FAQ 3rd Brake Light


What is a 3rd Brake Light?

Third brake lights are also known as center high mount stop lamps (CHMSL) because they are commonly installed high and smack at the center of a vehicle's rear window or deck lid where it's most visible to tailing motorists. Safety is definitely improved with this light in place.

- Product is DOT approved 

What's the difference between tail light and brake light? 

In other words, the same external covering is over both lights. Your vehicle's might be a bit unique, with separate globes. Tail lights are engaged when the you turn on your headlights or when your parking brake is on, whereas the brake lights will light up immediately when you apply pressure to the brakes.
