What are rock lights?
A rock light is simply an LED light that can be attached to any number of surfaces on your car through various methods which depend on the type of light in particular. They come in a variety of colors and are used primarily for decoration of your vehicle.
They first started getting used as decoration by putting them on the undercarriage of the car or truck to light up the area around the perimeter of the vehicle. Many car enthusiasts would use them to stand out when trying to show off other modifications to the vehicle.
These days, they are also used for increased visibility under the carriage especially in off road applications.
When to use rock lights
It didn’t take long for people to understand that there are many other uses besides just making your car look cool by placing them on the undercarriage. And even those that do put them there are not just using them for decoration. You can see rocks and debris much more clearly around your vehicle than headlights or fog lights can. Not only that, but when putting your car in reverse, the rock lights can provide much more visibility to what is behind you.
They are so versatile that you can also place them in the hood of your car so you can see the engine more clearly if you need to do repairs or even just to check your fluids.
The interior of your car can also be illuminated in a much more personalized way than you would normally get from the factory default interior lights. Then, boats can also use them and provide more lighting in areas where putting a regular light would not be feasible thus adding to the security.
Since they are also waterproof, fishermen can use them under their boat to attract fish when fishing at night.
How to use them
Accessing the lights to turn them on, off or change colors can usually be done with your smartphone or tablet when using the Bluetooth feature. Other models have their own remote control system that makes it less burdensome to always have your phone nearby to control them.
