Power your radar detector from your auto-dimming mirror

If your vehicle has an auto-dimming mirror, then you've got a convenient power source for your radar detector. The experts at BlendMount created MirrorTap hardwire kits to supply permanent power for your Cobra, K40, Radenso, Uniden, or Whistler detector with a clean installation that'll leave your windshield uncluttered. Best of all, BlendMount makes this hardwire kit in the United States of America.

Comes with everything you need for dependable juice

This MTX-2015 MirrorTap kit features a 15-inch long sheathed cable with a 2-amp inline fuse to ensure reliable power delivery to your radar detector from your rear-view mirror. BlendMount includes four pairs of military-grade taps (each pair of a different width), plus zip ties, shrink tubing, electrical tape, and detailed installation instructions.

Tap into the mirror's wiring

You'll need to determine which taps fit into your mirror's Molex wiring harness. You'll also need to identify the ground wire and the 12-volt switched wire in your mirror's wire harness. If you are unable to use a voltmeter, we recommend taking your vehicle to a professional installer. After you've determined the correct size taps to use and the correct positions in the Molex plug for the 12-volt wire and ground to tap, secure the entire assembly to the mirror with the tubing, electrical tape, and zip ties, then run the cable to your detector's power input.

Works with DC plug openings

The DC plug works with a wide variety of radar detectors from Cobra, K40, Radenso, Uniden, or Whistler — be sure to check your detector to make sure it has a DC plug and not an RJ-11 telephone-style plug.

Features

Overview: BlendMount's MTX-2015 MirrorTap kit lets you power your Cobra, K40, Whistler, Radenso, or Uniden radar detector from your auto-dimming mirror, providing a cleaner looking installation and freeing up your dash or console power socket. Please use BlendMount's Fit Guide to find the right products for your vehicle.

Construction: The MirrorTap kit includes a Power Cable constructed of a pair of 24 AWG wires protected by a durable outer sheath. One end features a DC power connector, that plugs into your radar detector, while a pair of male/female terminals on the other end are used for attaching the appropriate Taps. This end also houses an inline 2A fuse encased in rubber (non-replaceable). Four pairs of military-grade Taps are provided (.040", .045", .060", and .075") with one pair getting used based on the pin size of the vehicle's auto-mirror Molex connector. When the appropriate Taps are inserted into the 13" Power Cable, the entire cable length is approximately 15".

Installation: Installation of the MirrorTap requires identifying the auto-dimming mirror's power and ground wires, located in the factory Molex connector, using a voltmeter or multimeter (not included). One pair of the provided Taps will be used to "tap" into the identified power and ground pin-connections. Tap size is determined by carefully inserting each size Tap one at a time into the appropriate wire-slot. The correct size Tap will provide a snug fit into the connector. The other end of the Taps are connected to their corresponding ends of the DC Power Cable. A small piece of electrical tape and shrink-tubing are provided to secure the Taps to the power cable. Two wire-ties are included for securing the cable to the factory wiring, providing a cleaner looking installation as well as helping provide strain-relief for the Taps.
