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 Piranha LED Clearance or Side Marker Trailer Light Review and Installation

Ryan: How's it going Ryan here at etrailer.com. Today we're going to be taking a look at and showing you how to install, the Piranha LED clearance or side marker trailer light. Now this light, it's going to work great as either a direct replacement, or even an upgrade. And I say upgrade because over traditional style incandescent bulbs, this one's actually an LED. Now since it has those three LED diodes, it's going to be much brighter and last a really long time. You have no brittle filaments to worry about.

The days of having to keep spare bulbs inside of your truck's glove box are long gone. The light is going to be two and a half inches in diameter and it's going to be 15 sixteenths of an inch thick. That way you should be able to figure out which light is going to be the best option for your trailer.Now if we flip the light over, it's going to be sonically sealed, so everything will be nice and tight so it's going to be waterproof. And once you kind of get the light in your hand and feel it, you can just tell what it's really well built and should last for a really long time. Now the light is going to accept these standard two prong connector, like we have plugged in right now.

Now if your connector is damaged or anything like that and you need to get a new one, you can find them here etrailer.com. And since the LEDs are going to last a really long time, once you get the light installed, you're not going to have to worry about messing around with it. Speaking of installation, let's go ahead and put this in together now. To begin your installation, he moved back to the light that you're wanting to replace. In our particular situation, it is this missing side-marker.Now if your light is not missing, you'd simply remove it.

Now the way the lights are moved, you can kind of just push in on one side of the light and it'll kind of spin sideways and you're able to pull it out of the grommet. And to disconnect it, there's nothing special about these, you simply just pull back and that'll separate the two. Other than that, once you have it removed, you can simply plug the light in. Now, even though these terminals come with a little bit of dielectric grease on them, I like to add just a little bit more cause it can't hurt anything. And if you'd like to add some more too, find it here at etrailer.com.

Let's get those coated, plug that into the terminals and push it down to completely connected. But the light plugged in now, you simply just push it back into the grommet. Sometimes it can fit a little bit tight to the grommet, so we kind of just work around it and push back and get it to fully seat. Now it's always a good idea to test light, so you go ahead and put power to it and turn it on and make sure everything is working properly. And that'll finish up our look at and our installation of the Piranha LED clearance or side marker trailer light.

Not sure its anyones fault but the LED marker lights on my trailer fasten to the wall with screws and today that style is not made as it was in 2017...So i am rating the lights "average" cause till i open the light up without busting it I got to make it work and your lights are just the same as the rest...lights look fine and i will let you know how it works out...



by:

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.

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.

Exact replacement for my trailer. The factory incandescent bulbs had faded and connections were failing. With a quick inspection with a multi meter I found that all the lamp bases checked out.
I installed this Amber and Red marker lamps through out the whole trailer. I now “glow” going down the road at night. I highly recommend these replacement lamps.

  • 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...

  • 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 #...
