At last, a solution for the dingey Model Y truck light! You probably know (because we don't sell a replacement) that the small round light in the roof of the Model Y truck is not replaceable, and the openness of the truck doesn't provide many options to add additional light. 

Enter our Model Y lightbar! Now, we only recommend you purchase this if you have a trunk cover installed, like this one. because It provide the perfect mounting point for the lightbar. You could install it on the rear of the second row, but the light would be facing you, and is pretty bright. So your best deal is to bundle the two products, but if you already have a cover of some sort, here's where you buy the lightbar on its' own.

Featuring:

  • 12" lightbar (57 LED's) & CE-certified
  • Plugs into the 12v socket, with a power switch
  • Magnetic sensor to detect with the trunk is open or closed
  • Various clips and foam adhesive to complete your installation

As always, the video is your best bet to understand how to install it. It's easy, as long as you don't mind sitting in your trunk while you do it :-) Check out the before and after below, we are not messing around here (photos are taken with the same manual camera settings, no trickery or filters!)

 

 

We've got one slightly long video to show you both the cargo cover installation, and then the lightbar installation, since they're often purchased together. Use the chapters in the video timeline to skip to the section you need :-)

How does the lightbar attach?

It's supplied with a couple of strips of black foam adhesive. We strongly recommend installing it with a cargo/trunk cover like this one, as it provides the best location for a light like this. You could of course just install it to one side, or on the seatback, but it's very bright to look at, so uncovered positions are not ideal, but feel free to get creative!

How bright is it?

The lightbar emits approx. 300lux at a color temperature of 7000k, so it's a nice, bright white light, without the hint of blue.

Is it on all the time?

No. It's supplied with a magnetic closure sensor, so it's only on when the trunk is open. The sensor fits to the interior trim of the trunk, and a small magnet to the liftgate. We suggest a position for these in the installation video.

Is is safe to use in my Tesla?

Every light we sell is CE-certified, which means they conform with European health, safety, and environmental protection standards. there is no US equivalent, so we use CE testing since it's a requirement of sale for electronic goods in the EU, and is a globally recognized standard.
