C; got a bag in front of me. They become embrittled with time. The "plug"
spoken of comes already inserted into the clip; there is no flash. Once the
clip is inserted into the hole, you just push the "plug" home from the front
side. I've _carefully_ and _gently_ used a screwdriver and a plastic mallet,
which overcomes the inherent 'stiction'; it requires no lubrication. This
design is essentially a "push rivet".
