LED Lights - USA Carrier Tail Light Kit
(Not compatible with MotoTote Mini Bike Rack)
4 Prong Inline Trailer Connector
Weatherproof Enclosure & Wiring
I installed the LED light kit on my MotoTote rack and like it so much that I bought one and installed it on my Kuat bike rack. Both work great!
Glad I bought these. My bikes blocked. My tail lights, and the things worked out perfect. Highly recommend.
The LED light kit came with my m3 carrier. I like the fact that it allows for a more visible light source since the lights on my truck are partially obstructed when hauling my bike. Less chance of one of the many idiots on the road running into me!
You need to buy an extension and adapters to be able to use this.
Thanks for your review and feedback. We apologize that you needed to purchase an extension for the light kit for your Dual carrier. We are working on a solution to change the product’s configuration to better accommodate Dual carriers.
Set up was a breeze with the instructions provided!
Come on guys, provide screws that fit FLAT against the plastic frame and NOT chamfered screws that crack the slot when tightened.
get these -- they are worth it. nice quality and safety first.
Overall disappointed with these lights. Yes the lights work and are bright but they fit really poorly. The left and right light sit at different heights and the left points slightly up. As the holes are pre drilled in the rack there is no room to adjust. Sure I could drill new holes but for the premium price of the rack plus the high cost of the lights I shouldn’t have to. Also the zip ties are too short. The wiring harness is well made but I’d go with an off brand light kit for 1/4 the cost. For the high cost of these I expected a better fit.
Thanks for your review and feedback. We are glad that the light kit is functional and working. We apologize for the fit issues; we strive to deliver the best product - but sometimes manufacturing in mass has small imperfections. We will look to improve our rigorous QA process to deliver you the best.
The LED light kit flickers and throws an error code on my BMW. I'm told this is a known issue with these units but nonetheless, the company doesn't yet have solutions other than letting the customer know it happens with newer vehicles. Considering the brake lights are safety equipments meant to keep me and my properties safe, I'm dissatisfied with the company's decision to continue to sell them without a fix. I don't recommend this purchase without having confidence or the time to tinker with electronics.
Hi Chang, You are right - a small percentage of vehicles will show an error code. We've been unable to come up with a practical a solution. The error message is caused apparently because the amperage load that LED lights draw is so low that the vehicle does not 'see' them as connected or sees them as burned out.
This seems to be an issue with other brands of LED lights as well, judging by the popularity of trailer light load resistor kits on Amazon https://www.amazon.com/iBrightstar-50W-6ohm-Load-Resistors/dp/B07HF47RV9.
In the last year or so, the reports we receive of this issue have drastically reduced. We believe this is because the electronics on later model vehicles have been updated for LED compatibility.
For anyone experiencing this issue, we recommend you get the MotoTote Standard light kit - https://mototote.com/products/mototote-standard-light-kit
Overall, I think the light kit is a necessary upgrade. This does provide exceptional safety, and visibility. Only thing I would say, is that the wood screws they used to mount the lights to the frame could be improved. I ended up, tapping the tubing with 10/32 machine threads and using stainless machine screws, huge improvement, also, it’s kind of hard to install the lights after the platform is installed.
