shorelander boat trailer. The hole spacing fit the existing holes and the lights have held up very well to over 100 launches and recoveries in salt water. I recommend them. 315748

Do you have a question about this Trailer Light?


  • Replacement Trailer Lights with Numbers PM 143 and PM 421
  • Although the DOT numbers you gave me are codes for what testing was done on the lights, I do have a solution for you. For your 2-1/2" round clearance light we have the Peterson Piranha LED Light # 162R with the wiring and grommet as part # 162-18K. We have had people ask about your PM 421 light before and have found that the Optronics # STL22RB with the grommet # a70gb are perfect LED replacements. If you need new pigtail wiring for these you can use part # A45PB or the angled part...

  • 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...
