Fatal Flaw, pretty bummed out

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
True to size
Size Bought

Immediately upon adjusting the visor the very first time, the visor pivot broke! It now rotates somewhat freely, without catching at a few points, like visors should. I can see where the plastic piece broke, and it's strikes me as a critical design flaw. Too bad, it does look great, but the visor mount is reason enough to not get this until they figure it out.
