How to Install the K-Source Snap & Zap Towing Mirrors on a 2016 Toyota Tundra


Rob here at etrailer.com. And today we're going to be taking a look at the K-Source Snap & Zap Custom Towing Mirrors, on our 2016 Toyota Tundra. So here's what our towing mirror going to look like. Now, obviously what a towing mirror is going to do for you is this is going to give you an extended view. So whenever you are towing a trailer, you can see your trailer, watch those back tires. Make it easier to park, change lanes, just a lot easier to drive.

Not having to stick your head out the window and keep peeking back. But what I really like about these towing mirrors is they are going to be very specifically made for our Tundra. You can see it's going to go over the entire mirror and it almost looks like it's just an extension of the factory mirror because it has a really clean appearance to it.And our entire mirror is just going to slide over our factory housing and then be held in place by these four clips. So we're not going to have to worry about those straps on the universal mirrors, failing or losing the mirror on the side of the road. And since it does almost look like factory, it's going to allow us to keep all of our factory functions.

We may get in that tight spot. We need to fold our mirrors in, but we're not going to have to remove the tow mirror. We can still fold our mirrors all the way in and make that space a little bit more compact. We're going to be able to adjust that mirror diagonally up and down, and left and right to get that perfect viewing angle of our trailer behind us. Now, here I am standing at the back of my trailer.Now you can clearly see me in the factory mirror, but the problem comes in.

When I step away, you're going to lose track of me, but with our K-Source Snap & Zap, you're going to be able to see me even outside of that factory mirror and the way we have it set up, it'll be a transition. So we never have a blind spot. It is going to be really nice when we're going down the highway, and we need to change lanes. We can look over into the lane next to us without having to stick our head out the window, or if we need to back up our trailer, or even pulling up at the campgrounds, having an extended field of views is going to make it that much easier. Another nice feature that the K-Source has included is they include this bag for us.

Whenever we're not towing, we can put our mirrors inside, that way we won't lose them.The nice thing is too, is there's a divider inside the bag so we can put our left and right mirrors in between. So we don't have to worry about them banging together, potentially scratching each other. But these are extremely easy to put on. In fact, let's go and put the driver's side on together.So the first thing we want to do is grab our mirror out of the box, and we want to pay attention to these four tabs that are sticking down towards the inside of the mirror. I'm going to grab these top ones. We're going to slide it over our mirror and hook onto the housing. So we'll just slide it on towards pretty close to lining up. Make sure those hooks grab the top of the mirror. We're just going to rotate it down, push the bottom until it locks into place. It's just that easy. But again, I'm Rob here at etrailer.com. That'll finish up your look at the K-Source Snap & Zap custom towing mirrors on our 2016 Toyota Tundra..
