Remote-Controlled Wireless Tail Lights
"Repairing or replacing broken tail lights on farm equipment and boat trailers used to be an ongoing headache for me and many people I know," the Malta, Montana rancher says. "With the repair time and replacement costs involved, I knew there had to be a better way, so I spent 2 1/2 years designing and perfecting these portable, magnetic lights."
The convenient system comes with two magnetically-backed lights, and a remote control transmitter for operating them while driving.
The system provides turn signals, running lights, brake lights, and hazard lights, depending on the driver's commands. The lights can be moved from one trailer to another in a matter of minutes without any tools.
They're powered by long-lasting D-cell batteries and the remote uses two "AA" batteries. The system comes with a one-year warranty.
Stiles says that the lights are extremely durable, with all of the electronics set in epoxy and sealed with silicone spray. There are 18 LED, "20,000-hour" bulbs in each light, so they will work reliably for years to come.
The lights are controlled by radio wave signals so the remote doesn't have to be pointed toward the lights. Also, each remote has its own code, so no other remotes on the road will affect your set of lights.
"The remote has a fairly long range û it'll work from a semi's cab all the way back to a pup trailer," Stiles says. "These lights offer the security of knowing you're traveling more safely while using them, but they can also be used as a back up at other times. You usually don't find out that you have a tail light problem until you're away from home and it's dark. With these along, it's no problem to get home because they're so quick and easy to use. You will never again be without lights when you need them.
"We have been selling Easy-On Wireless Taillights for nearly 3 years now and we have many satisfied customers. Our customers informed us that there are additional uses for these lights.

None of us are immune to light troubles. In today's world these lights are cheap insurance."
