Will Bargman LED Tail Lights be Visible at Slight Angle


I am considering purchase of Bargman #47-84-610 surface mount lights to replace my incandescent tail lights. The lights would be mounted on a surface that is angled down about 12 degrees from vertical see picture attached. Will this angle adversely affect the visibility of the lights? I ask because I know that some LEDs are somewhat directional. Thank you.

Thanks for the photo, and the slight angle will not adversely affect the visibility of the Bargman tail lights you asked about:

- Bargman LED Double Tail Light # 47-84-610

These LEDs are not directional, they do light up directly, and are quite bright so they'll be very noticeable. It is definitely a good idea to replace your incandescent lights with LEDs as they last much, much longer and have little power draw.

The other thing you will need if you don't have any are butt connectors, the Deka Heat Shrink Butt Connectors - 12-10 Gauge # DW05745-5 and 16-14 Gauge # DW05744-5.
