Bathroom Mirror - Rectangle, Beveled - Meridian Collection by Gatco
looks nice; could use better engineering
The mirror's appearance is about what one would expect from the pictures on the web site. Two things could use improvement in the design - 1) the clamps that attach to the mirror and are inserted into the wall brackets use two screws to squeeze the mirror between the two flat inside surfaces of the clamp. Unfortunately, these screws apply pressure to the mirror just at the apex of the bevel, resulting in less-than-optimum attachment of the clamp to the mirror. 2) since the wall mounting brackets are often attached to drywall or tile over drywall, there should be some accommodation for not being able to locate the mounting holes precisely on the wall - for example by vertically elongating the holes in the mounting bracket (there is already some horizontal play allowed when attaching the bracket to the mounting).
