We designed Beacon Light to make you, your passengers, and your bikes safer by having a bright bike rack light bar at the back of your vehicle that can be easily seen – even with multiple bikes mounted.

How do we do it? Using our innovative, proprietary mounting system, you simply and quickly secure Beacon Light to any of the bikes on your rack or the rack itself. Plug the other end into a standard 4-pin trailer connector and you’re all set!

When you’re ready to ride, simply remove Beacon Light and store in the included carrying case until you need it again. Beacon Light can be mounted in under a minute!

Beacon Light will illuminate when your tail lights are on and will brighten to full brightness when you apply the brakes. Beacon Light also works with your turn signals and will flash when you activate a turn signal or the hazard lights.

Our bike rack light bar is a unique lighting solution that addresses safety and compliance issues related to hauling bicycles on the back of a vehicle. Typically, when a vehicle has a bike rack installed and has one or more bicycles loaded on the bike rack, the vehicle’s lighting (tail, brake lights, and turn signals) are obscured creating safety and vehicle compliance issues. Beacon Light is a simple, yet innovative LED Light Bar, designed for a bike rack with meaningful benefits to the user. Our license plate bracket insures that your license plate is also visible!

Protect you, your passengers, and your bikes! Order Beacon Light today!

Size of light bar: 10.75″ L x 1.5″ H x 0.75″ W (depth)

Includes: Beacon Light, universal mounting system & hardware, and mini Torx screwdriver. All of  this in a convenient Beacon Light carry case!

    • Beacon Light (store manager)

      Thanks Mike! We’re glad to hear that you’re pleased with your Beacon light purchase!

  2. Douglas (verified owner)

    Surprisingly this product is made in Canada. It is well made of solid material and well worth the price. This is not junk from China.

  3. Paul Bratti (verified owner)

    Very good product. Works as advertised. Looking forward to keeping my rest of vehicle safe by making it more visible!

    • Beacon Light (store manager)

      Thanks Paul! Enjoy your Beacon Light!

  4. Brian W. (verified owner)

    Excellent auxiliary brake and signal light making the vehicle more visible. The light module and mounting hardware are too of excellent and durable quality !

    • Beacon Light (store manager)

      Thanks Brian! Enjoy your Beacon light.

  5. Claudette (verified owner)

    Simple to use and set up. Works great. Adds peace of mind that when bikes hide vehicle brake lights and directional signals, this light bar will alert drivers behind you that you are turning or stopping.

    • Beacon Light (store manager)

      Thanks Claudette! We’re glad that Beacon Light is making you more visible on the road!

  6. Steve (verified owner)

    Great light system to add to your bike rack for safety

  7. Christopher G. (verified owner)

    Haven’t used it yet but I hooked it up to my car and it’s super bright and I know it’ll be useful when using my bike rack and will use it anytime I’ll be using my bike rack.

  8. Bruce Smith (verified owner)

    I purchased the unit sight unseen. It is a well made quality unit. All parts are first class. I connected it to my car’s flat four light harness. All lighting functions worked as expected. The unit connected to my wife’s bike and is solid and sturdy. I purchased this light as a safety precaution. Our good friends were rear ended on the freeway with their e-bikes mounted on a rear mounted bike rack. This unit should provide extra safety to our travels with bikes mounted on the rear of our vehicle.

    • Beacon Light (store manager)

      Hello Bruce, thanks very much for your review! Enjoy your Beacon Light knowing that it makes you a whole lot more visible on the road!

  9. Jim (verified owner)

    Had only seen this product on line. When it arrived it was great to see it was just as good in both appearance and feel. Nice packaging and protective storage case.

  10. Mike K. (verified owner)

    Fantastic product works well on my hitch highly recommended

  11. Brian E. (verified owner)

    Easy to install. Love how it looks!

  12. Billy (verified owner)

    Works really well. Easy to install.

  13. Kelly D. (verified owner)

    Great light. Came in a padded carrying case. My Kuat Transfer V2 didn’t have any place to permanently mount a light, but the Beacon light easily attaches to the seat post. The knobs on the mounting bracket are easy to use. My taillights are blocked by the bikes so adding a light was definitely needed. I used the Beacon Light for the first time this past weekend, and it gave me peace of mind knowing that drivers behind me could see when I was braking and turning. I had a cop behind me too, and he didn’t pull me over, so all good! Thanks Beacon Light!

    • Beacon Light (store manager)

      Thanks for your review and picture submission, Kelly. We can see why you need your Beacon Light!! We’re glad to hear (and see!) that your Beacon light is making you more visible on the road! Enjoy!

  14. Gary Moore (verified owner)

    I am very impressed with the overall quality and presentation. Storage case and tools are appreciated. I haven’t used on the road yet, but I did plug it into two Vehicles. I do wish there was a larger clamp

    • Beacon Light (store manager)

      Thanks for your review, Gary. We can swap out the clamp that came with your kit with a larger one for an extra charge if you really need it. Just reach out to us!

  15. Richard A Sanders (verified owner)

    Excellent product attached easily to my Thule easy fold

  16. Carl White (verified owner)

    Customer service was excellent. I needed the light shipped ASAP & Beacon Light made it happen.

  17. CHRISTINE (verified owner)

    I’ve been looking for a light system to allow my brake lights, turn signal, and hazard lights to be visible on the rear of a camper van with a bike rack. I also wanted a product that was substantial, flexible, and plug and go with the 4-pin adaptor. The Beacon Bike Rack Bar fits the bill perfectly. I can clamp it on more than one way, and its visibility is outstanding. I have contacted the company’s customer service with some concerns, and they were excellent to work with. They are fair and stand behind their product. I don’t think you can go wrong with this product.

  18. Tom (verified owner)

    Easy to use. Does the job it is supposed to. At least that is what others have told me. I’ve recommended it to several of my friends.

  19. Sarah Wig

    Works great! Simple to use, so glad I bought it.

  20. Jane Morrison

    Perfect for the rear lights on our Leisure Travel Van and Hollywood bike rack!

  21. Mark Jorden

    Very simple to install and storage protector.

  22. William Baragar

    Works great & easy to install.

  24. Matthew Paugh

    All communication has been excellent so far, and will look forward to future products and work.

  25. John Pearrell

    I like the versatility of the light and the added comfort knowing my braking, turning and night driving are visible at the back of my bike rack.
