Rear view mirror falling off

It had a good run since the last time I fixed it, but it finally fell off today on the way home from work. Last time I fixed it, I used the Autozone mirror repair kit. That being said, I did fab up a mount to hang my radar detector from the mirror. It hung on for about 6 months. I know that's a lot of extra weight, but I like it better than having it suction cupped to the windshield. Does anyone know of something else that I could use to adhere the mirror to the windshield? Epoxy? JB Weld? (J/K about the JB Weld)

Are you talking about the metal stub on the mirror that keeps falling off?

The Epoxy seems good enough IMO. The Autozone stuff failed so time for stronger stuff.
