The mirror is molded to perfectly match the contours of your factory side mirror. Simply slide the mirror over your side-view mirror and use the custom-formed, felt-covered wedge to hold the mirror in place. This wedge wraps around the inside edge of your OEM mirror and can be tightened onto the mirror with an easily accessible hand knob.

Video Transcript for CIPA Slip On Towing Mirrors Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the CIPA Custom Towing Mirrors for the Driver and Passenger Side, part number CM11400. Now, you can also pick up the driver side sold separately, part number CM11401, or you could pick up the passenger side separately, with part number CM11402. It all presents a wide field of view. It's going to allow us to safely and easily change lanes, pass, park or even back up while towing a trailer or camper. 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 as you can see there's no blind spot by the way we have it set up, but this is the view you'd get with just your factory mirror. With it installed it's going to give us a total length of 18 1/2 inches.

The mirror itself is about 6 inches tall by 4 1/4 inches wide. The housing is constructed out of a durable ABS plastic, so it's going to stand up to corrosion. The mirror itself can be adjusted to most angles. We've got our up and down, diagonal, and side to side. The housing on the bottom here and on the top is not going to interfere with the movement or operation of our factory mirror, and we can even still fold it in.

Here on the back side it's going to contour your factory mirror. It's really going to maintain that aerodynamic shape. Now, the kit does come in a quantity of two. It's a no drill installation. Now we'll go ahead and show you how easy it is to install. You want to be sure that your factory mirror is clean of any dirt or debris.

You also want to be sure the inside of your CIPA mirror is nice and clean. Now, before we slide it on I'd like to point out that it is going to cover up our turn signal, but it is going to improve our line of sight, which is what we want. We'll just line it up and then slide it on in place. Just like that. Now we can move on and grab our wedge. Now, the kit does come with two.

The thicker one is going to be for standard mirrors, which is what we have. The thinner one is going to be for, like chrome or capped mirrors. Once we've chosen our wedge we an then take the adhesive padding. We want to peel back the back side and put it in place like that. For demonstration purposes we won't be doing that, so let's go ahead and grab our hand knob and our thick wedge. What we want to do is take our wedge, we're going to turn it to this direction with the hole, and we're going to push it through the notched portion here. We want to line up that hole with the spot here. Then our hand knob is going to go through. Just go ahead and push all the way on until it kind of cups the back side of our factory mirror here. Then we can go ahead and get that started. The passenger side installs the exact same way. That's going to complete our look at the CIPA Custom Towing Mirrors for the Driver and Passenger Side, part number CM11400.

got the mirrors and tried the on our 2012 Dodge 1500 truck and they fit well there is a litle play on the outside ends up and down, don't know where or not this will effect the end use with vibration. if so i am going to put a little neoprem in and this should stop the vibration. the only reason i am not giving them an excellent is i won't have them on the truck in use for a couple of weeks at least. 82287

Overall these are nice mirrors and fit well on my Ram 1500. I am only rating two stars because the mounting screws and threads in the mirrors are not compatible and the lead threads on the screws galled during first install. This will require me to rethread the screws and holes before using the mirrors. It appears that the non threaded end of the screw is too large and damaged the threads in the mirror. I may even need to change to a metal screw to make them work. 643196

  • Towing Mirrors for 2019 Chevrolet Colorado
  • We do have towing mirrors you can use on your 2019 Colorado but the CIPA custom mirrors # CM11401 (driver side), # CM11402 (passenger side) and # CM11400 (set of both) fit only Ram trucks. For your Colorado we offer universal towing mirrors like the K-Source dual lens set # KS3990 and the similar single lens set # KS3891-2. Both are clip-on mirrors that use ratcheting straps to hold them securely on your OEM mirror housings. Both install without the need for any tools which you can see...

  • Tow Mirror Recommendation for 2013 Toyota 4Runner
  • While we have great towing mirror solutions for your 2013 Toyota 4Runner we don't have any custom slip-on style mirrors. Instead we have universal style mirrors that we know fit great and provide excellent visibility and stability on the road. For your vehicle I recommend the K-Source mirrors part # KS3990 because they install easily, provide a secure attachment point which means less movement and better visibility, and because they have dual mirrors on each side to give you the ability...

  • Towing Mirror Recommendation for 2018 Ford F-150
  • We do have a tow mirror that is designed to fit over the mirror you sent in a picture of on your 2018 Ford F-150 but it's not the CIPA you mentioned. Instead you'd want the K-Source Snap & Zap Custom Towing Mirrors # KS81850 which fit your mirrors and will work really well to provide a stable, wider viewing angle when towing. I attached a picture of the mirrors installed and a review video for more info as well.

  • Recommended Towing Mirrors for 2018 Toyota Highlander
  • The CIPA Custom Towing Mirror # CM11401 that you referenced is actually designed to fit certain model years of the Dodge Ram and will not fit your 2018 Toyota Highlander. There is not a similar custom slip-on (or snap-on) towing mirror available for your vehicle, most likely because of that unique profile design on its factory mirrors. With that being said we do have some universal options that will work great. I specifically recommend the K-Source # KS3990 because of its dual lens...

  • Recommended Slip-On Passenger Side Towing Mirror for 2016 Ram 1500
  • We do offer slip-on towing mirrors for your 2016 Ram 1500 and for just a passenger-side towing mirror I suggest CIPA mirror # CM11402. This is the match to the driver's side mirror item # CM11401 that you referenced. For a matching set of two you can order part # CM11400. These slip-on towing mirrors will fit manual, powered and heated OEM mirrors.

  • Tow Mirror Recommendation for 2019 Honda Ridgeline
  • I have a solution for you but there are no custom towing mirrors for the 2019 Honda Ridgeline like the CIPA set you mentioned. Your best option is a universal towing mirror set, # KS3990. They will fit most stock side mirrors that are 4-1/2" to 11-1/2" tall and that have a lip or gap between the mirror housing and glass. I checked our the mirrors of the Ridgeline and they'd fit well with this mirror. I have linked a video review of these mirrors for you.

As you can see by looking over the reviews, the # KS3891 is very highly rated by our customers. Unfortunately, none of our mirror vendors manufacturer a custom slip-on mirror that would...

  • Troubleshooting Install of Curt Brake Controller that Shuts Vehicle Off
  • There is most definitely a wiring issue for the brake controllers you've tried that are causing your issues. Check where you have the brake controller wired on your vehicle as most likely something is not ran properly. The red wire needs to be ran to a circuit that only sees 12 volts when the brakes are applied, the black to a 12 volt power source that is active all the time, the white to ground, and the blue back to the 7-way adapter. It's very possible the issue is you have two of the...
