Wedge Mounts, Cam-Lock Mounts and the Cam-Lock Adapter

 

Here is a little information to help with the two main types of mirror mounts. The Wedge and Cam-Lock mounts. Gentex mirrors mount on the standard Wedge windshield mount found on most GM, Chrysler and Ford vehicles. Many newer Nissan, Toyota, Subaru and Mitsubishi vehicles also use this style mount. A special Cam-Lock adapter is available for vehicles that use the Cam-Lock style mirror mount. These include some Subaru, Toyota, Honda, Suzuki and Mitsubishi Models. Please contact us with your make/model and we will gladly advise as to what is needed.

 

 


WEDGE MOUNT

Wedge mount mirrors are generally standard on vehicles manufactured in the United States, regardless of vehicle make. However, there can be exceptions. Wedge-style mirrors must be removed by loosening a small screw or clip, and pushing the mirror up towards the roof of the vehicle. If your vehicle's mounting system looks similar to the photo at right, you have a wedge-mount mirror.

 

Some examples of Wedge Mount mirrors:

 



CAMLOCK MOUNT

Camlock mount mirrors are generally standard on vehicles manufactured outside of the United States, including some U.S. brands. Camlock-style mirrors must be removed by turning the mirror 90o so that it is perpendicular to the dash, and pulling down on the mirror. If your vehicle's mounting system looks similar to the photo at right, you have a camlock-mount mirror.

Some examples of Cam Lock Mount mirrors:

Other Mount Systems or Roof Mounted Mirrors

If your current mirror is mounted to the roof/ceiling of your vehicle or if the windshield mount is not the Wedge or CamLock style you can request a free windshield mount button kit (with the purchase of a mirror). It is recommended that you have your current mount replaced by a windshield professional because the risk of cracking your windshield is very high when removing the existing mirror mount.
