If your visors keep falling down even though you have tightened the tension screw, then the shaft on your visor mount has come loose. You don't need to buy a new one!!!
Here's how I fixed mine.
Just drill near the edge of the shaft housing all the way through the shaft and install a small roll pin. SIMPLE AND EFFECTIVE.
Just like it should have been done to begin with.

That could be taken to the next step by inserting one of the newer model visor posts from a different car; the kind that slide back and forth in addition to flipping up and down.
