How to Install a CIPA Dual-View Clip-on Towing Mirror on a 2019 Chevrolet Equinox


Today our 2019 Chevrolet Equinox, we're gonna be taking a look at and showing you how to install the Cipa Universal Clip On Towing Mirror. Now it is available as a single mirror and as a set. So here I am in the back of my trailer. Now you can clearly see me in the factory mirror, but the problem arises when I step away, you're gonna lose track of me. But that's where our towing mirror's gonna come into play. It's going to give us a much wider field of view and let's face it, when we're towing a trailer, the more we can see the better.

If we're going down the highway we wanna know if it's safe to change lanes or if we're pulling up to the camp ground, or even parking our trailer, our towing mirror's gonna give us that extra mirror so we get a wider view, so we can see what's going on behind us.Now you can see in our towing mirror here, it is gonna be a dual view mirror. The large mirror's gonna be a flat mirror, so it's gonna give us an accurate depiction of what's behind us, whereas the smaller one on the outside is gonna be a convex mirror which is gonna be more of a spot mirror. Now the way our mirror's gonna attach to our factory housing is we're gonna have these two arms. These little tabs that are gonna hold on to the housing itself. And then we'll have these straps that are gonna wrap from underneath and around and secure our mirror in place.Now the straps are rubber so we're not gonna to have to worry about any scratches or any kind of abrasions on our factory paint.

Now one thing a lot of people are concerned about when talking about universal mirror, is that it's gonna interfere with their factory mirror. But as you can see, I still have full range of motion to adjust my mirror, so I can get that perfect angle when I go down the road. And the factory turns, they go on the outside here, as well as the lane departure system still gonna work, so we're not gonna have to sacrifice any of the functions that we have on our Equinox. If we ever get in those close quarter situations, we're still able to fold our mirror in without having to remove the tow mirror.Now one of my favorite things about the mirror is the fact that it is universal. So if you have several different vehicles in your family that you tow with, chances are this might fit that one too.

But now that we've gone over some of the features and seen what our mirror looks like, let's show you how easy it is to get installed.To begin our installation, we're gonna want to open up the arms on our mirror and we'll come to the two knobs here and we're gonna loosen those up a little bit, so that the arms can slide and we're gonna extend them or make them shorter as we need. The four tabs here are gonna go in between our mirror housing and the mirror glass. We get the bottom one loosely in place, we'll rotate the top one, so we can get that in place. Then bring round the straps, or bring it round the back of the mirror and hook it right on top. I'm gonna go and tighten these up, the two knobs, so the arms won't move and get the other strap in place.Now if you need to adjust the strap, we can either lengthen it to make it looser or shorten it to make it tighter.

But now we just make any adjustments to our mirror and we're ready to hit the road.That'll finish off your look at the Cipa Universal Clip On Towing Mirror on our 2019 Chevrolet Equinox.
