I used this mirror for at least 6 years, maybe 8. I broke one or two, but it was definitely worth replacing with the same. In order to mount it on my old helmet, I shaved a little bit of the styro off to give me a FLAT surface for mounting.
The new helmet just doesn't have enough styro to meet the diameter of the mount. I sure wish it did. I LOVE this mirror.
I have a very creative mind Upon occasion, from having moved the little mirror around and re-angling it and doing so again & again so many times, it would be loose and not stay in position. I did not want to use glue, as then I wouldn't be able to adjust it any more at all. So...how did I solve the problem? I thought about it, and it became so easy! Take some nail polish and put a single coat on the ball of the mirror. Wait for at least 5-15 minutes, or until you know that it's completely dry, and snap it back into the socket. You now have a nice secure mirror which is going to stay in place! In fact, for a slight period of time, it is actually going to be a bit tight to move around..which is a PLUS. Also, after a while, if the base comes off, you can re-secure it with super glue. I did, and it worked well.
If anybody has the slightest idea how I can mount this mirror where there isn't very much styro on the side, and the way the vents are, also with almost NO flat surface space for mounting it, does anyone have any suggestions? I thought about possibly mounting it on the visor. Have to re-evaluate that.
I just got my newest bike and helmet 3 days ago. Wow!! Never had a bike so great, carbon frame and all, so light! Haven't ridden for 2 years as I was in a hit 'n' run and ended up in a bunch of pieces! Retired because of age, but more because I really couldn't return & do my usual...cooking, not cheffing..big difference.
If anybody has some suggestions for mounting the mirror, please send it my way.
Thank you for your feedback.
