NAPA Fuel Filters?

So I picked up one of those NAPA Gold fuel filters in an effort to save a few bucks over the Delco. I figured it wouldn't be a big deal since I've got the 2.2 LT. I installed it and leak tested, all good, however I am a bit wary of the design.

It's got a plastic "pinch clip" that installs on the metal end of the fuel line, as opposed to the internal locking mechanism. Also, one of the quick releases slides back a bit farther on the new one than the Delco (however it doesn't pull off).

Anyone buy the NAPA filters and can verify the design durability? I'd hate to have a leak while cruising. As always, thanks for the help!
