HDB folding mirrors

Is there a trick to these folding mirrors? I cannot seem to get them into a a good enough position where I don't have to duck my head to see what's behind me. Anyone with these mirrors your insight would be helpful.

I'm normal height, 5'10", rox risers installed.

Regards.

They do seem to have somewhat limited adjustability but I have been able to get mine in a good spot. I really like they are wide enough that I'm not looking at my shoulders all the time.

Yes....the trick is that the "ball in cup" pivot is critical to getting the right position. While rotating it in an out is easy, twisting it in the cup is more difficult. Loosen it of a bit and play around, especially twisting it a bit. They work great!
