How to Install a CIPA Dual-View Clip-on Towing Mirror on a 2020 Toyota RAV4


Connor: Hey guys, how's it going Connor here today at etrailer.com. We're going to be taking a look at these CIPA universal fit dual view towing mirrors here for our 2020 Toyota RAV4.To really help you understand how much an improvement these aftermarket towing mirrors are, here for our RAV4, we're going to be standing directly beside the trailer, which as you can see, we're still visible in our factory side mirror. However, if we we're to step to the left a few feet, which would simulate our blind spot, we're no longer visible from the factory side mirror, but now we can clearly see with the aftermarket towing mirror.What I really like about these CIPA towing mirrors here is that we have this dual mirror face. With both of the mirror faces being adjustable independently, up and down, and side to side. Now the benefit of this dual mirror faces, we're going to have a much better view of our trailer, the blind spots in particular so we can safely merge in traffic.As we can see here we have a nice and tight fit on the back of our factory mirrors here. We don't have to worry about any damage to our factory mirror housing as well.

Best of all, it's not going to interfere with any of our existing mirror features such as the integrated turn signals, as well as the puddle lights underneath. We can also still fold our mirrors into the vehicle without having contact with our aftermarket towing mirrors here.Keep in mind, our CIPA dual view universal towing mirrors are sold individually as well as in the set. Basically the benefit of this is if we do unfortunately lose one or damage one, we can replace just that mirror. We don't have to buy both.To start our installation today, we might need to do a couple of minor adjustments to better conform the fit of our towing mirrors to our factory mirror housing. If we take a look on the backside of the mirror here, you see we're going to have some adjustment arms, which are going to allow us to slide our arms up and down to get a better fit to the factory mirror.

We're just going to go ahead and make a couple slight adjustments. Do some test fits to ensure that the arms are in the correct position.Furthermore, we need to make sure our ratchet strap mechanisms are going to be loosened all the way so we make sure we have enough strap to reach around the factory mirror housing. Once we have our adjustments made, we can now go ahead and set the towing mirror onto the vehicle's factory side mirrors. We have some clips in the front we want to make sure are hooked onto the lip of our factory mirror housing. Once so, we can take our straps here.

We can come around and tighten the towing mirror to our factory mirror housing.See we're a little loose here, so we're going to go ahead and pull our strap here to tighten it to hold it in place better. We can do this for the rear strap as well if needed. Now that we have our towing mirrors installed, the final step here is to make the adjustments to our mirror housings here so we can get the best view of our trailer. Once this is done, we're ready to hit the road.That's going to do it for our look and installation of the CIPA dual view universal towing mirrors here for our 2020 Toyota RAV4.
