Video Transcript for CIPA Clamp on Universal Fit Towing Mirror Review

Speaker 1: Today we are going to be taking a look at the CIPA Universal Towing Mirror. This is going to be a clamp on style, and they do come in a pair. It's going to be part number CM11980-2.Our towing mirror is going to give us a wider field of view whenever we're towing a trailer or a camper. Now, you can clearly see me in the factory mirror right now, but if I step away, you're going to lose track of me, but that's where our towing mirror is going to come into play. It's going to give us a wider field of view, making it a lot safer for us to get down the road, change lanes or park our camper.The great thing about these is that they are universal. So, if you have several different vehicles that you tow with in your family, chances are this might fit that as well, and they're extremely quick and easy to remove and put on so whenever we're done towing, we can simply loosen up the clamps and remove our mirror.Now, one of the really nice features about this mirror is that we come to this knob right here.

We can loosen it up and we're able to extend our mirror out all the way to 17 1/2 inches so we're going to have a lot of adjustability to either stick our mirror out farther to see our trailer.The mirror itself is going to be five and a half inches by eight and a half inches, and the glass is a convex glass so it's going to give us a much wider view while reducing blind spots.On the back of our mirror, we're going to have a ball and socket so it's going to be able to have a true 360 degree rotation. So, we're going to be able to move the mirror in a tall angle or we can turn it to the side for a wide angle while still being able to adjust it to get that perfect view when we're going down the road.Now, compared to other towing mirrors on the market, these are not going to use those straps that typically go around the mirror. Now, the big benefit of that is is that we're not going to block any kind of turn signal that we may have in our mirror or any puddle lamps since there's not going to be anything below or on the back of our mirror here. It's simply going to clamp on right on the top. However, our clamp on mirror is going to be just as secure as the ones with the strap because it's going to clamp directly onto the mirror housing.So, now that the mirrors are on both sides of our truck, we can easily get down the road with confidence, knowing what's going on around us and our trailer, and that will finish up your look at the CIPA Clamp On Universal Towing Mirror Set, part number CM11980-2..

After buying a different set of merriors that were held in place by rubber straps I would say not to waste your time or money on them. These mirriors clamp onto the trucks mirrors and are verry secure. They extend out far enough to easly see past the camper. My truck is a mid size, and the camper is quite a bit wider than the truck. I highly recommend these mirror extensions. 706796

The product seems to be good for what I need it for after assembly. What bothers me is the ordering format. When ordering, I had the option of 1 or 2. So not being smart enough to know that 1 means 2 mirrors. So now I have 2 extra mirrors. 693579


Comments

These mirrors are sold in a quantity of 2, as indicated in the Tile an also in the spec of this product description.

Works well on the right side of my vehicle. But the mirrors on my SUV are the type that can fold in. When a truck passes going the opposite direction on a two lane highway, the clip-on mirror catches enough wind to fold in the regular mirror. 635442

just what I was looking for ! I have a 2017 titan xd pro 4x and you absolutely have to have these to pull a 8.5 ft. wide camper or snowmobile trailer like I have. Because the stock titan xd mirrors wont pull out far enough. Nissan blew it on Mirrors but love the truck ! These mirrors are alot more rugged than I thought they would be, and the way they attach is perfect . Thanks etrailer 617893



- CM11980-2
by:

This is a great product however, you really have to clamp these things to your car mirror very tight so it won't blow off or slide. One of the mirror clams actually broke when I was re-tightening it. Sent the broken part back to eTrailer and got a replacement promptly! Way to go eTrailer.com! 546128

This is a mixed review. Ordering from erailer was easy and pleasant. Delivery was fast and free, and packaging was excellent. We waited to take off on our 10-day camping trip for it, and it was delivered when we were told it would arrive. We clamped the mirrors on following the directions exactly. We paid close attention to other reviews to clamp them very tight - but not TOO tight as to break the plastic pieces. We had them perfectly adjusted for seeing behind our 19' long trailer and took off. We were so pleased! We then took off down the freeway driving at about 65 mph. Within 30 minutes we had a super SHOCK! The driver side mirror broke away with a loud snap!! By the time we were able to pull off and run back to get it, it had been run over and destroyed. Since the mirrors are interchangeable, we put the passenger side mirror on the driver side and continued on. We didn't encounter any other problems, but now we are down to one mirror. I am very disappointed with the mirror breaking off as we really did our best to make sure the mirror was on very tight. This was an expensive loss. 671857

I have a Subaru Outback and pull an Aliner. I was unable to see around the Aliner . I just got back from a camping trip from middle Georgia to the Ocala area in Florida. My mirrors work GREAT. I love them. I feel more secure with the mirrors. They are back in their boxes, labeled for drivers side or passenger side, and ready for the next camping trip. 608380

I purchased the universal bar towing mirror for my 2017 Honda Pilot. The clamps do not fit on the passenger side mirror. The vehicle's power mirror must be raised to nearly its highest position for there to be enough gap between the glass mirror and its housing. Of course that renders the vehicle's mirror useless. I gave the item 3 stars because of it's good quality. 672982

I have a Traverse, and the slopping shape of the mirror has made it difficult to find tow mirrors that work. These are fantastic! The mount securely to the lip of the mirror and stay in place. There is very little vibration, and I am able to see what I need to when towing my trailer. Thanks eTrailer.com! 508349


Comments

Still Going Strong minus Operator Error. Due to not tightening one of the mirrors enough, it flew off on the road when a semi passed me going to opposite direction. I ordered the replacement mirror and proceeded to overtighten it, breaking the bracket. Replacement parts are on order. Overall a good product, just make sure they are tight, but not too tight.

these mirrors at best are just ok, I plan to keep and use them but the overall quality is not what I expected. Hard to stay in adjustment, quiet a bit of vibration and the allen head screws have already rusted after 10 days of use. would not purchase this particular product again. I have made several purchases from etrailer and have been overall pleased with previous ones, but not this particular mirror 514203

These were installed on a 2017 4Runner. If you're having trouble with these side mirrors, you're doing something wrong. These are the best universal mirrors I've found. I had the ones with the bands and didn't fit all too well. You can tell these are good quality when you pull them out of the box. Fully adjustable so you shouldn't have any trouble fitting these on any car. 682994

Very good quality mirror except for the clamp design. Lost one mirror on the highway after it came loose while driving. Took great care to make sure truck mirror and add on mirrors were adjusted properly and that clamping surfaces were clean, dry and secure. 729373

These mirrors have been fitted to a 2014 VW Tiguan, pulling a Taxa Cricket trailer. I have had to modify the rubber pads on the mirror clamp by cutting each pad almost in half (see photo) to accommodate the car mirror design (see photo). I will glue the pads to the clamp to keep them from getting lost. The mirrors will do the job for which they were purchased. I have not yet driven at speed, but I do not anticipate any problems. The mirrors are securely attached. 724673

I told a 7 foot wide travel trailer behind my Ford Explorer It needs extended mirrors to tow properly and I tried a different style first. Those just didn’t work satisfactorily for a year and I gave up on them. When I found these at etrailer and watched their video on them, I was impressed and ordered them. I’ve used them once and I am even more impressed. They attached very firmly with no wiggle or shake, and they’re adjustable in many ways. They are the answer to my problem. Looks like a great product. 720783

by:

I read the reviews prior to purchasing the mirrors and I'm glad I did. I bought a couple of bungee cords to secure the mirrors tightly to prevent them from being blown off or, vibrated off while traveling as the screw fasteners can't grip securely enough...if they would be included by the mfg., I believe the mirrors would rate 5-stars. Despite this, the mirrors are a great product overall. 710740

I just received my mirrors yesterday. I put them on the truck right away and just backed up to the trailer for a look at how they will work. I won't be hauling the camper for about a month, but I am happy that I can see down both sides of camper without a problem. Looking forward to my next trip with these mirrors now that I will be able to see traffic coming along beside me. Thanks for a great product. Mike 703239

  • Choosing Between the CIPA and K-Source Universal Towing Mirrors for a 2008 Ford Expedition
  • Although I have not heard of the CIPA Universal Fit Towing Mirror CIPA Universal Towing Mirrors part # CM11980-2 blowing off when attached properly I can say that the K-Source Universal Towing Mirrors part # KS3891-2 are a much more secure option. The reason for this is that they have two large straps which go around the whole backside of the mirror as opposed to using clamps on the top lip.

You need about a 1 inch gap between the top of the mirror face in between the black plastic housing for these to work.

These are really nice mirrors that will just clamp to the factory mirror housings...

  • Will CIPA Towing Mirrors # CM11980-2 Allow Factory Mirrors to Still Adjust
  • Your factory mirrors will still be able to adjust with the CIPA Towing Mirrors part # CM11980-2 installed. There would be enough room between the housing and the glass for it to work like normal.

  • Tow Mirror Recommendation for 2006 GMC Canyon
  • The CIPA tow mirrors part # CM11980-2 are a confirmed fit for your 2006 GMC Canyon and would be a good option. They clip to the top of the mirror housing and will give you a wider view behind you. I attached a review video for these for you to check out too.

  • Towing Mirror Recommendation for 2018 Nissan Titan
  • We have universal style towing mirrors that we know fit your 2018 Nissan Titan well but the CIPA custom fit ones you mentioned are not a fit. Instead we have the CIPA Universal Towing Mirrors # CM11980-2 that easily attach to the top lip of your mirror housing for an easy and secure install. I attached a review video for these mirrors that shows them installed and used on a similar 2017 Nissan Titan as well.

  • Recommended Towing Mirrors for 2011 Honda Odyssey
  • The K-Source Universal Towing Mirror # KS3891 referenced in your question features a universal design that may fit your 2011 Honda Odyssey. We have found that depending on your specific model, there are a couple possible factory mirror designs on the Odyssey. If the factory mirrors on your vehicle look like the one in the attached picture (aerodynamic angles instead of square/flat on the back) then the towing mirror will NOT fit. If your mirrors do feature a square/flat back then the mirror...

  • Towing Mirrors for 2017 Honda Pilot with Cameras in OEM Mirrors
  • The rear/side-view camera built into the mirror housing on the 2017 Honda Pilot will not make for an ideal fit for a universal clip-on towing mirror like the K-Source # KS3990 since the lower attachment arm is likely to at least partially block the camera's view. A solution for adding towing mirrors that will not take away the benefit of this OEM camera system is the CIPA Universal Towing Mirror Set # CM11980-2. These attach only at the tops of the mirror housings, as shown in the linked...

  • Tow Mirror Solution for 2019 Ford Expedition XLT with Folding Mirrors
  • For your 2019 Ford Expedition with folding mirrors we have towing mirrors that will work great like the CIPA part # CM11980-2 which will allow the mirrors to still fold but we do not have a slip on style for your vehicle at this time. I attached a picture that shows what these mirrors look like installed on a similar Expedition as well as a review video for you to check out too.

  • Recommended Towing Mirrors for a 2011 Dodge Nitro
  • I do have towing mirror options for you but they do not offer any custom fit mirrors for your 2011 Dodge Nitro therefore the CIPA Custom Towing Mirrors part # CM11550 (Ford F-150) will not work. The best option you have is a universal fit option like the K-Source Universal Towing Mirrors part # KS3891-2 or the CIPA Universal Towing Mirrors part # CM11980-2. The CIPA and K-Source options both perform really well though they might not look as good as a custom fit mirror. The K-Source...

  • Recommended Universal Towing Mirrors for 2011 Jeep Wrangler
  • The CIPA Universal Fit Towing Mirror - Clamp On - Adjustable Length - Steel # CM11980-2 will have some minimal movement with the wind and road conditions. We have had many people very happy with these mirrors, while others have not been a fan with a few mirrors lost along the way. Because it is a universal design, these mirrors do require you checking them along your route at stops to ensure the clamps haven't come too loose. My recommendation is to instead us the K-Source Universal...

  • Recommended Towing Mirrors for a 2008 Mercedes-Benz ML350 With Auto Fold Feature
  • The K-Source Universal Towing Mirrors part # KS3891-2 work with an abundance of factory side mirrors and they are the only option for some vehicle's. I do think they will fit the factory side mirrors on your 2008 Mercedes-Benz ML350 however, because they are not flush to the side mirrors there is a chance they will make contact with the vehicle as they will sit closer while folded in. You may be able to turn the auto-fold side mirror feature off on your dash but if not see below. For...

  • Recommended Towing Mirrors for a 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee
  • For your 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee, I recommend the CIPA Universal Towing Mirrors part # CM11980-2 or the K-Source Universal Towing Mirrors part # KS3891-2. The CIPA Custom Towing Mirror part # CM11401 will not fit nor do they offer a set of custom fit towing mirrors for your Grand Cherokee which is why you will have to go with a universal option like the above. The CIPA Universal Towing Mirrors and the K-Source Universal Towing Mirrors are the two most popular options for your Grand...

  • Tow Mirror Solution for 2005 Chevy Silverado 3500 with Telescoping Mirrors
  • We do have a tow mirror solution that will fit your 2005 Chevy Silverado 3500 that has the telescoping mirrors but none of the custom fit options we carry like the # KS80800 work with the telescoping setup you have. So the best option is the CIPA tow mirrors part # CM11980-2 which clip to the top of the mirror housing and provide you with a wider view behind you when towing. I attached a review video for this for you to check out as well.
