How to Install the CIPA Towing Mirror on a 2012 GMC Acadia

Speaker 1: Today, on our 2012 GMC Acadia, we're gonna be taking a look at and I'm gonna show you how to install the CIPA Universal Fit Dual-View Towing Mirror, part number 11953.Here at the back of the trailer, you can see you have plenty of visibility in your factory mirror, but if I step outside you lose that visibility in your factory mirror but gain it in your towing mirror. Now this is gonna help you when parking, passing, and changing lanes on multiple lane highways.This is what our mirror looks like when it's installed. Now it's gonna give you two mirrors. Both of them are fully adjustable; up, down, and side to side. It's gonna help maximize your view, it'll customize it, if you will. It's gonna be constructed of a durable plastic that's gonna withstand all kinds of weather.It's also gonna come with two fully adjustable straps that are going to be constructed of a rubber to not harm the finish of your factory housing.

One thing I like about these universal towing mirrors is that if you tow with multiple vehicles these can be used on those vehicles. However, keep in mind the two arms that attach to your mirror housing will only extend or stretch to a size of a 10-inch mirror.One thing that may be a little bit of a concern here is if you notice where this clips on to your factory housing, it kind of comes up over the mirror. So that could affect how much adjustment you have on your mirror. Also, if you have automatic folding mirrors this inside corner will make a little bit of contact right here on this rubber edge.Now that we've gone over some of the features, let's show you how to get it installed. You're gonna have two tabs on the top, two tabs on the bottom.

These are gonna fit between the mirror and the mirror housing.You're simply gonna take your strap, pull it over the top. You're gonna hook it right on this top clip, just like that.And that will do it for a look at the CIPA Universal Fit Dual-View Towing Mirror, part number 11953 on our 2012 GMC Acadia.
