Thumbs down Magnecor wires?

I installed magnecor wires last week and the one wire keeps popping off the spark plug(bosch +4)! Does anyone else have this problem? Or has anyone written to the company?

Nope, I assumed the connectors loosened up in manufacturing or shipping and got a pair of pliers and tightened all the connectors so they made a solid "click" upon engaging the coil pack and plugs . Why write to them when you can easily fix it yourself in 5 seconds?

No problem- they're kind of tricky to squish but not squish too far, so a very long thin flathead screwdriver comes in handy if you squeeze too hard .

I don't have a good impression about Magnecore.
I am a crew of a race team and our Civic's magnecore wires kept popping out, too. And it was in a 12 hour enduro race. We had to duct tape it.
Maybe had a bad batch, but that was not a good experience.
