Default S50 popping out of car dock while driving

I have a jeep and have had my S50 for a couple months now - was staying in the car doc just fine. I have noticed that it is popping up out of the doc much more frequently now - anyone have any ideas short of rubber banding it in place? Thanks - u guys are so helpful!

Up in the holes where you plug in the S50 to the car dock, there are little clips that you can bend to make them give a little more reisistance and consequently, hold the S50 tighter. I have had success doing this in the past, but I would be VERY careful anytime you mess with things like this. You think it holds it bad now, try after you break a clip off!

Im having the same problem, this is a redneck fix to the problem ive done this and my dock no longer rattles loose causing a lockup. i took a marlboro cigarette box cut about a 1 X 1/2 piece out then put it between the dock and the radio it fits snug and you cannot see it.

Finally, a great reason to smoke.

Thanks for all the suggestions - I tried the bending the clips out that are in the holes - works like a charm - i woulda NEVER found them by myself - thanks again for the help!

S50 hasnt popped out since!

I would definately try doing this again before i tape or stick anything to the unit.
