Gluing them helps... some.

Trying to salvage damaged ones, I used sealant to help hold mine on; that helped keep them from dropping off, to some extent.

Oh, and I can't help remembering how I felt when I broke one by careless riveting!

raveson - Sorry that I don't have pictures or drawings to post. I did leave the ends open for drainage from the window channels. You shouldn't have any problems if you have some basic tools like a grinder, files, etc. Good luck!
