What is an LED Halo ?
An LED Halo is a custom made circuit board with LEDs consecutively soldered onto it. They are made of a rigid material which cannot be bent or flexed so that when the LEDs are illuminated, they glow in a way that produces a specific shape. LED Halo’s come in a variety of sizes and shapes and are without a doubt one of the most eye catching modifications you can make to your vehicle. Truck Lighting Depot Halo rings can be seen clearly even in direct sunlight.
What is a “halo kit” ?

What makes Gold Standard Lighting Halo Kits better than similar competitor products ?
The biggest downfall of most companies’ halo designs are that the back of each halo ring is littered with tiny resistors. Over time, or due to improper installation, if one of these resistors decides to fail then it’s going to take 3 LEDs out with it. A halo ring gets its look from the full look of all the LEDs being illuminated. Who wants LEDs out in there headlights? Not only do unlit LEDs throw off the whole look of the vehicle, but it’s also a major hassle to fix. In order to fix this problem, one must reopen the lights and swap out the parts. What a hassle right? Sometimes this may even require you to remove your bumper or other car parts in order to fix.. Who wants to do all that? Not you. Well, here at Gold Standard Lighting we do things a little differently. Gold Standard Lighting Halo kits feature EXTERNAL resistors. We like to call them “Drivers.” These small driver boxes conveniently connect to the halo wires outside of the headlight with a simple male and female plug operation. Using this driver technology means that if any product failure were to occur, the issue could simply be fixed by changing out an external part under the hood. No bumper removal and no headlight reopen needed. Makes you wonder why it wasn’t done this way all along, right?

Are ColorFuse Halos high quality products? Are they reliable ?
Gold Standard Lighting ColorFuse Halos have a product failure below 1%. The mass majority of issues are caused by improper installation by the customer or failure of an external driver which can easy be replaced. The only time we see actual LED failure is if the halos are exposed to water, which is not an issue with the product, but with the installation.
How hard is it to install a halo kit ?
Installing a halo kit requires opening the headlights. There are many different ways to open different headlights, but the most popular way is to bake them in an oven. Some headlights cannot be baked open and instead must be cut open. Once open, the halos can be installed using many different methods. Some methods may include the use of adhesives such as epoxy, or silicone. Another way is by using beading wire to secure the halos to the headlights housing. Once the halo kit is installed, the lights can be resealed with all holes being secured. The most important thing is to guarantee a good seal to prevent any moisture or water from getting in.
What kind of warranty do I get with these ?
NONE, you’re on your own buddy!
...Just kidding. Your warranty covers product failure under normal operating conditions. Warranty does not cover malfunctions resulting from improper installation; such as water damage. If exposed to water, the LED halos can fail. If you have any problems with your product, simply contact us with a detailed explanation and we will tell you exactly what caused it.
Halo Problems ?
