    Hi mulaz,
    I fitted two heiki lights in to my old van and they made a great improvement. I cant remember the clips you speak of? but if I didn't htink they were needed they probably ended up on te garage floor.:Doh:

    Are they speed clips for self tappers (they have holes in them) and usualy slip onto plastic parts lining up the holes in the plastic with the holes in the clips, so as to give self tapper a firm hold and avoid splitting a plastic hole

    clips

    Thanks but No i even double checked
    The only thing i can think of is to connect the 2 blinds fitted on the mini heki together.

    The clips have sharks edges so doing this would also stop them being removed??????????????????:Sad:

    If its what I'm thinging of, they clip onto the inner frame (inside the van) and are used to hold on the outer trim surround. Surprised there's only a couple of them but then mine are beggers for falling off. Have a look at the bottom edge of the inner frame and see if there's more there.

    Ah! me thinks i know what they are Imagine you have a fabric head lining and are cutting a new hole for the Heki Might they be used to secure the headling to the inner frame whilst the finish plate is installed, new instalation only parts:thumb:

    HI, The clips are to fix the inner blind to the main frame,once you have fitted your skylight, simply push them onto your main frame at regular intervals, and carefully line up your inner blind frame work with them and push into place. No problem, just replaced my 2 boring sky lights with Heki's, easy job, and no silly labour charges.
