Just a small repair, hardly earth shattering but useful...

If you look closely, you can see the plastic on my corner marker
pigtail socket has gotten brittle with age, vibration has broken off
the locking tabs. It wouldn't stay in the lens housing any more.

Using a very small sheet metal screw and piloting the hole with
a #40 (3/32") gives just enough to hold it in place, it doesn't have
to be tight - just snug. It doesn't have to come all the way out
to change the bulb either, it supports it just enough to trap the socket
in the hole. easy deal.
