Mirror problem solved

I have been having trouble keeping the cheap SCA (SuperCheap Auto) towing mirrors secured to the PHEV mirrors. I have kept my older magnetic door mirrors (just in case) but don't like using them as they have a reputation for scratching the door glass.

Anyway the trick is to cross the straps. Secure the first strap from closer to the car to the outside then do the other strap. Then tighten them again. The slight protuberance of the mirror indicator lense holds them in place perfectly. Before doing this I had to re-position and tighten them every 60 km or so (they kept sliding to the outside of the cars mirror) - now they stay in place all day.
