Review of the CIPA Slip On Custom Towing Mirrors


Today we're going to be taking a look at the CIPA Custom Towing Mirrors for the driver and passenger side, part number CM11550. The driver side is available separately with part number CM11551, and the passenger side is available separately as well, and that's part number CM11552. They're great for backing up to your camper or trailer and also while towing. These towing mirrors are a custom fit and they're designed specifically to work with your Ford F150. They simply slip over your factory mirror and the one piece design helps maintain that factory look. They have accommodations here for your turn signals if you have that option, and down here we have that cut out for our puddle lights. Again if you have that option. 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 camper. As you can see I'm visible in the towing mirror but not the factory mirror. If I take a few steps in towards my trailers you can see there's no blind spot by the way we have it set up. This is the view you'd get with just your factory mirror. The mirror itself can be adjusted to most angles just like our factory mirror. We've got our up and down, diagonal, and side to side.

It measures about five inches tall and four inches wide, giving us a total of 14 inches. With the way it clips on it's not going to interfere with the movement or operation of our factory mirror, and we can even still fold it in. It's made out of a durable ABS plastic that won't rust or corrode, and it has a scratch resistant mirror. Here on the backside you can see it has an aerodynamic shape. That's going to help with wind noise and vibration. You'll also get one for the passenger side.

It's an easy tool for installation. We'll go ahead and show you that now. Now this is very, very simple to do. I'm here on the driver's side, take the driver's side mirror, and I'm just going to slip it on in place. Now we want to make sure it's all the way slid on as far it will go, then we can take our plastic shim. Please note the rubber adhesive pad is included, but for demonstration purposes we won't be putting that on our shim, but that's where it goes.

We're going to take that and we're going to slide it into the notched portion all the way on until it makes contact with the mirror. Then we'll take our hand knob and then just tighten that down. Get that nice and snug, there's no reason to over-tighten, you can see how it's nice and tight. We're ready to tow. It's not coming off. That's going to complete our look at the CIPA Custom Towing Mirror for the driver and passenger side. Part number CM11550.
