We recently had a new camera fitted, with a monitor that clips to a rear view mirror. Despite assurances, the blinds now won't close as the neck on the mirror is too thick and too low to fit into the little cutaway on the blinds.
Yes, I have done a search. There appears to be one advertised on ebay but it looks as if it's roof- mounted rather than windscreen where the fixing is for ours. It says it's for 2015 vans, but if I go into the ad and put it details in it says not suitable.
So we're using an elastic band, but it does leave a gap.
Does anyone know if there is a different type of mirror available? Or any solution that doesn't mean dismantling the whole thing every night?

Anjistar heres a thread from not that long ago.
Did the blinds close before the rear view monitor was fitted, if they did then look at what’s fowling the cut outs.
You might need the stalk thinking down a bit so i clears the cap.
couple of pictures might help As it’s easier to see what’s going wrong

Anjistar My 2012 blinds did not have the cut out but with my monitor fitted mine wouldn’t close and stay but if I tilted the whole mirror and monitor bottom up it enabled the blinds to close and as you’ve said a big elastic band around the two handles kept them closed. It was a pain removing the monitor each time but that resolved the need. Have a try.

So this is what the stalk looks like, it slots onto a fixing on the windscreen (the angle of the photo is misleading, it looks like it fixes to the cab roof). The blinds will slide shut behind the mirror, but the stalk is too thick for the cutaway in the blinds (though it is in the right place), so they won't close.

You may need to pull the blind to the stalk and mark where the two meet, you can then think what to alter the stalk or the blind.
I would even try to get an old mirror from a scrap yard and see if it fits better
