  • Patent number: 5479297
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a mirror assembly which may be mounted to a vehicle to facilitate the safe forward and rearward maneuverability of the vehicle. The mirror assembly includes a frame having an open end and having at least one movable surface. A fixed mirror and a movable mirror are mounted within the frame such that an edge of the movable mirror impinges upon the movable surface of the frame. The movable mirror can be automatically controlled via a prime mover to move relative to the fixed mirror, the frame, and the movable surface. The movable surface is biased against an edge of the movable mirror, and is displaced by the movement of the movable mirror so as to afford a clear line of sight through the movable mirror.
