Clip on convex rearview mirror?..

That fits on an electrochromatic mirror. Do they exist?
The problem is where the original mirror dips down in the middle. I am looking for one for my '06 F150 and my wife's '08 Camry.
This is a weird question..I think I will look for a baby product forum next

I know you can get the small convex mirrors at like auto zone. I have a set on my 91. Not sure if those would work?

Are you talking about ones that stick to the original mirror or ones that clip below it??
Either way I will check auto zone.
Thank you!

Stick ons over the original mirror. Not that the stock mirror is much use anyway.

I have Broadway convex rearview mirror clip onto the existing mirror.

I believe the Broadway mirror should work for you.

This is what I was looking for.. I may have to modify it though as they basically give you a glorified rubber band to hold it onto the existing rear view. The reviews I have read say it moves aorund too much and the mirror is too distorted.. I have one for both vehicles now and will let you folks know after I drive to the beach tomorrow.

It seems to stay in place fairly well. Though it fell off as soon as my wife adjusted the mirror for her height.
It is also very distorted unless the mirror is pointed directly at the child.. My little guy is an only child thus far and sits in the middle of the back seat, so this works well enough, but images off center are useless.
