How to Install the Optronics LED Trailer Tail Light


Hi, everyone. Aiden here with etrailer.com, and today we're gonna be taking a look and showing you how to install this Optronics LED taillight. Like with any other taillight replacement, you're gonna get your running light like you see here, our brake light, and turn signal. Everything's going to work really well, and those 10 diodes for your LEDs are going to be pretty darn bright, and they're gonna last a lot longer than a typical incandescent bulb and be much more power efficient too. You've got this durable polycarbonate construction all around from the lens to the outer flange here. So I don't think any sort of rocks or impacts are gonna have a big effect on this.

I think it's gonna hold up well over time. Everything on here is sonically sealed so water intrusion won't be an issue. It's even submersible so if you do plan on putting this on a boat trailer or something that's gonna be in and around water, you don't have to worry about any of that. Speaking of that outer flange here, you can see it's got four different mounting locations on the top and bottom and the two sides here. So you can use that to mount it in a pretty low profile setting.

Our trailer today had two existing holes that we just reused for our hardware. It doesn't come with hardware so you will need to pick that up, but you can see it is on there very solid. No shaking or anything on the trailer. And then speaking of that installation, everything's gonna be really straightforward. It's a whole plug and play system, and if you don't have that PL3 plug on your trailer you can pick that up separately, but let's check out how we did it.

We'll start our installation off by removing our old light. The one we have here is just attached with this grommet piece here. So we'll get a plastic trim panel tool and use that to pry up around the edges until we can get that out of the housing here on the trailer. Kind of working our way around like this. Once we have it removed, we can come around back to our PL3 plug and unplug it, and then go and grab our new light.

So our trailer already has the PL3 plug on it. If you don't have this piece, you can pick it up separately and hard wire it into your whole trailer wiring. But from here, all we need to do is plug it in like so, and we can put all the wiring back up into this compartment and we can mount the light using the four mounting holes on the light. So this trailer already has two holes on the top and bottom. So we're just gonna run our screws through there to attach the light. This doesn't come with any hardware so you will want to either reuse your old hardware depending on the light you're removing, or pick up some new hardware at the store to attach this however you see fit for your trailer. With everything plugged in, we can go ahead and test our lights starting with our taillights, our turn signal, and our brake lights. Then once we verify that everything is working, we're ready to hit the road. And that'll do it for our look at this Optronics LED taillight. Thanks for watching..
