Brand: Just Add Lightness


Our Caterham 7 High Level LED Third Brake Light enhances the look of your car whilst adding a valuable safety aspect to your Caterham 7. LED Third brake lights are proven to reduce the reaction time of a driver in a following vehicle and considerably reduce their stopping distance.

A difference in reaction time of just 0.2 seconds at 75 mph translates into 21 feet extra braking distance for the cars behind. This can literally be the difference between life and death.

This JAL kit is available with various size clamps (32, 38 or 45mm) and 1.5m of wire to connect directly to your existing brake light circuit. This is a 5 minute upgrade and is easily one of the best safety modifications for your Caterham 7.

An optional Paint Pen is available to paint the P-Clip gloss black to match your roll bar.

    An excellent product and, in my opinion, a very useful safety addition for any Caterham. I like the style and design of the light too. Most drivers in modern day bigger cars are sitting higher up where their eye-line is not automatically drawn to the low-level rear light clusters on Caterhams. This addition increases the chances of the driver behind seeing the Caterham in front braking meaning they can react quicker reducing the chances of collision.
    I also purchased the additional black paint pen for the P-clip and it definitely makes a neater finish to the installed product – I even painted the bolt head too for the complete black look – matches the black roll bar perfectly. The only thing I’d say about the paint pen is that it can leave a slightly tacky feel so I sprayed the p-clip and bolt-head with clear-coat to ensure a durable blemish-free finish.
    Fitting was straightforward and the video on the web-site was an excellent aid. It took me a little while to find the brake light wiring connector in the chassis loom but that’s because I did too good a job of hiding it when I carried out my Caterham kit-build. Personally, I found it easier to remove the off-side rear wheel to carry out a neat finish to the wiring but this is not essential – I have a rear-exit exhaust so this made access slightly tighter on my car.
    Great product again from JAL.

    Great product. Came swiftly and when I discovered my car didn’t have the subloom pre fitted Doug replied to my email within a couple of hours (on a Sunday) with the relevant links (shout out to Chris at Redline who was equally as helpful and efficient). All fitted and looks great. Finally, I just want to add a big thank you to Doug for sponsoring the Fish &Chip run. It was my first time and what an amazing day!

    I purchased this for my Westfield. It fits great on the MSA rear cage. Wired into the lighting easily. The only thing I had to purchase extra was a slightly larger p clamp as the roll bar is slightly wider than the caterham bar. The light is bright and great quality. Would certainly recommend.

    Swift answer to query (over Christmas break!) & also quick dispatch/delivery. Fitting was straightforward – I had Seven on axle stands & would recommend at least removing RH rear wheel to make access to connector easier.
    Very neat installation and makes no real difference to vision through rear view mirror, which I was previously wondered about.
    Video installation guide was good & helpful.

    I’ve been thinking about a high level brake light ever since I got my caterham 12 months ago . Looked at lots of third high level brake lights , And this led light is just what I was looking for.
    It’s so bright , a Top quality light thanks for supplying me with another fantastic product. Thanks again JAL .

    Looks good and nice and bright. Easy to fit using the extra loom from Caterham inline with the loom to the rear light cluster beside tank as my 1998 car doesn’t have the connectors built in. I used the nearside one to give a neater cable run with my rollbar- also marginally less inaccessible than the offside main one! Also brought spade connector up into boot for ease of connection and protection. Excellent service and advice from Doug at JAL😊

    If your life is important for you, you put this light on your roll over bar. People in other cars are playing with their cell phones and you don’t want them to miss your brakelights.

    Really bright third brake light, very easy to install. And very importantly for me in such a small and low down car is that it is fully visible even when you are running with the full hood.

  58. Robert G. (verified owner)

    This is basically a small red LED ‘searchlight’ which is intensely bright and will certainly help my Caterham be seen by following vehicles when braking. Its also very well made being both well-finished and sturdy.

    Neither of the P-clips supplied, one large and one small, fitted my roll bar which has a single 38mm diameter diagonal strut, but Doug got one to me in a couple of days which fits perfectly. *(Please note – 38mm p-clips now available as standard – JAL)

    My car, which is a 2003 Roadsport, didn’t have the high-level brake light sub-loom fitted as shown in the installation video, but these are available directly from Caterham at a modest cost. I assume that more recent models have them as standard.

    Overall, I’m very happy with the product.

    Like most purchasers you’ll have trawled Blatchat and deliberated options. Ultimately preferred alternative to the adapted LED rain-light option, now legitimised by being the Caterham Academy required race brake light (albeit two of them) and sold by them. Plug and play with no need for anything but connectors (no resistors in-line). Check your loom – my ’95 model uses male bullet connectors with female Lucas-type nodes (not the Econoseal connectors of later Caterhams, or the contemporary connectors in the excellent JAL video). But the principle is the same – two male bullets crimped-on, and two four-way female nodes directly connected into the supply/return to the rear off-side rear light unit – black-to-black; red-to-green/purple. Job done. Super bright, quite directional, aesthetically pleasing, with a red lens and tear-drop body. Better price than Caterham parts too! Great communication and dedication to customer satisfaction – Doug threw in a couple of bullet connectors. Fettle the P-clip into an ‘O-clip’ to seat the tail of the light tight to the bracket/rollbar – I painted the clip black and used two suitable rubber grommets to sleeve the bolt holes in the clip tight to the bolt. Got stuck on an A road waiting to turn right against oncoming traffic, kept my foot on the brake and am convinced it made me more visible for passing traffic from behind.

  76. Paul (verified owner)

    Doug promptly responded to my questions before I ordered the light.

    The light was very easy to fit and is much brighter than my original high level brake light.

    I was initially apprehensive about losing rear visibility if I mounted it on the cross over point of the rollbar but Doug suggested trying it in a couple of other locations and even offered me a refund if I was not satisfied (and had not used the light). I’m happy to report that visibility is not adversely affected with the light on the top of the cross over point of the rollbar.

    Bright quick reacting brake light, very impressed. Easy installation and great support from JAL. I like how the shape mirrors the headlights and its abit more interesting to the boring strip LED high level lights of “regular” cars
