HI Bilnetti.

I have been using these mirrors since last July.No problem with window seal.
I check the strap tension each morning.
Cheers.

I've had em on a Patrol and now on the Triton.

The only thing I do is buy some of the clear stick on paint protection strip from Repco. The pad that sits on the side of the door can rub the paintwork especially with a bit of the Red Heart of Aus under it.

Hi Bill and Netti,

We've had a set like that for several years now. We use stick on velcro to cover the metal that sits against the window seal and the window - aim to stop scratching. We also have two wool seat belt protectors on the straps where they sit against the door. The reason for these was that the belt used to get up a drum at times and annoyed us considerably. No problems since doing this.

They are the best mirrors we have had.

All of the above, plus try to get the plate that the mirror sits on as close to horizontal as possible. By doing this, the clamp that goes down the window sill sit straight, and flush with the window, and be less inclined to scrape on the window.
Cheers.
