Re: Gotta love Chicago...
Sound like they come with tethers now? The gap is important as it allows the spring clips to go fully over the ball pins. There should also be a light film of grease that ensures the clip go over and around the ball. If there is no gap in the mirror to body area they won't hold worth a darn. There should be a few washers under some tape in the mirror base area. Just don't try to tighten the ball pins to tight as they will shear.
I have hit a few hard bumps but have only had two of the three clips pop on me.
