In an effort to bring greater visibility to trailers when the vehicle is braking, engineers at Grote also developed the auxiliary strobe and stop lamp, an add-on warning light that can be wired into a trailer’s existing brake light circuit.

Grote says the auxiliary strobe and stop lamp was designed to draw the attention of traffic and give motorists greater warning of braking. Braking initiates a sequence of five amber flashes in four seconds, followed by a solid-red burn.
