How to Install the CIPA Clip-on Towing Mirror on a 2017 Jeep Cherokee


Today on our 2017 Jeep Cherokee, 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 backup while towing a trailer or camper. As you can see I'm visible in the towing mirror, but not the factory mirror. 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 setup. This is the view you get with just your factory mirror. The mirror itself can be rotated 360 degrees, so if you'd like to turn it to a horizontal position for a different view, you have that option.

It can also be adjusted to most angles. We've got our up and down, diagonal, and side-to-side. Each one of our four clips here is 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 rubber straps to hold it in place. The nice thing about them being rubber is they're going to help grip the back side of the mirror and prevent hardly any movement.

The other nice thing is, we don't have to worry about it harming or scratching the finish on our mirror. A few great things about this towing mirror are: For one, it's for temporary use. If you do light duty towing or a lot of towing, you can install it and remove it quick and easy. One other great thing is, it's universal. If you have any other trucks or SUVs in the family, it's going to fit those, too. 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, I'll show you how to get it installed. I'm here on the driver's side of my Cherokee. To begin our test fit, let's go ahead and turn our mirror over. We need to make sure that each one of our clips here with the lip on it, clips onto the inside of the housing. Turn it back over, can open up those arms. I'm going to go ahead and try to center it up with my mirror.

Once I've got it where I want it, hold it in place with one hand. I'll run the straps on the backside. Now, when we run our straps, we're going 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. Raise it up, clip it on top. We can adjust that strap how we want, if needed. Want to make sure my mirror's in the same spot that I want it, and then we can repeat the same process with the second strap. Now, if we want to tighten it or loosen it, we can guide the strap up through and pull it down through the other side. That looks pretty good though, stretch it up. Now, we're ready to tow. It's that easy. That's going to complete our test fit on the CIPA clip-on towing mirror, part number 7070, on our 2017 Jeep Cherokee.
