Good smile nendoroid more clip is bad and suction cup update

Why buy a nendoroid more good smile clip? 
well, to put a figma on your computer monitor, of course!

but the problem is, they don't fit! At least they don't fit a standard size monitor. I have tested it out on my old gaming monitor 245bw and my work monitor, which is well respected as one of the best monitors, a dell U2410. the nendoroid clip fits neither. Considering that newer monitors now come in a 'slim version' perhaps this is no longer an issue. I wish they would have taken this into consideration.

this is the top of the monitor
doesn't quite fit

shows just how big the gap is

honestly, even if the clip did 'fit' I would have second thoughts about using it. The clip spring is seriously tight. I mean like hercules tight!

By the way, the suction cup in the top image is not stuck on the monitor, it is just there for counter balance. Kirino is free floating and there is a chance she could fall off. I would also like interchangeable suction cup sizes. I do not wish to stick the suction cup onto the LCD panel, but if it was half the size it would easily stick to the side of the monitor. 

_____ Suction cup update! ____

Akemi has had no problems floating since I stuck her on!
flying like a champ!

I forgot to mention when using the suction cup DO NOT stick the cup directly into the figma~!

take the end off your figma stand

and place it on the end of the suction cup, before attaching your figma!
if you do not do this, there is a chance you will damage the figmas mounting hole in her body making it loose when using the regular stand in the future.
