blind spot mirrors?

Has anybody here seen blind spot mirrors like shown beyond?

I had them on my old rebel 450 years ago and I canīt find them anywhere to buy again. They are mounted on the mirror stems. I have searched the net up and down and there are none. Actually, I have small, round blind spot mirrors glued on the primary mirrors, bur I donīt like this solution a lot.

THX for some hints in this matter!

I adjusted my stock mirrors out to pretty much function as blind spot mirrors, though I'll still do a quick head check just to make sure.

If I need to see directly behind me, a slight lean to other side gives me that view.

CueBaller, how exactly have you done this?
Although I had or have blind spot mirrors, I make eye control as well, but they help me a little before I do this.

I’m toying with the idea of a bicycle mirror for the right hand side as they are generally small, If I can find a good clamping point somewhere.
My main mirrors are quite small and the field of view isn’t so good as the stock ones, so I usually have to head turn much more before I make a move.

Just adjust them out further so you see more of what's in your blind spot than behind you.

The stock mirrors are fully adjustable: up, down, left, right.
