How to Install the CIPA Dual-View Clip-On Towing Mirror on a 2016 Jeep Patriot

Today on our 2016 Jeep Patriot, we're going to be doing a test fit on the CIPA dual view clip-on towing mirror. That's part number 11953. 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 small trailer or camper. As you can see, I'm visible in the towing mirror, but not the factory mirror. Between both mirrors, you get the same view just a closer, more clearer view in the larger mirror.

If I take a few steps in towards my trailer, you can see there's no blind spot by the way we have it set up. This is the view you'd get with just your factory mirror. Both the larger and the smaller mirror can be adjusted to most angles. We've got our up and down, diagonal, and side to side. As you can see, they're fairly easy to move. Over here, the four tabs with the lip on the inside is not going to interfere with the operation or movement of our factory mirror.

We can even still fold it in. Here on the backside it uses two rubber straps to hold it in place around the factory housing. The nice thing about them being rubber is they're going to grip the backside of that mirror and reduce road shock and vibration. We also don't have to worry about any wear and tear. 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 easy it is to get installed. To begin our test fit let's go ahead and turn our mirror over.

We're going to turn our attention to these two knobs here. By loosening them up, it's going to allow us to extend our arms out so we can easily fit it around our housing. With them loosened up let's go ahead and turn it back over and set it and position our mirror. I'm just going to center it up. Make sure that the all four tabs sit on the inside of the housing.

Once I've got it where I want it, I'm going to hold it in place and come around to the backside and tighten up my knobs. I'll just tighten them up. Get them nice and secure. Now we can run our straps. Now, it's important that we have a little bit of tension on the strap already. That way when we clip it in place it holds the mirror in place. We're just going to lift it up, clip it on top. Going to adjust that strap how we want. Then we'll just run our other strap. If we want to tighten it or loosen it, we can either guide the strap through and pull it down through the other side, or we can just pull it through one side. Go ahead and run it up on top. Clip it in place and adjust it. That's it. We're ready to tow. It's easy. That's going to complete our test fit on the CIPA dual view clip-on towing mirror. Part number 11953 on our 2016 Jeep Patriot.
