    I purchased this item to allow me to move my Take A Look mirror off my glasses to a more secure mounting point on my helmet. I absolutely love the Take A Look mirror but I have very thin wire frame glasses that just did not provide a secure mount for the mirror. As others have pointed out this is just a simple piece of translucent plastic with two tabs that are supposed to attach to the foam on the inside of your helmet with included adhesive pads. The problem for me with this approach is that I could feel the plastic piece against the side of my forehead and due to the curve of the helmet foam the adhesive would tend to pull away from the foam on one of the tabs. I fixed this by carefully drilling out two very very thin slots in the foam just thick enough to allow a tight fit for the tabs with the adhesive pads removed. Once I was satisfied with the dry fit I removed the tabs from the slots and covered them with some 5 minute epoxy and pushed them back into the slots. The tabs are so thin that once they are epoxied back in the slots the integrity of the foam liner should not be compromised. A very small amount of foam is being removed here and the void in the foam is being filled by the mirror mount. Now my mirror mount is rock solid and sets about 1/4 inch out from the inside edge of the foam. This provides me a very stable rear view even over bumps. I just leave the mirror attached to the mount all the time, but it would be easy to remove and reattach over and over if you are so inclined. Once the mirror is removed you would barely notice the small portion of the plastic mount protuding below the surface of the helmet.

    I purchased this at the same time I purchased the rectangular eyeglass mirror. I did not know that the mirror could attach to the helmet visor. I attached my old one to my eyeglasses but wanted another option because my sunglasses are thin wire frames and do not hold the mirror well. For what it is it is not bad but I did find that you need to be careful when adjusting the mirror or the helmet as the mirror can slide off the adaptor.
