    When you mirror, the constraints dont mirror. Go in the family and lock the stuff down.

          mirroring something means that you place a complete new component with the same shape. It doesn't copy alignments, locking, only some dimensions and parameters (the ones you applied while in sketch mode and only reference the geometry itself), or workplanes it's based on. You need to redo all that stuff, and some extra that Revit does for you when starting from scratch (like setting a workplane). Basically: until you master the content creation, I'd suggest you stay away from this command. After you do master it, you'll find that mirroring does not speed things up in family creation due to all these limitations... It seems fast, cause you get the geometry in a few clicks. But it's not, cause you loose all intelligence.

          Just redraw it, way faster.
