Un-trusting mirrors

Looking to see if there is any way to tighten my mirrors? It's bad enough that I have to use a spot mirror for the huge blind spot then add in the mirror want stay set makes for some interesting moments. :dance

Re: Un-trusting mirrors

remove mirrors check to see if any of the housing is broken around the clips, if not check behind the little nipple bolts some times there is a washer behind them which you can remove that's about it.
put a little bit of grease on the ball to help the clip slide over
