I've never had one of these clips come undone either... I'm a bit at a loss, because I like them, I like them a lot... This is the first gasser I've had them in, I wonder if it was a vibration issue...
sorry to sidetrack the thread... just double check your connections folks and make sure things are secure...
Agreed as already said; build using methods that makes us comfortable with the end results.
I feel that the best vibration detector and evaluator is our finger tips.
I keep all electrical connector away from any surfaces that have vibration. I leave them touchng nothing but their own wires. All wiring is fastened to a structure part within 2" to 3" from the connectors on both sides.
It may be visualized that the wires are holding the locked connector in thin air or where no vibration is finger detected.
Sometime it is a small puzzle as to how to route the wiring. All the fun of solving small problems during electronic installation.
I have seen many pictures with good examples of wiring dressing and I have seen pictures of wiring that looks like random spaghetti all over the space.
To each his own.
