Optronics STL178RB GloLight Trailer Tail Light - Stop, Tail, Turn, Oval - Clear Lens Dimensional Diagram

Innovative GloLight Design

Optronics Glow lights lit around the edge

This red LED light serves as a trailer tail light with stop, turn, and tail functions. The light gives your truck or trailer a distinctive look that's completely street legal. This Optronics GloLight has a unique solid light pattern when lit, so your lights stand out from the rest. Optronics GloLights are a great way to add both style and value to your truck or trailer.


Sonically Sealed, Waterproof Trailer Light

The waterproof construction of this light makes it ideal for use on trailers that may be submerged, like a boat trailer. The housing and lens are sonically sealed together to create a single unit, which means that water will not get into the light and damage the diodes or circuit board.


LEDs vs. Incandescent Lights

The long-lasting, cool-burning LEDs make this light the perfect replacement for incandescent trailer lighting. LED lights are more efficient, use less power, and last much longer than incandescent lights.


Surface-Mount Light

Surface mount light

Surface-mount lights install flat against the surface of the trailer, so a hole does not need to be cut into the trailer for the light. This type of light is installed using a flange or bracket that has mounting holes. And mounting hardware is used to secure the light to the trailer.

Video Transcript for Optronics Trailer Lights - Tail Lights - STL178RK1B Review

Speaker 1: Today we're taking a look at the Optronics GloLight LED trailer tail light. This oval trailer tail light serves three functions for your trailer, turn signal, brake light and tail light. Now, the GloLight lens creates a solid light pattern with a smooth appearance. So the outer band of LEDs functions as the tail light and then the center area of LEDs act as the turn signal, and brake light.It features a sonically sealed design, so it's a water proof unit. It is submersible. It features durable surface mount technology when it comes to the construction of the LED circuit board.

That design is better to withstand shock, and vibration and allows for improved heat distribution, and an over all thinner construction.Now, LEDs make great replacements for incandescent lights. They last longer, they burn brighter, they're more efficient. With LEDs you don't have to worry about replacing bulbs, and you don't have to worry about brittle filaments. The unit features a really nice polycarbonate housing and acrylic lens, very strong, and durable. Three wire design so the white wire's the ground wire, black wire's the power wire for tail lights, red wire's the positive power wire for your stop, and turn signals.

It is DOT compliant. That Department of Transportation, so it meets FMVSS108 and CMVSS requirements for automotive lighting.We're going to take a look at the dimensions real quick, and then we'll hook it up power so you can see what it looks like. It is a surface mount installation, mounting hardware not included, and it does come with a foam gasket, they're on the backside. Edge to edge going this direction, outer edge to outer edge is 7 and a half inches. Edge to edge right here is three, and five 16th.

The over all thickness is, about how far it sticks out from the installation surface, is seven eighths of an inch. I also took measurements of the mount holes, so side to side these holes are separated on center by two, and 11 16th inches. These holes are separated on center by six, and 15 16ths inches.We're going to go ahead and hook it up to power, that way you can see what it looks like with some power running to it. We'll also turn off our over head light, so you can see it in a lower light setting. So, white is ground, black is positive power for our tail lights, red is positive power for our stop, and turn.

So, you can see here it sends out a really nice clear consistent signal. The multi diode design really helps optimize the over all light output. It contains a totally of 22 LEDs or 22 diodes. This is the tail light function, but when we operate our brakes you can see how that signal output increases and it will do that same thing when we activate our turn signals.The power draw at 12.8 volts for the tail light is 0.295 amps, and for the stop, and turn light it's 0.59 amps. Optronics also puts a lifetime warranty on the LEDs. That's going to do it for today's look at the Optronics GloLight, LED trailer tail light.

Hello, I just opened up my order and I would like to return the lights - they are all scuffed up and scratched from the poor packaging job. The rear gasket also has a tear and they look like these units were once returned for the same reason. Please send an RMA or instructions to return the units. This is really disappointing - please advise on your website if your selling new lights or used, I paid for new lights.


Comments
It is understandable to be unhappy with the condition of the lights. The lights that we ship are new and I will send this information to our shipping department. Our customer service team will reach out to assist you.

The Optronics surface mount light (STL178RK1B) was easy to install and the 22 LED diodes provide exceptional light.
The light fits snug on the trailer bracket and the foam gasket provides extra protection.




by:

These work great and the Glo-light looks very nice. I installed these on my tow dolly as the original LED's went bad from shorted wiring. These fit great and are excellent quality and the E-trailer team is excellent to deal with. Never an issues!

These Oval lights work perfectly. Easy to install.
The Oval style mounts directly to the trailer and thus vibration dies not affect them.
You will have to add side marker lights as well as a separate license light.




by:

Inexpensive and functional.




by:

Put this on my boat trailer to replace the original LED lights that had leaked water inside and were failing. The lights look different and are somewhat brighter. They flush mount in a gasket. The gaskets that came with the lights didn't fit well, they were too loose, but the lights fit in the original gaskets just fine.




by:

I have used many Optronics, as I have convertyed all my trailers to LED. Brighter, faster rate of change of brightness register faster in the human brain.
This is the first halo version I have used and I like it. Very bright and eye catching running light.
Ony two critiques: 1. These are wire leads, not plugins as I was told by rep.
2. Leads are short, only about 5 inches. which means splicing, and splice will be in restricted space near the light. Won’t reach any terminal box. I wish Optronics would make them at least 12 inches long.

Overall, great light.




by:

I installed two of these taillights on a 4X8 utility trailer. They are a appropriate size. I was very satisfied of the brightness of the LED's, even in daylight.




by:

They have been on my boat trailer, saltwater, for a year and no problems.




by:

Looks great! When installed, I am sure it will function perfectly.




by:

Just exactly the lights I need for my seed tender. You can’t get these lights at any local place and you had what I needed ordered on Friday and was delivered later Monday. Awesome service and quick on processing order.

The product is exactly what was described and expected. They arrived securely packed and had no issues.

Review from a similar GloLight in Trailer Lights


I have had these installed for a year now on my 14ft utility trailer. I love these lights! They are strong, durable, bright, and look so super cool at night! Most recently, last month, I trailered 1500 miles and through the mountains in West Virginia. They held up through curves and bumps and rainstorms and even dime-sized hail! I would recommend these to anyone who needs this style of light! I wish I had brackets enough to put two on each side... just so it would look extra bada**!

This one is for the “driver” side. It has the lens on the bottom for lighting the license plate. (It does not include the license plate holder. I like this one because you just push in the wires. I recommend this light.

Reverse lights are brighter than expected and look great on my trailer. I hope these are more theft resistant than the press in lights that came with my trailer. Overall much better lights than factory. As always etrailer delivers the best!

Review from a similar GloLight in Trailer Lights


Light is fine... mounting hole location was off by 1/8"... even though my trailer holes are slotted 1-1/2". Had to grind my trailer holes by hand in 90 degree heat to make your light fit... very frustrating and not cool.supposed to be a direct replacement per your own website.


Comments
Most GLOLight LED trailer lights have the mounting holes distanced at 2 inches from center to center.

Review from a similar GloLight in Trailer Lights


Upgrading our 1998 Coleman Grandview, the old incandescent just seemed too dim.
Nice light, only suggestion would be to list some wiring options, was a bit confusing going from the old Bargman to the new LED.
But I read through the Bargman page here and got squared away.

Pic is LED before anchoring compared to the stock on the right. BIG improvement.


Comments
Still great, nice and bright. They are a huge improvement over the factory incandescent signals.

Review from a similar GloLight in Trailer Lights


These lights were added to my cargo trailer that I pull behind my motorcycle. These help to make sure that people see me when I am on the road. The lights were easy to install with the grommets and pigtails that I ordered at the same time. All the products worked together well and made the project easy to do. Love these lights and will buy more if needed.

  • What Replacement Taillights do I Need for My 2005 Haulmark Motorcycle Trailer?
    Without knowing the exact model of 2005 Haulmark motorcycle trailer you have, I did find some photos of different models of 2005 Haulmarks. From the photos, it looks like the trailer has long, oval taillights at center height at the rear of the trailer. They also appear to have a black border around the lights. With that being said, I cannot recommend the exact replacement you need without the current dimensions of your lights. For example, if your current lights measure 7-1/2" wide x...
