The trick I used when I had them (not very long
) was to remove them and separate the expanding collar portion from the mirror, measure the depth of the part of the mirror that goes into the bar, insert the collar just far enough in so that the bolt will still start and thread properly once the mirror is inserted, insert the mirror and carefully get the bolt started, then tighten as usual.
This made sure the collar was as far in as it could be BEFORE it was expanded by tightening the bolt.
Worked for me YRMV....
