Q: How do I lock the CFR bracket into place?

To lock the arm of a CFR-series bracket into place, push the arm down until the red dot at the base of the arm is no longer visible. On older versions of the CFR-series bracket, there is no red dot, but the function is the same – the arm drops into a channel in the lower clamp. Once in place, tighten the lock knob two full turns (clockwise). See graphic below or video at the bottom of this page.

Q: What’s the difference between the CFR-200 and ZXR brackets?

The carbon fiber CFR-200 bracket locks into place by dropping into a channel and tightening the knob on the side. The aluminum ZXR brackets have a knob on the back that controls an internal cam that locks the bracket in the upright position.

Q: Will The VR Mirrors Fit My Current Bracket?

The VR mirrors have a spherical mounting system compatible with many existing brackets on the market. For some existing tower mounted brackets, the RTS-100 will be necessary to mount the VR mirrors.

Q: How Do You Mount The Bracket?

Regardless whether you have the ZXR-Series or the PXR pontoon mirror, installation is a snap. With the tightening of two bolts with a 1/4” Allen wrench, the brackets lock into place. Occasionally, the trim will require the insertion of rubber shims (provided) to provide a solid surface on which the bracket will clamp. The brackets can be easily repositioned with these same bolts. No drilling is required and there is no damage to the windshield trim or pontoon rail.

Q: Do You Make A Less Expensive Bracket?

Depending on your application, various brackets are available from PTM Edge at different prices. The key attributes are functionality and versatility. The ZXR-Series brackets are constructed of rugged 6061 billet aluminum and incorporate a patent-pending design. They lock into place, preventing sloppy vibrations, and fold down, allowing covering and transportation without removal. While there are cheaper options, none perform like the PTM Edge brackets.

Q: We Have A 4-Point Tower With A Tower Arm Bracket That Comes Off And Ends In A Round Rod. Can The VR Mirrors Be Mounted To The End Of This Rod?

Yes. You need an RTS-100 adapter that connects the rod to the VR-Series mirror.

Q: We Have A U-Shaped Rod Mounted To Our Windshield Trim That Holds The Mirror. Can The VR-Series Mirror Be Mounted To The U-Shaped Rod?

Yes. Some users have cut the rod and used an RTS-100 adapter to connect the rod to the VR-Series mirror. After cutting the rod in the center point, slide the RTS-100 halfway onto one side of the rod. Insert the other side of the rod into the remaining clamping area of the RTS-100. Tighten to hold the rod together and re-mount onto the desired windshield location. Add the VR-Series mirror per instructions.
