    Just curious after I found one of the little rubber vibration dampeners falling off my gimbal today, I noticed there were only two of those clear plastic retainer clips holding the gimbal together rather than four. Any idea why they would only put two on, instead of clipping all four sides in?

    Cut them off and dispose of them.

    There is an easy way that remove these without breaking them. Slide the up onto the pin fully first (opens up the clasp) , let it sit there for 10seconds then very quickly slide it off. They will come right off without any damage, and can be reused many times.
