When it is brand new the interlocking pieces are very tight and keep it in place.

The wings will stay in there just fine until you have a couple of hard crashes. Then the friction fit starts to get a little less tight.

I had a crash from 55 feet up straight down and another spinning crash from a similar height. Both crashes were because I struck a tree. Only after that second crash did I feel like I needed a fastener on the wings.

I just put 2 dry wall screws straight down into each wing under the canopy after they loosened up.
