Simply slide the mirrors over your side-view mirrors and use the custom-formed, felt-covered wedges to hold the mirrors in place. Each wedge wraps around the inside edge of your OEM mirror and can be tightened onto the mirror with an easily accessible hand knob.

Today we're going to review Part #CM11800, these are the CIPA Custom Towing Mirrors. They are a slip-on design. This part number does come with the drivers side which is Part #11801. It comes with the passenger side which is Part #11802. These are a custom fit design. They are designed to fit the Ford F-150 Model Truck in the crew cab, a regular cab, a super cab or a super crew cab starting in the model year 2004. I do recommend to go to the product page on our website for this part number and at the bottom of the page it'll show you the exact years and models of the Ford's it will fit on. It usually will even show a picture of the style of mirror it's designed to fit on. These towing mirrors will slip over your factory side view mirrors to extend your line of sight.
This allows you to safely and easily change lanes, to pass and to even help park while you're towing a trailer. They do have a manually adjustable mirror face which will let you customize your view. They are a aerodynamic shape and a very tight fit that'll prevent vibration and wind noise. These slip on mirrors will maintain the aerodynamics of your factory mirrors. These parts are used to install it. They use felt covered wedge locks to securely hold these slip-on mirrors in place. Again, they are custom designed to fit your vehicle.
The add on towing mirrors will not obstruct your factory mirrors and it will not interfere with adjustments to your factory mirrors. These parts here what are used to install it. There's no tools required. It's a tool-free installation. The parts are made of an ABS and polypropylene plastic and they do have some nice illustrated instructions which are included. That does come in handy because if you notice there's two different wedges, then the piece of felt and then the threaded thumb wheel. Basically, you only use one wedge per mirror, but the reason they give you two is it depends on the year of your vehicle.
In other words, this wedge here would fit the 2008 on up and this one here is designed for the earlier 2004 to 2007 models. Again, your instructions will show you which years these fit so you can decide which one to use correctly. The mirror housing itself is a durable ABS plastic, has a scratch resistant mirror face and again, this part number will include both the driver side and the passenger side. I do just want to give you some overall dimensions on each mirror. They are the same overall length from edge to edge, it's going to be right at about 18 inches. The mirror face themselves is going to be right at 4 inches wide and about 6 and 1/2 inches tall. Just to show you basically how these would install, what you want to do is this would be the driver side mirror.
You'll also notice it does have the cutouts for the turn signals that would be on your factory mirrors, so it'll still show the turn signals through there. What you want to do is start with, they have a piece of felt here with a sticky back on it. Pick your correct wedge for your year and model vehicle and then you would just attached the wedge to this. inaudible 00:03:23 the felt to this wedge. The reason you're going to do that is when you put this wedge in here, this felt part here is going to rub up against your factory mirror, so this will protect it and keep the slip-on mirror from scratching or damaging the factory mirror. You just put that felt on there to help protect it. Once that's all installed, what you want to do is slide your mirror on and you'll notice this section right here, this is where the wedge, once your mirrors on, there'll be an opening right here and you'll slide your wedge in that opening. On the back of the wedge, there'll be a little cup, hole type thing there, and that'll line up with the hole here on the back of the mirror. That's where your thumb wheel will go. Basically what you'll do is slide this wedge, after you put the felt on it, into place to where this hole and the hole on the back of the wedge would line up. Then you'll take your thumb wheel, it's threaded, go ahead and thread that in. When you thread that in, what it's going to do is with this on the factory mirror, it'll push this wedge out and help give you a nice tight, secure fit so there's no movement of the slip-on mirrors on your vehicle. It also includes the parts for the other mirror, everything will be included. That should do it for the review on Part #CM11800 the CIPA Custom Towing Mirrors, slip-on design in the driver side and the passenger side. .
Average Customer Rating: 4.8 out of 5 stars (70 Customer Reviews)Durable mirrors slide over the driver's-side and passenger's-side mirrors on your vehicle to extend your line of sight while you're towing. Felt-covered wedge locks securely fasten the slip-on mirrors in place. Tool-free installation.
I was really impressed with how easy it was to order these!! Judy was very helpful on the phone and made sure that these would fit my truck. Tracking them was also nice because there was a map that showed exactly where they were at all times!! They arrived very quickly and were packaged securely... When we got them it was so easy to install them that we were done within minutes!!! We were so happy with how great they looked and couldn't believe how easy it was!!! Before we ordered these we were gonna order mirrors from ford and have them installed but they would have been $500, and they were permanent, whereas these are easily removed and only a fraction of the price. Thank you etrailer for making fast and easy for us!!!!! 49881

Ordered the two mirrors for my F150. Arrived in a timely manner and very easy to install. I've had them on for a month and they remain firmly attached with no adjustments needed to the fit. The tricky part is adjusting the right mirror. Suggest getting two other folks to help, one to adjust the mirror and the other to stand slightly to the right of the RV. Then while you sit in the driver's seat coach the adjustor for the perfect view. Takes a little getting use to the double view in the mirrors, but quickly adjusts with experience. Great value for the money. 71386

Read other reviews that were positive so I orderedtheseand they fit on good and easy to install in minutes. Used them for the time today with our 27 foot trailer. I could easily see down both sides of the trailer. Easy to slip off when not pulling the trailer. And most of all, I keep my power fold option. Would recommend as an alternative to buying a new set of telescopics for $ 300.00 to $600. 102686

I had essentially the same mirrors for my 2004 F150 and had been completely satisfied. I purchased this set for my 2010 Lariat. Had the small portion that slides into the grove at the back to secure this mirror to the truck mirror been available for purchase I would have bought those instead as that would have made my old mirrors compatible with the new truck. I am completely satisfied with this product and recommend it highly. I will give the old mirrors to my son for use on his 2007 F150. 54417

I occasionally tow an enclosed trailer. The large OEM mirrors provide excellent views along the trailer sides. These slip-ons provide additional viewing beyond the rear of the trailer and allow the vehicle following the trailer to be viewed. Wonderful product that takes less than a minute to install on each mirror. Great quality and the mirror maintains its position well. Excellent price/performance ratio! 153625
Mirrors arrived promptly and easy to install. There was no vibration while moving but found the mirrors very difficult to adjust. Really were little help due to inability as view was either too high, low, inside or outside. After numerous attempts to adjust vision just used factory mirrors to judge traffic, backing up trailer. We would not purchase again. 157923

Product arrived quickly and in perfect shape. The instructions made the mirrors easy to install. The one on the right didn't adjust as high as I might like, but I can see down both sides of a 34' trailer. I'll have more feedback after I use them next weekend on the first trip, nearly 1400 miles. 156962
These mirrors are exactly what I needed. After installation, they look like factory installed mirrors. They install in about 3 minutes, and that's if you read the instuctions for two of the minutes. I didn't realize it, but, they are adjustable also. 117985
They fit my truck like a glove install was very easy took only a couple of minutes.Ordering was simple and they were delivered in 4 business days. I am very happy with the way the order process went and have put your web site in my favorites. 76969
