I really appreciate the audiable feedback of this design when it is properly snapped in.  This is very important in a manufacturing environment and helps make assemblies that are mistake-proof.

Agreed, there's nothing more satisfying than hearing the audible 'snap' letting you know that the exact amount of force has been applied to the assembly.
