I had batteries pop out once when I first got it. I added a couple layers of sticky back foam to the bottom of the hold down bar. Puts more pressure on the battery. Have not had them pop out since.

I think a better solution would be to file or cut the plastic that the hold down screw goes into (the screws where you put the body clips through). Just lower the bar hold down completely. I just haven't gotten around to it.

take care
john
