Zip ties from now on!

There is a penny tech fix to keep from losing your battery cover. Take a small screw and install it between the plastic tabs on clip that goes throught the frame. The screw forces the plastic tabs apart and effectively locks the clip into the frame. The plastic clip is known to pop out of the frame and you think your battery cover is locked in and it is not, thus the cover flops over. I did this to my Sporty and it works. Supposedly HD has a new improved clip but I'm not so sure it's actually improved and worth the $$. A 2 cent screw solves the problem.
