You were very wise to add the modification to your Corner Clipper. I made the similar adjustment to my clipper several years ago and I have had no problems or malfunctions whatsoever.Oh boy, my new toys came...

Oooooo... Clipped corners...
It seems plenty of them more or less last forever with no modification. But a healthy fraction seem to suffer the plastic breaking where it forms a lever compressed against the spring. Here's a link to where the failure and a repair method is described:Interesting. I never made any modifications to my Oregon clipper and have clipped thousands of counters. It makes sense why one might do so, and maybe I'll do it now to make sure it lasts for several thousand more counters.
Add me to that list. My first one broke at the notorious stress point after only a few hundred counters. I contacted Oregon Laminations expecting there to be some kind of warranty. The owner apologized and informed me that the device is actually made in China and the manufacturer provides no warranty. However, he was nice enough to ship me a new one for free since I had only had it about a month.The Amazon reviews for the product are full of people reporting it breaking, as well as various BGG threads
