As some others have mentioned, I havent found that the tips just fall off when the tool is turned over, however...
When using the tool to engage a clip, if too much pressure is applied to push the clip on the tool tip does lever away from the pressure due to a large amount of slop in the way the tip is clipped to the tool.
Also, when stretching a clip prior to placing it on the part, if you stretch it too far the tip will slip sideways and can bend the clip. The problem in both situations is that there is just too much slop between the toolheads and handle.
I also don't like the lack of a storage box for the tips, I hate having parts for tools strewn all over my toolbox. Because often this leads to one of the parts getting lost. A tool with multiple parts should come with a storage box for all the parts so they can live together.
This is a cheap tool and its performance is sub par. I regret buying it.
The positive feature of this item is that you can easily convert the pliers to one of four different heads. This also appears to be the major negative of this product. The center shaft that holds the interchangeable heads onto the grip does not stay in. It is meant to be kept in place by a sliding bar built into the shaft that is kept in place by the tension of a spring. In my opinion the shaft pin is longer than it needs to be and adequate tension is not maintained on the slide to keep the pin from falling out. It is also possible for the two pins from the grip that apply the power to the points to slip out, again because the center pin is too long. I replaced the center pin with a nut and bolt that fit and these now work really well for me. I don't hate these conidering the price I paid, but they could easily be top-rate if the pin was different.
Absolute garbage. Literally the worst tool I have ever purchased. Yea you get interchangeable heads but their prongs are too short to even be effective on C clips and it is flimsy and poorly crafted. If I dropped it on the ground it would probably break.
