Premium Side View LED Bolt
Q: so for a motorcycle(12voltbatt) I basically bring my red to my battery and ground my black to any metal
- by davide (MTL canada)
A: Yes
Q: Do you think there is enough metal on the thread body to have these turned and threaded down to an m6?

M6 is the most common license plate bolt size.. Im suprised that these are m8. - by Mike (USA)
A: There probably is enough metal, but we can't say for certain, as we haven't tried it yet.
Q: Any chance you these could be dimmed for a car interior application?
A: Yes, of course! They can be dimmed with one of our LED Dimmers, or you could even use a simple resistor.
Q: could these be used as signal lights on a motorcycle? - by Dave (London,Ont,Canada)
A: Yes. Go for it!
Q: Will these be bright enough for a good rear turn signal?
A: Depends... hard to say because its a bit subjective.
Q: How many amps does the motorcycle license plate LED's use for 1 bolt? Need to know what size fuse to use if I have 4 bolts hooked together? - by Raymond (Canton, NC)
A: 20 mA
Q: I am going to hook 4 up to my raptor grill and I'm going to wire all of them together. I am thinking of installing a switch so I can turn them off in the daytime. If I do add a switch will I need a relay and if so what size and kind? - by Raymond (Canton NC)
A: No relay needed, just wire the hot leads and ground leads together, then wire that to the switch.
Q: I want to wire 6 of these (3 on each side) on the back side of my cutout fender flares to the tail lights. I know I should run a resistor but do you recommend doing. I also want to do these on the front fenders but not sure how many I want to add.
A: These are prewired with a resistor, add an inline fuse to protect them. For the front fenders the quantity is dependent on how much light you want, that is a personal choice.
Q: Can it be wired up to a basic car battery without any additional products?
- by michael (Hazleton)
A: Yes. You may want to use a fuse, although you don't have to.
Q: Can I use this as turn light ?
A: Yes
Q: My vehicle is a 24v system, how will these hold up to that or can you recommend a resistor for me to use with the system? I am only going to run two of them but i might wire it with some other LEDs. - by Ira (United States)
A: If you're wiring two, why not just wire them in series?
Q: What kind of resistor is used for this LED? And is it included in the wiring?
A: A standard carbon film resistor is already installed inside of the bolt, so it isn't even visible. It is thus designed to work on 12 volts.
Q: Is it possible to cut the thred bolt down in order to get underside clearence or are the wires moulded into the thread?
- by David (Motherwell, Scotland)
A: Its certainly possible, if you're careful.
Or if you need 100's then we'll be happy to custom make them with a different length.
Q: Do you include the nut along with each bolt? - by Alec (Boise Idaho)
A: Yes, we include two nuts, and a snap-fit spring. You can either use the nuts, or the snap-fit spring.
Q: What material is the bolt made of? ( plastic or metal) - by Jeff (California)
A: Aluminum (Metal) which is quite durable.
Q: I have a single power wire coming into my license plate that I'd like to illuminate with two LED Bolts. Will this product wire up correctly in a single wire application? If not do you have a way to make it work or do you have another product that would work?
A: Assuming the single wire you're referring to is positive, just hook up the red wire from this to that wire.
Then hook up the black wire from this to any ground/metal part. It will then light up.
Q: How long are the leads/wires on the LED bolts? - by Calvin (Kirkwood, PA)
A: 1 meter (3.3 feet)
