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 at this LED tail light from Optronics. It's gonna have a nice, clear lens with red LEDs. So if you've maybe got a white enclosed trailer or something you wanna color match this clear lens to, I think that would be a really good fit. Most of the other options are gonna be a red lens with white LEDs.

So this one is a little bit different in that regard but otherwise let's check it out. You are gonna get all your standard tail light functions. We've got the running light on right now but you also get your turn signal and your brake lights. Now because of the clear lens, I actually feel like compared to some of the other options that we've checked out today this gets a bit brighter than some of them or at least that lens doesn't filter out as much of the light as a red tinted lens might. So if you are looking for something that's gonna be plenty bright at night these LEDs are gonna do a great job at doing that.

So everything on here is going to be a polycarbonate construction from the lens to the outer flange here, keeping it nice and impact resistant. You're also going to have a sonically sealed construction. So water intrusion shouldn't be an issue. If you plan on putting this on your boat trailer, having it in or around water, it is submersible and water won't be an issue here. Now speaking of that outer flange, we do have our four mounting locations around the edge there.

You can mount it up however you see fit. You will need your own install hardware to get it attached. But aside from that install is really easy. It's got that industry standard, Pl3 plug at the back. So it's just a plug and play install.

If you don't have that plug on your trailer you can pick that piece up separately here at etrailer, but otherwise let's check out that install process. 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 I'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. With the old one removed we can just go ahead and plug in our new light to that standard Pl3 plug. Again, if you don't have this already on your trailer, you can pick up that part separately, get it all hardwired in and you'll be good to go. Once it's connected though, we can put all the wires into this cavity here and put up our light using the existing holes that we have on our trailer on the top and bottom and our old hardware that we had to attach it. Again, it does not come with its own hardware. So you may need to pick that up yourself. With everything attached and plugged in we can go ahead and test our lights starting with our taillights, our left turn signal, and our brake lights. Once we verified that everything is in working order we're ready to hit the road. And that'll do it for our look at this Optronics, LED tail light. Thanks for watching..
