Help with bar end mirrors

Hey guys, for the past few weeks I have been noticing that my mirrors were moving at highway speeds, I removed them and I can't seem to get them back in tight enough to where they won't move anymore. Is there any other option for mounting them besides the set up I currently have? I would prefer to not have to buy new mirrors. I appreciate the help!

Should be able to tighten up the rubber so that it grips the inside of the handlebar.
When you say the mirrors move do you mean vibrate or actually change adjustment? Like fold up?

Looks like you need to adjust the nut tighter.

Yeah I know that the tighter the nut the wider the rubber gets, the problem is that the nut turns when I am trying to tighten it once its inside the handlebar. So I have to tighten it first then try to jam it in there, and its either too tight and it won't go in or lose enough that once I get it in there it will still move at highway speeds. And to answer the other question I am not talking about vibration, it moves position.

I was just wondering if there is another option instead of the rubber method, that would be more efficient.

Maybe tighten the nut outside the bars where the thing fits in real tight tgen push it in and make sure the rubber is cleaned real well

Something ain't right.
You should be able to tighten the rubber with it already inside the bar. Not sure how your specific setup works. Can you rotate the bar end or is there something like a bolt opposite from the nut end?
That's how those things usually work, you install it then tighten it up...

Looking at the picture, maybe you're supposed to rotate the mirror itself. When it starts to tighten up then stop turning it when it gets in the position you want.

Maybe?
