How to Install the CIPA Clip-On Universal Fit Towing Mirrors on a 2015 Jeep Renegade


Ryan: Hey everybody, Ryan here at etrailer. Today on our 2015 Jeep Renegade, we're going to be taking a look at and showing you how to install the CIPA universal fit towing mirror, which is also sold as a set. Whenever we use a towing mirror, it's really going to help expand our field of view. So that can really come in handy whenever we're making a lane change, maybe backing up into a tight parking spot or just wanting to keep a closer eye on what's going on behind us. So to give you an example on how much more ground we're going to be able to cover, as you can see, I'm visible in our towing mirror, but not in our factory mirror. However, if I take a few steps over closer to our trailer, I'll disappear out of the towing mirror and become visible in our factory mirror.

That's really going to help eliminate any of those blind spots as well.One of the big questions we get asked all the time in regards to universal fit towing mirrors is if you're going to have any noise or vibration, especially at higher speeds. Well, to be honest with you, this one does fit nice and tight against the factory housing. So I really don't see that being an issue for you. And what's nice about this setup too, if you need to adjust your factory lens, we're not going to have to sacrifice any adjustability. We can go all the way up, all the way down and even side to side.

Now, if you do need to fold your mirrors in, for whatever reason, say maybe you're parked on the street for the time being, you still can fold them in about halfway before it makes contact. So although we're not able to bring them completely in, we are still able to free up a little bit of room.Now, the straps that hold our tow mirror in place are made from a softer rubber material. So not only are they going to help grip our factory housing, but we're not going to have to worry about them scratching up the paint either. And I will say I've seen a lot of different towing mirrors and one of the big things that really separates this one from a lot of the others is how clear the lens is going to be. So whenever you look into it, the picture is nice and sharp and you can really see what's going on.

As opposed to some of the other ones that have a dull and foggy picture whenever you look into it. So the great thing about universal mirrors is that they fit a lot of different vehicles. So chances are pretty good if you have another vehicle in the household, these are probably going to work with it too.And if you want to switch them around back and forth often, it's really not a huge deal because these are very easy to put on and take off. Speaking of which let's go ahead and put one on together now. To get the mirror installed, you're simply just going to take it and hold it flat against your factory housing, where you want it and hold it in place with one hand and move around to the other side.

We're just going to grab our straps and the little buckles here. We're just going to loop them right over the tabs up top. And if you picked up a set, you'd simply just repeat the same process over on the other side. And that'll finish up our look at and our installation of the CIPA universal fit towing mirror on our 2015 Jeep Renegade.
