BackOFF™ Brake Hold Module
Price: $64.95

Product Code: SDC-01020


The BackOFF™ Brake Hold Brake Light Module detects your speed and automatically turns your brake lights on when you are stopped or stopping/slowing down - allowing you to keep both of your feet and hands free.
Connects to your electronic speed pick-up sensor (will not work with cable driven speedometers) to keep your brake lights on when you release your brakes but are still decelerating or stopped. Whether you're stopped and resting or coasting to a red light your rear end visibility is greatly increased by the brake hold module, as it will illuminate your brake lights while you're not compressing your brakes. During installation you'll have 2 different brake light flash patterns to choose from (listed below). This module is designed to work with standard incandescent brake lights, LED brake lights, or a combination of both.

Note: This module is rated at 10 amps which can generally drive up to (3) standard bulbs.

Flash patterns to choose from:

Mode 1: Causes your brake light(s) to automatically emit a visual alerting signal of 3-4 short light flashes, followed by 1 steady on light for 4 seconds. This signal automatically repeats itself as long as the brakes are applied.
Mode 2: Causes your brake light(s) to emit 5 quick flashes, followed by a steady on light as long as you are stopped/braking.

Brake Alert

If the Brake Hold Module is holding your brake lights on for you and you wish to gain the attention of someone behind you; simply tap your brakes and your brake lights will flash 5 times then return to steady on. This alert feature is useful if you see someone approaching quickly behind you and you want to make sure you're seen. These flash patterns are not random, but have been selected because of their ability to gain and retain following driver's attention. Most states drivers handbooks recommend that you flash your brakes when slowing or stopping. The BackOFF™ Brake Hold automatically facilitates compliance and enhances safety. Install the BackOFF™ Brake Hold and see how much more effective your brake light can be!


To install, wire the BackOFF™ Brake Hold Brake Light Module in-line with your existing brake light wire. Locate your brake light wire and cut the wire into 2 (use a test light or multi-meter to find proper wire). Choose the mode you would like from the 2 available and connect the mode wire (red/white or white/red) to the wire leading to the rear of your bike, and connect the red wire from the module to the cut brake light wire leading toward the front of the bike. Tap the black wire from the module to a ground wire and read instructions below for the optional yellow wire. Finally peel the paper lining off of the double sided adhesive pad and mount the module to a clean, flat surface. (Be sure to cap off the unused mode wire)
