I don't think this was answered but I have almost 45,000 and no problems with the mirrors escaping. Zip ties are what I use, just in case.
My wrench says:
1. Grease the 3 wire lock points
2. Make sure the 3 pins are positioned so the mirror has a uniform gap all the way around
3. Make sure all 3 locking points are engaged properly
4. Zip tie with one that is large enough to withstand an escape attempt
Just my .02
