Not sure if it's too late too help, but I had the same issue with the EZ lift bars (same thing as the Huskey brand). My dealer had the replacement clips with rivets. Easy to replace... pull the old rivet out.. I found that it helped to pry it up a bit using the old clip and a screwdriver. Once I had the rivet up a bit, I grabbed it with a pair of pliers, and using a counterclockwise direction, twisted it out. The new one just gets hammered into place. I found the new clip design much more sturdy than the old one, and haven't had an issue yet.
Best $14.00 I spent!
