I would stay away from them. I bought a pair of the "undercover 8" lights a few years ago and they didnt work after a week of having them on my car.


One of the chiefs in my area used 2 sets of the "deck 2 dual" lights in his Impala. Last month I had to replace one pair (in his lower bumper (faced out at an angle) with real lights and another set he has (in the grille) needs to be replaced. They are not waterproof like the website claims.


Just my $.02

There was the same question asked a few weeks ago. China junk.


High failure rate, poor customer service with warranty/returns on failed lights.


Most are knock offs. You might aswell spend a few extra bucks and get a quality name brand light in good used condition for 20$ more, if even. Sometines even stumble upon new for the same price or cheaper.

+1. waste of money on junk that will break almost immediately after you've used it several times

I took apart on of those Quad Bars that company makes and all that was in it was 5mm leds with a mirror housing in it to reflect it more like the TIR version but it was worthless and Why is there so much metal in the making of that thing i opened it up and all that was in there was one little flasher the size of my thumb. Well yeah i ended up throwing away the LEDS and just keeping the flasher. One of my deputy fire chiefs has a bunch of those TIR4 LEDS by that company and well the Blues have burned out and most of the Reds are also messed up only 2 out of the 4 LEDS actually flash it looks very crappy. But you get what you pay for :roll:

You have to get very lucky to get a human to answer the phone if you call them. Messages left don't get calls returned. Their OKTAG sticks suck. Their TIR-3 & -4 lights will go into "shutdown" mode if you use anything like an FS400 for a switch box, since the quick "on/off/on" when you change positions on the pursuit switch can't be handled by the lights. When I called to see WTF was going on, the response from their service guy was that I should buy another switch box. I bought Whelen TIR-4s instead. Been working just fine for over a year now with that switch box, exterior mounted.


Their ET-7 mini-bar IS super bright, but the assembly quality sucks.
