is this the way that HD quick detach windshield spring clips go?

    Hey Guys,

    I just installed a new HD quick detach windshield on my Fat Boy with aux lighting (part # 57400115), and I want to ask someone who has one of these if the spring clips up on the top are supposed to be the way they look in this picture. They were already installed on the windshield new in the box, but they don't seem to do much of anything, and I thought that I'd ask if they look right. The one on the left side (pictured) sits with a little pressure on the top of the bracket for the aux lights, but the one on the right doesn't quite touch.

    What do you think?

    What are they supposed to do, anyway?

    Thanks!

    Craig

    I only see one pic but it looks correct. I also zip tie mine to the round bar to prevent someone from quickly removing (stealing) it.

    Looks like they changed from Earlier times on my 09.... I use the oposite side but the clip,spring is different... Yours looks safer than the old style I have...
