Expert Answers about Work Lights


  • LED Work Light For Exterior Use On Vehicle and Trailer
  • The Optronics Unitek LED Directional Light # 825LED does not use a sealed housing so I would not recommend using it on an exterior application. Water and insects could get inside through the openings in the mount. I recommend the Low Profile LED Flood Light # OPT64FR as this is a sealed housing and will broadcast a wide light across an area. It has a built in 45 degree downward angle to keep the light near the vehicle/trailer it is connected.It is designed to be mounted to a flat surface...

  • Replacing Halogen Flood Lights On a Haulmark Enclosed Trailer for LED Units
  • I recommend the Buyers Products Ultra Bright LED Flood Light in either 4,050 Lumens # 3371492190 or 9,000 Lumens # 3371492196, to replace the halogen lights on your Haulmark Race Enclosed Trailer. You will want to verify the fitment for these as I am not 100% sure of your opening dimensions. These lights are 5.9" wide, 4.8" tall from the mounting plate and 1.45" thick. Both lights create a flood pattern of light with their 15 diodes. The 4,050 lumen light only uses 24 watts of power...

  • Can Optronics Thinline LED Utility Light # UCL59CB Be Used as Backup Light on Trailer
  • I do have a really similar option that will work great, however the Optronics Thinline LED Utility Light # UCL59CB that you referenced can't be used as a backup light on your trailer. This is simply because the light doesn't meet DOT standards, which takes things like brightness into account (it can be TOO bright) for this type of application. I instead recommend the Command Hot-Line LED Trailer Backup Light # 328-003-6017W, which features the same light bar design as the model you...

  • Outdoor Power Switch for Buyers Products Flood Lights
  • The Buyers Products # 3371492196 LED flood light does not have a built-in on/off switch. I would use the Seaflow # SE76FR Battery Disconnect switch for my outdoor switch, then to avoid drilling I would pick up some 3M heavy duty automotive mounting tape (at auto supply store) to mount that to your trailer frame. I use this same switch on my outdoor camper battery case.

  • How Does Exterior LED Utility Light # M337FR Wire
  • The wiring of the Exterior LED Utility Light # M337FR that you referenced is pretty basic. It has three wires, one for power, one for ground, and one for neutral. We have spoken with M-3 and they informed us that the light follows EU Wiring Specifications so the power should be brown, the neutral should be blue, and the ground should be green with a yellow stripe. The power source would need to be 110 AC power like what a house would have.

  • Wire Gauge To Use for LED Work Light - Flood Beam - 780 Lumens
  • I recommend using 14 gauge wire part # DW02408-1 to hook up the LED Work Light - Flood Beam part # UCL24CB to a power source up to 20' away. If you go any further you'd have to switch to 12 gauge. You can references these wire gauge charts easily online as well.

  • What Size Cut Out For Recessed Led Light
  • The bucket dimensions for Tow-Rax Recessed LED Light # TWSPRLB2L are 9 3/4" x 9 3/4" and is 5 1/2" deep, so you will need a hole at least that big. If the hole is slightly larger it will still work, so long as the flange on the end has something to grab on to. There is a tapered section where it angles down, you can see it in the attached a photo with the dimensions. I also linked a video of the light for your reference.

  • Recommended Under Body Work Light for Wheels/Tire on Dump/Utility Trailer
  • It sounds like you are looking for more of a work light rather than a traditional backup/reverse light. The backup/reverse light will project the beam straight out whereas a work light will project the beam to cover a larger area. I can't really make a specific recommendation for said light as none are really designed to be installed on a trailer pointed down at the wheels but I have attached for you a list of our entire work light selection which I feel would be better suited for your...

  • Troubleshooting Lights Not Working Properly
  • I spoke with someone from Buyers Products about your issue. They suggested that running the Ultra Bright LED Flood Light - 9,000 Lumens - Black Aluminum - Clear Lens - 12V/24V, part # 3371492196, to your battery will solve your problem. There is not enough consistent power to run these lights from your existing lights on your vehicle. If you wire directly to your battery you will not need to add resistors to this setup.

  • LED Flood Light Options with Amber Lens
  • While we do have some amber LED flood lights, the part # 3371492139 that you referenced is only made with a clear lens so it has white light. The amber LED flood lights that are available include parts # 3371492116 (4-5/8" round) and # 3371492111 (5" round). These are a different design than the one you were looking at, but they do match the type you're looking for. I've attached some review videos for you to check out.

  • Comparing LED Flood Lights To Use On Back Of Horse Trailer
  • The beam for the # TLL46FB is 10 ft wide at its widest point and the beam extends up to 130 ft. The optimal width is at about 65 ft. The beam is more narrow at around 5 feet wide at 30 ft. This may work well for you. I called my contact at Optronics about part # TLL60FB. They told me that they have not tested the light dispersion for this light as was done on the TLL46FB. The # TLL60FB has 6 diodes so the amount of light would be reduced by 1/3 versus the TLL46FB which has 9 diodes...

  • Recommended Backup Lights For Boat Trailer
  • The Optronics LED Trailer Utility Light - Submersible - 10 Diodes - Oval - Clear Lens # BUL28CLPB is a great option to add to the back of your boat trailer for additional light when backing up the trailer in the dark. Adding 4 lights total with 2 in the front and 2 in the rear sounds like a good plan as it will also give you additional light around the trailer. I would not cut any holes in the frame of the trailer, and would source hardware from your local hardware store and mount...

  • How Does LED Work Light # UCL24CFB Wire
  • The LED Work Light # UCL24CFB that you referenced wires in pretty easily. The red wire gets 12 volts positive and the black wire goes to a ground and it will light up. You'd want to use a switch like the part # D16740 so that you can switch it off and on as needed. Basically you'd need to wire the switch inline with either the power or ground wire and you'd be set.

  • Submersible Back Up Lamp For Launching Boat After Dark
  • According to Buyers Products, their # 3371492135 Low Profile LED floodlight is not submersible. If the lamp was submerged it would be damaged. We do however have an alternative. I'd recommend using part # BUL111CB, along with the # A70GB grommet and the # BK70BB bracket. You could mount this setup under the bumper of your Sequoia and since the lamp is fully submersible, you wouldn't need to worry about it being damaged should it go underwater.

  • How To Install the Low Profile LED Flood Light As A Reverse Light
  • In order to install the Low Profile LED Flood Light part # 3371492135 as a reverse light, the black wire will need to be attached to a ground and the red wire to the reverse light circuit (color will vary by application). The ground can be spliced into an existing ground wire on the trailer or you could make your own to bare metal. I can't really advise on wire colors for the trailer as it will again vary by application.

  • How To Choose The Correct Halogen Bulb For A 12V Ceiling Light System
  • Halogen bulbs come in 120 volts, 24 volts, and 12 volts so if you're placing it in a 12v light then you'll just want to make sure your 20 watt bulb is 12v. Higher voltage bulbs won't have enough power and will produce a dimmer light. There should be some indication on the packaging and/or bulb stating the voltage and wattage. I've attached a link to our 12v bulb selection for your convenience.

  • DOT Approved Trailer LED Reverse Light and an LED Interior Trailer Light
  • Optronics light # BUL78CB is a utility light so it is not DOT approved to be used as anything other than that. For the interior of the trailer it will work fine, it doesn't have to be DOT approved since it isn't a tail, marker, reverse, brake, or turn signal light. It is about as tough as any other trailer light that you would find but I would not expose it to repeated impact from cargo. the lens or flange would eventually crack. If you are looking for a DOT approved reverse light with...

  • Installation of Extra Reverse Lights on 2006 Ford F-250
  • The amp draw is 4.5 amps per light or 9 amps for 2 lights on the Optronics 55-Watt Halogen, Multi-Directional, Area Utility Light # QH16CTS. With that much amperage draw I would not recommend to connect them to your factory wiring harness. It could cause overloading problems and damage your vehicles wiring harness. If you want to install the 55-watt lights on your 2006 Ford F-250 you will need to use the Draw-Tite Wiring Kit # 118151. This kit will allow you to run a separate 12 gauge...

  • Is the Bulb Replaceable in Optronics Rectangular Tractor and Utility Light # TL46FS
  • I went out to the warehouse and pulled Optronics Rectangular Tractor and Utility Light # TL46FS to determine if the bulb is replaceable. Since it is an H3 bulb, it is attached to a base and it has a wire lead. The bulb itself is not replaceable but that whole assembly is. The best option is # CM93395 which is 2 bulbs (so you would have a spare). However, these bulbs are not tested with the Optronics housing. But they will fit and they are the right size.

  • Optronics 55-Watt Halogen Area Light QH16CTS Not Working with AC 110 Volt to 12 Volt DC Converter
  • This may seem obvious, but have you grounded the light? In the case of halogen light # QH16CTS the black wire is ground into the hardware and the red is the power wire. Sometimes AC to DC converters will not put out the correct voltage. Twelve volt systems are actually slightly higher than 12 volts, usually 12.8 volts. If your converter is not putting out the right voltage then that could be a problem too. You can check its output using a multimeter such as # PT89ZR. Also, and I...

  • Wiring in an LED Work Light and Switch to a Trailers Running Light Circuit
  • You could certainly use Opti-Brite LED work light # TLL48FB on your horse trailer and put it on a switch but having it wired into the running light circuit could have some unintended issues. Specifically, if you forgot to turn the switch off and drove away with the light still on you would blind driver's behind you! If the trailer has a battery I recommend wiring the light to it directly via a switch. But if you want to go ahead and wire it in line with the running lights then all you...

  • Can Reverse Light on Trailer Also be Powered with Switch In Truck
  • You can do this but you'd need to use a diode installed on the circuit so that the switched power won't backfeed onto the vehicle reverse lights. So what you can do is wire both the reverse light circuit and the switched power source to the input side of the # RM-790 and then the output side to the circuit and you'll accomplish what you are looking for.

  • Are Two Wires Required to Install the Clear Utility Light # 507-12 on a Trailer
  • No, there should only be one wire coming out of the Clear Utility Light, item # 507-12. There is another wire inside that light, see photo at right, that is attached to the mounting hardware for grounding the light. This requires that the light be mounted to a surface that is a good ground. If your mounting location does not provide a sufficient ground you can use a jumper wire to ground the mounting hardware to a good ground on the trailer or vehicle.

  • Would the Uni-Lite LED Mini Utility Light # UCL11CKB Work to Illuminate Running Boards
  • The Uni-Lite LED Mini Utility Light # UCL11CKB is pretty bright. We had a customer leave a review telling us how surprised he was on how bright they are for only having two diodes. I think they would work well for illuminating running boards on a truck. I do think that maybe two per board would work better than one. But that depends on the length of the board. I attached a review video for these lights that shows about how bright they would be.
