Video Transcript for etrailer Hitch Mounted Cargo Carrier Tail Light Mounting Brackets Review

We're looking at this bracket for your cargo carriers. And it's gonna allow you to put some taillights on your cargo carrier. Typically, when we start stacking stuff pretty high it starts to block our taillights. So with this bracket, it's gonna solve that problem. The bracket has a nice clean look to it. It matches the finish of the etrailer cargo carrier.

It's gonna be made of steel and it's gonna fit around the top tube. And then bolt through the bottom little grate. Everything comes with the kit, which is nice. And it's definitely so much better than the other options I have. I don't like this, cuz it looks bad, it's incandescent and I'm just looking for a clean look.

And with this, I'm adding even more length onto the carrier. So that's something I try to avoid especially with accessories. So the bracket gives you a nice clean look and it looks like it's supposed to be there. We have a couple different options when it comes to lights. Here are a few.

One, we have an LED one here. It's more flush cuz it doesn't have a curve to it. And the incandescent version has a little curve to it as well, but they are all gonna fit and there are more options on our website. Pretty much what makes it fit is the shape and this little rubber grommet. Give you an idea how big this bracket is, it's about eight inches long.

And then from the very top to the very bottom is about five and a half inches. Our tubing's gonna be seven eights by seven eights. So that's what this fits around. And then on the bottom it sticks in quite a bit. So it goes all the way to the little grates right here so we can get our bolts through. And from the edge of our bracket to the other edge right here, it's about two inches. There's not a whole lot to this product. It's a very simple product that doesn't take a whole lot of time to install just to solve your problem. And I think that's a win-win. So if you're interested, you can stick around. We're gonna show you how we installed it. To get the bracket installed, I wanna install it on the farthest most point right here. So what we gotta do just put it like this, drop it down and sits into place. I like to even it out. So give a tape measure, just eye it out. We're gonna have some hardware with the kit. We're gonna go with the bolt with a washer on it and we're gonna put it down trough this hole just like that. On the other side, we're gonna take another washer and now we're gonna lock that and I'm gonna get these just hand tight for now and install the other two. Now we're gonna center it up and then take a half inch wrench and socket to tighten it up all the way. Once that side's done it's gonna be the same exact process on the other side. Now that the brackets are nice and mounted up we're ready for some lights. It's just a simple product that just solves a lot of problems for a lot of people. So I think it's gonna be very useful for you. If you have a cargo carrier like this one go ahead and grab the bracket and the light kit. And if you're picking between the two lights that are gonna work with the bracket I would go with the LEDs just because it's LEDs. And that's pretty much it for our look at the etrailer light bracket for your cargo carrier. And I'm Adam with etrailer..

Purchased these in addition to led lights for my etrailer cargo carrier. Fast installation, led lights fit securely. In a review I read someone mentioned them as being loose. Initially mine also seemed loose, on closer examination I discovered that the the problem was that I failed to properly seat the rubber grommets supplied. After correcting my mid take it takes a lot of effort to remove lights. Absolutely no way for them to become dislodged from road vibration. I turn to etrailer for all towing and illumination needs.



by:

Easy to use and install! Highly recommend to make the lights look more finished compared to zip tying lights to the trailer.

  • Recommended Cargo Hitch Carrier for a 2014 Ford Escape
    I have two different recommendations for a hitch cargo carrier that should sit above the exhaust on your 2014 Ford Escape. I recommnd the etrailer Carrier, part # e98874. This is a 500 lbs carrier that is folding and has a 2 inch rise. This carrier has a 19-1/2 inch distance from the hitch pin hole to the closest edge of the carrier when in use, so this might help with your exhaust issue. It also has a tilting option when loaded. Since none of our cargo carriers come with lights pre-installed,...

  • Is My Cargo Carrier Legal or Illegal?
    From my research, I discovered that most states require brake lights on any accessory if the accessory blocks the view of the vehicle's taillights. As far as the legality of the length of the carrier extending from the rear of your RV, I recommend checking with your state's highway patrol documents. If you need brake lights for your cargo carrier, I recommend the etrailer License Plate and LED Tail Light Mounting Kit for Hitch Mounted Cargo Carrier # e98943-44LED. The kit also comes with...

  • When Folded, Will Cargo Carrier 52018F Fit on a 2009 GMC Acadia Without Touching the Vehicle
    You will have to do a little measuring on your 2009 GMC Acadia to determine if the 24x60 Folding Cargo Carrier, # 52018F, will fit, when folded, without rubbing against the vehicle. Measure from the center of the hitch pin hole (on the hitch on the vehicle) to the furthest point at the rear of the vehicle where the carrier might hit. If that distance is greater than 5 inches, it will not work. The carrier with the most clearance is the 20x48 Folding Cargo Carrier, # 6502, with 7-1/2 inches...

  • Recommended Talllight Kit for etralier e98873 Hitch Mounted Motorcycle Carrier
    Adding a light kit to the etrailer # e98873 motorcycle carrier is a great idea to provide better visibility for the carrier. I'd recommend using # 20174 for incandescent bulbs or # 98174LED for LED lamps. You'll also need a set of # e98943 mounting brackets. The LED's are more expensive, but they'll be much brighter and draw just a fraction of the electricity that the incandescent bulbs do.

  • Will a 24 By 48 inch Box Fit in the 24x60 Cargo Carrier For 2 inch Trailer Hitches
    Your box should fit as long as it is no wider than 24 inches, which is the inside width of this carrier. The distance from the start of the corner on these carriers is 61-1/2 inches so there will be plenty of length along the front and back for your 48 inch long box to fit inside. The total inside width is 60 inches. Weight capacity is 500 pounds. Please check the tongue weight of your vehicle. You must go with the lowest limit.

  • Folding Cargo Carrier for 2010 Chevy Traverse
    Unfortunately, Rola doesn't make a folding version of the # 59502 and an adapter is not an option for it. The etrailer Folding Cargo Carrier, part # e98874 will fit your vehicle if the hitch pin hole to rear of bumper measurement is less than 9-1\2 inches. The # e98943-44LED light kit can be added to that carrier, and I think you would be happy with their oval appearance. I've linked you to some product demonstration videos that you might find helpful.
