    Well the original design had a notch to secure it. The design was too thight and it broke off. In the picture you can see the white residu from the notch.
    Maybe I redesign it and I will come back with a triple secured clip.

    Interesting ideas here. Some of the older bowls had a protrusion on them instead of being just flat to help prevent the boot from catching the clip. Further, the older floats were such that they would rest against the float posts and not just dump the fuel valve on the ground with the floats swaying in the breeze.

    Here's a picture of (formerly) my R50/5 with the dimple on the bottom of the float bowl.
