If you’ve ever had to re-glue a rear-view mirror back into place, you’ll instantly see the value in this tool.  If not, you’ll just have to trust us: it kicks ass.  It’s way better than holding the mirror in place for a bit by hand, then hoping that it won’t get too hot in the car — it will — before it dries completely.

Plus, getting the dried glue off your car’s dash and center console when the mirror falls down while you’re at work during the day sucks.  Really.

In case you can’t visualize how it works: You stick it on the window with the suction cups on either side of the mirror, then crank the screw down to hold the mirror in place.

Street pricing is a whopping $13, which is lots cheaper than a new center console.

    Although this is a neat gadget and possibly a cool tool, the key to getting mirror replacement right the first time is proper surface preparation and following the glue pack instructions (read instructions, you’ve got to be kidding). Separate the metal tab from the mirror, outline the old mounting spot by tracing the glue residue from the outside with an alcohol pen, scrape off the residue from the tab and inside glass. Clean mounting surfaces with brakeclean/alcohol, use the activator and glue waiting the times idicated on the glue package attaching only the metal tab to the glass. This is one time when more glue isn’t a good thing. The drop in the center of the metal tab is all you need and you better get it level and in the right spot in one motion.. Reattach the mirror after waiting the required time, and another satisfied customer will be on their way. They probably won’t use the mirror to look for traffic but, at least they’ll have something to hang stuff from so, they can’t see out the front either.

    This is excellent! I’m going to use two mirrors I pulled from big GM sedans as kind-of a cheper and more-flexible Wink mirror in my race car. This will make putting on two more glue-on buttons far easier.

    “They probably won’t use the mirror to look for traffic but, at least they’ll have something to hang stuff from so, they can’t see out the front either.”

    Now THAT’s funny! Here’s how to use mirrors to identify an idiot on the road: If you are directly behind them, and you can see the driver’s face in perfect profile in the side-view mirror, you have identified an idiot. Stay clear of them and be aware they have no idea what a “blind spot” is…
