They work great! No vibration at all and acceptable visibility...although not as big as stock so field of vision is slightly less. No biggie and worth it for the quick removal.

seems like you could fix that pretty easy with a trip to the hardware store.

i can think of the parts i would use(or at least try to use) but i am not sure what any of them are called.
you could always find a longer bolt with the right thread pattern, cut the head off and thread one end into a piece of small pipe, with the mirror threaded into the other end.

Like a double female inside threaded pipe? That might work. Probably have to check out a plumber supply place. I have a tap set so I might be able to do it myself.

I was thinking you would have to tap it your self. Didn't know if they made a double female end
