How to Install CIPA Custom Towing Mirrors on a 2007 Chevrolet Suburban


Today on our 2007 Chevrolet Suburban we've got the set of CIPA Custom Towing Mirrors. We're going to be installing them in real time for you today so you can exactly how long it will take you to get them out of the box, onto the car, and get you heading down the road. These mirrors are designed to extend your line of site to make for easier towing, whether it's a boat, your camper, a standard trailer. It's going to help you change lanes easier, help you park easier - just make your life overall a little bit easier when you're towing. Let's go ahead and take these out of the box. I'll show you exactly what they're going to show up at your door with. Open the box; ta da, there is a mirror in here.

Lay that mirror out. Also with the mirror you've got illustrated, detailed instructions, and a hardware kit. In our hardware kit we've got two pieces of foam, we've got a black set screw, and a black wedge. The first, the longer piece of foam, is designed to fit right inside the mirror here where it says foam tape. You lay it right over the top inside the lines.

As you do that you'll pull off the tape on the back and place it on there. You want to roll it over that edge. Rolling it over that edge is going to give it a really nice biting surface on the back of your mirror that helps hold it in place. Second piece of foam: it goes on the wedge. You're going to place it on the wedge again by removing the tape on the back. Place it on the wedge and again, this helps to grip the mirror, helps to hold it in place in your car.

For our installation purposes today we're not going to be putting that on, but I wanted to give you a real good idea of where that belongs. The mirror as well as hardware are made of a very durable black ABS plastic molded perfectly to fit around the factory mirror. We've got a good aerodynamic finish; helps to reduce any wind noise or vibration. The mirror itself is manually adjustable. As you can see, it's easy to adjust but it's not loose so it's not going to wiggle around or rattle and you're not going to lose your positioning. It's also a scratch resistant face so you're going to get years of good use out of it. Now that we've gone over the details, let's get it on the car.

Installation is very simple. We're basically going to take our mirror, place it on the end, and we're going to slide it right down into position. We're then going to take our wedge. We want what I would call the backside of the wedge to be facing us; it's got the dimple in the back. We'll bring it down here. We're going to slide that in, take our set screw, and screw it right down in there. As you can see, it kind of positioned our mirror; that set screw's going into that wedge, and it's going to bite down on there. You'll feel it when you're done it just comes to a nice, pretty firm stopping point right there. You'll know it; you'll see the difference; you'll feel the difference, and there's no need to any further than that. As you can see, our factory mirror we're still going to have our electric adjustment. We're still going to have our blinker exposed. All we've done is make our life a little bit easier by adding an extra wide line of sight. All right, driver side's on; let's get it out of the way. We'll open our box up. We'll take out this one as well. We're going to have the same stuff. We've got our instructions. We've got our hardware kit. Again, we're not applying the foam pads today. We'll take our wedge, take our set screw, and our mirror. Come on with me around to the passenger side here and let's get this on there. Again, it's very simple. Slide it right over your existing factory mirror, take the wedge . There's a groove in here that you'll want to have your wedge slide into and you'll feel it; it won't go in if it's not in the right position. We'll just slide that in until you feel it stop. When you feel it stop, that means it's made it up against your factory mirror. We're going to run that set screw right on down. Again, tighten until you feel that positive lockout; right there it's perfect. Good firm stop; I know that's where I need to end. That's it, guys. We'll take them out and let you see what they look like going through our slalom course, our alternating bumps, and our straight bumps. That will complete today's test fit of the CIPA Custom Towing Mirrors, part number CM10900, on our 2007 Chevrolet Suburban. .
