Universal-fit mirrors clamp onto your factory side-view mirrors to extend your lines of sight while you're towing. The length of the bars can be adjusted to position each mirror closer to or farther from your vehicle. Sturdy steel construction.


Positionally, the mirror performs well. However, the tension brackets provide inadequate clamping strength. The mirror is essentially a sail that wind is pushing against as you drive down the road... constantly challenging the two lone clamps. You can only tighten the clamps so much before tension partially releases and you need to re-tighten. I lost one of these mirrors five minutes into my second 9 mile test drive on the freeway. I ended up employing a bungee/zip tie contraption as a safety net so I don't lose the other mirror. My vehicle is a 2014 Honda Odyssey.


I use these on a Ford Escape when towing my 13' camper. I will admit it took me a few tries to make sure they were tight enough to stay on but I figured it out. I make a point to check the knobs whenever I stop on my travels. After being on the road for a while my eyes adjust to just using the towing mirrors. I don't really notice much, if any, vibration from them. Glad I made the purchase.


these mirrors give me the extension I needed and the mirrors are very clear. So far, they are performing well and have not slipped and don't vibrate.

In the final analysis the mirrors failed to give the field of vision I felt I needed to safely operate the vehicle.
Jim H - 12/06/2022


I’ve had several different towing mirrors over the past several years. These are definitely the best. Easy to install and remove, and unlike those with straps, these stay in place even when towing on highways. Great mirrors with an excellent design.


Look and build of the product is fine / as expected. Unfortunately, I no longer have these as they both fell off my mirror when on the highway (recovered one and it fell off a second time). Possibly something to do with the mount and mirror configurations, but I tightened down the feet as hard as I could without cracking the plastic on the mirror.

Despite that, they still fell off and broke on the highway. I CANNOT recommend this product.

I am sorry that the mirrors did not work for you. I do not know that we currently list towing mirrors that would be a fit for a 2020 Kia Telluride.
-- Etrailer Expert Jenny N - 09/22/2022


I didn't like the mirrors and took them off. They didn't provide the look at the space behind my trailer that I wanted. There is no way to aim these mirrors so whatever you get when you strap them on is what you get to see. Also found that they didn't like up with the truck mirrors so the views were confusing.


Garbage, fell off first trip. Got replacement. Tighten down with wrench and fell off again.
Waste of money.
When one fell off, it punctured the trailer tire.
Most expensive one time use mirrors I have purchased.

I apologize that these mirrors have been giving you trouble. I have looked into these mirrors and found that because this has a universal design, these mirrors do require you checking them along your route at stops to ensure the clamps havent come too loose.
-- Etrailer Expert Katrina B - 08/10/2022


These mirrors are absolutely fantastic. If I could give them 10 stars I would. I never have to do any adjustment unless I accidentally bumped one. I just loosen them pull them off and lay them in the backseat of the truck. Reinstalling is absolutely simple and they hold on perfectly. I highly recommend this product

Unbelievably absolutely fantastic. Even when I take them off and put them back on over and over and over they are always in adjustment unless I somehow bump them. It’s just so nice when you install them and get inside you know they are adjusted just the way you left them. Excellent product

BEWARE they DO NOT fit a 2020 Highlander!!!! DO NOT BUY!!!!!

There are universal towing mirrors that will fit a variety of vehicles. We have tested the fit on a 2020 Toyota Highlander which you can see in the video link below.
-- Etrailer Expert Jenny N - 11/11/2022


Just didn't fit on our Mercedes Benz SUV. The metal around the side-view mirrors was too thick. Fell off on the highway 2nd trip despite getting them as tight as I could.

This mirror does not fit your 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLS-Class. We currently do not have a tow mirror that will fit.

2016 Toyota 4Runner

Worked as advertised. Haven’t had any issue securing them. I make sure I double check when I stop, but worked great with my 2016 Toyota 4Runner Limited towing my 22ft travel trailer.


The mirrors had a tendency to fall off my Honda passport 2020. Now I use a wireless back up camera turned on all the time as a rear view device. I don’t use the mirrors any more


Look good and very adjustable. However other reviews complained of mirror falling off. In past year, mirror fell off a few times. But I zip tie them to stock mirror and try to remember to check mounts when traveling. It appears wind and road vibration loosen mount screws and they hold on by about a quarter inch lip.

2021 Chevrolet Tahoe

Looks like a good idea but the clamps will not fit on the mirrors of my 2021 Tahoe. Also 1 came open, obviously returned by someone else, missing pieces and broken. etrailer took care of the problem (Returned) right away.


Great product! Easy to put on and easy to adjust for my truck. I’ve been using them for a year and have never experienced any issues with them staying on and tight. Would definitely recommend for someone that wants towing mirrors that can install/deinstall easily. I am driving a full size truck and towing an 8’ wide camper.


The drivers side mirror fell off within 5 miles of driving!

I am sorry to hear that the mirror came off while driving. I will have our customer service team reach out to you. I recommend taking a look at part # KS3891-2

as an alternative. They strap around the full back of the vehicle mirror for a secure fit.

2017 Toyota Tacoma

They were a waste of money. Quality is good for what they are. After following the instructions I took the vehicle out to work the next, and they both fell off. Now that may have to do with the mirrors on my truck having a curve to them not allowing them to grab fully. etrailer’s vehicle tool said they’d fit my 2017 Toyota Tacoma.


I liked the product. It served the purpose. One of the 2 clamps broke and I lost one of the towing mirrors.

I have a different set of mirrors that I recommend. They are a custom mirror for the 2020 Chevy Colorado and slide on to the existing mirror, part # LV97RR

Gregory - 08/03/2022

2020 Dodge Durango

Just so solid and exact compared to the rubber strap models I had been using, Take seconds to put on and off and usually stays at the right adjustment. Great Product


Best clamp-on mirrors I've had.


Better quality than I expected. Clamping system works well with my car (2011 Kia Soul). I can't say that it will work as well with other cars, gut if your mirrors have an overhang of about 1/2" above the mirror glass, then they should be fine. Make sure the car mirrors are adjusted before clamping these on as moving the mirrors after could compromise the clamp or damage the car mirror motors.


One mirror worked fine. The other plastic pieces could not be tightened enough and the mirror fell off. I ordered another to replace it. The clamps would not open wide enough to allow it to be attached to the mirror on the '21 Tahoe. The plastic pieces on the new one and the old one were not of the same thickness. The old one works. I use it. These need to be inspected after they are made to get consistency.

Usually when a mirror will not tighten, it is because it has been over-tightened before and the knob stripped. You can find a replacement knob assembly with item # CM11980C

Driver side mirror fell off on the first trip I took.

You mentioned that the drivers side mirror had fallen off and I have a few questions that I would like to ask. Do you still have the drivers side mirror? If yes, have you used them since? Would you be able to send a picture of them installed?
-- Etrailer Expert Jenny N - 09/21/2022


Mirror extensions. Very easy to put on. Fit like a glove and now I have great vision behind the trailer. Well worth the cost. Placed on Toyota Highlander 2018.

Only fair at best. One came off at freeway speed. The other needed a bungee cord to keep it from going out of position at freeway speed.

  • Will the CIPA Universal Fit Towing Mirror # CM11980 Fit a 2002 Ford Explorer
    The CIPA Universal Fit Towing Mirror # CM11980 is a universal tow mirror. We haven't had a chance to test fit it on a 2002 Ford Explorer as of yet, but I see no reason why they wouldn't fit. We have confirmed that this mirror fits over 100 different vehicles, 4 of which have been different model year Explorers (see linked videos). They will not affect any of the functions of your stock mirrors. If you were wanting to order 2 of them then we have those listed as part # CM11980-2.

  • What is Difference Between CIPA Towing Mirrors # CM11980 and # CM11980-2
    The difference between the two part numbers is the quantity of the mirror assemblies that comes with it. The part # CM11980 is the mirror sold individually whereas the # CM11980-2 is for a pair of them.

  • Can the Arm On the CIPA Universal Towing Mirrors Be Replaced
    It sounds like you may have the CIPA Universal Towing Mirrors part # CM11980-2. If that is the case then although they don't offer the replacement parts you need, you can purchase just one mirror instead of the entire set, the CIPA Universal Fit Towing Mirror part # CM11980.

  • Towing Mirror Compatibility with 2019 Buick Enclave
    For your 2019 Buick Enclave the towing mirrors have not been tested so I can't confirm the fit. However the CIPA Universal Towing Mirrors - Clamp On - Qty 2 # CM11980-2 works well with almost all vehicles we have tried. My favorite option is the CIPA Universal Dual Lens Towing Mirrors - Clip On - Qty 2 # 11953-2 because they fit on the factory housing and hold tight while allowing more viewing adjustment for best view. That is my recommendation for you. I've attached videos of both...

  • Tow Mirror Recommendation for 2014 Hyundai Tucson
    I looked up the mirrors your 2014 Hyundai Tucson has and since there's a gap between the glass piece and the housing that holds the mirror you could use a clip on style tow mirror like the CIPA Tow Mirror part # CM11980-2. This clips to the top of the mirror housing and holds a second mirror out further to the side to give you a wider viewing angle. I know it's a different generation but I attached a review video of this mirror on a 2016 Tucson for you to check out.

  • Tow Mirror Recommendation for 2017 GMC Sierra 1500 with Telescoping Mirrors
    As long as your mirrors don't have the chrome casing on them the best solution is the CIPA Towing Mirrors part # CM11980-2 which will clip to the top lip of your telescoping mirrors for a wider viewing angle. There are no slip-on style mirrors that fit the telescoping mirrors you have on your truck currently.

  • Best Towing Mirror Option for 2004 Toyota 4Runner SR5
    Since custom-fit towing mirrors are not available for your 2004 Toyota 4Runner SR5, the CIPA Universal Towing Mirrors # CM11980-2 are your best option because they clamp only on the top lip of your factory mirror, unlike other options that clamp both on the top and bottom lip of the factory mirror, limiting the height and width of the mirrors on which they can fit.

  • Is There a Speed Limit on the CIPA Universal Towing Mirrors
    No. The CIPA Universal Towing Mirrors # CM11980-2 do not have any type of restrictions in regards to speed and I think you'll find that they're quite stable when mounted correctly on your mirrors; these mirrors will hold up to highway speeds without any issues. I've linked one of our installation videos on a newer model Expedition for you to have a look at as well, so that you can see exactly how they attach to your truck.

  • Are There Slide-On Towing Mirrors for 2017 Nissan Titan
    There are currently no slide-on or slip-on towing mirrors for a 2017 Nissan Titan, and while I suppose anything's possible, there's no reason to think any will be added for this truck a number of years later. So if you need towing mirrors for yout Titan you'll have to go with clamp-on mirrors, and for that I highly recommend the CIPA Universal Towing Mirrors # CM11980-2.

  • Recommended Towing Mirrors for a 2020 Honda Ridgeline
    There are really only two types of towing mirror options for a 2020 Honda Ridgeline, clip-on and clamp-on. If you have already tried the clip-on then the next option you'll want to try is clamp-on, the CIPA Universal Towing Mirrors part # CM11980-2 which work well for most vehicles. That said, this is not really a popular tow vehicle so towing mirror options are limited. There are no custom fit options but I do think these will work well for this vehicle.

  • Recommended Towing Mirrors for a 2015 Cadillac Escalade
    I do have towing mirror options for a 2015 Cadillac Escalade but there are no custom fit or full replacement options. Therefore, you will be limited to universal mirrors such as the CIPA Universal Towing Mirrors part # CM11980-2 which are what recommend. These mirrors are very easy to install and take off and they provide a nice extended field of view. They will allow you to retain all of the factory mirror features.

I took a look at the housing and there appears to be plenty of lip for the mirror to attach to so you will not have any issues with compatibility. There are not any custom fit towing mirror available for the 2019 model as of July 2019 so a universal set like the above is your only option now.
