Review of the K-Source Universal Dual Lens Towing Mirrors on a 2016 Ford F-150


Speaker 1: Today on our 2016 Ford F150 SuperCab, we're going to be doing a test fit on the K Source universal dual lens towing mirrors. They're sold in a pair, and they're clip on style. Part number KS3990. The K Source universal clip on towing mirrors are going to offer us a wide field of view. They're going to allow us to safely and easily change lanes, pass, park, or even back up while towing a trailer or a camper.As you can see, I'm visible in the towing mirror, but not the factory mirror. Between the two mirrors, the larger mirror is going to give us an accurate perspective of what's behind us, while the smaller mirror acts as a spot mirror.

It's going to increase safety when changing lanes. If I walk in towards my trailer, as you can see, there's no blind spot by the way we have it set up. This is the view you get with just your factory mirror.Both mirrors are going to be adjustable to most angles. We've got our up and down, diagonal, and side to side. The smaller mirror's also a convex mirror, which means it curves slightly outward, so it's going to be more efficient, and it's going to increase safety when towing.

The four clips are not going to interfere with the operation or movement of our factory mirror, and we can even still fold it in.Here on the back side, two ratchet straps hold it in place around the factory mirror. They're nice and secure. As you can see with them in place, I'm able to move the whole mirror, and it's not going to come off. Compared to other towing mirrors that just use rubber straps on the back side, the ratchet straps are going to provide a lot more of a tighter fit. They feature large rubber padding to prevent any scratches or abrasions to your factory mirror.

They're made out of a high quality, durable plastic, so they're not going to rust or corrode. And they're going to stand up to the elements for a long time.A few great things about having universal towing mirrors are . is for one, they're for temporary use, so you can take them off when you're done towing. Another great thing is they're completely universal, so if you have any other trucks or SUVs in the household, it may work with those as well. They're sold in a pair, so not only are you going to get a wider view on your driver's side, you're going to get one on your passenger side, too.The mirror's dimensions are 7 and a half inches wide by 5 and 1/8th of an inch tall.

Now, the towing mirrors are designed to work with mirror sizes between 4 and a half inches and 11 and a half inches tall, and it does that by its adjustability. Here, you can see how the arm rotates and pivots to accommodate those mirrors. The clips have a unique design so that when they're tightened, they're going to draw in. So you'll get a nice, secure fit around your housing.Now, we'll take a closer look at the ratchet strap. It has two parts to it. The top portion of the strap is going to be that ratchet style, so you can get a nice, secure fit. The bottom is rubberized, so it can stretch out around those larger mirrors. Here underneath, you can see that the padding is soft, and it's going to contour most mirrors.Now, we'll show you how to put it on. So you'll first want to make sure that each one of your clips are loosened up so we can easily fit it in place. Then, I'm going to turn it back over and set it in place. Now, I'm just going to center it up with my mirror, but you want to make sure that each one of those clips sits on the inside of the housing. Once you've got it in place, you can hold it in place and run your straps on the back side.So here on the back side, we want to make sure that that padding is going to contour the back of the mirror, so we'll put it on in this direction. We'll take that top portion of the strap. We're going to hook it right on top, where it connects with the clip. Underneath, we'll do the same thing. Then, we'll come up to our ratchet. We'll lift up the cover and begin ratcheting it down until we get a nice, secure fit. Then, we can just simply repeat the same process with our second strap.Once you're done towing, it's easy to take off. Underneath your cover, press in on the two buttons, and then you can easily take it off. And that's going to complete our test fit on the K Source universal dual lens towing mirrors, part number KS3990 on our 2016 Ford F150 SuperCab.
