These are photos of how I stopped the clip on towing mirrors from folding backwards at high speed and when car or trucks pass by.

Slower and lower is better than higher and faster!

Nice idea. Can you buy it like that or did you make it yourself?

The mirrors were bought at Pretoria Caravans Campworld shop for about R600 and the nylon trap and suction cup (made in Germany) from a company in the Netherlands for R200.

Im sure the nylon straps and such cups can be sourced locally.

Very good idea. I like the straps. I am sure the normal cell phone holders at R60 each would work well.

I took a piece of string. Tied the mirror and attached it to the hinge of the Hilux door. Worked

Pi@#£d off that a R4  string had to hold a mirror on a R450 000 vehicle

At last !!!!

On the other hand, if some idiot hit the mirror while driving your mirror will fold and survive were as a normal mirror that do not collapse that easily could break.

Leon ek sal ook eerder die spieel trugsit in sy posisie as om dit te moet vervang teen 'n plaas se prys. Maar dan ook is dit so maklik om net 'n effens stywer veer of meganisme te gebruik wat steeds kan toevou maar dalk eers op 140.
