A lot of late model vehicles come with electronically adjustable mirrors, but not all trucks, commercial vehicles, or even cars do. And, as we all know, there’s nothing worse than getting into your vehicle and realizing that your mirrors are not adjusted properly. You’re either seeing too much of the truck, road, or sky, or a mixture of all three.
However, Joe has a simple trick that will solve this problem in one go. All you need to do is stand directly against the vehicle and aim the mirror until you can see the driver’s headrest. This should work every time, even if you are a different height than Joe, as it will be a personalized set-up height.
So, let’s get started!
As Joe explains, a lot of late-model vehicles come equipped with electronically adjustable mirrors. However, many trucks and commercial vehicles still have manual mirrors. It can be frustrating when you get into your vehicle, ready to hit the road, only to find that the mirror is not adjusted correctly. You end up seeing too much truck, road, sky or a combination of all three.
But, don’t worry! There’s an easy solution. To adjust your manual mirror correctly, all you need to do is stand directly against the vehicle and aim the mirror until you can see the driver’s headrest. This simple trick will ensure that your mirror is adjusted to your personal height and will work every time. It doesn’t matter if you’re a different height to the person who adjusted the mirror last, this trick will give you a customized setup height.
And that’s it! This technique will work on your truck, van, car, campervan, bus, boat, and even on your garden shed (just kidding, not the garden shed). The point is, it will work on any manual mirror and will save you time and frustration every time you want to adjust your mirrors.
