They work fine if you use 1 3/4" finishing screws and a little caulk. Haven't had a problem with mine for over 6 months now...

I bought a brand new, $38.50 front passenger handle and both clips broke upon installation!! I EVEN GREASED THE CLIPS AND RECEPTACLES TO MAKE THEM SLIDE IN SAFELY, to no avail . I'm not sure, but i think the push pins broke the clips when i pushed them in. I remember testing the handle after pushing it in, but after i put in the pins, it fell out.
