Wiper Blades

Anyone know if I can install Rain X blades on my 09 Cobalt. I found them cheap somewhere, but have always just been getting Aamco blades and they just fit on the hook arm for the wiper arms. I see the Rain X ones seem to have some sort of pin system to install them.
Rain X seems to work good, but another bad thing is. I already have a extra set of Aamcos laying around and no receipt to return them if I can go Rain X.

Yep, like Michelin and Bosch with no pivot points. I also have them on my Mitsubishi. Better than most in winter. They outlast the Michelin and other by 2.
