The Optronics Magnetic LED Tow Light Kit - Weatherproof - Red Lens - 20' Wiring Harness - Qty 2 # TLL21RK has a protective label pad on the bottom to keep from scratching paint. You can see this at the 2 minute mark of the attached review video. I do recommend wiping down the vehicle with a microfiber cloth before putting the lights on simply to remove any dust or debris that could be abrasive between the scratch free label and the paint for added security.

Question:

I sold my Jeep Wrangler and now plan to flat tow our 2018 Ford Fiesta SE. It is not an EcoBoost. I have a Blue Ox Patriot 3 braking system and a Blue Ox Alpha motorhome mount tow bar. I need: Base plate for the Fiesta. Adapters for my tow bar (if required). Magnetic LED taillights. (I don't want to mess with a wiring kit) Battery disconnect switch. Replacement breakaway connection for the Patriot 3.

For your 2018 Ford Fiesta SE without EcoBoost you will want the following:

-Blue Ox Base Plate Kit - Removable Arms # BX2650 which is directly compatible with your Blue Ox Alpha tow bar.

-If you want magnetic lights, you can use the wired # TLL21RK we previously discussed. If you want wireless magnetic lights, I recommend the Pilot Magnetic Tow Lights - Red LEDs - 4-Way Flat and 7-Way RV Connector - Wireless # NV-5164 for a 7-way trailer connection or the Hopkins Magnetic Tow Lights - Red LEDs - 4-Way Flat Connector - Wireless # C6304.

- Roadmaster Automatic Battery Disconnect with Switch for Towed Vehicle w/ Supplemental Braking System # RM-766

- The Blue Ox Patriot 3 Radio Frequency, Portable Braking System - Proportional # BRK2019 you referenced utilizes the Second Vehicle Breakaway Kit for Blue Ox Patriot Supplemental Braking Systems # BRK2505.

If you need a high-low adapter will be determined by measurements. I've linked a help article to assist and have linked the page to all the high-low adapter options as well.
