How to Install the CIPA Clip-on Towing Mirror on a 2017 Buick Envision


Speaker 1: Today on our 2017 Buick Envision we're going to be doing a test fit on the CIPA clip on towing mirror, part number 7070. 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 small trailer or a 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 this is the view you get with just your factory mirror.The mirror itself can be rotated 360 degrees, so if you'd like you can keep it in that horizontal position for a different view. Now it can also be adjusted to most angles.

We've got our up and down, diagonal, and side to side. Here you can see that our four clips are not going to interfere with the operation or movement of our factory mirror, and we can even still fold it in. Here on the backside it uses two adjustable rubber straps to hold it in place around the factory mirror. The nice thing about them being rubber is you don't have to worry about them harming the finish of our mirror. Down here you can see they only obstruct a small portion of our turn signal, so we still got use of that.Now a few great things about this towing mirror are for one it's for temporary use, so you can take it off when you're done towing.

Another great thing is it's universal, so if you have any other trucks or SUVs in the household it may work with those as well. Now the mirror does come in a quantity of one, so if you'd like to pick one up for the passenger side just use the same part number. Now we'll show you how easy it is to install.We need to make sure that our four clips with the lip on it clips onto the inside of the housing. Let's turn it over, open up the arms, and set it in place. Now I'm just going to center it up.

Once it's in position we can hold it in place with one hand and then run our straps on the other side. Now when we run our straps it's a good idea to make sure there's a little bit of tension on them already, that way when we clip it in place it holds the mirror in place. It looks like we got enough there so let's stretch it out above and then clip it in place. Then I can adjust it how I want, and then we can just repeat the same process with our second strap.Now if we want to tighten it or loosen it we can just guide the strap up through and pull down through the other side. But for right now it looks pretty good.

Adjust that how we want, and we're ready to tow. That's going to complete our test fit on the CIPA clip on towing mirror, part number 7070, on our 2017 Buick Envision.
