How to Install CIPA Clamp On Universal Fit Towing Mirror on a 2017 Acura MDX


Speaker 1: Today on our 2017 Acura MDX, we're gonna be doing a test fit on the Cipa Universal Bar Clamp-On Towing Mirror. It's available in a quantity of one with part number CM11980. You can also pick it up as a pair with part number CM11980-2. It offers us a wide field of view. It's gonna 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.

Now if I take a few steps in towards my trailer, as you can see there's no blind spot, by the way we have it set up, but right here's the view you get with just your factory mirror.Here you can see that the clamps are not gonna interfere with the operation or movement of our factory mirror, and we can even still fold it in. The mirror itself can be adjusted 360 degrees, so if you'd like to turn it to that horizontal position for a different view, you have that option. Now it can also be adjusted to most angles. We've got our up and down, diagonal, and side to side.By loosening up the large nut up top, it's gonna allow us to extend our mirror out to further suit our towing needs. Once we've got it placed, we can tighten it back up.

The knob just behind the mirror is gonna allow us to adjust it along the bar. Once we've got it set, just tighten it back up. Here on the backside, it doesn't use any straps to hold it in place. The nice thing about that is we don't have to worry about it coming in contact with the backside of our mirror and messing up the paint. It's also not gonna obstruct our turn signal.A couple great things about this towing mirror are, is for one it's for temporary use, so we can take it off when we're done towing.

Another great thing is, since it is universal, if we have any other trucks or SUVs in the household, it's probably gonna work with those too.Now we'll show you how easy it is to install. Before we put our mirror in place, we need to make sure that our clamps are opened up, so we can easily fit it between our housing and our mirror. So we can do that by adjusting the knobs, and making sure we have enough space here and here. Now I'm just gonna center it up with my mirror. We'll slide it on all the way.

I'll hold it in place and then I'll tighten up my knobs. It's that easy. With both clamps tightened up, we can adjust our mirror how we want, and we're ready to tow.And that's gonna complete our test fit on the Cipa Universal Bar Clamp On Towing Mirror, on our 2017 Acura MDX.
