Hi, I understand you want it to be snug, but if it is giving customers this much difficulty to put the clip in I know it would frustrate me. Also just a suggestion, but maybe you can buy clips in bulk, attach them and then send this out to make it easier for your customers. Just my thoughts. I know I won't buy something that part of it has to come from elsewhere and it needs to be put together with difficulty. This makes it frustrating for some of us whose hands don't work so well.
