I'm sure there is a way to have an safe but easily removable clip. Safe hinge mechanism is more important than easy removing imho. But so or so it's all just brainstorming and theory crafting.Your clip solution I've seen before. They're workable, but a bit of a pain to get on and off - perhaps difficult in assembly, and definitely tricky in hackability (since we want people to be able to disassemble the hinge so they can swap the parts about).
Not bad. The shape of the clip can have indeed an big impact on how good it will work. Would need testing of course, like the entire mechanism, and I don't have a 3D printer or anything like that.If the clip part was like this (Forgive bad artistry xD)
It would only have to slide into the groove and rotated couterclockwise and then could be held by the bezel.
Then you wouldn't have to worry about it coming loose, and there would be no trouble taking it out because of tight clipping.
