How to Install the K Source Universal Clip-On Towing Mirror on a 2012 Toyota 4Runner


Today on our 2012 Toyota 4Runner, we're going to be doing a test fit on the K-Source Universal Clip-on Towing Mirror, part number KS3891. It offers us a wide field of view, it's going to allow us to safely and easily change lanes, pass, park, or even back up while towing a trailer or camper. As you can see, I'm visible in the towing mirror, but not the factory mirror. Now, 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 set up, but this is the view you get with just your factory mirror. The mirror itself can be adjusted to most angles. We've got our up and down, diagonal, and side to side. If we remove the Philips head screw from behind the mirror, we can take it out and turn it to the horizontal position for a different view. Each one of our clips here is not going to interfere with the operational movement of our factory mirror and we can even still fold it in. Here on the backside it uses two ratchet straps to hold it in place around the factory mirror.

The nice thing about them being ratchet is they're going to snug and grip that mirror a lot better than other straps. They also feature rubber pads so we won't harm or scratch the finish of our mirror. You can see how it's only covering up a small portion of our turn signal here. A few great things about this towing mirror are, is for one, it's for temporary use, so you can take it off when you're not towing. And two, it's universal, so if you have any other trucks or SUVs in the family, it may work with those as well. 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. So I'm here on the driver's side of my 4Runner. To begin our test fit, we need to make sure that each one of the clips here is in the open position, that way we can easily set it in place on the housing. Once they're all opened up, we can go ahead and set it in place. So we'll set the bottom in place here, and then the top here, then we can run our straps on the back side. Now when we run our straps, we're going to make sure that the rubber pad here kind of contours the back side of the mirror, so we're going to put it on in this direction. The top hook here is just going to be clipped onto that top tab, then the rubber strap portion here is going to clip on underneath just the same.

Once they're connected, we can come up to our ratchet and ratchet it down in place. Then we can just repeat the same process for our second strap. When we're all done towing and we want to release the inaudible 00:02:28 underneath our cover, we've got a little button here that's going to allow us to guide it out. But for right now, inaudible 00:02:35 in place and we're ready to tow, it's that easy. And that's going to complete our test fit of the K-Source Universal Clip-on Towing Mirror, part number KS3891, on our 2012 Toyota 4Runner.
