Default Mirrors Folding or Locking - Pointy 2014

Hi All,

I keep my bike in the house, this means every night I have to fold my mirrors in and then in the morning unfold again.

My issue is that sometimes the folding causes the Allen bolt to tighten and the mirror wont move, I have to use an Allen key to free it/them and if I leave it too loose the mirror folds in the wind, I just cant seem to win!

Now my question is, is there anything I can do? short of using an Allen key every time I adjust them, I'm beginning to miss the mirrors on the Curvy as they had a folding mechanism.

They're meant to move.
Get some thread lock on the bolts and should be fine
