Custom-Fit Towing Mirror

Easily extend your field of vision and reduce blind spots with this CIPA slip-on towing mirror. By adding it to your OEM side-view mirror, you can see beyond the end of your trailer. This will allow you to safely and easily change lanes, pass, and park with a trailer in tow.

The mirror is molded to perfectly match the contours of your factory side mirror. Simply slide the mirror over your side-view mirror and use the custom-formed, felt-covered wedge to hold the mirror in place. This wedge wraps around the inside edge of your OEM mirror and can be tightened onto the mirror with an easily accessible hand knob.

The mirror also lets you retain use of the features on your factory mirror. Cutouts in the towing mirrors line up with the turn signal, puddle lamp, LED spotlight, and BSDS camera on your factory mirror. The add-on mirror will not obstruct the factory mirror face, and they will not interfere with adjustments to your factory mirror.

2018 Ford F-150

I'm so impressed at the quality of these mirrors (I bought both driver and passenger sides) especially at such a reasonable cost. Very simple but effective solution for me. It took about 3 minutes to install these as they fit and slide right over my existing mirrors. They were designed precisely for my vehicle so don't interfere with my power adjustments or signal lights. I'm new at pulling a large Camping trailer and needed to find something to get my field of view around both sides. Factory mirrors and such were too expensive for my budget and I don't believe they would help anymore than these.


They worked great for 1200 miles until one came lose and fell off! Needless to say the trailer finished it off. The plastic set screws must come lose because I tightened them up good


The slide on mirrors worked very well and save me a bunch of money vs. replacing the OEM mirrors.


Never buy from etailer, return policy is excessive, unfair and not as good as others in the RV world. Mirrors are. I better than stock F-150 Mirrors. They cost $[XX] bucks each. Etailer takes $[XX]. off of the $[XX] it was easier to just throw them away.


They fit perfect. Haven't towed with them yet but can already tell I'll be able to see my camper much better when making turns and backing up.

2020 Ford F-150

Putting on is a peace of cake. Should have ordered the set,but I can wait for passenger side to come.


Does not fit my 2021 honda ridgeline.enlosed paper work indicates a Ford f150.


I will have our Customer Service team reach out to you. This mirror fits the 2015 - 2020 Ford 150. The mirrors that will fit a 2021 Honda Ridgeline is part # KS3990
K-Source Universal Dual Lens Towing Mirrors - Clip On - Pair
-- Etrailer Expert Jenny N - 03/08/2022


Add on towing mirrors are often flimsy and subject to vibration.
Some propeller head(engineer), somewhere, really did a great job!
The design is simple and the new mirror's grip,
on the foundation mirror, is firm. Bravo!


Did not help with vison from stock mirr ors.

You mentioned that the mirror did not help with towing. I wanted to see if you could explain in more detail?
-- Etrailer Expert Jenny N - 04/07/2022
The factory mirrors seem to be all I need, for sure on the drivers side very little improvement on the passenger side.
-- comment by: Scott - 04/07/2022

2020 Ford F-150

Very fast delivery.


You sent us the wrong model the first time and we didn’t have time before our trip to exchange them so we ordered the correct ones and never returned the first set. We have that set in the box. We do like the correct set!


The corner of one box was crumpled, but there was no damage to the product. They fit as advertised! I’ve already referred you to several of my friends!


So far so good. Haven't really used them yet. Will update once I take my first trip with them


Mirror is small.


Item arrived as advertised. Fit perfectly onto our truck mirrors. Tried them out on a windy and hot drive. Held in place without getting loose.


Looks so much better than the mirrors with the arms and straps. It adds to the field of view and adds a safety factor but the Ford stock mirrors provide an adequate view on a 10’ wide trailer These allow puddle and turn signal lights to work as designed. Oddly, it’s cheaper to purchase separately vs. as a set.


It was the wrong one so it sits in a box never used

I wanted to reach out to you in regards to your review on the towing mirror. You mentioned that it was the incorrect mirror and I am happy to see if we have the one that you need. What is the year, make, and model of your truck?
-- Etrailer Expert Jenny N - 12/15/2021

2018 Ford F-150

Great fit and look for my 2018 F-150, they are as close to factory style and design that I have seen. They slip in place easily and also come off without any problem. I ordered the left and right mirrors separately because they cost less than the pair on the website.

2016 Ford F-150

Prior to finding CIPA mirrors, I’d tried at least 4 types of mirrors. None worked, as I needed. Wobbles & wiggles blurred everything, wiggles loose, or just didn’t work.

CIPA designed a great system. However, one had loosened & fell off. Never thought I’d find JUST ONE replacement, but pulled thru. Who woulda thunk?

Thanks for your quick delivery & follow up with all the info I needed to make this a great purchase.


Very pleased with quality of the tow mirrors and how quick they were shipped


Just got a pair for my 2018 Ford Raptor. Fits like a glove! Have not gone done the highway yet, but seems very secure because of the formed fit. Looks factory too. This should really help with the blind spots while towing my camper.

Just used them the other day and still like new. If something happened to them, I would purchase again without hesitation.
Bob G - 03/22/2020


Great mirrors, they look like original equipment. I use these mirrors to tow our 30’ camper which we use at least 10 times a year. We also did a trip out west which included driving 6,800 miles. Love these mirrors.


easy to install, great extension.

2017 Ford F-150

Received Excellent service & excellent product
put both mirrors on my ford 2017 F150 lariat this afternoon seem to fit real well
will be trying them on my flagstaff ultralight 34 foot travel trailer this coming Sunday, June 25 leaving for Minnesota from South Texas

2015 Ford F-150

It was easy to install. The quality is good and has all the features needed for towing a travel trailer. I would recommend it over the strap on type which I have and broke after a few times of use and trying to make adjustments.

    For your 2021 Chevy Colorado we only have universal style tow mirrors that fit like the K-Source part # KS3990 but we do not have any custom fit mirrors. I attached a review video for this mirror on a similar Colorado for you to check out though.

    There are some great options available for towing mirrors for your 2008 Ford F-150 STX, but the CIPA Customer Towing Mirror # CM11551 does not fit your vehicle. Unfortunately, there aren't any custom-fit towing mirrors for your STX model. Instead, I recommend the CIPA Universal Fit Towing Mirror # 40375.

  • Are the CIPA Towing Mirrors Removable After They've Been Installed
    Yes. The CIPA # CM11551 is a slip on towing mirror that can be removed and re-installed as necessary. A lot of folks don't want the extended mirrors on when they don't need them, so all you would need to do is loosen the knob on the back and slide them off when you're done with your towing trip. This is a single driver's side mirror and is designed to fit on a variety of Ford trucks. If you've got a Chevy Silverado like was indicated in your vehicle information, the correct slip on mirrors...

Another reason I recommend these is that they pivot 360 degrees to give you the view you need at all times.

We don't carry any custom mirrors for your Jeep but the K-Source universal mirrors, part # KS3990, are a likely fit. Make sure your stock mirrors are 4-1/2 to 11-1/2 inches tall.
