Video Transcript for Review of Curt Hitch Cargo Carrier - Hitch Bike Rack - C53201

Today, we're going to take a look at the Curt auxiliary led indicator lights. Now these auxiliary indicator lights will offer increased visibility and safety for your cargo carrier bike racks. They offer double row LEDs in each strip that'll cause correspond with the brake turn and running lights. The LED strips are right in less specific and they are stamped on their L for left R for right. It's very easy installation. They just stick on and plug into your four way flat connector on the back of each light strip.

There's a nice 3m adhesive backing. It gives you a secure, convenient mounting on a variety of surfaces. And each light is a durable, waterproof construction for lasting weather resistance. What I want to do is I'm going to give you some dimensions on these, and then we're going to hook them up to power just to show how they light up and how they operate.Basically the wiring harness, which is plugged into your four-way connects to your lights. Length on this is going to be 71 inches.

The light bar, each one length wise is going to be seven inches long. And the wiring is 22 inches of wiring on each light bar. Does include everything shown here. The two LED light strips with the 3m adhesive backing on the back and the wiring harness to plug it in. So what I'm going to do now is we're going to show you.

You'll take your yellow connector and you can see it has this threaded connector on it. And then you just line up, it's a three pin connector and it has a little raised area that you just line up and push them together, take your threaded part, and then just thread it all the way up until it secures it and that'll keep it connected.So it doesn't come apart. The blue one will do the same way, line it up, push it on and go ahead and thread on the connector all the way down until it tightens up. So now both of your lights are connected and then we'll take our four way and I got my four way here. So we'll go ahead and plug that in.And once we get that all plugged in, there we go.

I'll go ahead and turn on our 12 volt power. And you can see with our 12 volt power on. It can see that the top row of LEDs will light up and that would be for your running lights. Okay. And then I'm just going to go ahead and turn off the overhead lights. You can see how bright they are as the running lights. And then when we hit our brakes, you can see when you hit your brakes, you'll see that the bottom row of lights will light up. So you hit your brakes, the bottom row lights up. And then if you do your turn signal, just want to show you that you can do that way you'll do your left turn. I'm sorry, your right turn. That would be this one over here.And then if you do your left turn, Turn my power off. There you go. There would be your left turn signal. Very nice LED lights to give the brightness and turn back on our overhead lights and turn off our power. But that should do it for the review on the Curt auxiliary LED indicator lights..

In my opinion a clear 5 star ordering experience from beginning to end. High quality product arrived well-packed and exactly as described on company web site - which was easy to navigate. ordering was a breeze, shipping was fast and delivered even faster that I had anticipated. HIGHLY recommend this company and their products.


Comments
Very well. Much of the driving is at highway speeds 120 KPH the product stays affixed perfectly, works perfectly and I was actually complimented by a Highway Patrol Officer who said he could clearly see its operation. Still a 5 Star rating!
Michael - 06/23/2022


by:

This is a great add on because the bike rack blocks the turn signals.


Comments
I have had many complements on this product. It still is working great.
Rusty - 07/27/2022


by:

Very easy installation on my Thule bike carrier.
Excellent add-on for road safety.
Thanks for a great product.




by:

Great product simple mount and plug-in application! Bought it to use on my Saris bike rack, I mounted it to the rack using zip ties, it has stayed in place and it works really well. Gives me some additional peace of mind that others can see the rack and also know when I am stopping or turning.




by:

Love the lights. I installed them on my bike carrier because I was worried that the bikes would block my brake lights from the cars behind me. I just taped them to the rack in case I want to use them on a cargo rack. Very nice lights. I’m going to buy another pair.




by:

One part of LED's failed to work for one light not too long after using it. Otherwise, a decent product and doing what I need it to do as supplemental light. Will get another one and see if it lasts longer.


Comments
I will have our Customer Service team reach out to you. The lights do have a lifetime warranty.
-- Etrailer Expert Jenny N - 05/12/2022


by:

This is the second set of these that I have ordered. It worked so well on my first RV tow behind vehicle - I am going to install them on my new tow behind vehicle. The lights are very visible in the day light and especially at night. This is especially important to me as my RV's tail lights are mounted down low and are not visible from directly behind the tow vehicle when it is being towed. This time I will be mounting them using magnetic strips vise directly attaching them to the tow vehicle just because there is no good location to permanently mount them.




by:

The item has arrived promptly and in good condition. We have not yet installed it, because it will need to be stuck to the horizontal bars of our rack, where the wheel cradles attach. We want to be sure that we have settled on a bike placement where the wheel cradles won't need to use the space that the lights end up being attached to. Will update and downrate if we run into any issues.




by:

The LED light kit works just as advertised. We have a Thule T2 Classic 2-Bike Hitch Rack and the size of the light bars is perfect!




by:

The product works great and the process of buying it from etrailer was great also . It was processed and sent fast . Would recommend to anyone to buy here ,I will use etrailer again.




by:

I tested them and worked just fine. I have not used with the tray. The lights will be very helpful, I like thr quality of the product.




by:

LED Lights work exactly as described. Highly recommend. I used zip-ties to attach the wires to the trailer. etrailer made sure to delivery the product by our deadline before we departed on our trip.


Comments
Update, 12 months later, lights have continued to function. Product works as described.
Preston - 12/29/2021


by:

Outstanding customer service


Comments
Great product. I’m planning to order another set for a new bike rack I am building
Steven - 07/30/2022


by:

Good product but light assembly adhesive tape released on one side causing the light to break off after dragging on the road. This was during a winter ice storm so temperature or moisture ingress could be a factor of why the double sided tape released. too bad it did not have a screw mount to ensure it would stay affixed.




by:

Works perfect on our Thule bicycle carrier. We carry two bikes & they extend over the tail light. This is attached to the carrier perfectly. Great product!




by:

Easy to install. Seems to work well for our application. We have a hitch bike rack and cover our bikes while traveling. That blocks the indicators on our truck so auxiliary lights are needed for safety




by:

Received package 4 days ahead of time. Always good. Are smaller than I thought(shipping box fit in mail box!), but are exactly as described. Plenty bright, leads are long enough for a swing away bike rack.
I did have a challenge getting turn signals to work, but it was not the fault of the system, it was the fault of the previous van owner who did not have it wired correctly!




by:

Perfect for my application - hitch cargo carrier. etrailer representative was great! Connection / connector between the wire and lights seems a bit fragile - had to add electrical to on.




by:

Great addition to cargo carrier for safety purposes.




by:

The products that I ordered were built good and the delivery was only a few days




by:

The perfect addition to my hitch basket and the only one I saw that came with everything I needed including the 4 prong connector




by:

Fit perfectly and provides good rear brake and turn signals from my bike hitch. etrailer had great links to installation instructions.




by:

Nice, simple setup. It is quite small though. I don't understand why there have to be connections instead of just straight cable. Also, It seems the 4 pin plug may be the weak point in this. It's fine for occasional use, but really is too small and not very bright for safety.




by:

When I attached my bike rack loaded with two bikes to the truck you couldn’t see my brake lights or turn signals. These were just what I needed and were easy to install.




by:

order was delayed but no fault of etrailer they have a great service.

  • Does Using Curt Auxiliary LED Indicator Lights # C53201 Require Load Resistors
    This is a really good question since normally if you change vehicle taillights over to LED you have to use load resistors, but since the Curt Auxiliary LED Indicator Lights # C53201 that you referenced connect to the vehicle through trailer wiring the load resistors aren't needed.

  • Recommended Auxiliary LED Indicator Lights for Curt Cargo Carriers and Bike Racks
    It sounds like you're looking for the Curt Auxiliary LED Indicator Lights, which are available with part # C53201. These can be used on the back of Curt cargo carriers or bike racks. I've linked a review video of these, as well.
    view full answer...
  • Can the Curt Auxiliary LED Indicator Lights Be Used With a 7-Way
    The Curt Auxiliary LED Indicator Lights part # C53201 would indeed need to be hardwired into the trailer lighting circuits if using a 7-way trailer connector as there is no tee and adapter combo I am aware of for this. It should just be a power and ground wire. I suggest the running light circuit for power.

  • Recommended Magnetic Brake Lights For A 2016 Ram ProMaster 1500 With Bike Rack Blocking Tail Lights
    I recommend using the Curt Auxiliary LED Indicator Lights # C53201 since we do not have any magnetic lights with the magnetic on the back of the light. These auxiliary lights has a 3M backing to mount to the rear of your 2016 ProMaster 1500 and will plug right in to your 4-pole connector for power. The LEDs in each strip correspond with brake, turn, and running lights.

  • Recommended Lights For Blocked Tail Lights On A 2016 Winnebago Navion 24M Class C Motorhome
    The easiest option to solve your blocked tail light issue on is to use the Curt Auxiliary LED Indicator Lights # C53201. These lights have a 3M backing that will allow you to mount them to the bike carrier or anywhere on the back of your 2016 Winnebago Navion 24M Class C Motorhome. They are powered using a 4-pole connection so you won't have to worry about splicing in any wires.

  • Recommended Signal Lights For A Ford F-150 With Fiberglass Camper Shell
    Since magnetic lights won't work with your fiberglass camper shell I recommend the Curt Auxiliary LED Indicator Lights # C53201. These lights simply plug into your 4-way connector and have a 3M adhesive backing so that you can stick them on anything. I've attached a short video below that will show you these in use as well as how to install them.

  • Connecting Curt Auxiliary Light to Running Light Circuit of Vehicle
    Since the Curt Auxiliary LED Indicator Light part # C53201 uses a 4-way trailer connector you'd want to use the 4-way install kit part # 18252 to tap into the running light circuit of your vehicle. You'd ground the white wire and then use the quick splice that comes with it to connect the brown wire of the 4-way to the running light circuit power wire.

  • How Tall Is The Tow Ready Magnetic Tow Lights
    The Tow Ready Magnetic Tow Lights # 73864 is an acceptable solution if your tail lights are blocked as these lights provide stop, left/right turn signals, as well hazard functionality; additionally, these lights are approximately 12.9 inches tall. Additionally, you may want to try the Curt Auxiliary LED Indicator Lights # C53201 which are specifically designed for this.

  • Light Kit that Can Easily Attach to Bike Rack/Cargo Carrier
    We have a light kit that was specifically designed for situations like yours with the Curt Auxiliary Light Kit part # C53201 which will stick on either of your racks and connect to the 4-way part # C56040.

  • How To Install Trailer Lights On A BV Hitch-Mounted Bike Rack
    I have a perfect solution for you, but the Light Bar for Saris Freedom, Freedom EX, and SuperClamp EX Bike Racks # SA4426 is specifically designed for Saris bike racks and likely will not work with the BV bike rack that you have. I recommend looking into Curt Auxiliary LED Indicator Lights # C53201 as this will be your best option. This connects to your 4 way flat trailer connector and then provides 2 light bars for turn signal, brake, and running lights. 3M adhesive strips let you simply...

I have linked the instructions as well as an installation video below for you to reference.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver and 4-Way Flat Wiring Harness For 2018 VW Beetle
    I recommend the Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver # 24922 for your 2018 VW Beetle. It will fit both the coupe and convertible trims. The only exception is that it will not fit R-Line or models with AdBlue DEF tank. It has a maximum tongue weight capacity of 200lbs and trailer capacity of 2,000lbs. Be sure to consult your VW dealer for the maximum capacities for your specific vehicle and use the lower of the 2 sets of numbers. Currently we do not have a video of the receiver...

    The Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 76199 may affect the operation of the hands free rear hatch on your 2020 Alfa Romeo Stelvio. We have yet to get any reviews that confirm it will still operate but at the same time no one has said that it will not. With these type of situations it is often seen that the sensor will still operate correctly but it may only work to one side or the other and requires the motion to be very close the the receiver.

This has been confirmed by Draw-Tite to fit. When we installed this on a 2020 Trax as seen in the video linked below it had a bumper to hitch pin center length of 5-1/2" and 11-1/2" to the top of the receiver. These measurements are important for selecting the correct ball mount or hitch mounted accessory for carrying additional cargo....

  • Solution For Installing Trailer Lights On Hollywood Racks Bike Rack Without Drilling
    There is not a custom-fit light bar for your Hollywood Racks Sport Rider bike rack, however, the Curt Auxiliary LED Indicator Lights # C53201 would be your best option. This would not require you to drill into your bike rack or fabricate it in any way. The light bars simply attach to the bottom of your bike rack via adhesive backing and then you can plug the harness into your 4 way trailer light outlet at the back of your vehicle. If you have a 7 way then you will want to use an adapter...

  • Trailer Hitch Receiver and 4-Way Wiring Harness Recommendation For a 2022 Mazda CX-5
    I recommend the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 76138 for your 2022 Mazda CX-5. This receiver has a hidden cross tube that looks better than other receivers with an exposed cross tube below the rear bumper fascia. The 2" receiver also allows for a wider variety of ball mounts and hitch mounted accessories to work without any kind of adapter. The Tekonsha T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness # 118746 will give you a 4-way flat connector. This connector will fit most small trailers...

    The ModuLite on the T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness # 118467 for your 2014 Subaru Forester serves 2 purposes. First it lessens draw put on the wiring by drawing power from the battery to power the lights on the trailer or Auxilary Lights # C53201. Secondly it coverts the tail light wiring from a 3-wire system(Left Signal, Right Signal and Brake) to a 2-wire system, since the trailer tail lights carry power for the turn signals and brake lights on the same yellow and green wires.

  • Weight of Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # 13266 For a 2016 Volvo V60
    The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # 13266 for your 2016 Volvo V60 weighs 34lbs. We ship it in our 45" long, 23" tall and 8" deep packaging. I recommend installing a T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness # 118647 when you install the receiver. This will allow you to connect to small trailers that use a 4-way flat connector. It can also be used with Auxiliary Lights # C53201 if you have a hitch mounted accessory that impairs the view of your tail lights on your Volvo.

  • Concealed Trailer Hitch Receiver and Wiring Harness for a 2010 Toyota Camry
    It is possible for the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver # 36416 on your 2010 Toyota Camry to have some flex in the trunk floor pan under the spare tire. This is due to the floor pan being thin sheet metal. To remedy this you could replace the small spacers that are used with some larger plates of steel that will disperse the weight over a larger area and make it harder for the floor pan to flex. I do recommend installing the T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness # 118482 when installing the receiver....

Be sure to check with your owners manual on what you vehicle maximums are and use the lesser of the 2 figures.
