Default ecode turn signal sockets

I've heard of people modifying DOT sockets to work on ecode turn signals. I must be doing something wrong because mine just fall down after a bit of bouncybouncy.

What do you do? Hotglue the socket in place?

Maybe swap in a socket that is a better fit. I'm running GM blade type bulb sockets on my 88 765.
Trying to understand stupid people is like trying to pick up a turd by the clean end.

Duct tape. Seriously, build up the socket with a little duct tape in the right place to keep it snug.

BTW, I'm only running the top, twin filament, bulbs in my '88 764 with E-codes. The ones I bought came with the correct sockets: See Post #5 in this thread: http://forums.turbobricks.com/showthread.php?t=348202
