Can't expect clips to last forever being in the elements…
Yeah, I’ve also noticed the clips tend to get sprung when I leave them attached to the lights in the attic. It’s a little more work, but I now prefer to remove the clips between seasons.

Which mounting solution would work best for gutters with gutter guards installed? I see they offer the line with the magnet bases which is pretty sweet but its 4x the price of the normal line. Ouch
I have not found any that I liked. Instead of attaching to gutter, I attach to the shingles. The quality of these clips are crap. After being used for a few seasons they get brittle and start breaking, but they are inexpensive.

Thanks for the pic. I guess this is how I'll have to mount them as well even though I like the look on the gutters a little more since you can see them a little better.

For the lights, I used C9 LED retrofit bulbs. The 12" spacing mentioned above sounds like a long distance between bulbs, but these screw-in retrofit bulbs are much brighter than the light strands you can buy in the box stores. I think the ones I'm using have like 5 LED's in each base. I went with warm white bulbs.
@Ware I may have missed where you mentioned but did you go with the Minileon or Pro Christmas bulbs?
