Video Transcript for CIPA Custom Towing Mirrors - Clip-On Mirror - 40375 Review

Today we are going to show you part number 40375, from CIPA, the Universal Strap on Towing Mirror. This easily installed universal towing mirror will mount to any mirror with its conforming rubber knobs and securing clamps this mirror will attach easily to any mirror you have on your vehicle. The total length of the mirror is 18 inches and the mirror itself is 5x5-3/4 inches. Before we can install this mirror there is a little bit of prep we have to do. First make sure the mirror itself on your vehicle is nice and clean, you do not want to trap any dust or dirt between the pads and the mirror and ruin the finish on your vehicle. First off what we need to do is install these pads, and they are just self adhesive. While we are on the subject with these knobs, we will show you how adjustable they are. The knobs actually spin up and down so you can raise the height of them. This knob here will actually spin back down to lock it into place. That way it will help conform to the curvature of your mirror.

Also these are clamps right here that actually will clamp onto the mirror itself. The edge will go here and push this flap down and it will secure it into place. Let us go ahead and install this on our vehicle. We will need to do a couple of test fits by pushing it against your original mirror and just see if you need to adjust these feet or not. It looks like we are just going to leave it all the way down and go from there and see how it works. We need to loosen our straps up next and I will show you how to do that. To loosen these straps up, we have to pull the knob straight out, then you can pull them out and get your slack. At this point we can go ahead and take these clips and install them on the mirror. Push down a little bit and pull them in. We will do the same thing on the bottom. Once you have them clipped in, make sure you center it the way you want it, then push that back knob back in. Now we can go ahead and tighten that knob up. You might want to wiggle it every now and then just to make sure you take up some slack too.

Give it a few tugs to make sure, re-inspect your feet and, it looks like here, this one actually pulled away. So we need to undo it and redo the feet because you want to have all of these connecting to the mirror. Spin that out and there you have it and it is really not going to go anywhere. Also you notice there are a couple of extra hooks and an extra pad that came with it. These are in case you mess one up or lose it and the hooks are for different style mirrors, some mirrors have casings that are thicker than some others, so that way it helps out for different vehicles, makes it more universal. Another nice note about this is it actually has an air vent on the side which helps cut down on wind resistance and probably less wind vibration too. There you have it for part # 40375 from CIPA, the universal strap on towing mirror.

great mirrors, they look good too!! People who have a problem with them not staying put, you just have to really crank them down. 6040

Saw a few tacoma guys using these exact mirrors got some for when I pull my camper. They're excellent as described and are quality. 290446



- 40375
by:

Worked ok on my Toyota Tacoma but are utterly useless on my Chevy Tahoe. They slide all around even with the straps ratcheted down as tight as possible. The other issue is that they are very difficult to remove once ratcheted down like this. I almost snapped the mirror on my truck trying to remove them. Would recommend only for someone that has smaller and very sturdy mirrors. They will leave marks on the mirror unless some electrical tape is applied under clip. 23653

Bought these for my Dodge Durango and they are terrible. They wouldn't stay tight to the mirror and kept falling off no matter how tight I put them. Plus they didn't stick out far enough to give a good view down the camper. 32696

Could not adjust mirror inward to even see my trailer. The big kicker was the clips that hold it on the mirrors of my tacoma chipped the chrome off. That really sucked! 19756

Product order and shipment were same day! Excellent fit, no vibrations, and no noise! Thank-you leo 28792

There are a lot of mirrors out there that are ill fitting which result in poor performance (shaking, rattling, poor adjustment and even falling off the vehicle). I have found this mirror to be the best for my vehicle. It secures to the mirror extremely well, holds true for great visibility, made very well and has multiple adjustment points to fix the mirror right where you want it. The design of this mirror makes it easily adjustable to fit just about any mirror out there. I am extremely happy with this mirror and would highly recommend it. 7678

Does not stay put I also have had to put up with the *reed* whistle, annoying but tolerable (will try twisting the strap next use). You do have to exercise caution when attaching to vehicle mirror. The clip hooks can interfere with the vehicle mirror adjustment. I also found that no matter what I tried, with all 3 feet firmly on the back of my mirror and the straps as tight as possible the mirrors would gradually move around to the point they were unusable. (Lexus RX350 SUV) speeds 60 to 70 MPH 3372



- 40375
by:

The mirrors provide excellent view of the trailer being towed. That being said they produce a humming sound from the wind. They also tend to slide down gradually as you drive because the gripper pads do not stay adhered to the feet. They seem to work well for short trips. Anything over an hour and you will need to pull over to adjust them. 35522

Unhappy with the way this mirror mounts to our 2003 Ford van. It will not stay tight. Many hours of pulling over,and ajusting. I belive e-trailer should suggest a different alturnative to the CTM2500 custom mirror. I will be returning them this week, Thankyou,Gil Ruehmeier 53069


Comments

Check out the CIPA 7070 or the K-Source KS3891. They are universal fit mirrors that attach a bit differently.

CIPA - universal mirrors Despite claims - any distance off paved roads and even on rough pavement, the mirros move out of position and are thus useless. The idea is great, but appears they were not sufficiently tested in less than perfect conditions. Specifically, we have a 2005 Dodge Duranco and the adjustable legs simply do not adjust adequately to the mirror to keep them in place and in line, no matter how well tightened. On perfect smooth road they are fine, but as soon as there is even minor roughness they shift out of line. 483



- 40375
by:

OK, difficult to install We used these on our '02 Durango. They worked OK, but were hard to install without messing up the regular mirror angle. They do make a reed vibration, but if you twist the strap and connect, it prevents that. That is an old truckers trick to prevent vibrations of tie down straps. 763



- 40375
by:

Pretty good After trying numerous towing mirrors, these are by far the best for the money. They shake slightly, but nowhere near enough to affect vision. What makes these great is you can adjust the mirror lense without adjusting the entire housing (like a factory mirror). I bought two. On one of them, the adjuster knob seems a little flimsy. The other is solid. 2492

All was excellent. 633755

The strap works fine and is holding up. There is a big problem with the three mounting pads. The stick-on pads included in the kit don't stick on only for a short time. Without them the device will slip. Do you have a better stick-on pad. f not, please send me some of the others. 582458

Terrible! They sent me two different mirrors. One had a stronger magnifying mirror than the other. Lots of vibrations. Don’t waste your time or money on this product. I tossed them both. 488103

Got this one for the right side. Been using one in the left for a while. Long as they mate to your mirrors they are great. Pretty universal but still might not work on some mirrors. Very good product for a very reasonable price. 411625

I could not get the mirrors adjusted for them to be any help whatsoever. I went back on line to try to view the "how to use" video again, but now I do not even find the product on your web site. 66298

Great looking product, provides the side vision I needed on my Tacoma. 60518

I have not used the mirrors yet, however, after mounting them they seem a bit loose. Probably just me and I hope to update/upgrade this rating after their use. 58480

I ordered a pair of these for my 2005 Dodge Durango and they work very good. These are a great solution for tow vehicles that dont have factory tow mirrors 50173

Basic product seems good. The suction pads could be a bit better- my MBZ. mirrors are very roundy at the outer edge, and the devise is a bit tricky to tighten enough to seat all 3 pads. Haven't driven with them yet, but hoping they stay put! 11696

by:

Attractive styling & good fit Verry happy with this product. 1954



- 40375
by:

Droops like crazy No problems with noise for me- but the way these mirrors mount is not secure. It relies on tension in the strap to hold its three legs against the tow vehicle's mirror. Unfortunately, most of the mirror's weight is outboard of those three legs, and the thing droops like crazy. We will be supplementing the mounting system with a bungee or two. 1056

Noisey In centain wind conditions. Usually right angles to the wind, the straps vibrate resulting in loud reed sound. 121

Review from a similar CIPA Universal Strap-On in Custom Towing Mirrors


The instructions leave something to be desired and the pictures are too small to actually see much be the mirrors were easy to install. Having different clips to choose from made all of the difference. I haven't driven over 50 mph with them yet but they seem stable. They do generate some wind noise, which I think is to be expected and hope that it is not significantly louder at higher speeds. I have an enclosed car hauler that is rather wide, as well as a travel trailer and I think these will do the trick, making it much safer when towing. 595931

Review from a similar CIPA Universal Strap-On in Custom Towing Mirrors


As per my previous experiences with etrailer, I received fast and dependable service. The mirrors look to be very sturdy and do not block the mirrors they are attached to. The CIPA mirrors look like they should work well with my 2018 Tacoma. I had to modify the mounting application slightly. The kit with additional grasping hooks and the instructions failed to show how to use those hooks and neither did the videos. Because the tacoma mirror housing leaves little room for the CIPA hooks that came attached to the CIPA mirrors, I reversed them and they now seem to be secure. There was no way the original set up would work trying to grasp the Tacoma mirrors. So I am headed out tonight without the trailer to see how they work. Looking forward to the increased visibility. 643237

Review from a similar CIPA Universal Strap-On in Custom Towing Mirrors


Mounted easily on my stock 2008 Dodge Nitro mirrors. Tight and secure fit. I ran a few hundred miles of freeway with no noise and no vibrations that would take them out of adjustment. About three miles on a dirt road they started to move some. I found that I was able to secure them with an additional click on the tension knob. So, after a few hundred freeway and about a hundred miles on rough dirt roads, I am deeply satisfied with my investment. 542160

  • Comparing K-Source KS3891 and Cipa 40375 Universal Fit Towing Mirrors on 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee
  • Both mirrors would work on your Grand Cherokee, but I always recommend the K-Source # KS3891 over the Cipa 11960 (which is our part # 40375) because of the way the mirrors attach to the vehicle's factory mirrors. The K-Source mirror uses 2 ratcheting rubber straps for a tight fit that's allows minimal vibration. Combine this with the mirror's light weight, the mirror is not going to move around, it'll stay where you put it. This is why our customers rate this mirror so highly. The Cipa...

  • Will CIPA Custom Towing Mirrors Work With 2007 Dodge Ram 3500?
  • The CIPA Custom Towing Mirrors, # CM10700, that you referenced will not fit the extendable mirrors on your 2007 Dodge Ram 3500. Your best option is likely going to be a universal fit towing mirror, such as the K-Source Universal Dual Lens - Pair, # KS3990. These are adjustable and use a ratcheting system to tighten over your existing mirror, as long as those mirrors are between 4-1/2 inches and 11-1/2 inches tall.

I instead would recommend the part # KS3891 for your vehicle.
