A towing mirror is an additional mirror that is fixed on the car mirror; as a result the dead corner will be reduced, so that pedestrians, cyclists and cars are all seen in time.
Repusel Towing Mirrors (Alufor with aluminium arms and Luxmax with tinted glasses and stainless steel arms) are supplied with either flat glass or convex glass.
Flat glass: does not give any deformation, you see what see yourself. The distance of the traffic behind you is easily estimated.
Convex glass: the panoramic view of the glass gives a larger view. Distance and speed are more difficult to estimate. After getting accustomed this is the better solution as you have a superior view and optically there are the ones with less vibration.
Does your towing mirror fit?
Whether a towing mirror can be fitted safely depends on the form and size of your car mirror.
Before buying a towing mirror first have a look whether your car mirror is well fixed to the coach-work to evade minimal vibrations. In case the car mirror is not suitable than the magnetic plate mirrors are a good solution for your door or motor bonnet.
