The clip is very similar to the HotShot. It slides into the mount which can be attached either to the seat post or the seat stay.

I haven't broken-off anything. The mounts are similar to the PB Flash series, but a slightly different size, so not compatible. They will clip onto a back pocket but are also designed for the plastic mounts.

I love mine. They are great, and Niterider backs its products. If you have a problem, they'll either fix it or send you a new one. The board on my first crapped out. I emailed them, and they sent out a new one the next day. Nice folks!

It's pronounced, "Co-burn."

With that in mind, are you certain you are using the mount that came with it, and not something else, but similar?
No everything was as it came out of the box. I commute about 200 miles a week on very bumpy roads at times. The back of the Solas where the mount is is extremely brittle. Niterider sent me three replacements, and I returned the third one NIB to the original seller. Replaced it with a Light & Motion VIS 180 and haven't looked back.
