Last refill blade I got from the Mercedes dealer had nice plastic retainer
clips. I found them way easier to install than the plain metal-strip
aftermarket type I was using before.
Not much difference in price either.
I sent Dave a note saying the same; 'off the shelf' Bosch rubber
blades inserts are about 3/8 inch too short, and don't wipe well (too
much tension on the blade frame).
The plastic snap on the M-B baldes, plus the excat size.
M-B should be criticized for not using standard sized blades. But the
blades are only $8.60, so it's hard to get really upset.
