Increase Rear Visibility When Towing
Towing incidents involving loads wider than your pulling vehicle are common in work and moving scenarios, as well as during recreational activities like trailer-based camping and the hauling of off-road vehicles and watercraft. Regardless of when these events occur the common problem is that they can create significant and potentially dangerous challenges to drivers' rear field of view. For over 20 years CIPA Custom Tow Mirrors have provided the optimal solution to deal with this problem quickly, effectively and inexpensively, no matter the make and model of your vehicle. Augmenting your vehicle's standard OEM rearview mirrors CIPA Custom Tow Mirrors are aerodynamic, sliding snugly over your vehicle's existing rearview side mirror and feature an additional mirror on the outboard end that can be independently adjusted. The result is a new and improved rearview mirror assembly that extends your towing vision, without obstructing your existing vehicle mirror.
Durable Construction and Easy Installation
CIPA Custom Tow Mirrors are made from durable ABS plastic, with the additional outer mirror built into each, constructed of scratch-resistant glass. This rugged construction ensures years of unobstructed towing use that can be counted on in the most demanding of situations. Mirror installation is tool-free and when done correctly and carefully poses no risk of scratching to your vehicle. CIPA Custom Tow Mirrors attach to your vehicle's existing side rearview mirrors using a secure wedge-lock design. Once the Custom Tow Mirror's main section is slid over your vehicle's OEM rearview mirror, the high-strength plastic wedge included for each mirror is placed between them. The wedge is in turn held in place with a threaded knob that passes through the towing mirror to press the wedge against the original mirror with the end of the wedge holding the towing mirror firmly in place. In addition, included neoprene tape pieces are placed on the wedge and also inside of the towing mirror during the first installation. This tape acts as a cushion that protects the vehicle mirror from scratches and damage that could inadvertently be caused during installation of the towing mirror. Together this makes CIPA Custom Tow Mirrors extremely easy to install in seconds by virtually any driver, of any level of experience and the perfect midline priced solution for all your towing needs.

1913 Locomobile with the Homes 4-Ton Wrecker @ International Towing and Recovery Museum, Chattanooga, TN
The towing industry was born in 1916 in the city of Chattanooga, after Ernest Holmes, Sr., a native Chattanoogan, helped a friend retrieve his car with three poles, a pulley and a chain hooked to the frame of a 1913 Cadillac. After patenting his invention, Holmes began manufacturing wreckers and towing equipment for sale to automotive garages and anyone interested in retrieving and towing wrecked or disabled autos. His first manufacturing facility was a small shop on Market Street, just a few blocks from the museum.
