SO EASY TO BREAK!
I found that if I cram the towel all wadded up in a ball into these PLASTIC clips I can snap them easily! Ha! Just kidding here, I have never broken one of these clips because I watched the vids on them and use them correctly, i have had them on my belt for 5 years! The rod does work its way out sometimes but after some therapy and cup of tea I manage to...uh...push it back in. Phew! You gotta be kind when sliding them onto a pants belt, its just plastic but works fine if you treat your equipment right.
