SEE MY   “HOW TO”   VIDEOS ON    ‘”YOUTUBE” : “Buds Helmet Mirrors”

To Install: Attach the spoke/claw to helmet.  You may need to bend it to match the shape of your helmets edge. BE SURE IT’S SNUG! This is not usually a problem. When satisfied, lock in place using a Cable Tie (Supplied)
Adjust VIEWING ANGLE by bending metal spoke using two pairs of pliers or strong fingers.  Bend the  spoke, not the connection point. DO NOT attempt to bend the spoke by holding the mirror, as that action will break the superlight mirror!

Proper adjustment: you should be able to see your finger on your left ear (and therefore see a car behind you) without turning your head, but simply by shifting your eye.  If the mirror becomes too loose, screw it in GENTLY, a little more (one turn), or unscrew it a few turns and put a small drop of Elmer’s or similar glue on the threads, screw it back together and let dry before using again.  Caution, If you screw it down too far, it will separate and delaminate.  This mirror should last several seasons with proper care. One of my testers used one for 10,000 miles with no problems.

This mirror is guaranteed not to de-silver for 90 days after purchase.  Sorry this product is not replaced free if lost or dropped, but contact me for a good customer reward.

Cable Tie. Simply find your favorite mounting spot and wrap the tie around and thru the helmet vent and spoke. Careful to aim the closure outward so you can remove and reuse the tie. This is a premium Gardner Bender cable tie-UV resistant!
