How to Install the CIPA Dual-View Clip-On Towing Mirror on a 2017 Chevrolet Tahoe


Speaker 1: Today on our 2017 Chevrolet Tahoe we're going to be doing a test fit on the CIPA Universal Fit Dual-View Towing Mirror, Part Number 11953. It offers us 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 a small camper. As you can see, I'm visible in the towing mirror but not the factory mirror. Between both mirrors, the larger and the smaller one, you get the same view, just a closer, more clearer view in the larger one.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 get with just your factory mirror. The mirrors themselves can be adjusted to most angle.

Here you can see on the smaller mirror, I've got it up and down and side to side. With the larger mirror, we've got it up and down, side to side, and diagonal.Here you can see how the clips are connected to the inside of our housing. Now it does make contact with our factory mirror. We're still able to rotate it and position it how we want. Once it's set, it should not be a problem.One of the best features is that we can still fold the mirror in for storage.

It uses two adjustable rubber straps to secure it in place. The nice thing about them being rubber is you don't have to worry about them harming or scratching the finish of your mirror.Underneath we still have use of our puddle lamp. The straps do not cover it up. A few great things about this universal towing mirror are for one it's for temporary use and you can take it off when you're done towing. Another great thing is that since it is universal, it may fit some other vehicles in your household.Now that we've gone over the features, I'll go ahead and show you how to get it installed.

I'm here on the passenger side of my Tahoe. Before we set it in place, let's go ahead and loosen up the two knobs on the back side. By doing this, it's going to allow us to adjust our arms outward so we can correctly fit it around our mirror. So with them loosened up, we'll bring it up in position, and we can adjust it as needed to where it properly fits.Once we've got it where we want it, we can hold it in place and then tighten our knobs. As you can see, we only had some minor adjustment there, but the mirror fits straight on our factory mirror.

Now we can run our straps.Now it's a good idea to have a little bit of tension on the straps already. That way, when you stretch it out and connect it to our hook it holds the mirror in place. Then we can adjust it how we want it, and then repeat the same process with our second strap. Now if we want to adjust the tension on our strap we can guide the strap through, pull it out through the other side, and then finally run it to hold it in place.That's going to complete our testing on the CIPA Universal Fit Dual-View Towing Mirror, Part Number 11953, on our 2017 Chevrolet Tahoe.
