VLED LED Reverse Plate Frame Review

I saw these mentioned on this forum and decided to give it a shot. After I tinted my windows and smoked my tail lights backing up at night was a crapshoot. I wanting something small and discreet that wasn't going to cost me a fortune. I've been using it for about a week now and have been quite happy with it, especially for $50. I used some silicone sealant to seal up the back of it and will probably do the same on the front as a precaution. I'll probably also take it off and put a couple washers behind it to make it point down a little more. It's pretty bright and does exactly what I was hoping.

Here's the link if anyone is interested.

The other LED is just a 60" LED light bar from LED Glow on ebay. It functions as a running light, brake light, turn signals and lights up white when in reverse. The white doesn't really put out any light to help you see though. They're like $60 shipped and I've had good sucess with them.

Heres a link.

Did you install an inline fuse in the license plate frame wiring?

I did not. It is just spliced into my tail light wiring. Should I have?

I wouldn't have...low power draw and the circuit is already fused...risk is minimal but if it does have a problem it could take out every light on the circuit when it blows the fuse...so benefit of the inline fuse would be to isolate it from the rest of your circuit. Guess it depends on your preference.

I would have put an line fuse on it. I read where some people had problems with water entering the LED's and shorting out the frame and blowing the fuse for their lights. I would rather blow a fuse for the license plate frame then take the chance on blowing fuse on the truck lights, especially late at night. I was also looking at one of frames, I have been un decided on it because of the UV issues on the lens and poor sealing of the electronics. However I still may try it, because it is inexpensive.

^^ Agree...if there are known problems with these shorting out I would definitely change my answer to yes, fuse it...it's cheap and fast to throw one in.

Make sure you glue or silicone on the lense cover. The snap on features is worthless. Mine had fallen off and was lost within two days of the install.

It puts out great light though.

I actually already silicones the backside of it and planned to silicone the lense on as well just to be safe.
