Peterson Trailer Lights - License Plate Lights - PM436 Review

Today we're taking a look at a Peterson license plate light. Now this unit mounts to your trailer and illuminates the license plate. It contains one incandescent bulb, bulb number is 168, and that is replaceable if and when needed. The base, which is this black portion here, this is made from a durable steel construction and it has a nice powder-coated finish on it to help resist rust and corrosion, housing, which is the gray portion, that's plastic. It's a single wire design so that your power wire and then it grounds through the mounting hardware. Mounting hardware not included.

It is department of transportation compliant. We're going to go over a few measurements real quick and then we'll hook up the power that way you can see what it looks like with some power running to it. The mount holes on the unit are separated apart from one another on center by three and a half inches. Edge to edge, the base measures 4 inches by about 1 and 5/8 inches.And then from the very back of the unit to the very front of the unit gives us an overall depth of about 2 and 1/4 inches. All right, we're going to go and hook it up the power.

We'll also turn off our overhead light so you can see it in a low-light setting. So here you can see the light sends out a nice consistent signal. Again, we have light that shines at a downward angle, which will illuminate a license plate mounted directly below this light. And it contains a total of one bulb, and again that is an incandescent bulb that is replaceable. One more time, bulb number is 168.

That's going to do it for today's look at the Peterson license plate light.
