yeah, mine are all snap-on rails (or at least snap-on sockets were that they
were holding). I think the problem we have here is the rust as much as
anything. it's so humid here the clips rust, and then you're hosed.
have you ever tried the plastic 'clips' with the detent ball? I wonder if
they're any better.
