Review of the CIPA Dual-View Clip-on Towing Mirror


Speaker 1: Today we're going to be taking a look at the CIPA clip-on universal dual lens towing mirror set, part number 11953-2. A towing mirror's going to greatly increase our field of view whenever we're towing a trailer or a camper. When we're going down the highway and go to change lanes, pass someone, or even back up and park our trailer, our towing mirror's going to make it a lot easier. Now, you can clearly see me in the factory mirror here, but as I step away you're going to lose track of me. That's where our towing mirror's going to come into play. You're still going to be able to see me farther out, knowing what's going on in the next lane, making it more safe for us to get down the road.A great thing about our mirror is the fact that it is universal, so it's going to be great for occasional towing and it's going to be extremely simple to put on or take off when we're not towing.

Since it is universal, if you have several different vehicles in your family that you tow with, chances are it might fit that as well.We're going to have a couple tabs here that are going to fit in between our mirror class, and the housing itself, and then as well as a couple straps that are going to wrap around our mirror to keep it nice and secure. The straps themselves are going to have these ribs in there that's going to catch on the buckle, which will make sure that they don't loosen up ever driving down the road. Now, each arm is going to have a pivot point here, as well as an extension point, and they're going to be able to accommodate mirrors ranging from 7 inches all the way up to 10 inches, so they're even going to fit some of those larger mirrors.Now, to make those adjustments we can simply just loosen up these two knobs here, and we'll be able to lengthen or shorten the arms to get that perfect fit around our mirror. Now the mirror itself it going to be about 7 inches wide by about 5 1/2 inches tall, and it is going to have a dual mirror set up. The large flat mirror is going to give us an accurate depiction of what's directly behind us, while the smaller mirror is going to be convexed.

So, it is going to be kind of shaped out a little bit, giving us more of a spot mirror, reducing some of the blind spots whenever we go to change lanes.Compared to other towing mirrors, I really like the fact that we're going to have the adjustable arms here that are going to adjust our arms wider to fit a lot of different mirrors, so we can get more of that custom fit, and that's going to be a lot more secure on our mirror. So, now with both of our mirrors installed, we can safely and confidently get down the road, knowing exactly what's going on around us and our trailer.That will finish up our look at the CIPA clip-on universal dual lens towing mirror set, part number 11953-2.
