I have included some pictures (if BBforums lets me attach with my low post rate) and as you mentioned the clip is thinner than the OEM RIM model. The clip does "click" to keep your BB in place the same as the RIM and the clip grips very well. I had a similar Verizon model for my 7130e and it worked well. I have had no issues with movement since I got it. I like the Blackberry logo on the front too. Let me know if that answered your question.
