New techniques are developed to show that the two-dimensional normal form for codimension one border collision bifurcations of fixed points of discrete time piecewise smooth dynamical systems has attractors which are themselves two dimensional. This makes it possible to prove the existence of these attractors for a countable set of parameter values which cannot be treated using the essentially one-dimensional methods in the literature.
