The product was made very solid. The issue I have is the led lights have only one filament.
That means that you can use the led lights for stop and turn "OR" running lights. You can't hook them up for both running and brake and turn.
A call to factory was made to confirm.

              These goalposts make it a lot easier to land my boat. They keep it from drifting too far to either side as I pull it up the ramp.

              • Durable, corrosion resistant

                Comments about LED Lighted Post Guide-Ons:

                When backing an empty jet ski trailer down the ramp this is the only way I can really see where the trailer is. Have had some problems with the electrical hook up so have let the jet ski repair place do it for me.

                Service and delivery comments:

                Got here before I expected it; great prompt delivery service.

                THIS IS A JET-SKI TRAILER MUST HAVE. SOLVES THE LACK OF VISIBILITY ISSUES RELATED TO BACKING AN EMPTY TRAILER TO THE RAMP.
                PROVIDES EXCELLENT VISIBILITY ON THE HIGHWAY.
                IT IS A RUGGED PRODUCT.

                I HAVE NOT DISCOVERED ANYTHING NEGATIVE.
