Protection against rear-end collisions.

Smart lamp provides early, automatic deceleration indication.  
It's got your back!

For Motorcycles, Cars, Vans, Buses, Heavy Duty-Trucks, and Trailers.

 AUTOMATIC brake light that works when it should:

  • Downshifts & Engine Braking
  • Front-end Collisions
  • Vehicle Malfunctions that Suddenly Slow Vehicle  

Installs just like the bulb it replaces -- no wiring modifications or splice-in module

Stoptix is the first AUTOMATIC brake lamp.

Stoptix* is the only automatic brake light that requires no modifications to your motorcycle or vehicle wiring because it is the first product to offer a deceleration indicator solution inside the lamp, self-powered and self-illuminating.  Simply swap your bulb for our smart lamp.  

Stoptix increases visibility via early deceleration indication and reduces your chances of being rear-ended.  Indicating deceleration one second earlier at 55 mph is 80 feet of additional stopping distance for following vehicles.

Where Available

ORDER NOW from our store!  Our big roll-out was at the American International Motorcycle Expo on October 13.  The product received a great response from distributors, dealers, and consumers.  

Watch our social media for the announcement on where you can purchase Stoptix. 


If your bulb is an 1157 (12 Volt) or an 1154 (6 Volt) type and not rear-loading then the Stoptix lamp should fit.  Our products do not replace rear-loading 1157 and 1156 lamps because our lamp diameter exceeds one inch which is the diameter of the opening in the light housing.   

CAN Bus:  Stoptix lamps have been tested in the Harley-Davidson HDLAN (CAN Bus) system confirming that the bike can "learn" the Stoptix lamp in 5 minutes with the hazard lights on, even with incandescent lamps installed in the front of the bike.

We showed the Stoptix automatic brake lamp to riders at the end of the Trail of Tears Ride. We took no longer than 30 seconds introducing and demonstrating Stoptix. These interviews were unscripted and shot in a single take.

Why You Need a Stoptix Lamp

Motorcycles:  You don't have to remember to squeeze the brake lever when you downshift or rapidly slow down under engine braking.  It also works great for when your bike runs out of fuel, suddenly slowing the bike until you switch over to the reserve tank. 

Passenger Cars:  Reduce your chances of being rear-ended and the possibility of your passengers being injured or worse.  Stoptix lamps are a small cost to pay for this level of increased safety.

Cargo and Fleet:  Reduce your companies exposure, especially when self-insured, by reducing the chance of the truck or fleet vehicle being rear-ended.  Cut your bottom line costs by reducing your exposure and liability with this very cost effective product.  Reduce the down time your business suffers while the vehicle is being repaired.  Reduce the likelihood of your cargo being damaged.  

Builders & Collectors:  You need to protect your investment by installing Stoptix lamps.  The last thing you need is to ruin months or years of work by being rear-ended.
