Video Transcript for CIPA Clamp On Universal Fit Towing Mirror Installation - 2016 Toyota Tacoma

Today on our 2016 Toyota Tacoma we'll be doing a test fit on the CIPA Universal Bar Clamp On Towing Mirror, that's part number CM11980. It offers us a wide field of view, it's going to allow us to safely change lanes, pass, park, or even back up while towing a trailer. As you can see I'm visible in the towing mirror, but not the factory mirror. If I take a few steps in towards my trailer this is the view you'd get with just your factory mirror. The mirror can be rotated 360 degrees and can be adjusted to most angles. We've got our left and right, up and down, and even diagonal.

By loosening up the large nut up top here we can extend our mirror out to better suite our towing needs. Once we have it set, you just tighten it up. By loosening up the knob here we can adjust our mirror anywhere along the bar we like. Once we've got it set we just tighten it down. If we'd like to have it up, move it up slightly and just tighten it up. You can see how it's not going to interfere with our factory mirror.

We've still got plenty of movement and we can even still fold it in. On the backside here you can see it doesn't use any straps to secure it to the factory mirror. Just two clamps up top. It comes in a quantity of one, so if you'd like to pick up one for the passenger side just use the same part number. Now let's show you how easy it is to get installed. I'm here on the driver side of my Toyota Tacoma and to begin our test fit let's go ahead and turn our mirror over.

We need to make sure that our clamps here are loosened up, that way we can easily fit it around our housing. We can do that by simply just loosening up the knobs until we have enough space between the rubber padding here and the bottom portion of the clamp. Once we have enough room we can turn it back over and clip it in place. I'm just going to have it centered up with my mirror here. You want to make sure it goes between the mirror and the housing.

Get it in position and then I'm just going to slide it on. I'm going to make sure it's slid all the way on, and then we can tighten it down. Then we can just our mirror however we want and we're ready to tow. That's going to complete our test fit on the CIPA Universal Bar Towing Mirror, part number CM11980 on our 2016 Toyota Tacoma.

The first one fell off within 2 miles. The second made it about 20. Save you money and upgrade the mirrors themselves. 571524

Very adjustable, fit on my 2001 Ford F-150 Supercrew. Now can see side of camper and cars behind. Stayed on for a month including trip. After 3weeks they rattled off. They need a little pad screwed onto the mirror surround. Maybe double sided tape. Great product bounced down the street at 55 mph. I recovered both mirror with not even a scratch on them 436286


Comments
I put these on again, used these for a few months going from Florida to RI and got so used to them I never took them off, even when not towing. One day one fell off in the street at 50mph. Got two scratches on it and I put it back on. I suggest a sticky pad where it clamps on your plastic mirror housing. I would recommend this product for the F150 2001 supercrew without hesitating. Great product!

Mirrors appear to be exactly what I was looking for. All the others I tried didn't extend far enough to give a comfortable view or what was behind us. I am hooked up and will be traveling with them tomorrow, so we'll see then. 305302

The mirrors arrived yesterday and I had them on my truck in 10 min. I drive a Nissan Frontier and our camper trailer was just too wide---I could not clearly see the traffic that was coming up from behind. These mirrors are golden. Completely adjustable and they fit securely and they are snug on my mirrors. I would recommend these mirrors without hesitation. 249730

Overall happy with these tow mirrors. They mount to the bottom of our 2016 Toyota Highlander mirrors and they give a good view of our oversized popup camper. They do shake a bit in the wind but they are easy to install and have never came loose. They only problem I had once was a gust of wind which caused the Toyota's mirror to fold with it attached. Since there is no custom mirror for our vehicle, they are the next best thing. They have lots of adjustability. 326962

Better quality than I expected for the price. They fit and have a large range of adjustment. The only surprise is that they are convex, I had not picked up on that from the description. If you want/need flat mirrors these are not what you want. As long as you buy a pair your rear view will be the same on both sides and it should not be an issue. 432243


Comments
These are keepers. They go on and off in seconds after the first fit. They dont vibrate and they hold their adjustment. Great product.

Wow! Great mirrors. I used one for each of the mirrors on my 04 Ford Expedition. These mirrors are made of top quality materials, with quality manufacturing. They work like a dream. Little to no vibration even at freeway speeds 55-60. Once adjusted, and secured, no movement. Thank you CIPA! 254287

Perfect! Best mirrors for my 04 Expedition

The product was just as advertised. Fits great on our truck. Haven't used it yet on a trip, won't be going anywhere soon but am sure it will be fine. The shipping took quite a few days, a bit of a long time. Liked the instruction videos too. 387530

Used the mirrors last week on our Lexus GX460. I tightened them down very tight based on past reviews and didn’t have any problem. They were very stable, didn’t slip and gave fantastic adjustment and visibility. They are very well built and have rubber coated pads on the clamps so they don’t damage the paint on the vehicle mirrors. Once they are set they go back onto the vehicle with ease. Great product!! etrailer contact was great! They let me know when the order was shipped, gave me the tracking info and followed up. Best on line buying experience I have ever had. I am a customer for life. Same experience with the back up camera we just received. etrailer is 2 for 2!!! 445952


Comments
The mirrors work great! No issues at all. We tow with a Lexus GX460 and we had some concerns of damage to our vehicle side mirrors. We are happy to report that the trailer mirrors work perfect and we have never had any damage and we have never lost a mirror.

Extended mirrors arrived in a timely fashion (day earlier than expected). Concerned at first from the smashed, partially opened condition of the outer shipping box (USPS must have crushed it in shipping). Interior two boxes, with mirrors, were unscathed! Mirrors are real impressive......Very well engineered, and manufactured out of solid, but light material. Directions, and a single allen wrench tool to make minor adjustments to already assembled mirrors were a real plus to attaching mirrors to Toyota tacoma. Skookum attachment with no worries of damaging finish of vehicle's mirror with the design of this extender mirror. Once in place, the mirror has unlimited adjustment positions to give you the proper visual prospective down the side of towed trailer. This is the real Mccoy! Haven't yet had it out on the road up to highway speeds, but from what I see so far, there should be no problem. 389968

My order arrived yesterday. Looked both mirror extensions over very carefully. These items are well made. Installed them on my 2016 GMC Canyon SLT crew cab truck and adjusted them for use with my travel trailer. They work great and as advertised. Fully adjustable to meet any requirement anyone would have regarding fit and adjustability. A big plus for me was the fact that they can be adjusted to fit the needs of anyone with almost any type of vehicle. This is a good product at a fair price and I highly recommend it. 345571

This is my response to your request. Yes I did purchase the 2 mirrors for towing purposes. They worked perfectly in town at lower speeds. However, when I went on my first highway trip at 65-75 mph speed one fell off. Approximately 1 hour later I removed the 2nd mirror because it was about ready to fall off. Now, I am not a rookie when it comes to towing or hooking up towing mirrors. For the past 25 years I snowmobile traveling 400-500 miles a trip pulling a covered trailer on most of those trips. The mirrors seemingly could not handle the intense force of air (maybe cold air specifically) against them just by the two top of the mirror brackets. Also, I contacted (via e-mail) your company requesting the possibility of purchasing an additional bracket because I broke one. Received no response. I concluded that this style of towing mirror, is not equipped to handle my towing needs. Subsequent to these mirrors I have purchased a set of mirrors that attach at the top and bottom of my SUV mirror and they work great. 477700

Excellent product. Easy to put on. Took them off, put them in my camper storage. Next trip out, when I put them on, I did not even need to adjust them! The mirrors are slight contour and slight magnification, which makes them easy to see. There is virtually NO vibration during travel. (I have had others that shimmied so bad you could not see a thing.) I flip my driver side mirror in frequently to check my mail box, so it is not very stiff. So I ran a small bungee from the clamp to the grill under my hood. Did this for both sides. My driver side flipped in when traveling at interstate speeds, so I put a second bungee on it. Fixed the problem. Allen bolts at top of clamp are rusting after 2nd use. All in all though, I am very pleased with this product and it is well worth the money spent. It is the only product I could find to properly fit my 2011 Toyota Tacoma, because it clamps on the mirror frame and does not rest on my truck mirrors. Great Product! 516262

Used these for a year, and camping about 10 times during that year, all over the state and they still work and look great! I highly recommend this product!

On 2 separate occasions one of the mirrors came off in transit even though I had tightened the screws as tight as I could. Fortunately I was able to retrieve them both times. One of the times was on a busy interstate highway. Trying to get them tighter the screws started pulling through the plastic clamp. I purchased longer screws and washers to go all the way through the bracket to get them tight enough. That has worked well even at highway speeds into the wind. 500881

This is the only mirror I could find that extended out far enough to see sides of trailer and traffic behind. One mirror fell off, but I think something hit it because the vehicle mirror was folded flat. I don't like the convex mirror, wish they offered it in flat. I reworked a flat, clamp on mirror to extend farther and use that instead of this. Still give 4 stars due to easy mount and adjustablity. 293450

Just received my extension mirror today. Had to reverse the “hand” of it to the left drivers side, as it came that way, but it was simple. After reading other reviews I chose to buy a third clamp to add to the bar and insure its stability, as some had issues with it getting loose in transit. It’s now set to the position I’ll need when we take our new Travel trailer out on the road in a few weeks. So far I’m thinking it’s the perfect replacement to the suction cup style I had tried that bounced and shimmied and made it strange to view traffic behind me. This new etrailer extension mirror clamped tight and feels very firm on the body of my 2014 F-150. We’ll see how it goes but my guess is it’s going to be what I hoped for. Price is right IMO, if it holds securely to the vehicle mirror. I really don’t expect it to loosen. 556372


Comments
Working out perfectly. One clamp broke from just a bit to much tightening, so I ordered 2 more. One to replace the broken 3rd clamp I prefer to use, and a spare in case it happens again. This mirror has been exactly what I expected and holds steady during highway speeds of up to 70 mph. Don’t need to go any faster pulling a trailer.

Disappointed in these, especially given all the glowing reviews. If you're interested in looking at the road surface or the sky then these mirrors will be great for you, but if you want them to stay adjusted to where you originally pointed them then find another mirror. I found that even using a wrench to tighten the adjuster in an attempt to keep them in position, it simply wasn't enough. The mirrors will clamp to the factory mirrors just fine - the problem is with the arm adjuster and ball adjuster on the back of these mirrors themselves. They simply don't tighten enough to stay in place at speeds above 40mph - they twist from wind. I might just try tightening them to where they will strip/break - no reason not to risk it as they are useless otherwise. 395833

I received the mirror. It looks like a good solid peoduct But i did not realize from the website it was not sold in pairs. That was not clear to me Now i will have to order a second one and pay shipping again. Im not real happy 427654

I bought a 3rd tow mirror to replace one that fell off during our travels. That particular mirror kept sagging from the fixed position, so needed a lot of retightening. After one adjustment, I suddenly noticed it was missing! Simply slid off. (The driver's side mirror had NO problem with sagging, and didn't come off. (After the loss, I did keep checking the tightness every time I was out of the vehicle!) Aside from the loss, I am VERY happy with the mirrors. They function exactly as I had hoped. I found that the passenger-side mirror is not really missed on the Toyota Tundra. 379293


Comments
My experience with the CIPA mirrors has been spotty. The products are great, work really well, to a point. First, I lost one on the road, by not tightening it enough. I found that with my rig, a 26 pull-behind, the right -side mirror does little good. So most of my April 2017 trip was made with only the left side. I reordered a new mirror, and when installing them for my April 2018 trip, I OVER TIGHTENED the right side one, and broke one of the mounting clips. So again, I travelled with only the left side mirror. And again I ordered a new one. I am disappointed that CIPA does not make available the mounting clips for this unit. I now have a complete mirror unit except for one missing clip! I noticed that CIPA offers replacement parts for other units.

The mirrors were very east to install, only took a couple of minutes. They made my visibility when pulling our trailer excellent. They didn't hold up very well. The driver side mirror blew off, ( after about 25 miles), when a semi truck from the other direction went by. The buffeting from the truck dislodged it in an instant and it was lost on the highway. I then took the passenger side mirror and installed it on the drivers side, not wanting the same thing to happen again I made sure the attachment clamps were tight, and I guess too tight as the clamp that holds it to the mirror frame broke. I will be needing to replace both of these mirrors but won't be purchasing this style again. 414947

These mirrors are awesome! We bought these for our 2015 Toyota Tundra that we use to pull our 16ft Airstream trailer. We have been traveling for years and didn’t know what we were missing! We bought one for each side, and they were very easy to attach and are so versatile! They are very steady in the wind as well. I would recommend checking the clamps as you go, they loosened up a little. I highly recommend these mirrors! 449502


Comments
Not well...they seemed good at first, but while traveling on a 2 lane road with oncoming semi trucks they blew off and broke. We were disappointed because we liked the better vision. We have gone with another brand that has stronger clamps and have attached a safety strap just in case.

  • Wiring Harness Recommendation for Installing Hayes Brake Controller in 2014 GMC Sierra 1500

This would plug in on your truck in place of the wiring harness you have found.
