Video Transcript for Optronics Enclosed Cargo Trailer License Plate Holder Review

Hey, everybody, Ryan here at etrailer. Today we're gonna be checking out the Optronics license plate holder for enclosed trailers. So with these enclosed trailers, you know, a lot of times they really take a beating, you know, people use 'em for work, they get stored outside, the doors are always getting opened and closed, and what can happen is, you know, the plate frame can kind of just fall apart, you know. It starts to get brittle, it'll crack and everything else, and keeping your license plate attached to your trailer is really important, that way, you know, you'll remain legal and, you know, everything will be good to go there. So this setup is gonna work as a great replacement, and that was our case today, even an upgrade, you know, if you have one that's kind of flimsy and gives you issues and your plate gets all beat up because of it, or even as a brand new one, you know, if your door got damaged and you ended up replacing the door or sectioning the door, you don't want to put an old, raggedy license plate holder back on it, so you can just pick up a new one and add it where you need it. I know what I'd be thinking whenever I put one of these on my enclosed trailer and it would be, you know, how long is it gonna hold up Is it gonna last for a while I don't wanna have to change this thing every time I change my plate.

And honestly, after kind of checking it out, I'd see really no issues getting quite a bit of use out of it. Five, maybe 10 years, something like that, if I had to guess, unless something catastrophic happened, you got rear-ended or something like that. It feels good, it's well built, it's super thick plastic. It has a couple radiuses there and so, you know, when it bends like that that does add strength to the frame. And I mean, even just getting scuffed and everything.

I mean I'm hitting this pretty hard, with a hard screwdriver handle and it's not even leaving a scuff or a nick in it, so, pretty impressive actually. So I really think it could take a beating and hold up to it. One of the purposes of using a plate holder like this is to help keep your trailer in a little bit better shape, 'cause I know I thought, well, why don't you just screw the license plate right to the back of the door The problem with that is a lot of times when you have metal on metal it can cause corrosion issues and, you know, really start to mess your paint up and really kind of start to pit the metal 'cause a lot of times, you know, you'll have an aluminum door, the plate will be made from steel and when you mate them together you get water going on back there, you get a lot of corrosion and it kind of just tears everything up. So by having a holder like this, you know, you're gonna have that thick layer of plastic in between those two pieces of metal, and you're not gonna have to worry about that issue. We'll go ahead and just grab a couple measurements here, that way if you need 'em, you have 'em, if you need to figure out if it'll work with your particular setup.

So the overall length of it, from side to side, is gonna be 14-1/4 of an inch. As far as how wide it is, so from there to there, it's gonna be 8-5/16 of an inch. And the depth, so how thick it is, that's going to be 13/16 of an inch. So at the end of the day, kind of a great, you know, all around, almost universal license plate holder, you know, it's ideal for these enclosed trailers but that doesn't mean that you can't use it for a different type of trailer or maybe even a cargo carrier, you know, for the most part universal, so you can use it however you see fit. Now, as far as getting this installed, really straightforward, there's gonna be a few screws that we need to put in to actually secure the holder and then of course your couple of screws for your license plate.

So, really shouldn't give you a whole lot of issues. Speaking of which, let's go ahead and put it on together now. To get our license plate holder installed it's gonna be super simple and pretty much the same regardless on what type of enclosed trailer that you have. Now, there's gonna be a couple scenarios where you're replacing an existing one, like we are today, whether it be damaged, you know, faded, cracked, whatever the case may be, or you might be adding it. But that said, you know, process is gonna be extremely similar. If you are gonna be replacing one you are going to obviously need to remove it. In our case our screws came right out but it seems like some people struggle with having hardware that's really rusty, or stripped out or something like that, and if that's your case, never a bad idea to soak 'em down, maybe with some penetrating oil, let 'em sit, maybe work overnight, couple hours or something like that. Or what you can do as well, so say for example, if the bit was stripped out, or the inside of the fastener, what you can do, a lot of times these aren't in here super tight, a lot of times what you can do is grab a pair of vice grips and actually clamp the head of that bolt and, you know, work it out that way. So that gives you a nice, good grip on it. So just kind of a pointer, something I wanted to mention, it seems like some people kind of struggle with. With that said, we can take our holder, and in our case, super simple, the pre-drilled holes in it are already gonna line up with the holes in our enclosed trailer. If you're going to be adding this and not replacing it, what you do is find the spot, you know, that you want to put it, hold it in place, and then you'd take a marker, or a pencil and use those pre-drilled holes as templates to mark out where you need to pre-drill and run your fasteners in. If you are gonna be replacing it, be an ideal time just to get new hardware and use that, that way everything's cleaned up. You can find these self-tappers here at etrailer, that's exactly what I'm gonna do. So I'm gonna kinda get that started and then use the bolt to kinda line itself up, that way we know everything will fit in the original position. I kind of hold that in place there. And run that down. I'll just do the same thing for our three remaining attachment points. All that's left to do is just take your license plate and put it on. That's pretty nice actually, they do give you some screws with the holder here, so these will be fresh as well. I'll get both of them started, and just tighten them down. That'll finish up our look at and our installation of the Optronics license plate holder..

Used it to move my license plate on my pick up to my headache rack, works perfect. LED light was all I added.



by:

Great product and the installation was easy. Thank.



by:

Bought this to add to my Let's Go Area FP-4 Gearcage which I also bought from etrailer. Along with license plate light LPL55CB, I modified the two into one and added to the Gearcage --- worked out great! And, of course, the customer service and etrailer website are unparalleled - just great.

It’s the best licence plate holder so far it was easy to install and looks great on my foodtrailer

Excellent website. Video of products was extremely helpful!

Lots easier than getting fron trailer manu.

My Jayco Precept motorhome did not come with any provisions for a front license plate. The LP35BB has been an excellent solution which I have recommended to other Precept owners on the Jayco owners’ forum.

Still an excellent solution in every respect.



by:

I did a little engineering on it, but it did a great job for what I needed.



by:

Very nice replacement for when you break off the cheap plastic tabs that hold the license plate under the brake light on your travel trailer. RVs should come standard with a plate holder like this. I stuck it on with 3M automotive molding tape (similar to 3M VHB tape).



by:

License Plate Holder is exact replacement for my damaged one. My trailer has drop-down ramp rear door, with no wiring. Illumination is from the side, not directly to the plate holder. Therefore I wanted a plate holder without built-in illumination. This one is exactly what I wanted. Quality is excellent. The price was right. Shipping was extremely fast. I'm completely satisfied with the transaction. I will use E-Trailer again, and highly recommend.



by:

Matched the one my trailer came with. Super fast shipping. Recommended for trailer parts

1 year, just like new. Thanks again



by:

Bought this plate frame along with other items from etrailer to upgrade a sled trailer. Had shipped to a border state and picked up coming from Canada - still saved with exchange ( at least a year ago). Happy to have found their site and will check first in the future for more upgrades or accessories. They have their online sales down pat. A year later asking for a comment... Thumbs up.



by:

I have installed this licence plate holder on our Little Guy teardrop trailer. It is like plate holder on the new teardrops, except for the led light. etrailer should have the option for either with or without the led light. Thank you!



by:

Well designed plastic license plate holder purchased for my trailer. High sides protect the edge of the plate and allow for installation of a clear plastic faceplate. Came with two screws in reinforced area to assure retention. I believe this holder will protect my plate from damage for a long time. Seems like a great product for the purpose.



by:

Hurricane Irma put a tree limb in my yard and it hit my utility trailer breaking my tag mount off . This replacement went right on and the screw holes lined right up.



by:

Wow! eTrailer's shipping folks get an A+. This was probably the most well-packaged item I have ever had shipped to me. Most places put your item in a flimsy box (or envelope) with little padding, which leads to damaged items, returns, etc. Not eTrailer. Sturdy box with more than enough padding. I was really impressed. Plus the item I ordered was exactly what I needed. Good price too! I HIGHLY recommend eTrailer.com



by:

Great replacement for the stock unit. Little bit smaller than the stock one. Stock unit had a LED light strip on it. The replacement has a long opening in the top and locating pins on the back for the factory strip light. I simply cut the caulk holding the light to the factory unit, and transfered the light to the new unit. Looks great for 1/3 price of factory replacement unit.



by:

The plastic holder has worked great protecting the license plate on my landscape trailer from being bent and damaged!



by:

I wanted one exactly like the original one that came with my new cargo trailer so that I could display my decorative veteran license plate on the opposite side. I am very happy that I found it at etrailer.com



by:

Wow! This is a very solid license plate holder and the price is right! You will not be disappointed with buying this one versus any of the others seen on the Internet. Shipping is VERY reasonable too!



by:

Just what I was looking for. Heavy duty plastic, good license plate holder. Light bracket broke on my 5 wheel and this holder will work alot better.



by:

Everything is fine after 1 year. The license plate holder is doing its job well. No issues.



by:

We were surprised when our new trailer did not come with this. Just some bolt holes on the door. One quick look here and a speedy delivery got our trailer looking right. Holes lined up and the plate fits perfect.



by:

Great service

  • License Plate Light for Enclosed Cargo Trailer License Plate Holder
    The opening at the top of license plate bracket # LP35BB is fairly small and not necessarily designed for a light. The light you put in there would have to be very small. I recommend just attaching a basic light like # LP81BB to the top of the bracket. I have included a link to a video review for you.

  • License Plate Mounting Screw Size for Enclosed Cargo Trailer License Plate Holder
    The screws for mounting the license plate that come with the Enclosed Cargo Trailer License Plate Holder # LP35BB are 1/4" screws with a coarse (20 threads per inch) thread style. Attached is a review video for you to check out.

  • What Type of Mounting Screws Should be Used to Install Enclosed Cargo Trailer License Plate Holder
    The 4 mounting holes for Enclosed Cargo Trailer License Plate Holder # LP35BB are very small so something like an 1/8 inch self-tapping screw should be what you need. If you already have some screws that are larger there is no harm in using the holes in the plate holder as pilot holes but I would not go over 1/4 inch. Since you are installing the holder onto aluminum I do recommend a self-tapping machine screw or something similar. Otherwise there really is no specific hardware you have...

  • Replacement License Plate Holder for Pace Trailer
    The largest license plate bracket we offer is the Optronics Enclosed Cargo Trailer License Plate Holder, part # LP35BB. This bracket measures 14-1/4 wide x 8-5/16 inches tall. This is mounted with 4 screws(sold separately) and 2 screws are needed to mount the license plate.

  • Type of Hardware for Installing Optronics License Plate Holder LP35BB
    The correct hardware to mount the Optronics License Plate Holder # LP35BB mostly depends on the type and thickness of the surface you want to mount it on. This plate holder has 4 pre-drilled holes for mounting and these are hidden by the plate once it is installed. For most installations a 1/2-inch long # 6 stainless steel screw like # 1172904 is fine. Stainless steel is preferred to avoid the risk of corrosion.

What I can offer is a replacement wraparound light like the Wraparound LED Tail Light for Trailers Over 80" - 8 Function - Submersible - Red # 271595 for the driver side and the # 271594 for the passenger side.

  • Replacing a Rusted License Plate Bracket with a Plastic License Plate Holder on a Cargo Trailer
    You can certainly replace the license plate bracket on your cargo trailer. I am guessing the license plate mounting screws are the part that is rusted. To remove them, you may want to use a drill to remove the screws or just break the heads off of the license plate screws to remove the license plate. Since you will be replacing the license plate bracket, you will not need to reuse the rusted screws or bracket. Once the screws and bracket are removed, you can install the Optronics Cargo...

    On the Tow Ready Hitch Cargo Carrier, # 63153, the license plate can be mounted to the back of the cargo carrier by drilling two holes of 1/4 inch or less and attaching the plate with two screws. I also have a Optronics License Plate Holder, # LP35BB, that you could use. It mounts by one screw in the center and then the license plate attaches to the holder.

  • Availability of Magnetic Lights For Use with Hitch-Mounted Cargo Carrier
    You ask a good question. Any vehicle accessory, such as a hitch-mounted cargo carrier like # e98874, when installed and in use must not block the vehicle's various stop/turn/tail lights. In actual practice it is usually not the carrier itself that blocks the lights but the cargo that is loaded on it. A couple of large cartons loaded into this tray-style carrier could, on some vehicles, partially block the view of your lights for a motorist behind you. State laws and the degree of actual...

  • Spring Loaded License Plate Frame For Open Snowmobile Trailer Use
    The only option I can think of is to custom mount your plate with a hinge. You could use a plate holder like # LP35BB or a metal plate like # CR79150 and mount it to the bottom of your trailer with a basic hinge like # PLR2008-AS. If you mount the hinge the correct way, it would allow swinging front to back without any friction and gravity would allow the plate to hang properly for travel.

    I don't have any information specific to any one particular trailer but what I can tell you is that most license plates are mounted under the driver side tail light. In fact, most driver side tail lights even have a bracket for the license plate as well as a light that points down from the tail light to illuminate the license plate. The Low Profile LED RV Tail Light part # RVSTLB61 for example has the license plate mount and light as mentioned above and can then be paired with the Low Profile...

    The Trailer License Plate Holder with LED Light # 328-003-71BE uses non-submersible lights. Although this would not work well on your boat trailer, I have a different solution. I recommend using the LED Trailer License Plate Light # LPL82CBB. This light is submersible and will be comparable to the light from the license plate holder. You can mount this light over your license plate attached to your trailer as it is right now. If you still need a license plate holder, we have the Enclosed...

    The CURT Cargo Carrier, # C18152, has been out for awhile now so it is not new to the market. The license plate can be mounted at a location of your choosing on the back of the carrier using License Plate Holder, # LP35BB. You can also drill two holes of 1/4 inch or less diameter and attach the plate with two screws. A light kit is not available for the CURT model. Personally I would go with the Pro Series Cargo Carrier, # 63153, since it is such a popular item. It can easily be fitted...

    Yes, the Carpod Walled, Folding Cargo Carrier # M2205-01-02 will fit your 2013 Ford Escape providing your trailer hitch has a 2 inch receiver. Personally, I would pick this one in a heartbeat if I still had kids at home and had to carry sporting equipment, backpacks or other odd shaped cargo. I also like the 5 inch shank rise, you can never have too much ground clearance. With that being said, the measurement from the center of the pin hole to where the shank begins to rise is 2-1/2 inches....

  • License Plate Light Recommendation for 1994 Wells Cargo Enclosed Trailer
    If you're just needing a license plate light then the Optronics LED Mini Light # OPT77FR is a great option. If you're needing a whole license plate bracket AND light then I recommend checking out the Command Electronics License Plate Holder and LED Light # 328-003-71BE instead. I also recommend picking up Heat Shrink Butt Connectors # DW05744-5 to protect your wiring connections. Attached are some videos for you to check out.

    If you wanted to mount your license plate to the Curt Cargo Carrier part # C18113 you could but we don't have a specific way to do so. You could attach something like the part # LP35BB to it if you'd be willing to modify the carrier. Now that said we've found that when license plates are obscured by cargo carriers like this police officers generally are not bothered enough to pull people over and give them a hard time. Using a rise adapter to try and gain more ground clearance isn't...
