i spent tooo much time earlier looking for one of thoes stupid clips.
You know usually when you loose a snap ring or anything of the type, there is a little "tingg" when it lands. There was no sutch noise so i looked where ever there was soft material except my jacket which was at arms length. i figured that i went pretty far.
it was chillen on my jacket which i was just about to yank up and vacate due to anger. Lucky i saw it!
