Optronics BUL72 Series LED Utility 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.

I installed two of these lights in the rear bumper of my truck for reverse lights. They are not quite as bright as I was expecting but still pretty darn bright. I used these lights with part number A45CB pigtails and the rubber grommets (A70GB) for my install. Everything arrived on time and ready to use. Overall I am very pleased with these lights.

I purchased four of these lights for backup lights. Two for my ranch hand bumper and two for my headache rack. They throw a great amount of light for $20. I have plans to put them on a switch with a relay so they will work in reverse and on a switch. Good construction and great company to order from.

This product is the standard equipment on my 2014 Phoenix trailer. I somehow cracked the original unit and because of the crack, my original filled with water slowly and eventually was damaged. At first, I bought a replacement from another online retailer that had high ratings. When I asked my kids if the replacement worked, they looked confused. Confused because the replacement was not nearly as bright as the originals. Then I contacted my trailer customer service dept and found this was the part I needed. For backing into dark little Florida ramps just before daybreak, this is the light to have.

Great company to do business with. Ordered several light related products, marker lights , marker light bases, utility lights and LED replacement bulbs.

The lights are very bright and i was happy with the product for the most part, however the lights did not come with new groumets and i had to use the old ones. And the standard shipping to California from etrailer was pretty slow.

Best lights Ive ever owned

Products work great, service was prompt. Would do business again when I need tail lamps in the future. Pretty good selection, prices are excellent for the products listed. I upgraded my boat trailer lamps for better lighting and a newer look. Of which I got both. I am thinking that the clear utility light will be great backing up at the boat ramp when it is dark. The email follow up on status of the order was great too.

These lights are being used as (non-DOT-compliant) reverse lights for a livestock trailer. I used these as opposed to the DOT-approved lights primarily because they are supposed to be brighter and they are nearly half the price. I am very happy with them and, although I hope there are no state troopers checking for a DOT stamp on the lights in the future, I would highly recommend. Please understand that these are not like flashlights, they are more like floodlights. They create a very wide light pattern that shoots all around. For the limited number of times I use my livestock trailer to haul cattle to the sale barn at night, I know these lights will be perfect. You just can't beat etrailer for their customer service. I had these in my hands in less than 24 hours and I live in West Central Illinois. I have placed half a dozen orders from etrailer in the recent past and the service is unmatched.

Replaced both reverse lights on my 2009 Mastercraft trailer. New lights are much brighter than factory and work well. Replaced both with grommet (item A70GB).

So far so good, they are working as expected and I may have to replace a few on the other side of the trailer with the same items.

Received product very quickly through standard shipping. The light is for interior use in a horse trailer and replaces a standard non-LED light. It provides as much or more light than the original. I plan on replacing additional lights with these as needed in the future.

Lights came well packed, and complete. These lights produced a diffused light, which I wanted. I only tested one in the garage with a power supply, it worked well for me. I'm using them as load lights on a car transport.

Trouble free bright sealed light that works great. I'll only recommend using LED lights for any boat trailer !

This is really a bright light for the interior of our cargo trailer. I installed it right in the front V top to shine all the way to the ramp. It does a good job.

  • Replacement Optronics Clear Oval Trailer Utility Light for BUL72CBGK on a MasterCraft Trailer
    Yes, the difference is that the BUL72CBGK has the grommet included. To replace both the light and grommet you will need # BUL72CB and # A70GB. I looked at a few images of MasterCraft Trailers and while we don't have the exact information of what it was outfitted with, this light appears to be similar, if you are looking for the red light with clear lens you will want # STL82RCB. Typically the number of the light will be stamped on the back of the unit itself. I have linked the above...

  • Pigtail Recommendation for a Utility Light part # BUL72CB
    The wiring pigtail to use with the part # BUL72CB that you mentioned is the part # A45CB. This plugs right into the back of the light and gives you the wiring you would need to install the light. The white wire for the harness would be for the ground and the red would be for power.

  • Parts Needed to Add LED Reverse Lights to an ATV Trailer
    Led light # BUL72CB is not certified as use as a backup light. For an LED light that is designed for use as a backup use # BUL10CB. You will also need grommet # a70gb and wiring pigtail # A49PB. For wire you can use # 16-3B-1 sold in 1 foot increments. You will need to wire in the power wire to the reverse light circuit on the 7-Way. For the lights to work you have to have a functioning reverse light circuit on the vehicle side 7-Way.

  • Troubleshooting Optronics BUL72CB Clear Oval 10 Diode LED with Only 4 Diodes Lighting
    If you are using the 2-Wire Pigtail for Optronics Trailer Lights - 2-Prong PL-10 Plug - 10" Lead # A45CB with the Optronics # BUL72CB lights, then all 10 diodes should be lighting. If you are using the 3 wire pigtail # A47PB then you only need to connect the white and red or the black and white wires. The red or black wire should give you the full 10 diodes, where one of them would only give you the center 4. It sounds like the connections are to the wrong spot on your lights since you...

  • Utility Light for the Back of a Truck for Backing Up a Boat Trailer
    I think I have a better solution for you since a bracket is not available. Take a look at the ball mount hitch light # SRECEIVERS1160X2. This light fits between a ball mount and the face of the receiver on the hitch. You then wire it in to the reverse light circuit. I have included a link to a video review for you.

  • Can Sealed, 6-1/2" LED Clear Oval Trailer Utility Light be Used with Wall Switch
    The light part # BUL72CB does use a three prong connector but in reality you only end up using two of the prongs. One for power and one for ground. The connector needed is the part # A45CB which can easily be used with a switch.

This light is also 6-1/2 inches long and 2-1/8 inches wide. Depending on your needs you might also need the grommet # a70gb, or wire pigtails # A47PB or the # A45CB. I have included a diagram showing these measurements for you, and a couple of videos for your reference.

    I can help you add reverse lights to your trailer. Yes, It is important to pay attention to DOT compliance when adding lights on your boat trailer. Compliance will be met if you use the Optronics # BUL10CB light as your backup light. The # BUL72CB is purposed for a utility light and will not meet the criteria for reverse lights on the roadway.

  • Difference in Brightness Between # BUL10CB Backup Light and # BUL72CB Utility Light
    Both the # BUL10CB and the # BUL72CB are 10 diode lamps, and therefore neither lamp would really be brighter than the other. The main difference between the two is how the light is focused. Because the # BUL10CB lamp is DOT compliant as a back-up light, the light would be more diffused over a wider area. By contrast, the # BUL72CB which is NOT certified as a back up light would have the light more focused on a smaller area. Each lamp would output a similar amount of light, but the # BUL72CB...

  • Replacement Interior Lamp for 2008 Exiss Sport Horse Trailer
    Your existing lamp is an Optronics # BU70CB. The lamp is sealed, so the actual bulb inside is inaccessible. If the bulb burns out, you'd need to replace the entire lamp assembly, part # BU70CB. Because this lamp is rated as a reverse light for when the trailer is backing up, the DOT limits its brightness, and because it's an incandescent lamp it'll have a rather limited lifespan. I'd suggest going with an LED utility lamp like part # BUL72CB. You'd get a lamp that's the same dimensions,...

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.
