This is a review of the CAR Swivel Blind Spot Mirror
From the initial images I saw of the CAR Swivel Blind Spot Mirror I was expecting a slightly larger mirror. It doesn’t connect to your wing mirrors but sits on the dash or as I found seems to work best on the inside of the door near the wing mirror. It only comes as a pack of 1 so you will need to use this on the drivers side.
There are three parts to this mirror, there is the base, the stem and the mirror itself. To assemble you will need to put the ball of the stem into to socket at the back of the mirror. The socket is quite a thin plastic, it isn’t very sturdy so be careful not to force it otherwise it may crack. The ability to swivel the mirror works well but again requires care.
The base of the stand uses a 3m adhesive tape for you to stick it down. I found this worked very effectively at first but due to wanting to move its position as I felt I could not quite get this right, it began to loose its stick ability and required another layer of tape adding to work. What I do like about the base is the flexibility of it to sit on uneven surfaces and curves making it very easy to sit on the dash board.
Pros & Cons
- Great blind spot view
- Simple design
- Large view
- Not very strong
- The ball and socket can get easily damaged
Conclusion & where to buy
This is a simple designed swivel blind spot mirror, the mirror works well but its slightly flimsy set up lets it down.
