The plastic that I am using is a little less brittle, and deforms a little
more easily. Makes it nice and "sticky" in this application. I am sure it
is possible to break them, but I haven't done it (yet?). And it doesn't
matter much, unless there is a supply shortage!
I think the key problem with these panels is that if one side comes loose
and the other doesn't, the panel becomes a long lever arm, snapping off
the plastic tabs. I have little doubt a stronger tab could lead to damage
to the panel's sockets.
