Default crutchfield's dash kit is broken at the tabs that hold it...

the dash kit i got from crutchfield kit broke off. I know. my stereo has the compartment on top and the single din jvc on bottom. I think the bottom one way lock in tabs broke off because i can push on dash kit at bottom and it can move back. theres a rattle by the 2 screws that secure the radio AC bezel when driving bumpy roads and goes away when I push at bottom of crutchfield's dash kit, but this is just temporary solution. any brands you recommend that wont break the locking tabs when you lock it in place??

Also if I remove the headunit's cage that is locked folded into dash kit will i be able to reach into the remanining locking tabs to break them free on top. I will be replacing the headunit's cage and a new dash kit, but this time I will install headunit on top and opening on bottom.

have you tried contacting crutchfield for a replacement? usually those are pretty durable adapter plates.
