do you leave the ORVMs in Open position ? if yes then you can leave them in closed position and they wont appeal much to monkeys.

Buy a pair of rubber snakes (the ones that look life-like) and hang them from your mirrors. Monkeys are terrified of snakes.

Have you seen those monkey strip off the mirrors, Could this be a monkey trick done by a thief to steal the mirrors.

By showing monkey he is diverting your attention towards the animal and you guys think has a monkey trick.

rubber snakes work well. but monkeys over a period of time figure out its a fake.
cover the mirror with a black plastic bag, might work
