I had the same "locking" issue as another customer but once I figured out to install the blade at an angle other than flat parallel to the windshield, the blade locked in with no problem. Good wipers for the price.

Easy to install. Clears windshield. Great price!
Good for rain and snow, but not ice
I agree with the other reviewers on here, installation is pretty tricky... You definitely have to have them precisely positioned or else they can come loose. Despite that, they work great when it comes to rain and snow, stay firmly on the windshield, don't squeak, don't leave streaks or chatter. But when it comes to ice, the frames freeze up fairly quickly and lose flexibility. (this is common of all metal frame wipers) thus leaving big patches of the windshield uncleaned unless you go break the ice off of them (pretty inconvenient while driving on the interstate) but honestly, for their price, they are a good wiper.
Hard to get them to click. But possible.
One afternoon I made 3 or 4 attempts to install these with the required noticeable Click, with no luck. Then I read a review that said they also had the same problem but it was possible so I tried again. It worked. But you have to rotate the blade until it is a full 90° perpendicular to the wiper arm. Then push the adapter towards (into) the hook. It didn't take a lot of pressure. When inserted you can see the two 'holder's extending out past the arm. Strange but they wouldn't go on at all unless installed at the 90 degree angle. Good luck.
These work really well was easy to install and the price was good too.
