Description
The mirror sits at a 90 degree angle to the long steel rod. Place the mirror on feet with the rod on the thigh and it will remain steady.

Users comments
The user bought a mirror and had it adapted at a service center. Any hand mirror attached to a long handle would work for this purpose. The angle between mirror and handle does not have to be adjustable, though this would make it easier to use.
