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

Randy: Hey, guys. It's Randy here at etrailer.com. We get questions all the time for customers that want to put lights on the rear of their cargo carrier, if they've got a situation like this where it's kind of stacked up and blocking their tail lights from people behind them or they just want that additional notification back there for other drivers as they approach to let them know that they've got an additional item behind their vehicle. What we've came up with is a very simple bolt-on style attachment point. Now this is going to give us the ability to use the industry standard six-inch oval lights. I really like this light, and I like this design.

It's going to take care of running lights, turn signals and brakes for us. So regardless of which way we intend on heading, everybody behind this is going to know which direction we're going.Now, once that's installed, we have pre-assembled light kits available to have the harness and everything for you to just place your lights in. These are the LED type kit, but we also have incandescent lights, so those tend to be a little bit more cost effective, and the harness that you can simply run up and plugin to your four-pole. So really easy to do a couple zip ties. There's no cutting or splicing of wires that you need to do.

And if your tail lights are blocked with your item, your license plate probably is going to be as well. Now, we sell the license plate attachment kit separately, but you can also get them as a kit. So you can get both of them at the same time. Everything will be delivered to you so you can get it installed.Now, the license plate kit and the light kit are going to be designed to work with cargo carriers that have the 3/4" x 3/4" square bar. That's going to be the one we've got here today.

It's our etrailer folding cargo carrier. But a couple of the other ones that'll fit will be the very popular Curt C18153 or C18181, which are very readily available, very popular cargo carriers out there. So regardless of what type you get, as long as it's got that 3/4 x 3/4 bar, it should be a really good fit for you.To installed the kit, we're going to take the narrower side there. We're going to just slide that right over the top of our carrier. Then you're able to slide and position that wherever you'd want.

I'd keep it closer to the outside, just makes more sense that way. We're going to take one of our bolts with our flat washer on it. Just going to slide that through. Find a good spot where it'll fit through there, right there looks good. We'll thread on a nylon lock nut and do the same thing for the other side. Then we'll just grab a couple of 13-millimeter wrenches or sockets, whatever you've got, and get it snugged down. It's a really simple, easy bracket to install. So we get it snugged down on both our bolts there and that's all there really is to it. Once we have this done, we'll just go to the other side and repeat that same process.Now you're ready to install one of the light kits. We've got either LED type or incandescent type, so you can kind of pick your pleasure there. Both kits are going to have the grommets we need to go in. See how they're just going to fit right inside of there. And then our lights pop right in from there. That's really all there is to getting the light in place. Use the provided wiring harness and just run it along the bottom of the carrier. And we'll just take this, plug it into our standard four-pole, and now, regardless of how high we stack items up on that cargo carrier, we're going to have lights.All right. Now to test it out, we'll just start by turning on our lights there. Check out our left blinker, our right blinker, and our brakes. All right. Perfect. In my opinion, guys, if you've got one of the cargo carriers with the 3/4 x 3/4 here, this is going to be an excellent solution for you. It takes care of all the problems, all the issues that we run into with blocking those lights or blocking our license plate there on the back.

  • 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.
