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


Today on our 2017 Jeep Cherokee we're going to be a test fit on the CIPA dual view clip-on towing mirror, 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 trailer or camper. As you can see, I'm visible in the towing mirror but not the factory mirror. Between both mirrors, the larger and the smaller one, you get the same view just a closer, more clearer view in the larger one. 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, but 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 then side-to-side. Each one of the four clips here 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 mirror. The nice thing about them being rubber is you're going to get a nice grip to the backside here.

We don't have to worry about it harming or scratching the finish of the mirror either. A nice thing about this towing mirror is it's for temporary use. If you do light duty towing or a lot of towing it's easy to install and remove. Another great thing is that it's universal, so if you any other trucks or SUVs in the family it may fit those as well. 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. 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 and turn our attention to the two knobs here. By loosening these up it allows us to extend our arms out so we can easily fit it and correctly fit it around our factory mirror. We'll open our arms up, turn it back over, and set it place. I'm just going to center it up with my mirror here. Once I get it where I want it I'm going to hold it in place, come around to the backside, and tighten up the knobs. As you can see here we had minimal adjustment, but at least it fits correctly.

We'll go ahead and tighten those back up and then run our straps. When we run these we want 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, and we can adjust that strap how we want. I want to make sure my mirror is still where I want it and we can repeat the same process with the second strap. If we want to tighten it or loosen it we can guide the strap up through and pull it down through the other side. This looks pretty good, and clip it in place and then we're ready to tow. It's that easy. That's going to complete our test fit on the CIPA dual view clip-on towing mirror, part number 11953 on our 2017 Jeep Cherokee.
