How to Install a K-Source Universal Dual Lens Towing Mirrors 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 the K Source universal dual lens towing mirrors, here for our 2020 Toyota RAV4. To really give you a better feel of how these towing mirrors increase your visibility, we're going to be standing directly beside a trailer here, which as you can see, we are clearly seen in the factory mirror housings. However, if we we're to step over a few feet to simulate our blind spot, as you can see we're no longer visible from the factory mirror when we are able to be seen here from our aftermarket towing mirrors.In regards to universal towing mirrors, this K Source option is by far my favorite. There's a couple of reasons why this is my favorite. Number one, we have a dual lens mirror face here, which is going to give us an increased view of our trailer, in particular our blind spot, via the blind spot mirror on the side.

What's nice is, both of these mirror faces are completely adjustable up and down and side to side, which is going to give us the best view of any particular trailer we may be towing it the time.If we jump around to the backside of our mirrors here, this is probably the most notable feature that really sets these K Source towing mirrors apart from the competition. It's going to be this ratchet strap mechanism here, which is used to tighten and loosen the mirrors to our factory mirror housings. It's going to provide a very, very, very tight fit. Not so much so that it damages the factory mirror housing, but it's going to allow us to get a really good fit on our factory mirror here. So we're not going to have any distortion in our mirror face while we're traveling down the road.Something to keep in mind.

If you do end up losing your straps here, these are easily removable and replaceable without having to replace the entire mirror. We do sell these replacement parts here at etrailer.As we can see here, another feature I really like about these towing mirrors here is that we have this thick rubber bushing on the backside here, which is going to hold the mirror firmly and it's also going to ensure that we don't damage the factory mirror's finish. We're also not going to interfere with any of the factory mirrors existing features, such as the puddle lamp beneath, the turn signals integrated into the mirror, as well as the folding feature.When we're done towing, the mirrors are super easy to remove. We'll simply lift the covers off here, and then we're going to depress this little tab here, which is going to loosen our ratchet strap on both sides. That's going to allow us to take the towing mirror completely off the vehicle in a matter of seconds.

As you can see here, no damage to the factory mirror housing.To start our installation today, we want to go ahead and install our ratchet strap mechanism on our mirror housing here. We have a little hook on the bottom, as well as a keeper on a strap, which is connected to our mirror. Just going to simply join the two together and pull out to lock it in place. Then the next thing we need to do is, we need to get rid of.. Or we need to get more slack on our strap here so we have more room to go over the factory mirror housing.

In order to do that, we're simply just going to press this button here and pull out. That's going to give us a lot more slack, so we have room to fit around the factory mirror housing. We want to do that on both of our ratchet strap mechanisms here, and again just press that button and pull out.If we have particularly large factory mirror housings, there's also some other adjustments we can make with our little buckle and strap here that we would simply just feed the strap through the buckle and then pull out more to increase its length. Now once we have our straps roughly adjusted, we can go ahead and fit the towing mirror onto our factory mirror housing so we can contour the arms in the location they need to be. We're going to have these hooks on the bottom side of these tabs here, which are going to fit in between the factory mirror housing and our mirror face, for a nice snug and secure fit.Now we can come around on the back here. We want to make our final connections here at the bottom with our hooks and our keepers here. We need to make those on both sides. Once those are locked into position, we can go ahead and use the racketing mechanism to tighten it against our factory mirror housing here, by simply just pulling up. We want to alternate back and forth so we get a nice secure fit. Once we get a nice and tight fit, I'm going to go ahead just give a nice little shake on them, make sure they're not going to move. Go ahead and place the covers back, and that's it.Then once we get our towing mirrors on, we can come inside the vehicle, make any adjustments we need to so we can get a better view of our trailer, and that's it. We're ready to hit the road.
