I've got a "third eye" type bike mirror attached to my helmet. It has two points of articulation: one near where it mounts to the helmet, which controls how far it swings up, and the other near the mirror which adjusts the mirror angle. When I first got it, there was some resistance to adjusting it either way, so once it was adjusted it just stayed in place. However, over time this resistance has decreased, to the point where the movement of air past me down a steep hill, or turning my head suddenly causes the mirror to move or the whole thing to swing out away from me. In either case the result is I suddenly cannot see behind me until I have time to safely move my hand up to adjust it back into place. As it usually happens at a time when it is not safe for me to do this, my ability to use the third eye goes away at times when I might need it most.
I have tried using hot glue to fix both ends in place, and this works for a while, but over time it keeps working its way loose, especially the side closest to the helmet. At the same time, hot glue is not particularly flexible, so if I don't get it adjusted just right I wind up on my bike having to turn my head one way or another to hit the sweet spot where I can see directly behind me.
What it seems like would be useful is if there was some kind of fluid that I could run over the contact points which would increase the amount of friction enough that either end would stay put when I'm not trying to adjust it, but not enough to prevent me from adjusting it whenever I need to. Kind of like the opposite of oil, and ideally something nothing sticky to the point of attracting too much dust and grime or otherwise making a mess of my hands whenever I try to adjust the mirror, yet long lasting enough that I don't have to apply it more than maybe every month or to.
Does something like this exist? Or is there some other solution that can be recommended?
