This page features a super bright, 12-LED brake light for the trailer hitch cover that provides added safety when the tow hitch is not in use. The lamp size is a convenient 3-1/4 x 3-1/4 inches to fit 2" standard tow hitch and functions as tail/brake light or rear fog light. The lamp comes with a hitch pin with lock and has 1/4" foam lining in order to ensure that the fit is snug. The LED brake light has a flat 4-pin trailer connector (2 contacts).
Q: Why does rear fog blink when turn signals are on?
A: The LED brake light is intended for use on a vehicle with a separate brake light circuit. If the vehicle actives left/right turn signal for braking, then this LED tow hitch brake light will flash on turn signal and will stay lit during braking.
Q: Why does the LED brake light fits the tow hitch, but feels loose?
A: The tow hitch cover is only secured by the tow hitch lock to make sure that it does not fall off, so the lock is not completely tight. There is already some foam in the inner side of the tow hitch cover, but if you feel that you would like the tow hitch cover to fit more snug, you can always add some foam to hold the tow hitch cover in place.
Q: What if the LED brake light wiring is not long enough for my vehicle?
A: The length of the wire for the LED brake light is designed to work for most trucks and SUVs with tow hitch. In some rare cases if the wiring is too short, you can extend the wires. Cut the adapter wires and extend the wiring.
Q: Why does the LED brake light not light up after I plugged in the adapter?
A: In some rare cases, the vehicle's positive/negative are reversed. The LED assembly is polar sensitive, the polarity reverse causes LED to not light up. This is rare, but can be fixed. Take the adapter and cut the wires. Flip the wires to reverse the polarity.
