Side view mirrors are necessary so you can see what may be beside you while driving. The side view mirrors can be inadequate, however. For example, if you tow a trailer or your vehicle just happens to have a lot of blind spots you may want to install a set of convex blind spot mirrors onto your standard side view mirrors to enhance visibility and eliminate dangers from blind spots.

- Alcohol rub
Wipe the surface of the side mirror lens clean with an alcohol rub and allow the mirror to air-dry.
Remove the cover from the double sided tape on the back of the blind spot mirror.
Place the blind spot mirror in the lower corner of the side mirror lens. If placing the blind spot mirror on the driver side mirror, place the blind spot mirror in the lower left corner of the lens. If placing the mirror on the passenger side mirror, place the blind spot mirror in the lower right corner of the mirror lens. Make sure the edge of the blind spot mirror does not extend over the ends of the side view mirror lens. If the blind spot mirror does stick over the edge, it could prevent you from being able to adjust the side mirror properly.
