How to Install the CIPA Dual-View Clip-on Towing Mirror on a 2016 Toyota Tacoma


Today on our 2016 Toyota Tacoma we'll be doing a test fit on the CIPA dual-view clip-on towing mirror, part number 11953. It's going to allow us to safely and easily change lanes, pass, park, or even back up while towing a trailer. As you can see, I'm showing up in a towing mirror, but not the factory mirror. Between the larger and the smaller mirror, you get the same view just with the larger mirror you get a slightly clearer, closer view. If I take a few steps in towards my trailer, this is the view you'd get with just your factory mirror. Both the larger and the smaller mirror can be adjusted to most angles. We've got our up and down, left and right, and even diagonal.

You can see that each one of the four tabs is not going to interfere with the movement of our factory mirror and we can even still fold it in. Here on the backside you can see how two rubber straps hold the mirror in place on the factory mirror. They're going to help absorb road shock and vibration while we're on the road. Now the mirror does come in a quantity of one, so if you'd like to pick up one for the passenger side, just use the same part number. Let's go ahead and show you how easy it is to get installed. To begin our test fit, let's go ahead and turn our mirror over and then turn our attention to the two knobs here.

We'll just loosen those up. By doing so it's going to allow us to extend our arms out so we can easily fit around our mirror. We're just going to center it up with the mirror here. You want to make sure that all of the tabs clip onto the housing. Then we come around to the back side and then tighten up our knobs.

Make sure the mirror is still in place, and then we can run our straps. Now, it's a good idea to have a little bit of tension on here already that way we can easily clip it on and it'll hold it in place for us. We'll come up and over and clip it on top like so. We can adjust it as needed once we've got it in place. Then we can just repeat the same process with the other strap. Now, if we need to tighten or loosen it we can guide it up through and pull it down through the other side.

Now we're ready to tow. It's that easy. That's going to complete our test fit on the CIPA dual-view clip-on towing mirror. That's part number 11953 on our 2016 Toyota Tacoma.
