Semi-H Hanging Brake Light Buddy for use on trucks with Hanging Brake Pedals
How can I check my brake lights by myself?
For those of you that have a built in light circuit checker feature in your semi-truck, it only checks that your brake lights come on when that feature is activated. It does not test that your brake light switch is working when your brakes are applied. Brake Light Buddy checks your brake light switch as well as your brake lights.
Brake Light Buddy aids in assuring your Semi-Tractor’s Brake Lighting Devices are in compliance with US Code of Federal Regulation #396.11

Our brake light checker aids in keeping Drivers compliant with both Company and Federal Regulatory Trip Reporting.
