Review of Optronics Trailer Lights MC57AB


Today we're going to be taking a look at part number MC57AB. This is the Optronics Sealed, 2-1/2" Round Trailer Clearance and Side Marker Light with a Built in Reflector. It's a 1 incandescent bulb design. It is PC rated, that means it can function as both a clearance and side marker light when mounted at a 45 degree angle. It's going to have the reflectorized lens. It's Department of Transportation complaint so that's going to eliminate the need for a separate reflector. It's also going to have this sealed, waterproof housing in the lens unit.

That's a great design to have. A heavy-duty long life incandescent bulb. This does require a mounting grommet that's going to be sold separately. That's available with part number A55GB. The mounting grommet is going to require a 3" diameter hole in order to get it mounted. Here on the back side it's got a 2-prong connection so it's going to accept the industry standard 2-prong plug.

That's going to be sold separately, and the mounting grommet is sold separately as well. The overall diameter of the light is going to give us a measurement of 2-1/2" and the depth is going to give us a measurement of about 11/16". We're going to go ahead and connect this to our external power supply that way you can see what it looks like it with power running to it. I have an industry standard 2-prong plug here, just to show you how easy it is to connect it. Simply line up the connection points and push it in. It snaps in there to create a nice weather tight connection.

This is what the light's going to look like when connected to power. Again it's going to have a 1 bulb design and that is an incandescent bulb. It's got the reflectorized lens. It allows a lot of light output to come through; it distributes it pretty evenly and it's going to provide a nice, consistent light for you. This is going to function as both a clearance and side marker light when mounted at a 45 degree angle. That's going to do it for today's review of part number MC57AB. This is the Sealed, 2-1/2" Round Trailer Light from Optronics.
