Essential Info

Reduce your risk of being involved in a rear-end collision with a device that installs in minutes. The Sudden Stop Flashing License Plate Frame activates automatically when you slam on your brakes, flashing to alert the driver behind you. Studies have shown that flashing brake lights significantly reduce driver reaction time: Only a quarter-second quicker reaction time at 60 miles per hour will equal an extra 20 feet of stopping distance.

What's Included

  • License plate frame
  • Batteries (pre-installed)
  • More Info

    Easy Installation
    The Sudden Stop Flashing Frame installs as easily as putting on a license plate: All you need is a screwdriver. This protective device is not part of your car's electrical or braking system, so there are no wires to attach.

    How it Works
    This flashing license plate frame uses ultra-bright LED technology to attract attention so tailing drivers can stop before it is too late. The Sudden Stop Flashing Frame does not flash on normal braking, only hard panic stops, when its LED lights flash on and off rapidly for three seconds.

    Note:Check with state and local laws on specialty lighting products before installing on your vehicle.

    Don't know if it works correctly. No one has seen it flash when I stop. I've stopped abruptly and it still did not work. It works at times when I open and close the trunk.

    Cannot even describe what a relief it is to have this on my son's car. He drives to school at Georgia Tech in Atlanta from Richmond and if you've ever taken that trip you know what I'm talking about . . . you are driving directly into the sun and the people behind cannot see your brakes because of it. Coming up over a hill you don't know the person ahead has hit the brakes until you are over the hill as well and by then it could be too late. This puppy does the trick!! It's wild how it does not light up during normal driving (I was skeptical) and only when you apply the brakes suddenly. It really works!!

    I'm very happy with the product, it's price, and the speed pf delivery.

    Easy to install, but longer screws may be needed. They were not available from manufacturer as stated.

    I bought one of these for my Crown Vic patrol car. It wouldn't fit because it's too wide and I had to return it. Too bad because it's a great idea just need to redesign it a bit.

    Shipment was excellant, and the installation was very easy. I have not had time or a reason to test the items performance, but that is a good thing.
    Sharon -- boston, Massachusetts   2/28/2008
    This saved my son from getting in a car accident. Stormy night, lots of stop and go driving, there ended up being a collision up ahead of him and he and others stopped and the guy behind him told him becauses of the light, he noticed my son stopping where if he hadn''t had it, because of the storm, he would have slammed into him. Small price to pay for security, now all my kids have them.
    JEFFREY T. -- piqua, OH   12/13/2007
    Funny...the lights "pulse" whenever I open the trunk. I do not know if they do that while I am driving and hit the brakes, though. It's a great idea, but I'll have to test it more thoroughly this winter before I buy more for our other cars.

    Does NOT fit on ALL cars!! Of rear bumper recessed for shape of plate, forget it.
    DENNIS -- madison, TN   10/13/2007
    Seems to work OK - it may take TOO MUCH of a sudden stop to activate. The batteries are sealed into the frame and non-replaceable. Once they die, you have to toss the whole frame and buy a new one. The LEDS are bright and the frame works automatically when you panic stop - and hopefully keeps the driver behind you from hitting you. Worth the small price charged, I guess.

    I really thought this thing was going to be hard to put on, but it was so easy. My 5 year old and I did it in less than 3 minutes!
    Sarah V. -- springfield, IL   8/27/2007
    I purchased this product and I am very pleased with how easy it was to install. It is a great deal for the piece of mind.
    ROBERT -- gibbons, AB   8/18/2007
    Your product was received quickly. No issues with shipping to Canada. The product was easy to install. Seems to be working, but can't tell, as it is in the back of the car. I have not gotten it to work with just stopping quicky beside someone. RS
    Bill -- Florida   7/30/2007
    Wow! Those lights are bright! This is so easy to put on and my wife feels a lot more secure with it on her suburban full of kids. Thanks Smarthome for carrying such cool products!
    Walt McKinley -- park city, Utah   7/14/2007
    I think this product saved me the other day! I slammed on my brakes the other day in a rain storm and saw the car behind me stop a lot farther behind me than I have ever noticed! For less than a half-tank of gas this product has definitely paid for itself. I am getting one for every car in my garage!
    Megan -- charleston, WV   6/7/2007
    Sudden Stop is great and so easy to install! Whenever I get to someone's car that does have Sudden Stop I feel a little uneasy! This is such a small investment for safety and such an amazing value! I would not travel without one!
