    Default Cheetah Mirror tabs broken

    Hi

    I realize this product is no longer supported or sold. I've had one for years and it has served me well. However, on a recent really hot day while removing to do upgrade the bottom fixed tabs broke off. Unit works perfect but I have no ways of fixing on rear view mirror. Does anyone have a solution. I already tried velcro but it wont hold due to the heat. I'll have to live without it unless i can find a solution

    Do you still have the tabs? I know one poster needed to move his tab to fit an onstar mirror and used JB Weld epoxy.

    I used a dremel and removed all tabs. Then I opened up the rear case and used the dremel to make slots in the case itself and ran 2 velcro strips through the rear panel of the case and secured the unit to the rearview mirror. Its actually very secure and looks great. In some ways I like it better than the tabs. Will post some pics soon.

    So basically you cut 4 slits? 2 on each side and then ran the velcro through then strapped it to the mirror? Only thing is the velcro typically you need both parts to stick right? Unless you used velcro straps used to bundle wires or something?
