K2 Motor Smoked Taillights

I heard a lot of buzz about the smoked tails from k2, so I got some and the reverse lights on the oems have little nuts to hold them in, and on the smoked ones I bought they don't have the little nuts, is that okay to let them just be held on by the provided clips?

Pictuers pls. I think you are talking about the ones that are plastic, and you use the nut from the oem to make the threads on the smoked ones.

I typically use one of the stock "nuts" and one actual (beefier) nut. Here's a picture i just took of my driver's' side light. Be very careful with the pins AND the clips when putting these in. They break if you as much as look at them

I believe that's why I used a beefier, but slightly smaller diameter nut. Sorry, it's been 4 years

I had to take the stock nuts and bend the pieces in order for them to grab and hold when I put mine on because they would just slide all the way. Never had an issue once I got them to grab.
